Yeah, buying the PS3 version of Portal 2 has turned out to be a *great* idea. :/

Most of my chums are ps3 fanboys, I admit i own one but only use it as a media box, best thing for it imho.

It amuses me no end how much my mates are whining about the network being down when they're in the pub, somewhat ironic as they're only in the pub as the psn is down! Not only has their fitness increased by walking to the pub so has their social lives, I think there's a moral here somewhere!

Sony are damn lucky they put the BluRay player into the PS3, its the only thing that's desuading me from X-ing it in for an Xbox!

Going by Sony's past deadline failures i.e. GT5 and the PS3 itself I hold out little hope of the May 31st target date being met.

It's extremely annoying but having said that we seem to be forgetting one important thing... they've just had one of the most catastrophic natural disasters in modern history so it's possible it may take them a while to get their **** together =)

WTF am I saying... pull yer finger out and get my PSN back Mutha Lickas!!!! Peace! Out!

On the plus side we should get 2 free games (probably minis from the store) from a choice of 5 and PSP users get 2 from a choice of 4

I got hold of Portal 2 free, only to play it on PC originally. However, as I couldn't do the steam/psn thing, I went ahead and tbh, rather enjoyed playing it on PS3. The fact that it had been made with joypad in mind (thankfully - the thought of accelerating through successive portals was a constant worry) made it play beautifully.

Unfortunately, my mrs can't get the hang of using one thumb to 'go' and another to change the view/direction so I can't do co-op (despite my best efforts solo).

I enjoyed P2 on my PS3, despite the PSN being down. As it isn't a twitch shooter, it was quite relaxing being able to chill on the sofa and play on the big screen. I do like my PS3 (well, both of them), and the PSN being down is a pain, especially as I can't activate my Steam copy.

The crowing from 'hardcore' PC gamers is also a bit annoying. I play more than my fair share of PC games, but no point being a dick about it!

I do understand why people are getting so frustrated but do you really want sony to rush back online and then the same thing happen again?
NO i dont think so.
Give sony the time they need to fix this problem otherwise it WILL happen again.
Its a gaming console, not the end of the world.
To all you people that are saying "screw sony i'm getting an xbox" i say screw you if you are that sad that u need to buy another console just so u can play games online.
I'm support sony all the way, you wanna moan at someone? Moan at the hackers.
