PSXE Poll Update: PSN Outage Bad, But Not Crippling
After the nightmare week Sony had, we wanted to know how the lack of a PlayStation Network has affected your entertainment.
For many who use the PSN to download movies and TV shows, and tend to play a lot of multiplayer, the loss of those services was bound to chafe. But in our recent poll, the majority admitted to being a little upset about the whole fiasco, but they're trying to be patient. In fact, a great many said that because they still have their single-player fun, things aren't so bad. We do tend to have older gamers (and a lot of RPG fans), who aren't too hooked on Network-related entertainment, but the lack of a PSN has definitely affected just about everyone to some extent. As you've already heard, some services will be back online this week, which is good news (even if we'll still be missing the Store).
But now that you've had time to process the whole situation and some time has gone by, how do you feel about the PSN in general? Has this ordeal shaken your trust in the service? Are you convinced this is an isolated incident and Sony has taken appropriate strides for the future? Or have you determined to spend more (or all) of your time with Xbox Live as a direct result? Let us know.
