    I'm not sure we deserve much. Unless a plus user, we don't pay and you run a risk no matter what when putting our info out there. They handled it wrong though, so I will appreciate the month.

    I haven't verified but I also read somewhere we will get some free downloads. Don't know if that means plus downloads or something extra.

    I've been constantly running Google searches at work for "Playstation network" at most recent so it constantly updates. Apparently, a lot of people think this is why we finally killed Osama....

    Congress heard this morning that Sony was using outdated software on its servers for months prior to the recent PSN hacks.
    Speaking to the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade yesterday, Dr. Gene Spafford of Purdue University said that Sony had been using outdated software on its servers for months, and that nothing had been done about it.
    Spafford claimed that security experts had spotted Sony was using outdated versions of the Apache Web server software and had no firewall installed. The issue was apparently "reported in an open forum monitored by Sony employees" some two to three months before the recent breaches.
    Full details on yesterday's hearing, including Spafford's testimony, can be found here. Sony declined to testify at the hearing, causing the Subcommittee's chairperson Mary Bono Mack to bring forward the deadline for Kaz Hirai to answer her burning questions to today.

    Wow what a farce....

    a complete and utter joke...

    I thought Sony was on the cutting edge of technology? Maybe this will prompt them to improve their online experience.

    As an Xbox Live Gold and Sony Plus member, Microsoft blows Sony away when it comes to online experience and content.

    You know you can't even have party chat on PS3 without everyone going into a dedicated room (i.e. can't play diff. games while chatting with friends)? Woefully antiquated.

    Agreed.

    My roommate has Sony Plus, and I'm glad I didn't add it to my PS3. Everything about the online experience is better on XBL. I don't even bother with most multiplayer games on PS3 if they're also available for the 360.

    They are adding the party chat soon after or with the PSN being brought up.

    I choose the PS3 because its for me. I agree the XBOX has its advantages and am not a fanboy. The PS3 would blow the xbox away if it wasn't for the multiplatform games. So many games are dumbed down so they can be easily ported over to xbox. I also hate that xbox charges for so many things that come with the purchase of a ps3. I would love to have them both but cannot justify it as of now.

    This is annoying me. It cost me most of my free month of MLB.tv, and my Netflix hasn't worked in the month that this has been down. I think it's really a crappy move that they offer nothing in the way of re-imbursement to their customers that the experience has been detracted from; because it's an 'added service anyways'. PS3 is a joke

    I've had problems with consoles from both M$ and Sony. Microsoft treated me well, Sony basically said "deal with it." When it came time to buy a replacement console, guess which way I went? Sony has woefully inept customer service and PR.

    I don't know why, but my Netflix is still working. I have to try to login a couple of times, and go back and eventually it just lets me into the queue (never actually finishes the login process). Which is pretty lucky, because we'd have serious problems if we didn't have access to Thomas the Train around here.

    According to a report by Bloomberg news, they're targeting May 31st as the date to re-launch PSN w/ improved security protocols:

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-0...n-restart.html
    The company is in the process of adopting an improved security system and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31 is unchanged, he said. Sony shut down the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services April 20 because of possible data theft by hackers.
    So, roughly 3 more weeks of downtime.
