how can you be against the hackers, if there was the stupid make everything private ownership and all the other rules to pirating there wouldnt be hackers going after sony. Its the big corporations that are the problem not the hackers.

Well...People need to get with the program and get an Xbox already.
Yea, you have to pay for XB live, but, at least It's always up and running and secure.

So far......

You make me
Xbox is not more secure just because you pay for it, you use the credit card to pay for the subscription, and if a litle hole is there, the hackers will also be there, it's happening all the time all over the net.

This is a seriuos thing with the PSN, but lets see how it turns out, and you can allways buy the prepaid cards for both, so that alone lowers the risk.
And by the way, i jumped of the Xbox after 3 RRoD and no new exclusive games, my children loves the PS3 for the games and the numbers of them + no subscription to pay, just for being able to game online.

Peace

Exactly I mean how much more safe is the x box? If whoever hacked the psn put the time and effort then he or they could of done the same to the x box, this whole thing if fishy as hell to me. And yup same here switched over from the x box to the ps3 as well, when the dam thing keeps rrod and black screening on me, and not only that more then half the people I knew or played with online had the same problems, and some even bought like 4 different x boxes because they kept breaking.

But this thing with hacking the psn is more serious then i thought, as well as a criminal offence because of all the personal info they can get like credit card numbers and such. It looks like the psn will be down for a while.

Then don't pay, nobody can "make" you pay for an optional service.

Oh I know no one can make me pay, but my teenage son will probably beg the heck outa me and make my life miserable until I do pay. He is already bi@#hen about it every other day. He will just have to find his own way to pay cause I ain't got it!!

Heh, I love that attitude. :]

Probably exactly how I'd be if I had any children. "Oh you want this? Buy it yourself!".
