PSN Return: The IGN Response

IGN - If you just woke up, big news: the PlayStation Network is back (or will be soon depending on where you live). It's not everything -- you can play online, sync Trophies and message friends, but the PlayStation Store isn't working -- but it's better than the nothing we've had for nearly four weeks. The hackers attacked, Sony shut down the network, and we've been in the dark. (PS3, Tag Invalid)

Sony's stock just went WAY up. Millions of people across the world have been waiting for this day. Everyone will be on this service this weekend! Gamers will so value and appreciate Sony's effort to get it back up. It's truly a great day to be a gamer.

More like tomorrow (well today, since it's past midnight) around here (I'm in Brazil).

I don't think South America is top priority and the servers have to be put back up progressively so it will take some time... But just to know it will finally be back up and running again is great!

I don't get it. Why did this article heat up so fast?

PSN is back up. Who gives a f**k what IGN has to say? It's time to play some games!

Why is an IGN have the Anonymous image on it instead of a IGN logo or PSN/PS3 Logo?

And IGN has put out more skeptical and negative PSN articles since it's been down than any blog or main stream site combined. Screw off IGN, I am syncing up trophies from all my awesome SP PS3 exclusives right now and then I am getting on some KZ3 and Portal 2!

Sh*t, I've already started enjoying a bottle of Bacardi Torched Cherry to this new PSN development.
Even though it has been nearly four weeks for the PSN's downturn, I don't judge nor hate on Sony for it.

For one, because it was a result of some stupid, f*ggot external hackers akin to or actually Anonymous who are so God Damn short-sighted that they do not realize that what they do to Sony's public servers affect the same damn people who share the same common interests as they do.

For another, I do not quite base my entire livelihood on playing online, so even though going without Killzone 3 Online for the past 4 weeks has been a frustration, it hasn't quite lead me to ditch the Playstation 3 for any other console. After all, the new Twisted Metal, Uncharted 3, Dark Souls, and Infamous 2 are enough to compensate for any of the PSN service shortfalls.

you know from all the hate articles
ign has done to get hits its still nice to just get psn back. I like what kaz said we are safer than before but again syber attacks you can never be 100% safe

hopefully both ms and sony will learn from this and from here on till the end of this gen and on to next gen we get much better and much more secure networks.

and nintendo which will be doing its first actual online with new console please also take notes

kz3 here i come

so many people have been waiting to play mortal kombat,portal 2 and brink online best of luck to everyone

peace out good night

Is it me or did they just conveniently place that fanboy's comment first on the list of psn users they "reached out to"?

i bet on tuesday sony will have a great playstation store relaunch in north america with tons of new great content and a nice "free" gift to everyone for waiting patiently for the service to get back up.
MrBeatdown  +   1170d ago
I'm sure we will get a couple weeks of massive updates as they work to find a spot for the content that should have been released over the past three weeks. I don't think they will do it all in one though, since all the game releases for a month would be crammed into one week. I think they will spread it across a few updates, but still, it should be a pretty sweet few weeks, especially with the freebies they will be giving out.

I'm not holding my breath for the store to be back on Tuesday though. But it sure would be nice.

At least you're on the map. Freakin' Puerto Rico is on the map. However, Canada isn't. This is one of those times that being an American in Canada is frustrating.

Haha this is great, Sony will turn the PSN relaunch into an epic win, instead of something that just needed to happen.

Is IGN a 360 fanboys/fangirls??.

Why is that so many PS3 gamers pissed off?.
commander  +   1170d ago
ign has always preferred the 360. Now whether or not they are a fanboy site is another thing
