So what have you been doing since the network went down?

Postby Wombat 909 » Mon Apr 25, 2011 4:43 am

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few days, a BIG rock then you'll have heard that the PS3 Network went down due to hackers (or 'External intrusion')

So have you been still playing the PS3? Or just not gone on it. I've been playing the single player of Enslaved, working on getting some trophies and completing the game on Hard. Other than that I've just been studying for exams.

I was playing Soul Caliber 4 and then I got the new Mortal Kombat in the mail, and now I'm working on my mk trophies. They do need to hurry up and fix it though. I need to download my classic Mortal Kombat skins, and I can't do that if I can't log in. [smilie=spidey_lol.gif]

Nothing's changed for me -- I don't play much multiplayer.

As far as playing games online, I don't mind it being down briefly. I only play online sporadically anyway.
However, what DOES piss me off about it is that I can't access my Netflix account, since I can't sign in. I'm still getting charged for it, even though I can't use it at all. That sucks. :evil:

Well, it looks like there's been a massive security breach. If you have your account linked to a credit card, you're probably fucked. Sony is already doing damage control as to why they didn't tell people this sooner. It's getting very, very ugly.

Well, this is just WONDERFUL. After a crappy day at work, a weekend that featured a bike accident (from which I suffered a broken tooth, along with multiple scrapes & bruises), and now this.
This week just keeps getting better and better... :evil:

I'm rather surprise that this hasn't happend earlier. Kinda shocked that Microsoft hasn't been hit by something similar.

I have an Xbox 360, and Xbox Live is working just fine :P I know people have problems with the subscription fee, but in this case I guess, you get what you pay for :wink:

*shakes fist*

A few of my friends are annoyed the network is down, now they can't play SOCOM or Portal 2 online. I play online often but not so much that I can't survive without it. I can easily put in a single player game and be just as entertained. However it does feel strange not to get signed onto the network whenever I log on and I'd feel much more comfortable with it back online.

I'm assuming that you weren't a member in December of '08 when Xbox Live was down FOR A MONTH. :lol:

Nothing, cause I never connect my consoles to the network
Been playing Resident Evil 5 to defeat Wesker, then it went on to defeat the whole story in less than 5 hours to gain the infinite launcher
From Scimitar to Merciless, and I'm barely violent :p
