No, they really don't. Other networks get hacked and they are back online within hours or at most a day. Sony's network, PSN, and SOE are going to be down for 6 weeks, that is only Sony's fault.

This outage would have to happen THE DAY I buy Portal 2 for PS3 just to get the free, included PC version, then sell the PS3 version.

I've barely even started playing it because I want to play it on PC but I can't w/o being able to go onto PSN ...

So lame

lol at all the people all angry and pissed at sony, pretending they are gonna sell their PS3's, never use PSN again etc etc bla bla bla.

you're all kidding yourselves.

this seems good, 2 free games and there was talk of the 30-day free trial of Playstation Plus, although i dunno how that will work for already subscribers like me, hopefully they just extend my subscription time.

i doubt the games would be like latest release, but still. even if you just sold them, theres some cash you didnt have before.

its not like the world ended or lives were heavily distruped. the PSN was down, boo hoo. the bad thing is what caused the downfall, and thats where hate should be directed.

The thing you and others seem not to understand is that some people are not mad about the PSN being down. I couldnt care less, I havent played a game on there in well over 18 months. The thing that bothers me is the breach of personal information. It was reported that this is the second largest digital breach in history. If you don't think that's significant, or something to be upset over, you ought to have your head examined.

i completely agree that that is the underlying issue here, i actually said that myself in the post of mine you quoted. thats what i was implying about the downfall

my point being, everyones hating on Sony for that. for what? they are doing what they can, yeah they messed up, but its not like they advertised the flaw prior, nor have they ever claimed fail-safe security.

it was all just some geek with no life and nothing better to do than ruin others lives to try compensate for a lack of their own or find a cheap way to make a living coz real work is soooo hard, thats who's responsible here. he/she's the one with our private info.

its like if you buy a car, say a Ford, and some bloke steals it, you hate Ford, blame them and will never buy a Ford again? thats what the people hating on sony and pretending they are gonna boycott sony are basically saying.

More like if Ford stored your personal info in the car, made it easily unlockable from the outside without key and did this without telling you.
