Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

I was meaning DVD is so three years ago, not Microsoft's new security.

 

Joke spoiler. :smileytongue:

In my line of work I know a bit about ID and card theft and the figures involved. I've only ever seen one example of debit card details stolen from a PS3 and this was because it had been sold without formatting it, on the other hand I've seen plenty of people with their Xbox live accounts hacked and debit cards been used because of this. And still despite the recent PSN attack we are not seeing any fraud cases linked to this

I could do without PSN for a few weeks and i'm a slow gamer with tonnes of offline games to play. However, i do understand the sentiment of the OP. Sony really is digging themselves a grave! They are giving people the impression that they don't have a clue and don't know what they're doing. If we all have to wait till 31st of May to get back online i expect a few more bows from the Sony CEOs....seriously, like some official headlines or apologies etc. otherwise people will bulk migrate to Microsoft. So far Sony hasn't clarified this. Their updates are still subpar. Their latest update on the ps3 blog says  nothing and follows 3-4 days of silence. No date no nothing, while rumous of the 31st of May being the date are in circulation like wild fire. Also in circulation are rumours of PSN having been hacked 3 times already, and this is what's causing the delays. Somehow PSN has become a prime target for low-life hackers, which means that it will be hacked again in the future. As much as i curse the hackers, their nothing consumers can do about it. If this is the case, Sony needs to say something! How are people not going to turn to PS3's competitors the xbox 360?

To be fair if that is how the OP felt then thats his right..

 

I am not on about people just getting rid of there PS3 for an Xbox but for those people who are getting rid of there Consoles in general too..

 

At the end of the day in some ways I cant say I blame them.. Dont get me wrong I wont be selling mine but lets face it alot of people including myself only bought the PS3 for Online Gaming and it isnt doing that..

 

Saying "that it plays oflline too" is just like saying " well me car as broke down down but cause the wheels still turn I will push it"

 

At the end of the day the Console is not doing the purpose that it was bought for by alot of people so slating them for getting rid of it to me is "like kids having a paddy"

No, you are wrong. The PS3 isn't broken. It's just temporary down and will be back in a few weeks. Comparing it to a broken down car is a bad comparison. People are just being so impatient.

It's all very well having a pop at Sony, and yes their security should have been better.

But who started all this..........

 

The hackers !!!

 

Be patient peeps.

This is why I own both systems, the chances of both being offline at the same time is very slim.

hahahahhaaaa - I haczored d interweb, now wut u gunna do? :D

 

 

 

 

 

 

(I didn't obviously - so good point, well made :Thumbs:)

 

 

 

 

 

Back on topic though, if the OP is so hacked (no pun intended) off that they are willing to lose a shed load of money trading in, rather than waiting until PSN comes back up, that that is their choice, and they have every right to make it.

 

Not the choice I'm making, but there you go :)

To me a better analogy is that the PS3 is like a bar that only serves beer and whiskey. Some people like beer. Some people like whiskey. And some people like beer and whiskey. But the bar has run out of whiskey. So all those who like beer are still having a good time, while the whiskey only drinkers are out on the street looking for another bar.

 

I guess the questions are: what proportion of people fall into the whiskey only category, and how much of an alcoholic are they?

Let Sony take as long as they need to get things up and running again, we're not paying for it after all.

At the end of the day in my eyes the OP got rid of his PS3 for whatever reason and for the OP it was the right decision at the time. If he is regretting it now so what.

 

This is the only thing that gets at me to be honest that nearly everyone as jumped on the OP for getting rid of it,, it was his decision .

 

I think most people have taken it personal that they have sold it:Lol: ,, I think the only reason the OP started the post was just to let people know and Sony how fed up they were for lets be honest all the messing about.

 

If on the other hand the OP sold it because of *****ng Idiots on here then ^^ the above quote as just proved that it was definately the right thing to do.
