Webcomics Take On PSN Outage

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
