The hackers that ruined Christmas 2014 have been arrested

I actually have quite a fond memory of Christmas morning in 2014. My cousin had come over with his family and his son wanted to play NBA 2K15. I figured, why not? I'm never going to touch the game (which came as a pack-in with my PS4), so w...
