    I turned on the my PS3 this morning as was greeted with an error message that there was a network error and have been logged off. I just got arond to checking PSN's status and say this.

    I'm sure glad I don't have to pay to use PSN.

    I'm an xbox fanboy here but it seems like the PSN goes down a lot. Especially compared to xbox live. I haven't had an xbox live outage (other than scheduled maintenance at 3 am) in a very long time.

    That sucks, man. My friend was pretty upset about it when we got to work this morning. He went to the midnight release of the new MK and tried to get a few matches in before work and was greeted with the same error. I haven't played a game online since my son got ahold of the copy of Black Ops, bit onto it, drug his teeth across the disc and threw it in the bath tub....yaaaaay children....

    The PlayStation network & Qriocity are still down and will be down until they patch the network.

    That suuuuucks. My Gamer Heart goes out to all you guys. I haven't made the plunge to purchase a PS3 yet, so I'm okay with my 360. When I do, no more Xbox live......ever.

    The latest update.
    It may be, as someone has speculated, whoever it was that hacked PSN deleted some critical code.

    BTW, don't be surprised when (not if) XBox/Windows live gets crashed.

    more than likely PSN is going to be the only one that is attacked. Why? Because Microsoft hasn't pissed off the hacker community like Sony has with the GeoHotz stuff...

    It will happen some day... Just the law of averages.
    But the fact that it hasn't happened yet todate... and that Microsoft (and it's products) have the biggest target on their back... tells yah a lot about how that service was designed and built.

    Live has unintentionally gone down for spans of 12 or 24 hours. Never more than a day.

    It honestly wouldn't bother me if Live went down. I purchased my yearly subscription to Live 4 months ago and I only play on live when Gamefly sends me a game that has an interesting online mode, Like Medal of Honor that I just sent back. I beat the campaign and played online for a few days just for some easy achievements then sent it back. Pretty much the extent of my playing any games online. Other than that, I browse for demos for my gamefly queue and my qife customizes and downloads things for her Avatar.

    That's why I use PSN gift cards only when buying DLC.

    I checked and no e-mail from Sony.
