Chris Kemp calls everyone on the internet stupid...
he has a point heres why 1.First People where complaing that PSN was down and that no one can play online.Now that its back there complaing about the welcome back package. 2.Sony did the best they can PSN is back isnt it and if its not then it should be back where ever you are soon. 3. these one isnt a point but it seems People find whatever they can to complain about.
So true. It seems like every other day its something new to complain about Sony. E3 is right around the corner and believe me, people will find something to complain about their conference.
But the problem here is who are really complaining about this whole scenario? I personally know hundreds of PS3 consumers and a fair amount of them are PS+ subscribers. The only thing I got from any of them during this outage was anger towards the hackers and hoping Sony could get PSN back up as fast but secure as possible. Not one of the people I know freaked and went ballistic, called their banks and cancelled their cards, blamed Sony for any of this in any way, nor do they care about the free offerings. If anything they are all just happy it's back up and running and they can resume their online gaming. I still have yet to take advantage of Sonys welcome back gifts and I'm not sure I will. I have plenty of games to play already and I don't feel they owe me jack squat but appreciate them offering those games. We know who are really the driving force behind the whining and stealth trolling. Let's keep it real and be brutally honest here. It's sites looking for hits and opposition fan base pretending they are PS3 fans. No I'm not a blind idiot. I'm sure some of these complaints were coming from PS3 consumers but my honest opinion is most of them weren't.
most likey the 360 trolls saying crap even if they don't own a PS3
I think it's a better deal then the 360 got when their network went down. Heh
Point number 3.... is just human beings (not just internet people). This guy needs to take a step outside his mom's basement and find out that people outside are exactly the same, just complaining about different subjects like... the weather, football, money, work, life... etc etc etc....
And if he wrote on a website related to "football, money, work, life... etc etc etc" he'd probably call those tools out as well.
i haven't seen anyone complain anywhere besides on N4G. So um, go eat a big one Mr. Kemp.
Chris Kemp calls everyone on the internet stupid and does so, ironically, by utilizing the internet. This article is just a rehash of the whole "be grateful for what you are getting".
For the complainers: If you have all games just DL the most expensive ones and then sell the reatail versions for $!
But who's going to buy it if you can get it for free? Not that I'm a complainer, but that is no solution to the problem. EDIT: @DrStabwounds No, I agree, the package is more than enough to compensate for the outage but if people already have all 5 of those games they're screwed (some of them are just download only titles). Luckily, there are 2 games there that I haven't played so I'm quite happy with the package. Plus I'll get my ps plus month back as well as a free month of plus. None of that will stop the haters from hating, though, i assure you.
They'll still give you a few bucks at retail. And the games are FREE! You can't complain about free! It's not like that's all either, 1(2 if u have it already) month of ps+, 1 month quirosity, movie rentals and 100 home items. Also, your FREE network is back. All these people feel so entitled for no reason whatsoever. They just come off spoiled and childish.
Let the retailers worry about who's gonna buy it, if you can get cash then get the cash! Although,on the other hand, if I was a retailer I would put a ban on my store accepting any of the games on offer. Hmmm.
whiners complaining about whiners creates a paradox of complaints about whiners
Like whiners who complain about wine.
Actually not many people are complaining about Sony. Only here on n4ps3 do you see that because its full of no life ps3 fanboys. In the real world where I come from people are cool with it and are letting Sony take their time and resolve the issue instead of whine about it. [email protected] mcgroin: Agree. I got 2 free games for my psp im happy. Although I feel for the people who already have what is being offered... but their is realy no way to avoid that.
Here here (the appropriately named) awiseman! I for one wasn't expecting compensation at all and out of the five on offer I only have Dead Nation so I'm pretty happy, AND I get an extra two months of PS Plus! All of this and Sony didn't even do anything wrong, THEY were the ones who were attacked! So to all the whiners, shut your pieholes!
While I agree most people aren't talking about the issue in the real world, this article is about the people on the Internet: "Chris Kemp calls everyone on the internet stupid" And, this is a very hot topic on the Internet right now with a lot of people complaining about the fact it happened, why it happened, how it was handled, and what they get out of it.
@Old McGroin Actually, awiseman contributes a lot of the whining articles we see on N4G. If not for people like him, we probably wouldn't have half of the FUD we see now. So yes "awiseman". Thank you for your efforts.
"I already have all those games!" "You have them because they're good games. If Sony had offered crap games, you'd complain then too. Sony chose these games because they're popular in order to please their customers." Nail, head etc. etc.
