Psn is so stupid. They deserve it, trying to control how people use their product. It's like saying you can't use your computer for gaming, or watching movies, can't really think of an analogy. But, what gives them the right to take away the ability to install an operating system on the console they sold and marketed for the exact thing, the ability to install an operating system. Only a small % of players know how to homebrew and then actually pirate games. I just saw this post on the main page and had to post, no fan boy here. At the very least though, xbox live servers have never been down for a month. Sure maybe intermittent access for a two week period one time, but you still had access. I don't care if you say it's a pay service, PSN is too now. Playstation Plus has A LOT of subscriptions.

Makes me glad I have a 360. A huge blow for Sony.

And for the people who are arguing in this thread take your pointless bickering to PM if you care that much about each other's opinions.

Lol you guys, making up 2-3 pages of lulzy arguments that don't even matter. Threads like this shouldn't even be opened, fucking flame/trollbait.

The title is wrong, PSN isn't back yet, they just announced, and who knows, Anon or whoever DDoS'd Sony might just attack them again.

Sony was within there rights to take away otherOS (Called terms of service,). Consoles are not PCs, when you buy a console you get a static devive for the main purpose of a more streamlined gaming experience. They did it to protect there devs from pirates. Yes they had otherOS as part of the PS3 marketing, but it wasn't like it was a main selling. Those few who knew how to pirate could easily spread how causiing a big problem.

Xbox live is a service tha requires the user pay Microsoft to kinnect to there servers to play games online, mandatory to get the full experience of many of the games, along with other marketed services. Thus your paing for XBL

PSN+ is a buyer's club, there are great discounts and digital rentals, but it is not mandatory to enjoy every thing a game has to offer, and as off now there is only one feature the PS3 has is exclusive to + members. So your not paying for PSN.

there is where i am going to disagree with on this. Sony adverted the ps3 as a "home computer console" whit the ability to install Linux and other OS on it. Here is the thing the "terms in those contracts" that you walk in to are not even readable or understandable by most consumers on the market. They say most can understand, guess what my dad who is 53 years old looked at one of the contracts all the way through and said I quote "what the hell is the bureaucrat shit".

This is my personal philosophy when I buy something "I buy it", i do not give a out a "license agreement to use it" my money my device and I will do with it what I damn will please "sorry for the small rant". Also stop with the whole pirating stick it's getting old are people really going to download and pirate 20-50 gig games with out their IP catching on the major increase in the bandwidth. If you want to talk about something illegal Sony did however steal the patent license for "blu-ray" from "LG" did it for their own thus causing a huge lawsuit agaisnt them even a few months back. Listen I am not going to defend or bash Sony I do like their products but as a consumer I tend to not like to be fucked over by anyone. The same goes for Micro$oft and Nintendo as well.

I got the email certification when I used my ps3, but I still get the "The site is undergoing maintenance" message when I try to go to the PS store. ._.

Really? I've been waiting for an hour for the email thing and still nothing. Oh yeah, the store probably won't be working until the 31st of may. What a bummer I wanted to get Arcana Hearts 3 <3
Posted 5/15/11
You can try obtaining the email if you use your ps3 system. I've first tried it with my laptop and didn't get anything. I think the store is suppose to be up along with the network so I hope it wasn't pushed to May 31st.
