    Everyone makes their mistakes, but Sony have just lost a lot of money with this huge mistake.

    Sony accidentally offered the movie 'Armored' for free to download on the Playstation Store, but seeing as it is currently being showed in cinemas, it was a bit of a money loss for them as people have now got it for free without having to pirate it by torrents and other illegal methods.

    It took 5 hours for them to fix the problem but by then it had been downloaded excessively and people were playing it.

    Sorry about the title.

    You know all the OP has to do is edit their post, 'Go Advanced' then edit the title that way(that always works for me at least).
    Anyway shame I've been on AC2 all day, missed this opportunity. Never mind though, torrents FTW Smile^

    This really pisses me off. I wanted to see that anyway and a bunch of people got it for free. I wish I would have known about this when it was happening. Oh well. How much did Sony lose?
