I actually take my brothers 360 when he is not around. They had a sell going where new users can get Live for one dollar and 3 months for 12 bucks. MS are geniuses for that, especially since you can't cancel online and have to call or else it auto renews.

I must say after using Live this long you really start to notice what PSN is lacking. I won't keep paying for Live as I dont have the money and I can't pay to play games, its against my nature.

And if Sony comes back and all they added was seriously security we will never personally see and crap games for "waiting" this long, you can say goodbye to a lot of customers. 3 weeks....3 friggin weeks and all you did was strengthen security? Why not just buy a system from MS or other leading networks as a temp...your losing billions of dollars anyways.

Well there's a glimmer of hope for that being true, apparently the developers PSN has gone live for at least some of it's users so it could be they are using the developers as testers before flipping the switch for the onslaught of gamers that will log-on when the Network does go fully live (I would actually laugh if gamers took down the Network by pure and simple DDoS, after all everyone will log in about the same time).

I dont think any of us are in a position to really be able to postulate
on what they can or cant do in terms of a staggered return of the PSN.

Fact is that every day the network is down, the Playstation brand is devalued in addition
to the more wide reaching Sony brand. Meaning a drop in customer faith in their brand as well as
in their stock prices which they undoubtedly would stop immediately if they could.
But once again the damage done would pale in comparison to reinstating the network and having
would be hackers find another way to weasel their way in.

In a situation like this I think prioritizing a secure relaunch takes precedence over a
speedy one. Their communication however with their customers has been awful, every
update really boils down to them saying 'we're working around the clock to restore it'
and while that isnt terribly helpful, not having spoken to us in 3 days is suuuper

I have a feeling they'll pull a apple like press release though saying that the network is
'available right now' though on the next update.

Probably because they always update on Fridays and we got nothing from them today. So it will probably go live this weekend.

They talked about giving games away, never bother to tell us which ones. They talked about identity protection, never emailed on how to get it or when. They talked about PS Plus and free services, and didn't talk about what the content will be etc...All this could of been communications with us, but no we are left in the dark. and this is what makes me mad the most.

they're doing rolling restarts by region now, hopefully they get it up in Canada and the US soon

I think some of the answers you're looking for are there

AZ went up rather early, didn't know we were that much of a priority lol

and yet MW2 is still full of cheaters. Had a clan full of aimbots and 20 year old punks right off the bat. So lovely that this is what online has come to.
