The PSN is supposed to make its return this week, but the Gamer Sheep website wonders if gamers have begun to accept a world without it.
That's a question? Come on...
That's just a retarded question!
I'll keep it short: YES
What kind of effin' question is that?
now wait a second it's a perfectly legit question. For days now all you've seen is the fanboys saying "lawl who needs multiplayer, singleplayer is all you need!!1" so again why is this question irrelevant?
Dude, having the psn down temporarily for a few weeks is fine to catch up on a few single player modes, but NOT permanently. Stop trying to be a smart ass when you clearly know what those gamers are talking about... Damn. @pixel army.... For someone that blocks out "f**king" then spells it fully in caps later "FUCK" shouldnt be calling anyone else a moron;-)
(Two sided answer) Yes it needs to come back because gamers liked it. No because for the most part, it is a free service that could end up costing Sony millions in legal issues.
@army of darkness, don't try to use logic and intelligence with xfantrolls, they can't understand.

I am loyal PlayStation fan since 1995, why should that change? 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!
@Istanbull I agree about people leaving the single player experience but let's not discount the fact that people have been playing multiplayer games heavily since Street Fighter II and 007 Goldeneye. The problem is that most games nowadays do not have multiplayer on the same system anymore and that requires you to have PSN to play with a friend.
No not really i dont really care that its down. I hardly use it. And thats my answer.
Well let's see, I've already unlocked EVERYTHING in the Career in Modnation Racers, so yes I would definitely care.
No because I live in the year 1990 and online gaming seems like a thing of the future which I don't even believe is possible... /s
Not if we'd get PSN+ Don''t play online that much, but I''m really starting to miss my two weekly KZ3 sessions by now.
i'd never accept a world without the PSN. would seriously consider getting rid of my console if it never came back. not enough LENGTHY and GOOD SP games out there these days. guess i would just miss out on the few like Uncharted =/
More than mp though, I'd miss the weekly store updates. New demos and trailers, dlc, etc. But I'd miss mp a helluva lot, for sure.
PS3 gamers: "Ummmm.....yes; duh" Trolls/fanboys: "No!" "Noez! Mah info will be stolez!" "now wait a second it's a perfectly legit question. For days now all you've seen is the fanboys saying 'lawl who needs multiplayer, singleplayer is all you need!!1' so again why is this question irrelevant?" "considering that over 10 years, 2 wars, 919,967 deaths, and $1,188,263,000,000 later; America has killed one man" Only ONE man?? You're joking, right? I'm not justifying anything, but you can't seriously say that in the operations in the middle east, the US only got "one man"....
Wow. I guess I'm in the minority here. If the PSN never came back online, it would be a loss but I don't think I would lose any sleep over it. I still play my Xbox 360 and I haven't used XBL for anything - at all, for probably 3 years now. I get my online fix with my PS3 primarily - but I'm an older gamer. Gaming for me has always been more of a solitary activity unless I have the other gamers actually in the same room with me. If the PSN never came back online, I think I'd mostly miss the downloadable PSN titles - but like I said, I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
lol at the angry kids who can’t play online. you guys could just go outside? you know? fresh air? the sun?
Wow that was a stupid question. OF COURSE WE WOULD CARE!
ive gotten use to and have been playing sp and trophy hunting my only concern is that NOBODY will see those trophies
i wouldnt! and same with the older generation of gamers! only the new kids on the block would actually cry like babies if it never came back! i hardly ever play multiplayer games cuz i dont really have time for it and dont find it that attractive of a prospect to be honest
Depends if my 360 gets some new games or not I guess
If my 360 could play infamous 2, Twisted Metal, Uncharted 3, Killzone, and so on hen I wouldnt mind so much. But since that isn't likely then I would care if it never came back lol
@TheBlind the question is have you ever attended an english lesson? LOL
if my ps3 could play gears of war, alan wake, halo reach, AC6, mass effect and splinter cell conviction I would pay the $150 they want to fix the YLOD
That is why I own all of the consoles. I don't want to miss out on any exclusives no matter what system. Gears, Alan Wake, Uncharted, GOW, Killzone, Mario, doesn't matter as long as I can still play them. I don't understand the reasoning behind only owning one console and claiming it is the best. Doesn't make sense to me
In other "news"..... Do you think any radical Muslims are upset over the death of Osama Bin Laden? Sources say they may be.
