    After a week of outreach and negotiations, Sony Pictures found two companies willing to release “The Interview” amid unprecedented threats of hacking and violence: Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp.

    The two tech giants on Wednesday began offering the Seth Rogen comedy at the center of a North Korea-linked cyberterrorism attack to rent or buy from their online video stores. The Sony Corp. studio also set up a new website, seetheinterview.com, to offer the movie directly.

    The obvious question is was this all a hoax to begin with?

    someone on reddit pointed out it is pretty smart to do it this way.. sony will get all the profits, and maybe if they are lucky the koreans will shut down XBOX network to retaliate them hosting it
