GamerFitnation's Gregory Laporte talks about the good that can come from the PlayStation Network being down.
This is a great time to get out and enjoy life. Don't let it pass you by!
After so many bad news articles... I like seeing more of these.
Thanks a lot! had something on my mind and i had to get it off my chest!
I'm actually glad the PSN is down, PlayStation was always about singleplayer, we must go back to our origins. I hope people will find the true meaning and essence and strenth of the PlayStation brand. Ofcourse, I love the PSN too, its part of the PlayStation family, but singleplayer above all!
I got to replay some great games and even finished a couple of games I couldn't before :)
I know right? I'm going to Vegas for few days, can't wait to get back from this trip and see the new PSN stracture.
You're going to Vegas, but u can't wait to get back? Shouldn't u be a bit dissapointed when u get back?
Why would I be disappointed?
Im done with PSN. @ Dart89 actually I have 2 PS3s, Im selling both.
You alway's say that and i will always reply you never had one to begin with xDDD Move along troll.
For the sake of argument, lets say we believe you. Could you explain to me why your post is even a little bit relevant?
He can't even answer for himself. Yeah, you don't have a PS3. Give it up.
- Try and get a girlfriend, maybe it'll cheer you up. Posting flamebait comments for attention is very, very pathetic indeed. Good luck with the rest of your life pal, this is the only kind of attention you'll ever get...and it's not even real. How pitiful.
I have two don't mind buying yours as well. In the end the PS3 is not only a gaming console.
I agree, I haven't even touched my ps3 sense online went down. I've been so addicted to NHL 11 that it causes me to stay up way into the mourning. This downtime made me realize that I need to stop that crap, once PSN comes back I won't go back into old habits... Hopefully.
You should watch the real thing.NHL playoffs are incredible.
Oh, I do. These playoffs have been quite amazing with all the close games, I agree.
Once an addict, always an addict ;)
Indeed. Those who disagreed must be addicted to gaming. Ive not played on my ps3 for days since PSN went down. Believe it or not, I aint even played on my 360 for a couple of days neither
poor effort kranny boy
I am so busy that I don't have time to game like I used when I was younger. I have the GOW collection to finish before LA Noire and I2 so I could care less at the moment. I have tons of single player RPGs to grind as well if necessary. MK is the only thing I wouldn't mind playing online right now. Other than that I can't really blame Sony for being attacked and wanting to prevent this from happening again. Plus the service has been stable for the most part and FREE. Cannot really complain in all honesty.
Enjoy the down time... Lets Play
TBH I dont really care about PSN being offline. Still got another 200 challenges in the challenge tower to go. PSN should be back up by then.
It's good for me because I can finally do some homework, chill with friends, play some single-player games (Fallout 3, Final Fantasy XIII, Valkyria Chronicles...), go to the mall and watch some movies, etc, etc... =)
Lol, I had friend say something similar. He said he can FINALLY study(for the final) yet he plays angry bird on his phone 20mins before the final XD
While PSN has been down I have sat in the corner shaking and biting my nails and checking N4G to see if it has come back. I also started doing crack cocaine and stealing from children to feed my new drug habit. Curse you hackers, you have ruined my life.
writing my final essays and i been able to exercise more
AAHHH, GOD! NATURAL LIGHT!!
http://www.moviewavs.com/ph... :P heh.
there are plenty of other things to do I am just really hurting from the PSN downtime because I recently bought socom 4 looking forward to competing online against other people. If I would have known the PSN would have been down I would have dropped my 65 on something else and got socom 4 later.
while we are at it, maybe the fact that all our personal information was stolen is also good for gamers... Maybe we will get into crazy adventures where somebody steals your identity and the government is after you and your running away. Ya that would be a sick movie I'd call it SNEA: Stolen Identity
I remember a time when there was no multiplayer...and I still played games and had fun. Hey...if 360 owners don't mind still swapping disks....i won't mind playing single player for a while longer... Lol...I'm joking!
have gamers forgotten how to play that these days?
To be honest most of my games are singleplayer anyway so the network being down isn't really a big issue for me. I do miss my friends however, I wish I had other ways of contacting them. :[
The only way to contact your friends is through the Playstation network? o_O
Sorry, I should of explained it better. I was refering to the friends I only know via the PSN.
I've been going back and getting trophies from my stack. I could be here for months doing this. I've gotten like 31 in 3 days time. http://i1224.photobucket.co...
O My God, there's a world outside. Incredible, it's like a video game.
loooool best comment ever
Dont you think it have awesome graphics? :D
I've been having a lot of fun replaying Bioshock. I even finished Mass Effect 2 and Singularity finally.
it helped me cut down on my gaming time it is a good thing, too much time on the couch is not good for you
disturbing to think of the reaction in the event of true adversity.
Single player is alright but I am a very competitive person and I find my gaming time to be much more enjoyable when I am able to compete against other actual players. Killing the computer in campaign is like mehhh to me. I love Uncharted 2's single player campaign because it had a great story but single player campaigns are usually very bland to me and they don't hold my interest for very long
I guess alot of People Aprove these idea maybe SONY Micosoft and Steam should turn off Online feature for 3 weeks and then no one would be mad am i right everyone can go and get some fresh air and do some sports and some other interesting stuff.
actually this is making my one friend actually play his singleplayer games that he always wanted to play but never did. like god of war, infamous and uncharted 2. its not all bad
I think it's been good for my boys.Seeing PSN was down they thought the ps3 wouldnt work so they are out playing in the sun and having a ball of a time.
this is the first time ive seen n4g comment section without drama :D
gave me time to study for finals!
Its been disgustingly humid out the last week, and gets worse everyday.
Come off it, we are talking about gamers here, for some going out just isn't a viable option.
SMH... I understand your frustration, but people need to understand that other then protect yourself personal info, there isn't really anything you can do. All the author is trying to point out is that you should make the best of a bad situation. If you find that discouraging while then good luck with that.
Seeing how I'm not a COD addict like the rest of you, I still got plenty to do on my PS3.
I hope they made some improvments to the network while it was down.
WOW Awesome article man, look at the turnout! Good Job for putting a positive light on a bad situation.
Wow, if you guys can't survive like a week of no online gaming, then thats just sad. Maybe now people can play all the single player story modes that they have never touched due to playing online all the time LOL
HEy I beat MotorStorm Apocalypse single player myself, so trust me when I say I need this down time.
Theres a reason why people dont play story modes. 95% of the time they arent very good. And for a lot of people, they dont have enough money to go out and buy new games to keep them occupied during the PSN outage. In my opinion the PSN is taking way too long to come back up which makes me more angry then hackers POSSIBLY having my info.
Them taking long to come back up should be the last thing you guy are thinking about. If there taking long to come back on line it's for your protection. You think Sony wants to keep it down for kicks? I feel you guys fail to realize that everyday the PSN is Down Sony loses money. So bare with them.
I only use the PS3 for PSN so this sucks for me.
With this down time I've been playing a lot of basketball jogging and some single player games like army of 2 assassins creed brotherhood and god of war 3.
The fact that people have to use PSN downtime as an excuse to do anything else is comical.
Watch NBA guys :)
the weather is terrible outside here, incredibly rainy. Also Demon's Souls is not getting any easier offline.
Great advice. People should definitely take advantage of the new sunny weather.
