Hats off to Anom. I just hope they stay on the side of the people and dont "sell out" if members get caught... Well played people at Anom!

I believe that they did sell each other out, remember Anon?

Besides this won't work. Did OpSony work? because I still don't see other OS on my PS3.

I am not a fan of Anon. but "the enemy of my enemy is my friend". I hope Anon. can really pull through and make this work.

I want to know why their plan involves taking down Xbox Live and PSN? All the other sites they are taking down to protest the guys from MegaUpload getting arrested makes sense since they are linked to the government but why to gaming services?!

The only logical thing I can see there is; their both owned by huge businesses. Their whole aim is to raise awareness. If XBL/PSN get hit, people will search for why its down. Hence, you Anon will have done what they wish to do.

Sadly, its a huge inconvenience too.

Your telling me! It's like if some oil company CEO got arrested and then people decided that we should shut down the toy industry.
