    Angry Anybody else hurting from this massive Playstation Network outage?

    I like playing online games late at night .. it's just one of those things I do.

    But -- the Playstation Network has been unstable for over a week now, and has been down completely since Wednesday night, allegedly due to hackers. This is one of the longest and hard hitting outages to ever hit the Internet, with an estimated 70,000,000 users affected.

    It's time they did away with this centralized 'network' model .. and do it like how we used to do it on the PC; let people run their own servers. Back in the day I ran Elite Force, Counterstrike, Quake, Wolfenstein, Battlefield, etc servers .. always worked wonderfully. Even if the directory server was down, people still had my IP address bookmarked and could fill a server with ease... 64 players for the win!

    It's only a matter of time until Xbox Live get's dealt the same fate .. once MS upset the wrong people.

    PSN doesn't have dedicated servers or support you pay for like Xbox live from what I understand. Therefore, it will never be as quality of a network.

    I'm over console gaming anyway, back to PC.

    Lol I have both a ps3 and xbox 360 and the psn honestly sucks compared to live. It's not even close, basically I only use the ps3 for blu ray or games that r ps3 exclusive. If it's on both it's 360 ftw.

    I've never had an issue with it since the PS3 first came out ... until this.

    I'm thinking it's time to go back to PC gaming!

    I don't mean that the servers are down or anything like that I just like the fact that there's always a ton of players on xbox and the servers are definitely faster so less lag.

    Sony officially sucks. The Playstation was the only great thing that the company had left going for them .. but now they've screwed that up. And it's their own fault for banning 'other os'. Alienate enough people and you'll get hurt eventually.

    And it's not so much the outage, but the fact they don't keep us properly informed .. one small post per day on a blog is a bad show.

    Like I said, time to do away with the 'network', and make game servers decentralized like they should be. No way should millions of users be at the mercy of one company .. one persons decision.

    If it were not for blu ray, my PS3 would be burning in my back yard right now. Click here to enlarge

    Hmm:

    We sincerely regret that PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have been suspended, and we are working around the clock to bring them both back online. Our efforts to resolve this matter involve re-building our system to further strengthen our network infrastructure. Though this task is time-consuming, we decided it was worth the time necessary to provide the system with additional security.

    We thank you for your patience to date and ask for a little more while we move towards completion of this project. We will continue to give you updates as they become available.
