Oh PSN, Where for art thou PSN?

It’s been nearly a month since PSN was hacked and taken offline. SOE has stated, that PSN as well as their other MMORPGs, will remain down, until they are confident that this does not happen again, and of course people are complaining about it left and right.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t enjoy the outage anymore than you. I do however understand the need for, and realise that the world doesn’t revolve around me and my gaming needs. I would like to hop on to PSN and play a little Black-Ops, I would like to Download the next chapter of the episodic Back to the Future Game and I would like to play EQ2. However, I also would like my information secured, and I believe that takes priority.

Many people however don’t feel that way. Whiners and cry babies, who are fed up with the online outage are trading their PS3s in for an Xbox 360. Smart move? Not really, I mean the system hasn’t even been down a full month, and while it is frustrating, if it’s a system you enjoy, then just wait it out.

This may come as a shock to some gamers, but there are games that can be played offline. Even the games you play online, probably has a single player campaign mode. So play it to hold you over, get better at the game. If all else fails, pick up a book and have a read. That’s what people used to do once upon a time.
