Can I play online? Check

Can I talk to my friends? Check

Well, most of the time.

As someone worked out earlier, it's $360 total up to now for XBL. So for XBL you basically paid $360 for a pretty GUI that you don't even need or use in game, and for a whopping one week total more uptime than PSN.

Not that I'm dissing. Each to his own, I'm totally cool with both systems. Just putting it into perspective.

I gotta laugh at this mess.

I mean really, console gamers basically fighting for a right/priviledge that PC gamers get.

Why not cut the bull, and just buy a PC?

Silly console Peasants. This is a good day for the PC industry.

How the hell am I suppose to watch Hulu Plus? Netflix still works you just have to try to sign in twice, but Hulu doesn't work at all.

It is to my surprise that you people are ignorant to the fact that Sony Computer Entertainment is the only one dealing with this, You all act as if SONY is one Giant compnay, well I will open your eyes. SONY has multiple divisions with their own incomes, if the company and it's divisions were not divided the United States and United Nations would recognize the company as a Monopoly, which is illegal, now to establish relevance to this thread, someone posted earlier "Expect stocks to Plummet" SONY's stocks will not be affected, even if the company and it's divisions were not divided, the income from PlayStation Network is Minimal, PlayStation Network's subscriptions, Such as Playstation Plus, will continue to be paid and the only other losses are Moral losses from Consumers.

Now, I believe that the reason that the PlayStation Network has not Come online again is that Sony Computer Entertainment is likely re-coding their servers and testing them before comming online again to prevent hackers from "Externally Intruding" the PlayStation Network again.

You can still use Netflix. You have have to "fake" log-in, i.e., press sign-in with all credentials and you will get to the next screen. Then Netflix will ask you once more to log in but you do the same and then you will be put to the Netflix title screen without issues.

We had a class discussion in english class today. The PS3 was defined as a "Wii for gaming" and the PS3 network was defined as "netflix for gaming". They all also came to the conclusion that one mad hacker did it. Which I am assuming they meant geo.

Except you forget about the massive class action suit they are gonna have on their hands. 70 million rightfully pissed off people= a crapload of money.
