Why exactly wouldn't they be up? People who were getting rid of their PS3s had it sold for a lot less than what they bought it for, and besides, there's nothing much wrong with the actual console, just the online so I guess a lot of people in the market for one didn't care much for the online (to be fair, neither did I when I owned my 40GB PS3, only bought it for single player mostly, all multiplayer stuff I do on my PC).

True statement.

The general public usually responds to such widespread, negative PR. I'm frankly surprised that sales didn't take a noticeable dip. I think you'd agree with me that this would be a different story if it was Xbox Live that went down.

I got my free games ( all o them because my girl has an account on my PS3) and then for reasons I have yet to discover I bought Dungeon Hunter for $10 via the plus discount. Pretty decent game for 10 dollars.
PS3 is a great console still, that's why it still selling. The competition has fallen behind and now the PS3 is getting the recognition it has always deserved for being a more powerful entertainment system.

Obviously. People pay subscription fees for XBL, however bad PSN is, at least it's free. Had XBL been hacked, I still doubt they would have lost that many console sales, but they would have lost a hell of a lot of XBL Gold subscribers.

As said before though, PS3 has enough offline uses to justify its price tag for most people, so I'm not surprised that this didn't affect sales in a negative way.

Any publicity is good publicity? My PS3 was just a decoration until the recent news brought it to my attention again.

Actually PS3 games are around 60-65 euros (in most places), same for X360. If you are wondering, yes PS3/X360 honest players are getting kind of raped.

I still don't get why people think of psn as bad. For the core online gameplay, i can still connect with whomever i'd like and play without lag happily.
