Awesome to have PSN back. Had time to catch up on single player games though.

P.S. Cross game chat? why would you want to talk to someone that’s not playing the game that you are playing? Get a phone!

I’m tired of hearing everyone at Sony ‘apologize for the inconvenience’ they’ve caused. This is not a sincere apology and is akin to Sony kicking you in the nuts and saying, “Sorry your balls hurt.” While it may not be entirely Sony’s fault that this attack happened, they were still negligent with our data from a security standpoint.

Unfortunately, everyone at Sony appears to be too egotistical to deliver a heartfelt apology to its customers.

It isn’t Sony’s fault. How? Did they tell the criminals to do this to them? No. Sure, there security wasn’t as great at the time. But they didn’t see this coming, and it could happen to ANYONE besides Sony.

Cyber-attacks have happened to a lot of different companies and no one has blamed them for the end-result and the same should be said for Sony. Whats done is a done and is now a thing of the past.

All I gotta say is go online and play a few games.

To the individual(s) who cause this massive interruption:
You all are headed to the jungle for a long, long time! You can run all you want, but you definitely can not hide!!!

Thank you Sony for all your hard work and support during this pause and to all PSN Users “Welcome Back”

everyone was telling me after the network went down it wouldnt be back up for a long time. they told me i should sell my ps3 and get an xbox. but i stood strong and i patiently waited for the network to come back up. as soon as i saw it was up i was ecstatic. i will continue to play on PSN and use sony products….FOREVER!

I’m having a problem getting my brother signed in. He didn’t download anything and we can’t get into the email account to change his password. Is it possible that there could be an option to change it on the site? I’ve seen dozens of other players with the same problem and had to make a different account.

I want to take the time to say thank you to you Kazuo Hirai & Sony. The video here in this Blog Posting was done nicely and with great thought towards us and about the issue. You all did a great job on it. I congratulate you all at Sony for all your hard work in dealing with this unprecedented situation. The Attack left the world looking at all you to see how you all would handle the situation and I think you all have done a great job so far. Obviously not everyone does but that is there opinion and does not bother me. All I can give is my opinion and for this being such an unprecedented attack and the largest of its kind, you all at Sony set the bar in handling it. Hopefully it will not happen again to you and to any other system; but if it does the people it happens to will have to look at you all at Sony to see how to handle it and how to improve on handling it.

Thank you again Kazuo Hirai and Sony. You all deserve it for all the hard work. :)

Now its time to Play. Game ON. :)

@ 63, Grats on somehow summing up the incredible amounts of courage and determination it took not to sell your system and all of your games during 4 whole weeks of waiting.

I don’t understand how some of you guys act like you were so smart for waiting. Of course it was coming back, we all KNEW it was coming back. Folks just had to be patient. I couldn’t play Portal 2 with my buddy or activate my Steam copy this whole time but I just did other things… and waited.

@74 Why are all you guys talking about xbox360? I have both and I think they’re both great systems. Ps3 has the edge with bluray and native wireless networking but at least I can play a fighting game with costumes on 360 and expect to have the other player SEE them.

Honestly you guys. Just get all the systems and build a sweet gaming PC and then you’ll never miss any great games and you’ll stop thinking in terms of “us” vs “them” and just be free to enjoy all gaming!
