Sony Can’t Get it Up

A picture is worth 70,000,000 words accounts.


Update: The documentary, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles told us that Skynet would be launched April 19, 2011. This got me thinking how that date coincides with the PSN outage. Who knew it would all start with something so simple?

April 17-19: An “unauthorized intrusion” into Sony’s PlayStation Network servers occurs.

April 19: Sony notices that unusual activity is taking place on PSN, including servers rebooting themselves. Sony’s network team begins internal investigation, finds more servers were compromised. Sony discovers “credible indications that an intruder had been in the PlayStation Network systems.” Sony begins shutting down all of PSN.


"Um excuse me human, can I have your permission to launch every nuclear device on the planet, ensuring our future dominance over your pitiful excuse for an existence?"

"No, Skynet."

"Pretty please?" *bats laser eyes*

"Welllllll, ok. How could I ever say no to you, Skynet? You run along and tell John I say hello." *pats on head*
