Legal "The hacker hordes of Anonymous have transferred their fickle attention to Sony. They are currently attacking the company's online Playstation store in retribution for Sony's lawsuit against PS3 hacker George Hotz. A denial of service attack has temporarily taken down playstation.com."

"Each new Arkham City, Black Ops game, Blu-Ray rental or high-definition Netflix stream is a vote for the firmware upgrade.

I'm sorry to sound blunt, but that's got no relevance to this article.
It's not about what currently sells.
I couldn't care less if XYZ now sells better than ABC just so long as the manufacturers of ABC don't remotely nuke /MY/ equipment /post/ purchase.

It is relevant to the power of Anonymous - and of the geek - to bring about any meaningful change.

48 million consoles.

69 million PSN accounts. 17 million PlayStation Home social networking accounts. 4 million MOVE controllers.

This is the constituency that matters to Sony - and the PS3 - sans the OtherOS, SACD and PS2 emulation - seems to serve it very, very well.
