Pretty much you should know about this if you have a PS3, but the reason the PSN is down is because of hackers. If you have a PSN, the hackers have your information.

More information here

LOL

This could be VERY dangerous if PSN holds your credit card information. Xbox gamertags do something like this im not very sure about it, it might be held in the console (???)

Also, GG, buy an xbox.

umad PS?

lol holy crap, I didn't even hear about this until today. Guess that shows how much I use PSN.

Luckily, I only used trash info with PSN and didn't buy anything.

But it's still shame and a total embarrassment for Sony.

edit:
some good one-liners from Twitter
Spoiler:
"PSN's down for a week, my credit card info might be stolen, but the most irritating thing about Sony's service is still the name 'Qriocity.'"

"Mortal Kombat exclusive: Kratos. Xbox 360 Mortal Kombat exclusive: being online."

"I better go change my birthday."

"Man, Kevin Butler better have a ****ing gut-buster in his quiver to win me back this time."

"At Sony we believe in an open platform. A very open platform."

And here comes the lawsuits for those hoping to get money from Sony.. Yes, I think that Sony handled the situation pretty badly imo but delaying the announcement a WEEK late... seriously?! >_> Sony has a lot of work to do now to restore both new and old people from buying PS3s or those not logging onto PSN to buy content.

Well, if the console offers security and holds your credit card information in order to purchase games, and then it gets stolen... might as well sue the company for not being secure enough.

Now this is gonna be one big hit for the console market, before, I would have a hard time choosing between PS3 and Xbox 360, now I dont even wanna know what Sony is gonna release, its just not reliable to me anymore.

Well, it will really only affect people who used their CC for PSN services.

I have lots of friends who don't give a damn because they don't buy anything on their network. They buy the games and stuff from their local stores.

Well PSN is back up and is trying to win back forgiveness:

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/05/16/details-for-playstation-network-and-qriocity-customer-appreciation-program-in-north-america/

looks like the plan is to throw some free stuff out and hope the whole thing will blow over.

i suppose i'll be grabbing that copy of infamous + wipeout on one acc and also probably little big planet + uh stardust?, i don't even know what that is, with the other acc

I am worried about Sony, I think they have become complacent from years of being at the top !
They thought it was funny when Micrsoft launched the X-box, but in England it is much cheaper than the PS3 and selling in huge numbers.
Now Microsoft have bought Skype it looks likely the X-box will be sold with Skype already included !

The PS1 and PS2 had many great games, but there does not seem to be that many for the PS3 !
