Play on your PC, which is actually not a terrible idea if you can afford maintaining a good PC (I can't)



That's exactly what I'm doing, it was actually a fortunate coincidence that I bought a new PC around the time PSN went down. There are still a lot of great games to look forward to on the PS3 but I'd like to skip consoles after this gen, problem is, most of my favorite franchises aren't on PC.
After 3 generations where the playstation was my console of choice, the PS4 will have to be something really special and the competition really crappy for me to even consider jumping on sony's ship again.
I'll never regret buying the PS3 because for my personal tastes it is clearly the right console to own this gen, it's not even close, but right now I would really like to be able to play these games on another system owned by a company that is actually trustworthy. I hope the consequences of this epic fuck up continue to hit them hard for years to come.

This just seems like hackers playing a game at this point. Kind of like a fight in the schoolyard, your disappointed when it ends.

Well, it seems people are challenging the idea of "is it possible for the people to bring down a corporation".

They will have to butcher the game to bring it to consoles though. They're probably aiming at medium settings at 720p30fps and even that will be a challenge. I can already see the frame-rate analysis videos showing drops to 16 fps or worse.

Expect more downtime for maintenance next week. Thank God I have the witcher 2 to keep me busy. PSN better be flawless when the uncharted 3 beta starts, but with the record setting level of incompetence we've been seeing nothing can surprise me anymore.

So as much as we all may despise Sony for their horrible security measures.  And despite the fact that I doubt this little group of l33t hackerz can really "end" Sony, do they not realize that Sony employes how many hundreds of thousands of people across the globe, who are not responsible in the least for this?  And if they were to "end" Sony, they would be fucking up the lives of every one of these people?  And the whole PBS thing is a bit shocking...people are always worried about the Government censoring media..but now we have to worry about some whiny people with a particular grudge going and screwing with it?  That bodes ill in my opinion.  Now if this were some...government cover up they were trying to expose, maybe I could understand it.  But just because they dont agree with the view PBS took on the article, they are just gonna do what they please?  Thats not right in the slightest.  I apologize if I am going to off topic, this just really bugs me.  As dumb as I feel the original hack was, it did help show how weak Sony was with their security, and hopefully convinced other businesses in other industries to say "Holy shit maybe we should double check to make sure we dont suffer the same fate."  But now its getting out of hand, and completely irresponsible.  (And to be clear I still think the hackers from the Sony thing are douchebags, since they stole the info and then tried to sell it and abuse it, but I think it was good in the fact that it showed how vulnerable and poorly done the security was)

PSN Hong Kong still isn't back up yet, and since I have to route through there I still can't access anything.
