Get Well Soon PlayStation Network

I’ve been slacking lately, but I’m trying my best to get back on track.  Anyway, something else’s that’s been slacking lately is the PSN, PlayStation Network, which has been down for over a week.  Slacking may have been a bad word to use seeing as Sony have been working hard to basically redo the entire network, plus they’ve been sued over the whole thing, but hey I needed a segway, which apparently isn’t a proper word according to spell check.

The reason the PSN is down is because hackers got in and stole player’s personal details.  This includes; real names, e-mail address and even credit card details.  Don’t panic, the credit card details were encrypted, it all comes down to how good a job Sony did encrypting them.

Exactly how much longer the PSN will be down is unclear, but Sony has announced that no one will lose any data.  This means your trophies are safe.  Sony is also trying to think of a way to reward players for being so patient, not that you had a choice.  It’ll probably be a patience trophy or something cheap like that.  Then again, I shouldn’t make fun because avid trophy collectors would probably love it.  Let’s just hope the PlayStation Network makes a speedy recovery.

What do you think?  Are you a fan of the trophy system?  What have you been doing since the PSN went down?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.
