Microsoft LOLs at PSN Failure

By Kenneth Richardson

April 22, 2011

PlayStation 3 gamers have no doubt noticed the error plaguing the PlayStation Network over the last few days. I know I have, because today marks the third day I haven’t been able to play Arcana Hearts 3 online. Tragic. From an admittedly lofty position, Microsoft has issued their opinion on Sony’s troubles, obviously taking the opportunity to endorse the 360:

“Of course it’s regretful that Sony is encountering issues at such a busy time, and Microsoft takes no joy in the problems gamers are having playing their favourite games online.”

After this, the representative basically started blowing the Xbox and expressing their happiness about this weekend’s Xbox Nations event, which will of course allow Xbox owners to play online without a gold account.

They even pointed out that hot multi-player titles like Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat only just hit stores. As you can imagine, it was ugly. The ball is in Sony’s court now, but with no word on when PSN will be back up and running, it doesn’t look good. Guess it’s time for me to dust off that old 360 and trade in my PS3 version of MK.