does it strike you as odd that they dumped the body at sea? i dont think they got him they're just trying to give justification for the whole invasion of afghanistan and iraq thing to say that they have results but considering that over 10 years, 2 wars, 919,967 deaths, and $1,188,263,000,000 later; America has killed one man. All this and america has no nhs and mass unemployment and little financial security for its citizens. Would you consider this a victory?
Unfortunetly, there will never be any "Victory" from this whole situation. The country is happy that Osama is "dead" but what's next?? Where do we go from here??
Was very smart to bury him at sea... Had they buried him on land it would have driven radicals to make a shrine of his burial site.
(www.guardian.co.uk/commentisf ree/2011/may/03/bin-laden-death -us-patriot-reflex?mobile-redir ect=false) its a great read
well said , if people can't see the truth then they are really stupids and don't know anything about the life in these countries .. America government is envolved to the terrorsit that happening in middle east and afganistan , Osama bin ladin is just a tool for them to order him and to hide the truth .. i won't believe them now even if they shows a body because of the fake picture and to all the things they did and doing to the middle east...
I think that they may have found him already dead and came up with the brilliant plan to say that he was actually alive until America ended the life of 'the bad man' to have Americans cheer over the fact that 'they' saved the day.
bin laden is not muslim , he's just like sadam , muslims don't kill ! we are all want him dead .. but claiming they killed him without showing the body is stupid , it's like fooling an animal , it's obvious fake because elections are coming soon , he claim he did something good to fool americans that he do good things to vote for him , i already talked about this , look at my old comments.. so be happy with the fake news , it's really stupid believing on governments because they are the real terrorists , just look at the middle east , the rulers and the governments are killing their own people and Obama just say stupid things , he say to the king stop just to show people he is good but the truth is he let them do this to us ...
no sony online would be a catastrophy for gamers and the competion.if theres no competition then theres no one pushing new boundaries.it wouldnt bother me that much if i had to get a 360 as the games i like are multiplatorm any way. ie battlefield,crysis ect. but it would suck in the respects that id have to pay for the online part and get used to the terribly uneven analogue sticks of the MS controller.
Sony aren't pushing any boundaries as it is. What makes you think that would change anything?
common sence makes me think that brother. if microsoft were alone it would be very poor year in year out games made.take fifa and madden for example.same shit every year with tiny tweaks. competition creates bigger and better things pushing the boundaries instead of sittin on the fence like cod games do.
go back to your 360 and stop posting this shit. Seriously all you did was post this to get hits on your craptastic website. Grow up.
@TheGamerSheep We know year in and year out Sony always pushes boundries on every front. But what doesnt push boundries is your lame @ss article and lame @ss site.
Nah wouldn't care. I have XBL.
I have XBL too, but there are a lot of games coming out that I can't get for the xbox, and quite a few of them happen to have MP. This is such a silly article.
I have a 360 but no XBL (not worth it) and i havent bought a game for it since 2007-2008. I got Halo Reach from MS for free but i dont play it (dont like it)
I went ahead and got a month card while PSN is down, and also to get back into some Gears 1 and 2 before before Gears 3 drops. Want to get in that beta though.
WRONG. your opinion doesnt matter because the article addresses a shift in peoples need for psn. its saying that users went from using it, to not giving a shit that its gone. yeah...you own a ps3, you even admit its collecting dust: so youve obviously never given a sit about psn, even long before the service was down. your not part of this supposed "shift" which is why your opinion doesnt matter. if you use context clues, youll see that the writer IS infact asking if real psn users care that its gone, which is exactly what makes this article "so fucking stupid", stupid. u mad bro? ya..u mad.
I'm sure people would care.... Console gaming has been forever changed with the introduction of the internet and broadband connectivity. But questions like this are pretty stupid.
