Luckily I have only got my old bank account linked to my PSN so i’m not to concerned about that, and Sony have said they are giving free DLC to all applicable PSN users (i.e those activated before the shutdown) so it’s not all bad
Doesn’t worry me. I’ve never paid anything, so I’m not going to complain! I’ve actually enjoyed it, because it has meant I can’t get distracted by online play and I’m finally getting some games finished! :P
GAME in the UK reported the same amount of PS3′s traded in (either for cash or an Xbox 360) in the first week of May as they saw in the whole of March. It#’s properly causing people to ditch their PS3′s.
Luckily I use mine for PC-console video streaming and playing my DVDs/Blu-Rays, the only games I have are Little Big Planet, which gets boring after an hour, and WipeOut HD with is far inferior to the awesome F-Zero GX on the GameCube. My 360 is what gets the gaming.
Doesn’t bother me at all – Been playing the Tomb Raider Collection a lot recently which doesn’t need online. Most games are perfectly playable without needing to be online and I’m not in a hurry for it to be fixed, though of course it’ll be nice when it is.
Can’t believe people trading them in – bit of an overreaction IMO. I’ve looked at getting a 360 because I want the Kinect (and also for some of the exclusive games) but online play is a secondary factor when I consider gaming, and I’d never get rid of my PS3, because that would mean no GT5, which would be akin to being castrated.
