The longer this goes on the more damage I fear is being done to the brand. After all the progress Sony has made with customers, developers & publishers, all that may end up slipping backwards. I'm still loyal to the system mostly because online still isn't a big thing or a selling point for me, but I doubt the avid Call of Duty player feels the same way.

UK PS3 Users trading in PS3's for Cash or Xbox 360's.

Looks like some people are getting tired of waiting. :(

This has been happening since a week after network went down. People told me at work that they were trading in their PS3 because Sony lost their data pretty much as soon as it became public knowledge. Over time people have seemed to just get tired of not having an online service.

We've pretty much sold out of 360s. We're selling them as we buy them day to day, and selling pretty much no PS3s. People want to play online, especially the games that have come out since it went down such as Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat. A lot of people with Playstations have been asking for co-operative games (of which I've realised there are pretty much none - Resi 5 and sports games). I work for CEX by the way.

The thing is the current console generation has got very cheap, and it's easy for people to drop one and buy another, especially if you have a PS3, you can straight swap a PS3 for a Wii or a 360 AND get change. I can't blame them to be honest but personally I won't be ditching mine.

PS3 System Software Update

+ Posted by Eric Lempel // VP, Sony Network Entertainment

We have been working on a new PS3 system software update that requires all PSN users to change their password once PlayStation Network is restored. The update (v3.61) is mandatory and will available soon.

If using a PS3, your password can only be changed on your own PS3 (or a PS3 on which your PSN account was activated), as an added layer of security. If you have never downloaded any content using your account on the system, an email will be sent to the registered sign-in ID (email address) associated with your account when you first attempt to sign-in to PSN. This e-mail will contain a link that will enable you to change your password. In this email, click on the link and follow the instructions to change your password. Once you have changed your password you can sign-in to your account using your new password.

We strongly recommend that all PSN account holders with PS3s update their systems to prepare for when PlayStation Network is back online. The release of this update is a critical step as we work to make PlayStation Network significantly more secure. Thank you for your continued support and patience.
