I'm not one to throw stones at service outages -- computer systems will have problems from time to time -- but when I fired up my PS3 for the first time in a week to check the Store and play online and found myself kicked off the PSN repeatedly I was miffed. For VoodooExtreme it's downright ugly: PSN Goes Down like a $10 Whore. Yikes.
The PS Blog today reiterated that yes, they are still having service problems and no, they don't yet know when it'll be back to normal. They even went so far as to say it may be a full day or two.
Am I totally wrong in thinking their integration with Steam for the launch of Portal 2 might in some way have caused this little snafu? Microsoft may be sitting off in their tall green tower smiling smugly at Sony being so eager to connect to those heathen, unwashed PC Steam gamers... who are totally cool if they want to pre-purchase Fable III on Steam, you know.
