Sony had filed suit earlier this year against Mr. Hotz, accused of putting information online to circumvent the security system of the PS3 and play pirated games. "We want our consumers can benefit from our aircraft and our products in a safe and fun, and we want to protect the work of engineers, artists, musicians and talented game designers who create games for the PlayStation and support the PlayStation network, "explained an official of the General Counsel, Riley Russell.

"Sony is pleased to turn the page of this dispute." ANONYMOUS ATTACK HELD ITS COMPUTER Mr. Hotz has also assured to have no link with the group Anonymous Internet activists who had called for retaliation against Sony because of the charges against Mr. Hotz and another computer, Germany, Alexander Egorenkov .
