Comedian and gamer Kent Valentine explains why we all need to cut Sony a little slack - after all, none of us are perfect.
I feel sorry for me not being able to play online and sync my trophies. Going a little stir crazy here.
For about the first 2 weeks I was alright as I bought a few game on Steam during their sales for PC so I at least had them to play. But know that I'm done with them I'm looking forward to owning some noobs in CoD:BO or BF:BC2 and then playing online coop of Portal 2 with a mate. Only problem is I can't (I could play Portal 2 on PC except my mates PC sucks). Oh well, I would rather they thoroughly test their system changes to make sure they are secure then have them rush PSN back only for it to get re-hacked, that would be much worse.
I ordered 3D Dot Game Heroes last week and it's STILL not here. On top of that, I switched HDD's to get some saves off my old HDD, and now I can't play my FFIX because I have to authenticate the game! And I can't do that until I log in. Anyone know why?? I can't seem to play any game I downloaded off PSN. It worked before I switched HDD's to get some old data... I'm so mad. Guess I'll work on Valkyria Chronicles, but I wanted to continue FFIX
when you switch HDs on a PS3 you need to install the license data on the new hardrive by sync it with the PSN ( the license is made by the PSN and the COnsole data ) and can't be copied ... nobody who switches Hdds ATM can play games that need PSN licenses to play ..because no need licenses are made. For PSN+ users ite's even worse
SOONy would be a slightly more appropriate name for your company..
Now that was funny! Soon-y Delaystation? I'm still enjoying my PS3 offline in addition to PC gaming. Next week I'm going to forget about PSN even more...PS3 version of LA Noire and The Witcher 2 on PC this tuesday.
get the online portion up then i'll feel sorry for these guys... til then, its all hate
giving a shit about what these sites post. I just want PSN back.
To me, it's just more shrimp on the barbies.
I don't find this funny. At this point, my patience is wearing thin.
Was there stories like this when the RROD went on for 3 years? When it got over a 50% fail rate? We all know stuff happens. So we've been out of online gaming now for 3 weeks. In that time, I've gotten over 120 trophies, one being a plat. So at least I'm still gaming every single day. I also think as the days have gone on. You look at the hackers more then Sony. It was the hackers that did all of this to us. It was their main goal to hurt Sony. Which directly hurt us all. But this video is a nice refresher to what it's like to be able to smile again about all that's happened. I also think that when the PSN is back up. Every single gamer in here will appreciate that service a 100% more this time around.
Say your next door neighbor went to work every day and left his front door unlocked on the way out. Then one day someone decides to walk right in and take all his stuff and some things he borrowed from someone else. Sure...the thieves are the bad guys, but in all honesty can you tell me that you wouldn't partially blame the neighbor or at least think that he is a freakin idiot for leaving his door unlocked? Especially if your items were some of the things missing? I have seen numerous people ridicule all the RROD apologists, but this issue seems to have just as many. I am just waiting for all the zealot articles and arguments as to which event was worse. This site is saturated in psychosis.
The door was locked...a locksmith just used his tools to open in. If there was no security at all this would of prolly happened a lot sooner.
So someone looking to do wrong is not at fault here. Rather then someone doing something wrong. Yet still selling you something they know is wrong/ defective. Sony was hacked and as we all see. Old information was obtained ( 2001 and 2007 ). They took down everything to protect the system and to figure out what all has happened. Yet the world panic and media hype started all the stories about how everyone was in danger. When clearly that is not the case at all. Also, hacking goes on everyday in this world. So I guess everyone must have the window's open and the doors unlocked right?
Almost a month to fix a network.....JOKE! Biggest Joke of a company to ever operate on the face of the earth. SONY doesn't even up date us anymore....Every update is the same thing "Please be patient, it will be up in a few days"
When Sony unveiled the PS3 at E3 2005, Tretton said Sony would "spoon feed" online gaming in response to Microsoft's bold Xbox Live network. Sony relied on brand recognition and hoped their fans would remain ignorant of Xbox Live. Sony didn't take their network seriously. Now they're paying for their complacency.
Yawn you guys.....
I feel sorry that Sony got attacked by stupid hackers... and that users got mad at Sony instead =P The net isn't secure at all, you think you have a bastion that noone can break and in 2 secs a guy can break it and steal everything inside. It happens to banks, it happens to houses, it happens to Sony too. As if they like the situation... For many users here it's like "I'm Sony, i got your money, now go to hell! Ha ha ha haaaa! PSN?? What's PSN?? Oh, the LAN we have in our offices... Hurray!!!" If it happened to another company would be the same btw: trolls, fanboys, and stupid articles every 2 seconds. I work with net too. And i think that would be stupid to restart the service when you think there COULD be another hole somewhere and the same could happen. But probably ppl don't understand. I don't know why i'm saying all of this neither, since probably in 1 minute i'll get to 1 bubble and 9999 disagrees ;)
I'm with you on this. We'll both go down as proud warriors.
WE SHOULD BE SORRY FOR SONY? your kidding me right? PSN is down, MILLIONS OF credit card information stolen, peoples identities stolen, and were suppose to feel sorry? The only person I feel sorry for is the person that wrote this article and had balls bigger then the mountains to post it! I seriously hope sony falls, crashes, burns then dies...yours truly....one very PISSED off customer. ( facepalm )
I can't get this bloody 3.61 to download it keeps crashing after a few % :( going to bed now........
