Ghahahaa, It doesnt impact us.

11 hours? Holy smokes.

Terrible timing. I'd prefer it if it started at 3 in the morning and ended at 4 in the evening. Then I wouldn't even notice the downtime. Who plays in the morning? We have jobs, SONY.

your 3 in the morning may be somebody else 9 in the morning or longer dont forget time zones buddy...also some of these have to be fake.....most of the time i can still go to the store and sign out and back in to play online

.....and you should be working on monday anyway so it shouldn't impact you. I won't notice it, I will be at work all day.
Ace_Pheonix  +   1003d ago
From 4 P.M. to 3 A.M.? I do not envy your job then! I'll be working all day, however I'll be working from 6.A.M. to 4 P.M. and enjoy unwinding at night playing a bit of BF3.
Ares84HU  +   1003d ago
No, during the day man. During the day!! I thought it was clear.

Wow ace you are stupid he meant different country time totally like japan for example when in your country is morning in the other one evening etc etc
Ace_Pheonix  +   1003d ago
I wasn't replying to him, buddy. Don't go off and attack someone when you aren't competent enough to understand what is being said to whom. I understand time zones, I would imagine the network would be different for different regions, but maybe not. As far as the Americas are concerned, no matter what time zone you are in, that's a stupid time to take down the network.

Maybe the people at sony don't like the graveyard shift they are human beings just like you.

Perfect time to stick in the God of War trilogy then. Have to prepare for Ascension! :P

What was that quote again ? "It only does everything" ? LOL
cayleee  +   1003d ago
The Network is free to use ok? you get that? There is no other network that allows you to play online for free.

They probably have to take it down cause it gets too costly for them and that's understandable. Besides most of us Playstation gamers dont play online, we have our exclusives. I am still playing Uncharted its so amazing.

Well actually it's free to play online on pc and it's also free on the Wii. You only have to pay on the 360 as far as I know
cayleee  +   1003d ago

Who cares about Wii online and as for PC online gaming its just too serious too much teamwork. PSN is just the best and its the only one truly free, who cares if its down most of us dont go online anyways.

Back to playing Uncharted.

Xbox 360 also has downtimes...why do people come to say something stupid?
xPhearR3dx  +   1000d ago
Please link me to the last time XBL was shut down for 11 hour. XBL doen't schedule downtime, when shit hits the fan, XBL is down for like an hour at most. It's a goo thing when these are news articles. If someone planned on playing, now they know why they wont be able to connect instead of expecting to play their favorite game online, only to find out they can't connect and have no idea why.
ironmonkey  +   1003d ago
I guess i can play my 360. I guess.
Myst  +   1000d ago
Good thing I'll be at work and still have some RPGs to play.
