Sony rebounding.

It looks like Sony began bringing its network back up which is nice.  I'm curious to hear how all this downtime has affected them and what kind of losses they are looking at.  Either way it's great to see all current and former Planetside players getting 45 days of free play time as a part of Sony's Welcome Back Program.  I'm expecting to see a lot of old familiar faces logging in soon.  It looks like Sony did something right by hooking up their subscribers of past and current games.  I'm not sure how things look on the PS3 end, but on PC I'd say they've done alright.

  12. well at least they do something to 'repay' the users and more than 1 month would just destroy their economical strength as they already lost a lot of stock value as ramrod already said.

  14. 45 days? Very obliging. Btw you do listen to ICP don't you? ;)

  15. Actually no, I'm not an ICP fan. :)

    Psychedelic Clown Posse (PcP) is a clan I belong to. However we do borrow a lot of their mentality and even call non clan members that hang with us groupies. It's a tight nit group much like ICP's followers.

  17. It just goes to show how vulnerable these networks are. Sony only has themselves to blame.

  19. That whole event made me glad that I haven't bought a PS3 yet. I plan on it (eventually << ), but hopefully they've tightened security up by the time I do.

  31. Good to see companies making some sort of reparations to their customers, Valve has done this a time or two as well when something doesn't go as planned.

  35. Nice blog man, hope to stay posted, totally gonig to follow.

    Also I didn't mind the "extended" amount of time this took for the PSN to go back up, as long as they bring up the network to strength to stop this happening again is better than just opening the network again.
