This is complete BS Sony.
Not only do you now make people pay to play online now, but taking PSN (according to your guys on twitter) down for maintenance on Christmas frigging day is unacceptable.
What the **bleep** were you thinking?
That's fine for me, but for all the kids who got games for Christmas?
It's **bleep** at best. No doubt Sony won't give an explanation. Now that it's a paid service they should be held accountable for downtime.
This is what we get for the money paid. Services that are s**t because they have your money already, end of stroy. This will only end when WE the gamers stop giving away billions for crap. This is my first and last post on this site because I can't believe PS went pay to play. It's a sham how far they have fallin, not just Sony but the gaming industry as a whole, but when a 1 million mindless automatons to buy your product nothing else matters really money has been made and we reap what we have sown.
