Editorial: The Upside of PSN's Downtime - GamePro

The PR disaster that is Sony's handling of the PSN outage is, of course, a very bad thing. But there's a side-effect to such outages that is often welcome.

The story is too old to be commented.

No, I would rather talk. Go buy a mic and help your team.

we are the gamers dude!
we are the resistance!

if you don't like T3-cool

its just to point out that we are the game
we are the gamers
we are the network...of gaming

i dont know how else to explain my love for gaming and the stance i have on being a voice that advocates something other than "online" gaming.

long live the gamer.

Is this guy a single console owner ot something? Wait I didn't see the GamePro part in the title. One would figure with the money they have they could afford to buy a Wii, 360 or PC for their staff.

Im sick of articles tell me what i should do because PSN is down.

Single player games are fine but i prefer multiplayer.

Many people play multiplayer games because they are a cheap form of entertainment. Not everyone can afford to be going out all the time.

I have been out in the sun, I have went for a meal, went to the cinema, went to the gym, went for a run, walked the dog countless times, watched TV, read a book, done some work from my work whilst at home. I am still wanting to play online games to pass some time in a relaxing and competitive fashion.

If you could not play any single player games for weeks on end im sure people that don't enjoy multiplayer would be annoyed too.

Playing X game online costs me nothing, if i go out with friends it costs money, generally doing anything other than watching TV will cost you money.
