Webcomics Take On PSN Outage

April 29, 2011 -

Hey guys!  Did you hear the one about Sony turning off the PlayStation Network due to some type of security breach and then *snicker* leaving its entire userbase in the dark for nearly a week before telling them that *snort* all of their personal data had been stolen except maybe their credit card data?

Bwa ha ha ha ha!  Oh ho ho ho!  Woo!  Oh man, good times.

What?  Too soon?  Not funny?  Okay, well maybe these webcomics’ take on the ongoing Sony PSN kerfuffle will strike a bit closer to your funny bones.

I like the VGCats one, they took both a shot at Sony and Gawker.

Re: Webcomics Take On PSN Outage

I like the first penny arcade strip the best out of the four of them.

They don't seem to realize that they're just rubbing it in our faces. I don't give a crap what Kevin Butler has to say on the situation. I certainly don't give a crap what Kevin Butler has to say on the situation in a dozen different art styles. (Real original by the way guys.)

How about you show some class and respect the VICTIMS here, otherwise known as your fans.

Re: Webcomics Take On PSN Outage

Clearly someones's never heard of satire.

Re: Webcomics Take On PSN Outage

I honestly don't see how any of these comics, all of which are taking the piss out of Sony, are rubbing anything in the faces of affected users or in any way disrespecting them.

Re: Webcomics Take On PSN Outage

Especially considering the writers of said comics are also extremely likely to be victims. They are video game comics, after all.

???

Those are comics from people who are not Sony.

Re: Webcomics Take On PSN Outage

This might come as a shock to you, but the readers of video game themed web comics and the customers of PSN are a lot of the same people. 

I'm talking about the fans of their comics. 

Re: Webcomics Take On PSN Outage

Yes, because I'm sure the guys at Penny Arcade (or these other comics) didn't have their personal data stolen. *rolls eyes*

Re: Webcomics Take On PSN Outage

Quite the contrary. These writers are gaming connoisseurs who own and play every system, and, yes, are suffering alongside everyone else.

Two things: The first comics were writen when the worst problem gamers thought were suffering was loss of online multiplayer.

Second of of all, this is all trying to look at the lighter side of the situation. You want to mope and cry, that's fine. But some people try to put a happier face on the whole thing.

Re: Webcomics Take On PSN Outage

I know this is in jest but it comes out as bad as all the other kneejerk comments on this situation.

MaskedPixelanteIt's a bunch of people whining about boycotting/pirating Trails in the Sky FC because XSEED didn't license the Japanese dub track, which consists of about 10 lines per character.07/29/2014 - 11:27am
Sleaker@MP - devolver Digital issued a twitter statement saying they would replace the NISA pledge.07/29/2014 - 10:57am

Papa MidnightIt's not bad so far, but I am honestly not sure what to make of it (or where it's going for that matter)07/28/2014 - 9:44pm
Matthew Wilsonis it any good?07/28/2014 - 9:36pm
Papa Midnight"Love Child" on HBO -- anyone else watching this?07/28/2014 - 9:27pm
MaskedPixelanteNah, I'm fine purple monkey dishwasher.07/28/2014 - 4:05pm
Sleaker@MP - I hope you didn't suffer a loss of your mental faculties attempting that.07/28/2014 - 3:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOK, so my brief research looking at GameFAQs forums (protip, don't do that if you wish to keep your sanity intact.), the 3DS doesn't have the power to run anything more powerful than the NES/GBC/GG AND run the 3DS system in the background.07/28/2014 - 11:01am
ZenMatthew, the 3DS already has GBA games in the form of the ambassador tittles. And I an just as curious about them not releasing them on there like they did the NES ones. I do like them on the Wii U as well, but seems weird. And where are the N64 games?07/28/2014 - 10:40am
james_fudgeNo. They already cut the price. Unless they release a new version that has a higher price point.07/28/2014 - 10:19am
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, It most likely is. The question is whether Nintendo wants to do it.07/28/2014 - 10:12am
Matthew WilsonI am sure the 3ds im more then powerful enough to emulate a GBA game.07/28/2014 - 9:54am
Sleaker@IanC - while the processor is effectively the same or very similar, the issue is how they setup the peripheral hardware. It would probably require creating some kind of emulation for the 3DS to handle interfacing with the audio and input methods for GBA07/28/2014 - 9:30am
Sleaker@EZK - hmmm, that makes sense. I could have sworn I had played GB/GBC games on it too though (emud of course)07/28/2014 - 9:23am
E. Zachary KnightSleaker, the DS has a built in GBA chipset in the system. That is why it played GBA games. The GBA had a seperate chipset for GB and GBColor games. The DS did not have that GB/GBC chipset and that is why the DS could not play GB and GBC games.07/28/2014 - 7:25am
IanCI dont think Nintendo ever gave reason why GBA games a reason why GBA games aren't on the 3DS eshop. The 3DS uses chips that are backwards compatable with the GBA ob GBA processor, after all.07/28/2014 - 6:46am
Sleakerhmmm that's odd I could play GBA games natively in my original DS.07/28/2014 - 1:39am
