There is one issue no one talks about when a situation like this comes up. Since it was distributed between states, would it be interstate trafficking of illegal goods? Something, you know, they've used against organized crime to make something a federal offense. And thus, up the fines and jail time substantially.
BTW...forgot one thing... In the past, the PSN Marketplace has gone down for voluntary maintenance. And guess what, we've still been able to play the game. There's no reason for users to jump through a hoop that isn't always there.
I do understand what I own. A game system where I pay a monthly fee to play an online video game. PSN is merely a portal to get to the game. The game server is independent. It's exactly the same problem people have with always-on games. Except for one thing...If Always-on games can't reach the game server, they can't be verified as users and can't play. If the PSN is down, the game servers can still verify we are players. The only thing we can't do is real-world currency transactions. But we could still do everything else. Because we already paid for the service. They have our money. Please let us in.
The thing is, the game servers are just fine. If we didn't have to go through the Playstation Network we'd be playing the games right now. In fact, some of us were playing this morning after the attack occurred. But since we were already logged in we could keep playing. After the game servers went down for daily maintenance, and we then tried to log back in, did we realize there was a problem. This then brings up the big question: Why do Playstation users have to first get recognized by the PSN? It has been asked many times over the years with no good answer. When something like this occurs, why not just let us bypass the PSN and play the games. Yes, we won't be able to add money to our accounts, redeem codes, or buy updates. But so what. We'd still be able to play.
Dear Sony: Could you please do the sequel in Gambia.
Let's say I own an internet business. I notice that a profile is fake and delete it off the system. Suddenly, I'm told by the police it was theirs. And, if I don't put it back up it's obstruction of justice. Note: Told to do so, not "here's a court order." Does the ruling make this scenario feasible? And if so, what is the liability for the company if they do or don't make the account viable again.
If there was ever a time to re-release Zoolander, it's now!
And yet we've had three Sharknado movies.
They should just let Netflix rent it out a month at a time..."Okay, who's next in the queue?"
What pop stars were they pretending to be instead of doing their jobs?
Where's the Pizza Planet Truck?
...should be given tickets to a Justin Bieber concert.
This reminds me of an early version of the program Painter. Instead of a box, it came in a paint can. I always wondered what the cost comparison was between the two.
These were all the rage back in the 1970's. A simple three touch-screen button interface and you're done. https://img1.etsystatic.com/01...
