Anyways, talking to my father in law about it, who is a network engineer, he explained it as basically the hackers are one step ahead of Sony, that they know everything they are gonna do before they do it, and he suspects that there may be a mole within Sony's infrastructure who is reporting to the hacking group, mainly assumed to be a large group known as "Anonymous".

Sony has asked the U.S. Government for help regarding this issue, and I certainly hope that there is someone within the Govt's cyber crime division or whatever, that can catch whoever the hackers are. But I'm not so sure.

Basically say goodbye to PSN after this, i dont see it ever being the same as we know it...

PSN is back up. With free stuff to. Kind of wish I had a bigger hard drive.
PSN Appreciation Program perks detailed, News from GamePro

Still my main fear is that Sony uses this as an excuse to charge for online play. Being an XBox owner I can tell you that the price increases continue to get old, especially when they're justified with features that I have no interest in (Facebook for example).

So during that time, we've definitely got to fund it, and we want to add more and more and more. ESPN is a great example. No extra charge for Xbox Live Gold members. But we want to continue to bring that content in. We also want to continue to innovate on all dimensions, whether it's social, entertainment, or gaming. So there you go.
Seriously. Why do I need ESPN on my X-Box in the first place? I have cable and internet access which are much easier to use and navigate. It would be great if they added it for free but it's more along the lines of charging me stuff I don't need.

Basically the price increase also gets you exclusive DLC games (which you have to pay for), Zune, Twitter, Facebook, and ESPN among others.

Glad to see the system is workign again but i have my doubts. I also am going to be using prepaid game cards of some nature for PSN from here on out, because I was lucky that I had no information stolen, or any charges to my account, etc....

So far so good. It's very detailed...dialog is so so...heavy on second tier actors you know from tv/movies...Cole is played by Aaron Staton from Mad Men.

Yup so far so good. I found turning off all the helps makes it more challenging and fun. And yes it's the guy from Mad Men!! I guess he finally hit the big time.

Looks OK but not much different then the current Wii, nothing ground breaking and I think the new video remote is kind of lame.

I'm wondering how much the system and then each individual control pad is gonna set people back because to keep the same quality of graphics from the tv to the controller is going to mean the controller is going to require almost, if not the exact same, horsepower of the system itself. I already feel victim to the hype that was the Wii, it's too little too late with the harcore titles for me so Nintendo will not be getting my money for the retardly named Wii U.

I can't really tell. Is it still PS2 level graphics on steroids?

I am so not excited about the Wii U but really the Wii/Wii U don't really target hardcore gamers. So maybe they got it right that I am not excited.

Well the scary thing is if casual is still their main target, they might have some issues because there have been a lot of the guys for IGN, G4, etc have been saying the controller was really awkward and confusing for most of what they've gotten hands on time with. I know it's got a year or so before it comes out, but thats not a good sign if tech/hardcore gamers are having issues with something u want moms and kids playing.
