Random Rant: PSN Downtime
Today is Thursday May 5, 2011, and as of now it has been down for over 2 weeks. While everyone else is bitching that they want it up now and that they owe them for being “loyal customers” and it’s ruining their online gaming I see it as a way to fill up my PSN profile with trophies. We all know I am an achievement whore, and now we can add trophy whore to that list.
I bought my PS3 2 days after the network went down, with the promise from Sony that it would only be down a couple of days. Fast forward over 2 weeks later and it’s still not up and there is still no light at the end of this tunnel. By no means am I happy about this and yes I want it up as quickly as possible, I mean shit the first game I bought was Demon’s Souls so that I could play co-op with a friend but it’s not affecting as much as most seeing as how I have a 360. I decided when I bought the PS3 that I would use it strictly for single player games and maybe some co-op, and all multiplayer games will be played on the 360. I am not a fanboy it’s just the honest truth that Microsoft has a better online community then Sony, plus add the fact that Sony multiplayer is constantly being exploited it’s just a smarter choice.
I figure until PSN comes back online I’ll just play all the games I wanted to check out but never could because I didn’t have a PS3. In the 2 weeks I have owned the system I have only play Demon’s Souls (4% trophies), God of War 3 (77% trophies) and Uncharted 2 (27% trophies). Next Gamefly is sending me Killzone 2 and Resistance, but come next Tuesday I will be playing the shit out of Brink. Thats how I’m spending my PSN downtime how are you guys out there spending yours?
P.S. Sony please put the network up soon at least so I can download Netflix, because my pregnant wife keeps ripping me a new one because I got rid of the Wii and replaced it with the PS3, so yes you are kind of ruining my shit!
