    Prodigal Son Returning

    Hello all.

    I was a P1 and P2 owner in my past. In this past generation I was focused on using my gaming console as a device that could stream music from my PC to my home theatre. I later expanded into movies and TV shows. I bought a Ps3, but ran into a constant slew of connectivity errors, that new routers, different settings, and countless forum searches could not fix. So I traded in my PS3 for an Xbox 360.

    I have been pleased over the years with my Xbox. Looking at this new generation, I can firmly say, that if Sony comes out without DRM on used games, I will be switching back to a Ps4.

    So in peperation, I went out and checked my old Ps3 username.. yep still there... and then my old forum account here..

    It was there as well.

    I was member of PS3 forums before it merged with PSU. At one time I had about 1.5 Million points in the bank, cause I never spent them. Is there any way to go back and research that? Or with the merger and such am I just out of luck? Really not that big of a deal, as I dont know what I would spend them on anyway. Just thought I would ask.

    Thanks!

    Welcome back... always good to see returning members!

    As for the points, we have no way to go back and look into that. When we did a forum upgrade in 2010, a good portion of the database at that point was wiped out due to the incompatibility of our points system with the new forum software. Also right now, we are in a little state of flux when it comes to our SP (point) system. We are possibly going to a different means to point accumulation.

    Welcome back, post away. If we can come to a solution on the shop, maybe I can look to refund some of your points!

    Thanks for the kind welcome. Im not really that bothered about the points. After watching the Xbox 1 vs PS4 presentations, im firmly convinced now that Im coming back to the Playstation brand. Don't get me wrong, I love my 360. (Actually I love both of them, I have one for me and one for the kids), but lower price, no DRM, no forced attached camera, no paying extra to watch TV while I video game (does anyone do that?). Yeah. Im back. Im sure I will be one of many.

    It's a welcome message from you friend and we all seem to be thinking hard on this
