PSN users - How do you feel about the continued outage?

Multiplayer gaming is immensely popular (people like Adrian Kingsley-Hughes who mostly play single-player are like the dinosaurs - a dying species), and for many not being able to play multiplayer and get access to trophies and achievements and so on renders the console next to useless. So rather than allow it to gather dust, some are selling it in order to finance a new console purchase.

How long can this continue before gamers start migrating to other platforms?

The story is too old to be commented.

All work and no play makes M-Easy something something.

Lv 150 in Sacred 2 singleplayer, awesome game.
Modding Just Cause 2 PC, lots of fun.

Did PSn go down, cause i diden't notice.

mtom3452d ago

Screw this. I just bought an xbox for my online fix. Ill still buy the multiplats on ps3 (la noire for example)

thereapersson3452d ago

Your trolling is unnecessary, even though what you state is a truthful statement.

LA Noire on PS3 *is* on one disc.

Blacktric3452d ago (Edited 3452d ago )

I'm collecting singleplayer trophies for GTA IV (those darn flying rats) and replaying Uncharted and also earning trophies for it on my new account. I still miss being able to play online though.

Boody-Bandit3452d ago (Edited 3452d ago )

Even though I am a PS+ and XBL member, most of my gaming is done through single player games. I only jump online with friends once in a while. PSN being down has no impact on my life what so ever. I am not discouraged that it is out, and although I will be glad to see it's return, I wont be jumping up and down like a kid on Christmas morning when it does.

These articles, most of them, are just lame. It's Spring and soon to be Summer, if this was happening during the Winter this might have more of an impact on me but I enjoy fresh air and single player experiences too much to care right now.

Most importantly I know that this happening was not Sony's fault. Because of scumbags they have to do everything in their power which most likely will end up costing them a couple billion dollars, to protect themselves and their consumers against future attacks. PSN will return when it's ready, period.

DaTruth3452d ago

I'm alright until I officially hear I've waited even longer to play BGE-HD. Bad enough I had to wait 2 extra months, but it was coming in May and May is almost over!

I hardly play online anyways. Only thing dumber than people is people online!

Active Reload3452d ago

Ask and they will answer....

badz1493452d ago

Im more annoyed with the amount of pointless articles such as this than i am the PSN outage, go figure.

JUDALATION3452d ago (Edited 3452d ago )

I bought a 360 Two weeks into this fiascle... and many of my ps3 pals are also... You can get a used 360 for a good price nowadays and I suggest yall do the same.

I like Live it puts psn to shame and its worth the money. I find there is less lag and more mics on Live. I live in the USA and it must be that Xbox has more servers here. I traded my Black ops game as well and the game is better on my 360 and I am engoying the new maps...

You really need 2 consoles this gen and steam to get the gest gaming experience. From now on im only playing exclusives on my ps3 because the live service is way better than PLUS... WORSE MONEY I EVER SPENT.

thereapersson3452d ago

You really are one of the worst, most obvious trolls I've ever come across on this site.

3452d ago
DelbertGrady3452d ago

Yeah. He must be trolling because he prefers Xbox Live over PSN. /s

SoSLy3452d ago

I bought a 360 too and it's the best ever, I love it so much. Live is SOOOO MUCH better than PLUS... /sarcasm

"live is better than PLUS"

dumbest line I read today, gj moron

cemelc3452d ago

"because the live service is way better than PLUS... WORSE MONEY I EVER SPENT."

LOL, youre joking right? plus has given great discount on games, DLC, premium themes, free games and more, what have live given you??? nothing so STFU and start trolling somewhere else.

PSN = live minus the 60$
PSN PLUS better than live and minus 10$.

Omar913452d ago

maybe he just likes xbox better then psn.... you guys seem like your going to lynch him for that. its just crazy how on this site if your not a psn fanatic you are consider a troll.

DaTruth3452d ago (Edited 3452d ago )

He lied outright when he said that dedicated servers have more lag than P2P; so obviously he is trolling!

If he likes Live better than PSN, that is his opinion and he is entitled to it. But when he says that laggy P2P has less lag than dedicated servers, he is a lying troll... or only plays Black Ops on PSN!

jack_burt0n3452d ago

If you have a gaming pc why would you buy an xbox, for halo!? what else is there worth buying????

Playing my olds games to get trophies, but still want to play online (in my case I'm playing the 360 online since I got one with live) on my ps3 because it's the one I enjoy.

Star513452d ago

playing killzone 3...the continued outrage is, at best non-existent in my house. can't wait to get l.a. noire tuseday....speaking of...where are the reviews???

Hellsvacancy3452d ago

I got back from Amsterdam yesterday (went for 6 AWESOME days) thinkin/hopin the PSN would be up, i didnt use the internet or watch tele/movies at all when i was away *itll b on when i get back, no doubt about it* i thought

Well, its not often im ever wrong "pull your f-in finger out Sony, your pissin me off"

B1663r3452d ago

PS3 and PSN outage just proves that offline gaming is the way to go, and Sony is just being cutting edge by migrating away from online gaming first.

Seijoru3452d ago

Why are you commenting, this is for PSN users.

Scary693452d ago (Edited 3452d ago )

With this outage I am surprise I have had a lot time to do other things, and play games I had stopped playing. I am growing impatient though since I miss talking to friends. But we found each other on FB but no the same. LOL

Silly gameAr3453d ago (Edited 3453d ago )

Starting to get a little impatient now because I want to get back to my main console and games, but I have plenty to keep me occupied. I guess it will be back up when it's ready. Me being impatient won't get PSN up any faster.

smoothdude3453d ago

I just got the dolphin emulator so that I can play wii games in HD. I am still trying to get it to work correctly though.

I can't wait till PSN comes back online, but I am starting to get over the fact that it is not currently up.

Spitfire_Riggz3452d ago

Lol Im playing smash bros with my PS3 controller on Dolphin and project 64

MasterCornholio3452d ago

Tsk tsk tsk and thats what started this whole mess. Pirates......

MoveTheGlow3452d ago (Edited 3452d ago )

Emulators - meant for a PC (therefore with no "custom firmware" needed) - started this, Cornholio? I think you need some more crappuccino.

TheKindRoost3453d ago (Edited 3453d ago )

My ps3 died long before this whole thing. Unlike most of you you, I can't play offline game at all yet I'm managing pretty well without it. If people are having hard time getting through something as simple as this then you really are pathetic.

InLaLaLand3452d ago

I agree, people still have a functional console which is better than having a console which doesn't read discs (which mine does).

Max_Dissatisfaction3453d ago

Must suck for PSP Go owners looking to buy new games

kyl2773452d ago

There are PSP Go owners?

MGRogue20173452d ago (Edited 3452d ago )

hehe, I download all of mah' "PSP games" through another way, not through the PSN store >:)

Big-Boss3452d ago

if i find you. u will be F***** im former fbi just saying

Speakindatruth3452d ago (Edited 3452d ago )

Pirate. You are the scum of the earth. You aren't anything more than a fucked up thief who justifies everything without thinking logically.
I hope you burn in hell, if there is one. If not, I hope you die a slow, painful death into non-existence.

leogets3453d ago

itll be up when its up.thats how i feel.yes i miss battlefield and killzone3 but hey.some things are more important.aint that right sony!

Spitfire_Riggz3452d ago

Its more about Sony not updating us and lying about when its going up
