In light of today's error, where I can still go online, but can't connect to the PSN, and a recent scheduled maintenance that seemed to take like six hours or more, I'd like to know if there's a way I can just play the games, get into Netflix/Amazon, etc. without being required to sign in to the PSN. Really, is it necessary? I can see if I select an option that takes me to the Playstation Store, but requiring sign in to use almost all online media is ridiculous. Good thing I've got offline movies and stuff, otherwise the machine is bricked when the PSN goes down.
