    Not correct...It was on a mainstream news propa-tainment program last night in NZ. But i agree it is all for nought.

    Just received my official Welcome Back email from Sony for the two free games. First step is to log onto the Playstation Store for the download, was greeted with An error has occurred (80710D36) message. Did a quick Google and it looks like others on the gaming forums are having the same problem ... and the hits just keep a comin' :rolleyes:

    Things are looking a little better, able to sign on this morning and start the download for inFamous. When I attempted to to download the second game wipEout HD, hit the download button got a "Not at this Time" message. Navigated through the Playstation Store back to this point and the option to pick the second game was gone. Bounced off of Account Management a few times but finally got through Transaction Management to the Download List and was able to complete the downloads from there.

    Both games are now installed, somehow getting something tangible for free always makes you feel better :cool:

    @Mizzou: On ThePirateBay you can do just the same, hope everyone feels the same about getting every bit of personal information on the internet for a couple bucks and feel better.
     
  9. Come on Sony; I thought you asian guys were smarter than this... while I disagree with Lipe123 who said "...Sony has been shafting people for too long, they had this coming. The best part is they got hacked jsut recently and STILL didn't do a thing, the company stinks and deserve this..." I don't think they deserved this. Personally I think it's a team of Halo playing di@k heads just trying to take out the competition.
    I've been buying Sony products since I can remember and this won't stop me. Anyone who stored their credit card number is an ***** anyway(too lazy to get your wallet?). I'm still playing COD, AC and BFBC online so fu@k it.
     
  10. Hack sony as much as you want, i will keep my ps3 and luckily my account never got hacked.

    All of this could have been avoided if Sony could just put on a smaller set and apologize and open the PS3 back up. You don't wrong nerds and geeks and get away with it lol. It is funny they thought they could. Even against governments throughout history it is ultimately the people who win. Not to mention when the PS3 was allowed to be changed I know at least 20 friends who suddenly wanted one. Then when it was denied they changed their mind and didn't buy one or any of the games they wanted to buy with it. Seems to me if they hadn't grilled the issue their sales would have went up. haha
