Additionally, proving that consoles can be hacked will give developers one less reason to make primary content on those platforms. Theft is bad but this is very good for us pc users.
Down with Sony.
Down with Apple.
Down with limiting our devices' potential benefit to us. Yes it's harmful to those who got burned, but in the long run it's a positive.
Except... no. Console players aren't gonna suddenly flock to PC because of this. PC users were getting hacked long before console users were. If anything all this is going to to is drive some PS3 users to 360.
There is no benefit to PC users. To non-gamers: PC... console, same difference. To console gamers PC gaming isn't even a consideration.
This may have been initiated because of Sony's previous actions, but I highly doubt this has anything to do with that. Sony got knocked down and all the vultures came out when they saw weakness. Sony is being attacked repeatedly, because they are scrambling to try and recover from previous attacks, thus, weakening them.
This has nothing to do with the group Anonymous, or avenging past actions. This is people stealing because they can. Period.
