Down goes Playstation

Recommended Posts

As many of you have heard,The online playstation Network for the Playstation 3 has been down for 6 days,Affecting 75 million customers including me and my wife,who is extremely pissed.Of course much speculation and conspiracy theories are floating around as to how this happened.Im not bitchin,because im too busy most of the time to play online.There are even reports that it may be shut down indefinitely.How are some of you being affected and what are some of your thoughts?

Just another reason I feel xbox is better. We get DLCs earlier, and our services don't go out for long periods of time.

The solid theory that's out there is that one of the debug custom firmwares out there for the PS3 caused Sony to flip the switch as it allowed users to download stuff off the PS Store for free. The custom firmware also allows users to play on the development servers of the PSN.

 

Pretty much, Sony had to rebuild the authentication process of the PSN for consoles to prevent this kind of thing. It was also mentioned that the rest of the world was supposed to be going today.

 

Personally, I haven't been affected much by it. Although I do have both consoles, I hardly play them... Onwards with this boring week.

''Xbox has better games''

''PS3 Online is free''

There's always youtube.

 

Called "copyright" and butthurt media executives are either forcing people to watch extremely shortened versions of their shows (with different sound, in some cases) on their channel or going the VEVO route.

 

I did manage to snag a few episodes of South Park and Robot Chicken when just those three guys owned it. Those were the days.

 

Where is your "hurr its betar bc its free" logic now, PS3 users?

SONY, in an official statement, wrote that the cause of the downtime was an external intrusion on its servers, basically, it got hacked. The thing is, they don't know when its going to be back up again.

 

Seriously though, its not that big of a deal. If you're stressing out that you can't play Call of Duty or something, then go outside a bit more.

It'll be down for some time until they start fixing back the servers and putting things back to normal. While I do have a PS3 and play online, it doesnt really bother me much since I'm barely on it to begin with. For those of you who are stressing out over this shit, here's a tip, go outside or something, do something else with your lives.....

Lol! That's kind of hard to do if you don't have a life! I have a PS3 as well, and didn't even know the online server was out till I read this thread. Oh well, If I wanna Netflix, I guess I will be using the wii......

The reason PlayStation Network is down is because someone hacked the Network corrupting everyone's online accounts this pisses me off as well because of one dingbag millions of customers lost all their online data

I heard that some dude kept getting killed online in Black Ops, so, in a blind fury of rage, he hacked the servers, so no one could kill him. A little immature, and selfish, don't you think?

Yes thats just immature. You get killed in BlackOps, so what? Everyone gets killed!!!! Thats the point of the game! You dont take your anger out on everyone else who wants to play the game because you got killed. That's what the combat training mode in the game is for. It's to help you get better.

We do. MW2 and Black Ops DLCs (just saw the trailer for Call of the Dead, it looks sick) get one month exclusivity. Also, Lost and Damned and Gay Tony had one year exclusivity on Xbox.

Thats just a story similar to what happened on a south park episode about the world of warcraft

 

 

What really went down was a criminal hacking syndicate hacked into Play Stations database servers where everyones personal info is stored. User names, Passwords, Addresses, Credit Cards..All of the info in one place now is theirs and they will sell the info for alot of $$$ while its still good.

 

Hope alot of people dont re-use the same passwords for important sites...Everyone who had an account will need to get new debit / credit cards issued and change passwords.

Not like it can't happen to XBox either, but now I'm glad I decided to get the XBox over the PS3. lol. But other than the once in a while updates I download, I hardly use the online component of the machine. I just play without the internet connection.
