Just to make it clear tonight, the final question asked at the PSN press conference dealt directly with the subject of Anonymous.

A Japanese reporter asked what involvement, if any, this infamous group had with the latest PSN intrusions.

Kaz Hirai, Sony’s EDP and Ridge Racer‘s #1 fan responded stating that Anonymous has not been implicated in any way with the current attacks.

Anonymous themselves (whoever they are) have also denied any involvement in the recent attacks.  Does this rule them out completely?  Of course not, but it’s safe to say someone else was likely responsible.

Sony is currently working with the FBI and Department of Homeland security to find out who is responsible for the intrusion, but so far they have no reason to implicate Anonymous.
