PSN outage hasn't slowed PS3 sales

It seems as if Sony's current online woes haven't done much - if anything - to slow down sales of it's PS3 console, which is still outselling the Xbox 360 world-wide.

I guarantee they don't put it up by E3 or LA Noire release...sales will start hurting big time...

And yes I know LA Noire has no online.

Sorry, I must misunderstand BluRays.
Do they need online?
The disagrees to the above comment would suggest that they do.

kneon3021d ago

Actually they do, it's called BD live. But PSN shouldn't be required for that as I believe they go direct to the studios servers.

They're going to get it up before E3. Stop with the speculation already.

Soldierone3021d ago

LMAO okay...disagrees and somehow I was "speculating" Its common sense if it isnt up soon the sales will drop, end of story.

M-A-R-S-H-A-L-L3021d ago

Maybe because most people actually realize that they can have fun with their purchases, even while PSN is down. I wish people would realize that Sony didn't ask for this to happen. They're the ones suffering the most, considering the fact that they have to rebuild a part of PSN, spend a crapload of money for compensation among other things.

This PSN outage has introduced many gamers to the great library of singleplayer games of PS3

MastaMold3021d ago

@Istanbull well said :)

So if PSN was never down, gamers wouldn't play singleplayer games ? Wow, that seems to be what everyone says.

LMAO jezuz

what a trooooll! He's everywhere!

That's exactly what it means "Jezuz".

Ever had the moment of clarity and you decided to put the crack pipe down? That's, basically, what happened here.

fooltheman3021d ago

l.a noire... isnt even online... ^^

Fishy Fingers3021d ago (Edited 3021d ago )

It's almost as if your console still works without online.

bumnut3021d ago

It does still work, but online is a major function to be without for so long.

Hope its up soon.

kneon3021d ago

I've hardly played any online at all this year as I've been trying to get through my backlog of games. So PSN went down at the least inconvenient time for me as I don't need it at the moment.

Strangely though I've found I can still get game updates. I thought they would have gone through PSN but I guess that isn't the case for at least some games.

bumnut3021d ago

Can't believe that some people actually think that no online play for so long is not a problem.

Its like someone took away 50% of your game.

It is a black beast, with most compelling software,..

What is more surprising, is that MS is selling any consoles at all at that price point,..
