    it was down for a bit for me too. Had something to do with user accounts because I could connect to live but I couldn't sign in with my gamertag. Mine is back up now though.

    My sensationalist title is really just a complaint about this always on nonsense. I hope they're wise enough to back that out. Failure can happen all along the line and not just *my* Internet .

    Or we could all just piss on anonymous, as it was "apparently" a simple DDOS attack.

    Funny how PSN goes down for maintenance for hours on end every other month and no one complains, but the minute XBL goes down for 1 hour the whole year everyone is taking the piss. You have no idea how many PSN fanboys around the world rejoiced at this just because they are still hurting over PSN being hacked and down for like a month.

    nicely timed to show why always on for single player is such a bad idea.

    I agree, and also I don't think MS will go with always online for single player. Haven't recent rumors suggested otherwise?

    Anyone else think the OP was banking on Live being down far longer than what it was? LOL!

    I think the OP was just trying to make a point about always on.

    I thought it was debunked? Anyone?

    Hasn't been debunked or confirmed to be true yet. I don't think there is much to be worried about when it comes to playing games.

    I think anyone who was hurt by this soon forgot after we got our free games. I don't think many people give a $#@! anymore.

    Also, this thread was point made against "always on", not a HAHA @ xbl users.

    Totally agreed, I just hope that with all the negativity this always-on "feature" is getting, MS will not implement it after all. It's just a software thing - granted at system level (according to the rumors) but still just a few lines of code - so they can undo the always-on (assuming they implemented it in the first place) feature without any delays to their launch/unveiling.

    I don't think anyone affected by that will ever forget. Free games were ok but won't erase the memory of that debacle. Just like a 360 slim won't make people forget RROD.

    I'm assuming you weren't here when that went down. I was reevaluating my life by day 10.

    So then you disagree with yourself? lol.

    You're disagreeing with yourself within your post actually.

    i.e. "no one [PSN users] complains" "they [PSN users] are still hurting over PSN being hacked"

    So which one is it? Or was it to fit your argument lol. I mean, that's fine but let's at least stick with one thing.

    I was pissed off, I saw tons of threads about it, people were raging and quitting...I'm surprised someone thinks that no one complained. Why else would Sony give out free games?

    Hurting and complaining are two different things.

    Also I specifically said no one was complaining about the monthly outages for hours when sony does maintenance.. I wasn't referring to when PSN was hacked.

    So yeah, end of convo.

    EDIT: Nvm my bad, I thought you were talking about the hack. I have astigmatism.

    I've seen the outtage once or twice but I barely ever notice it.

    I guess you get what you pay for.

    Yes it does. Not sure what about it is difficult to grasp.

    It's a fairly simple premise to get regardless if you think Always online is a good thing or not.

    lol Why'd they attack this time?

    REGARDLESS - it's these sort of weird occurrences that you can't account for if you require online play for Single-player games. It's par for the course if you're expecting to play a Multi-player title or a component of a game.

    All the best servers in the world + all the bandwidth and speed in the world can't defend against a successful attack (and things like outages etc).

    Whatever you do MS, Leave the single player/offline play alone, and you'll be fine.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    You're always going to get the opposition more upset than usual but I can understand if someone was legitimately upset as it is paid but really 1 hr is not a big deal.

    But I have been pissed off when the game servers aren't working, somehow I don't care if PSN is down, weird lol.
