Would You Stick With Sony if the PSN Went Down Again?

Millions upon millions of PS3 owners are more than frustrated with the current PSN situation. It sure doesn’t help when Sony doesn’t even know when their servers will be back online either. What’s more the PSN was supposed to be back up late last week but that didn’t happen. Needless to say PS3 gamers are not happy right now even if this event isn’t entirely Sony’s fault. But what if this happens again in the future? Let’s say the PSN comes back online whenever it does and six months later…it goes down because of another hacker problem. Would you stick with Sony and your PS3?

Well we asked that very question to our loving followers/readers and we got a resounding yes. In fact, 95% of them said they’d stick with their PlayStation. Wow…I mean that brought tears to my eyes personally. Not only did our followers voice a yes or no but detailed why they’d choose their course of action. You can view some of my favorite comments below. This goes to show that gamers aren’t all puppets that can be manipulated on a whim and can look past a console’s online capabilities. After all didn’t we use to get video game systems so we could enjoy a video game’s story?

Kahjahkins – I would totally stick by Sony, they have awesome games and a great system. Why wouldn’t I?
Dingo3784 – Damn right it’s not Sony’s fault! Any company could be hacked. The Yanks need to stop the lawsuits or the hackers have won!!!
DeanM1978 – I’d be upset if it happens again but I have to stick with Sony/PS3. I got PS3 for free online, Blu-Ray & I had three 360s RROD.
Kazuyasasa – Absolutely! I didn’t buy a PS3 for its PSN capabilities. But yes, it does annoy me that SSF4 on XBL still works! lol
NEO_METATRON – Don’t care about the downtime of a free service, but they lost my trust with their catastrophic state of security & arrogance!
YellowYami – Yea, online multiplayer isn’t all a system has to offer.
StefReeves – Yes, without a doubt. Some hacker screwing around won’t stop me supporting Sony or PlayStation. I’ve been a fan for far too long.
unthrown – All the way, **** m$!
wildfireZer0 – No, Sony can go to hell.

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
