Earlier today Sony posted another update that they hoped would calm irate gamers who are angry because the Playstation network is still down. Many gamers were simply asking for a reason for the delay in re-launching the PSN network.
To be fair the blog post did explain that ‘external intrusion’ meant Sony had to shutdown the Network to investigate and protect the integrity of the network and its users. This has gone some way to quell angry reactions although many feel it an inadequate update and are demanding more details.
One of the cleaner comments asked: “Wow horrible PR for real. All you got to say? ETA, anything else? If i was getting [sic] paid $100,000 + a year, I would update the community with more then a sentence or two every few days.” Which seems to be the general consensus between a lot of gamers.
Another common theme involves general anger towards the ‘external intrusion’ which is widely believed to be either hackers, a DDOS attack or gamers finding a way to access games for free causing Sony to shutdown the PSN to plug up the holes. What ever the reason PS3 gamers are very annoyed that a slim few have caused trouble for the majority.
Not all gamers feel the same though; others suggested quicker ways for Sony to spread news, Ramage posted: “I’d say you could get the word out quite a bit faster using twitter. Thanks for the update”. To be fair they are using Twitter to post links to their updates so we guess ‘Ramage’ meant the content and frequency they are using social media to get the word out.
Some also managed to keep a sense of humour, Yazter posted on the official PS Blog: “So was it anonymous or Skynet?” Where as others wished Sony luck and gave them words of encouragement.
So a wide variety of reactions, a great deal of which we have accepted and enjoyed on our own comments section. Feel free to explain your thoughts below, be them positive; negative or just humorous (just keep it clean as you can :-)).
