"Hello, SONY.
We are Anonymous.

It has come to the attention of the Anonymous activist community that you have chosen to stand by the Stop Online Piracy Act. This act will halt online businesses and restrict access to many sites for many users. Supporting SOPA is like trying to throw an entire company from off a bridge. Your support to the act is a signed death warrant to SONY Company and Associates. Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift, and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not. Sony, you have been warned.

To those doubting our powers. We’ve infiltrated the servers of Bank of America, The United States Department of Defense, The United Nations, and Lockheed Martin. In one day.

For their approval to SOPA, we have also declared that our fury be brought upon the following persons. Justin Bieber. Lady Gaga. Kim Kardashian. and Taylor Swift.

Operation Blackout, engaged.
Operation Mayhem, engaged.
Operation LulzXmas, engaged.

We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.

Supporters of SOPA, you should’ve expected us.

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is the highly controversial bill that, if passed, would give the US government and copyright holders powers to block access to “rogue websites dedicated to infringing or counterfeit goods”. But SOPA has received growing criticism by free speech activists and tech companies like Google and Facebook due to the vague terminology of the bill, which could mean sites like YouTube (or even PSLS) could be blocked for having copyrighted material submitted by users rather than the actual site owners.

With Sony being one of the largest publishers and producers of films, music and games, piracy has severely impacted their profits, and have a vested interest in SOPA being passed. While it’s fair to protest SOPA and any company that supports it, Anonymous’ actions earlier this year showed that the group is willing to let normal consumers suffer from their attacks.

It’s important to note that Anonymous have no central leadership, and this video seems to be the only declaration of war against Sony so far, so it’s hard to tell just how many Anonymous ‘members’ are actually behind the new attack.

PlayStation LifeStyle will keep you updated with further coverage of Anonymous and the threat, as it develops. In the meantime, we must reiterate the importance of ensuring your password on the PSN is different to other sites."

I Hope this won't happen again. Eek!

Doubt that this is really going to be be a legitimate threat, lol. The membership regarding Anonymous is so chaotic that almost nothing is truly official unless they actually decide to truly take their words into action; on the other hand, if Sony does end up getting messed up again (along with the other individuals mentioned in the article), then, well....Life's unfair, lol. :-P

Although that looks like Anonymous threatening to attack Sony, in essence it's actually it's Anonymous threatening to attack us all as PSN users... and that annoys and offends me. Just on principle.

I concur- I understand that Anon is trying to protest SOPA, but threatening the safety of PSN user's credit cards and passwords is not the proper way to do so. There's ways to get your point across in a respectable manner, and this is not one of them.

I'm not sure they're planning to attack PSN, rather Sony itself by exposing all of its server data. It's amazing how human nature is, how far people draw the line, whether it's doing something wrong for the right reasons or doing something right for the wrong reasons.