Oh My God. I can't believe this got approved
Okay we have offically reached the bottom of the Sony question barrel. Only the stupid questions left.
Stupid question, stupid article, stupid website.....N4G is starting to severely annoy me.
I'm with you man, every time I get on N4G I see about 10 stupid articles about PSN. I know PSN is down they don't have to remind me every five minutes. I want PSN back so I can play. Also you get your bubbles taken down just for expressing your opinions, like while ago just because I said gears needed some weaponry balancing and bam rabid 360 fanboys with foam on their mouths popped one of my bubbles.
yes you're right 360 fanboys are rabid, but so are all fanboys, of all strips. Both sides will take em. 360 fanboys just like to play innocent more
A few weeks won't kill me, but never would definitely cause me to croak.
Would you care if the PSN never came back? I would answers this question but I pretty sure by the time I come back a bunch of disagrees and only one comment bubble. peace.
Considering Netflix still works and I don't really play online anyway, no I wouldnt care. However, people who do play online certainly would care.
Nope I wouldn't, I'd just play MAG Offline.
no i wouldnt not care, spending over $300 for the system,PS+ 50dollors, and all my games well over 1500 mark.what a fuckin dipshit that made this article, we just like to waste money and not play online games anymore... what a fuckin idiot sorry if i hurt anybody feelings lol but yeah....... and yes i do care if it never came back on
i personally wouldn't care, reason being i'm a single player guy but i know 90% plus gamers would sell their PS3s lol. And that means live price = whatever the f#ck M$ wants to charge for it. Basically pray that PSN never goes the way of the dinosaur.
Would anyone care if the internet itself never came back on? Yes people would care, just like PSN. What a dumb question to ask to get hits.
I facepalmed so hard i'm surprised I haven't redecorated the wall behind me.
theres a reason why i bought a ps3 over 360 lol. Lets see free online,bluray,more and varied exclusive games, built in wifi, web browser. I personally believe its the better console and it sucks what happened but when psn does come back I'll be all the more happy.
Anybody with a PS3 wants the service back unless you are just stupid. PSN is not bad in any way for a free service. It runs just as good as Live but is free. I am actually a PS+ subscriber since is has launched and have been really happy with all the free and discounted content that I have gotten thus far. The PSN outage has allowed me to play a lot of single player games that I missed out on while it was up as long as a lot of downloaded titles I have gotten through PSN. I would be glad when the service is back up so I can work on some online play for awhile 8)
No thanks, I'll stik with the "staring at wall" thing... site wants - click, click...
" A site for gamers who want to follow us to gaming paradise " The sheep may but I'm not following you to the slaughter.
wow. what a retarded question to ask. no one has "moved on with their lives" and forgotten about psn you dumbfuck. im positive almost every active psn user wants it back. but what exactly do you want people to do about the network being down? cut ourselves and hide in dark corners until psn comes back? is the world supposed to explode at a gaming networks downtime? no retard- as annoying as it is, you just have to wait it out. just because we have no choice but to wait till all functions are restored, doesnt mean anyones abandoned it. thats one of the most stupid use of a fallacy that ive ever heard in my entire life. the main whole in your logic is this: youre trying to say that since there arent riots in the streets over psn downtime, that people really dont care about it. are you retarded? psn wont be down forever. its been down for a little less than two weeks! if it was never coming back that would be a much different story, but itll be back very soon. what in the world do you think would happen if xbox live went down for that amount of time (which it has. google it)? the same exact thing- pissed off avid xbox live users would wait until their service came back on, while gaming on single player in the mean time. im pretty sure there would be no rioting going on because xbl users cant play gears. every single day i wake up super pissed that i cant play mortal kombat online because of this psn fiasco. but you know what i do? i continue to wait. AS ANY NORMAL FUCKING PERSON WOULD. lol im pretty positive this is for flamebait. but if its not, and in fact you display this sort of logic and reasoning behind every opinion article you write no matter the topic...damn do i feel bad for the website you work for.
