    @mynd - it wasn't just a 'few' people IIRC.

    I don't have a horse in this race - don't really put much stock in these things (i.e. as in furiously trying to defend one company's "rep" and trying to tarnish another *shrug*).

    It was a while back - so enough time for my memory to either serve or fail me.

    I remember the Christmas one in 08
    That sucked big time, not being able to play new games or ya new 360 online for weeks during and after Christmas, and live games was tied to your account then too
    There wasn't a big reason behind it like Sony's but thats probably the worst time for any network to go down at Christmas
    Halo 3 did it reckon lol

    Yeah that was just a surge in users Microsoft didnt see coming. Nice fo rthem I guess.

    @admartin.

    No it was, we had the same guy repteadly blog aabout it, and then got his friends to blog about it.
    then the claimed they were contact by heaps of other people with the issue.

    MS came out and said, yup it did happen, BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE ARE STUPID, not because they got hacked.

    See above? I'm not trying to defend or tarnish any company's rep either. Why would I? What would I gain personally from that. And why wasn't it? Because PSN was shut down for over a month thats why. Thats why it got more coverage. Not because of some nefarious agenda against Sony. lol And the reason you didnt hear much about the Live thing was because it wasnt a widespread issue but rather some random guy blogging about it claiming lots of people supposedly contacted him about it. It was just a few stupid people falling for phishing schemes. Thats why we never heard anymore about it.

    Just goes to show how wildly popular Halo 3 was. The servers got pounded with Halo players.

    I wasn't referring that you were doing anything lol. I was saying see above about if my memory served me correctly or not.
