Sony PSN Misery Continues: Xbox Live Chosen Option

April 24, 2022 | Maddy Rowe

As we start off yet another day, and that of Easter Sunday, many of you no doubt were hoping for a miracle in that the Sony PlayStation Network Outage had been sorted out giving you the benefit of having some hardcore gaming session. Unfortunately not!

Yesterday we posed the question whether you as a gamer, would be willing to pay for a more secure network and the response that came from our readers was that “no” you wouldn’t with some of you expressing that Sony should give some sort of compensation for the downtime. This is obviously an argument for some who may say that the PSN service is free and Sony are doing their best to fix the problem that has been ongoing since Wednesday 20th April.

The latest from Sony in relation to rectifying the problem is that they are in the process of “re-building their infrastructure.” So how are many of you coping? Have you found other things to partake in or have you turned to Xbox’s Live service to get your fix of online gaming.

In an interesting article from the guys over at Ubergizmo via electronictheatre, it seems Microsoft have expressed their feelings towards Sony’s misfortune. In a statement from a spokesperson they said, “Of course it’s regretful that Sony is encountering issues at such a busy time, and Microsoft takes no joy in the problems gamers are having playing their favourite games online.”

Following on from this they added, “That being said, we are expecting Microsoft’s robust online network to see an increase of traffic from those gamers who own both systems. Being able to play their games via the Xbox Live network could make all the difference for some gamers.”

We are interested to find out what you have been doing, have you yourself turned to Xbox Live?

    I thoroughly enjoy my PS3 and is the one thing I've looked forward to over the Easter break. However, I've found myself being more and more drawn to the XBox during this ongoing PSN saga. I'm now seriously contemplating getting myself an Xbox today. By providing no indication to loyal PS3 users of how long PSN is likely to be down and when normal service will resume makes a mockery of the loyalty that PS3 owners have shown.

    INSIDE JOB YEAH! MS has paid someone within the PSN network to make sure it's down over Easter, then, MS offers free Xbox live for everyone over the weekend, this is especially good for those with both consoles, MS are hoping it will encourage those who mainly play on PSN to upgrade their Xbox live to gold, this is all true, just open your eyes sheeple, inside job yeah! demolition yeah! Building 7 yeah! NWO yeah! Zionists and all that yeah!
