See, we can rationalize this all we want, but the masses are totally buying into this now. "Sony got attacked by anonymous, and hey they hacked Sony a couple weeks ago, so it must be true now." Sony's managing to take this huge fuckup of theirs and spin it into positive P.R., the masses are eating it up. I walked into radioshack monday (before this was announced, the whole anonymous tagling on SoE servers), and someone was talking about how Sony's "Fighting the good fight" against those hackers. 3 people jumped into the convo (one being my coworker) and started chanting Sony. I had to tell them to start looking into their information better, which to me being labeled a 360 fanboy (lol failbox).
People are fucking idiots.
