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.

Andrew EisenI don't know, maybe a heaping, helping of DRM is the panacea for all that ails Konami.07/06/2015 - 1:24am

PHX Corphad there been a sonic 4 episode 3, I would Buy it on Steam, Xbox 360 and PS3 right away07/05/2015 - 10:10pm
Andrew EisenWell, what if Konami released MGS 5 with a mandatory $60 plastic peripheral? Do you think that would help?07/05/2015 - 8:09pm
MattsworknameI dont think so, I think that between the lose of iga, kojima, and so forth, i think MGS 5 will be less succesfull then they think, and tha will spell there end.07/05/2015 - 7:08pm
Andrew EisenI'm sure the Metal Gear micro-transactions will keep 'em afloat!07/05/2015 - 6:58pm
MattsworknameKonami is dying, slowly, surely, inevitably. Capcom is in the same situation, and I think that if they don't get there respective acts together, there going to pull a thq and sell off all there IP.07/05/2015 - 6:51pm
Andrew EisenHowever, if you have a gaming PC and like PC gaming, the Wii U is arguably the best console you could get (unless you just don't care for Nintendo's games, of course).07/05/2015 - 6:07pm
Andrew EisenAnyway, if the Wii U is your only gaming platform, yeah, you're missing out on a ton of great stuff.07/05/2015 - 6:06pm
Andrew EisenMatthew is referring to my latest video, if anyone's wondering. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkuL1UVHYJA07/05/2015 - 6:00pm
Matthew Wilson@AE the wiiu may have the best exclusives among consoles, but lack of third party support kills it. now if we want to play the exclusives game, the pc wins, not just in numbers,but some of the best games I have played.07/05/2015 - 5:53pm

Andrew EisenImagine if Nintendo started charging for the Super Guide feature it has in some of it's games. That's what the MGS microtransactions sound like to me.07/05/2015 - 12:36pm

InfophileI know the ZE series was in the red in Japan, but international series boosted it to profitability. That may not mean it's more profitable in the west, but it does mean ZE3 wouldn't exist without the western market.07/04/2015 - 7:54am
