Sony’s PlayStation Network hacked? Think again!
It appears that on August 14th a pastebin article was supposedly posted by Anonymous, that the infamous Playstation Network (PSN) was hacked once again, mirroring the incident in 2010. (http://pastebin.com/HUjZPaF3 - expect the site to be busy and get a “page cannot be displayed”)
According to a (now removed) tweet by Shane Bettenhausen, who is with Sony Computer Entertainment America’s Business Development department, the Anonymous hack claim “totally fake.” Sony’s Playstation twitter account confirms that message.
However, this should once again remind us, that with today’s completely one-sided and totally unconscionable End User License Agreements (EULA), where Sony (and other video game publishers) remove the right for a class action lawsuit and absolve themselves of any responsibility, that there is no easy legal recourse for the end-user or gamer.
Look at it this way folks… At least no 3 month PSN outage? *sly grin*
