i don't mind waiting. i have some games that i haven't finished, and i've been having some good times on xbox live. although when PSN is back up, i'll have to take a stab at some more Uncharted 2 MP
didn't they say they were physically moving to a new datacenter? I would've been stunned if they had been able to acquire all the necessary servers, start them all up, migrate all the data and also have their new server software in place, in a week.
So sorry to PS3 owners... :(
The downtime sucks, but Live was down for about a month too a time ago. Why do you think I love Steam as much as I do now? :)
" @Punk1984: Yeah, you're right, by the time I was growing up arcade's were a myth that older kids talked about, and the only proof we had of their glory days were people on our street with Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter II cabinets in their garage... which now that I think about it is pretty amazing, but back then it was just, "oh, you have an arcade cabinet, that must have run your parents like, what, 20 dollars at a garage sale?" "What....garage....sale?!?!?! :D
...so any takers on what Zipper's next game is gonna be?
Get me some sales.
" I understand they needed time. But by now it's getting ridiculous. "The fact that they had no patches or firewalls makes it impossible for me to be okay with them taking so much time to fix their mistake. They should have kept it up to date in order to stop this from happening in the first place.
This sure is taking its time. If I don't get to play Demon's Souls by the time they close their servers I will go Postal.
" @FoxMulder:OH THANK GOD SOMEONE WITH SENSE.
Have fun never playing Gears of War, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Left4Dead, Crackdown, Dead Rising, Fable, etc...
The whole, "I'm gonna stick with the PS3 because of its exclusives" argument is ridiculous. As a previous owner of both systems (I had a PS3 up until just BEFORE the network crash), I will totally admit to the greatness of Uncharted 2, LBP, Heavy Rain, etc... but to use that as a reason NOT to buy a 360 is mind-boggling. Either you don't have enough cash to own both (which is a good excuse) or you're just plain being a fanboy. The PS3 exclusives DO NOT trump the 360 exclusives listed above. Likewise, the 360 exclusives DO NOT trump the PS3 exclusives. They're different. Period. Have fun never seeing the other side while those around you do. "
