I wouldn't mind not playing games online, but not being able to sign into PSN makes it unable for you to watch netflix :-(
Oh well. I will just watch LOTR on Thursday night.

I have watched LOTR far too many times myself....

Sometimes I just throw it on for background music...LOL

I always make sure I'm planted in front of the TV for my favorite parts

Otherwise some scheduled downtime would be devastating.

Dragon Age origins for me, trying to platinum. Either that or GT5 endurance race I'm in freaking 24 hour endurance race. Already 6hrs into it still a long way to go
r21  +   1166d ago
well good luck man, for that plat and or 18 more hours on GT5, think you can handle those hours?
dalibor  +   1166d ago
Not all at the same time haha. But given time yes. But I do know one thing getting the platinum for GT5 might be next to impossible. It's weird sometimes I feel like getting a platinum for a game and other times I don't even care about trophies.

poor service for poor ppl
dalibor  +   1166d ago
That's uncalled for. Steam is also free does that make it a horrible service? Just b/c you pay for a service doesn't make it the best you know. Hell steam might be better than psn + xbl. But all services are good in the end.

Lol chela its funny you say that so in other words; Only dumbasses pay to use their own bandwidth... Coming from a PS3 / Pc gamer you foolish child...

Xbox just fn charged me without asking. After 8 years of Live F MS. Im done with that bs.
WetN00dle69  +   1166d ago
NO they didnt charge you without asking. Its not like the service has a mind of its own. It was YOUR fault for not removing the card from your account. Your fault and no one else!

So PlayStation is dying cause of a scheduled maintenance ok.......
Killman  +   1166d ago
Sony gets hacked, they get criticised. Sony tries to improve the security of the network, they get criticised.

................? Anyone else see a problem here?
