PSN shut down 5 days ago due to an "external source"

I'll give you a hint it was skynet!

There was some hacker group that threatened them that they think might be responsible. Kinda sucks but I'm playing single player games just now anyway.

They've fixed it kinda. There's still some features down like the store and stuff but we can play online and get access to friend lists and stuff.

That reminds me I still need to get everyone added...I never did get round to that.

Yeah, they handled it pretty horribly. No way they're coming out of this without some scars.

Didn't they say we can get some free downloads? Wonder if that includes original ps games.. i've been wanting to get metalgear solid but too cheap to buy it. Plus i want to be able to play it on psp Smile so i need more memory.

They announced the details for the UK one, I'm not sure about the US one though. It'll be available when the store goes back online.

Ah, ok. I wonder if Sony caught 'Anonymous' yet. I'm sure once they're in handcuffs, gamers around the globe will be death metal

Anonymous have completely denied being involved in it. It's actually quite unlikely it was them as the intent of the hack was to steal credit card details and such, whereas Anonymous only ever attack the companies, never the customers. Still, that could be a cover up. No-one knows even who they are.

Thought it would be Anonymous since they've been trying to get Sony's attention. Unless someone was trying to get credit card info i think Sony explains that changing your password & checking your credit cards, info is just a precaution in case they were trying to get it.

It could have been someone else. It could have been a disgruntled worker who told someone or did the hacking himself. Someone told me it was an inside job.

Yeah but that's still denying the customers access to the service, which isn't their style. If they did it, I don't see why the wouldn't just say it was them anyway. It's not like anyone knows who they are.

Ah well, it's slowly coming back up. Emphasis on slowly.

Well i decided to hook up my router (after having so many issues with Comcast) & i was able to go into my psn to change my password & do any updates, found this:

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/06/03/welcome-back/

Quote :
For PS3 owners, go to the ‘Welcome Back’ section in the PlayStation Store, and select 2 titles from the following list:

Dead Nation
inFAMOUS
LittleBigPlanet
Super Stardust HD
Wipeout HD + Fury

For PSP owners, go to the ‘Welcome Back’ section of PlayStation Store on your PSP system and select 2 titles from the following list:

LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
ModNation Racers
Pursuit Force
Killzone Liberation

Since i got a psp i can select 4 titles. (However i need to get a new memory stick, because the one i have is full)

And i keep getting this stupid (80431063) error on my psp, my ps3 was saying that there was updates going on for the server, i just now managed to get on the psp welcome screen anyways im not sure which games i should get :\ when i do manage to get them.

Oh i'm already going to pick out Dead Nation. This looks so awesome.



Edit: I decided on Pursuit Force & Killzone Liberation for the psp

For the Ps3, it's between inFAMOUS & Wipeout HD. inFAMOUS looks pretty decent although i prefer physical copies (i could always buy later) & i wouldn't bother with Wipeout HD since it's digital only & i probably wouldn't buy it. Hmm.. decisions..

Who cares about physical copies when it's free? Infamous is pretty good anyway. I bought it when it came out and I've played through it a couple of times.

I'll probably get Wipeout and Dead Nation. I already have LittleBigPlanet and I've played Super Stardust HD before, it doesn't seem like something I'd play for long.

Got Dead Nation and Pursuit Force (I had everything else already goddamnit).

My PS3 probably wont get used again until Uncharted 3 comes out. Hell even that may be inferior to the new Tomb Raider: the trailer looks awesome though Square publishing something with amazing graphics is hardly a huge surprise, and it was all cutscene which is hardly indicative of gameplay.

PC will own my life for the forseeable future.

Uncharted does look pretty epic. I loved the last two games.

Well i think Infamous might be a larger dl too? I only have like a 60 or a 80GB & it's almost 70% full so i might just buy it. I don't want to mess with upgrading my hdd yet or buying an external just so i can have more room. I do have a bunch of demos on it but i leave it on in case i happen to find a release that really sucks. I forgot i even had the demo for Infamous. It is pretty awesome. Still need to buy resident evil 5. Just waited for that to drop in price.

Yeah, good point. My PS3's fairly new since I got a replacement for my old one just last Christmas so I have tons of free space. Infamous is probably worth the full price anyway, especially now that it'll have dropped in price. Get LittleBigPlanet if you don't already have it though. While Infamous is good, LBP is godamn amazing. Any opportunity to get it for free should be taken. That is unless you're gonna get the second one, which I hear is pretty the same but improved.

A 2nd LBP? I don't know it seems too children for me. Shocked

The Rachet Clank i got with my psp looks better, but that's according to one youtube video i watched, maybe i just need to watch one of the tutorial vids. Perhaps ill look into it.. im in no rush to get whichever game & the game is available on the PSP as well, although both shooters for the psp look pretty good.

^ is this fucking for real? Did sony really get hacked AGAIN!? Or is this author trolling?

Servers were slow, but i didn't access my account until after this so i don't know if it's related to the constant disconnections.

A lot of great games are cartoonish/childish. Mario, Sonic, Crash Bandicoot etc. LBP is brilliant. You're missing out if you don't at least try it out. Takes a bold step and actually manages to make something awesome out of it.

And as far as I know, no, they've not been hacked again. I was on it last night fine, dunno if it's changed since then though.

^ true, well at least i can say for the classics.. i played Crash Bandicoot for awhile but stopped, don't remember where i got it from because i don't have the game anymore. I could get LBP on psp maybe. Ill have to decide on what other game to get though. =\ dunno if it's the same quality but if i get it i'd rather use the psp.

That link i believe is from the 2nd.. so it probably had to happen at the end of last month or maybe the 1st.

No get it on PS3. I'm not kidding when I say it's brilliant. You will be shocked at how good it is. Don't mistake it for a kid's game because of all the cute little sackboys, the level creator and experiencing other people's created levels is just something else.

I'll back up Dark on this. Little Big Planet is one of the best PS3 games I own, from just playing with stickers to manipulate a Michael Jackson picture while bombs are dropping all around me to shooting people with a paintball gun, I've gotten my money's worth. Same with Infamous (And its sequel)
