You mean games that require online to play XD

To be fair, almost all games on PS4, baring ISS and TLOU, are mainly multiplayer. And also to be fair, Starcraft and Diablo's campaign's, and DOTA and LoL vs bots is playable offline too.

That's not even remotely true.

To anyone that is wondering.. "In light of today’s issue, the networks will not undergo the regularly scheduled maintenance, which was planned for Monday, August 25. We will provide an update shortly for when the maintenance will be rescheduled."

What else is there? BF4, Sports games, COD, FF14:RR, KZ, ect are all played for multiplayer. Everyone's already finished AC4, Tomb Raider, Watch Dogs, and other big multiplats. What's left? Transistor and Child of Light?

Are you serious? I think you are joking but I don't understand why. Maybe it's a language barrier? As in, you meant to say something else but English isn't your native language? I get the impression you don't own a PS4, but post a lot about the machine. Perhaps like many users, you post a lot about the machines, not based on experience, but selected articles you cite? I agree with Starcraft and Diablo, I own those on PC. Great games both in Singleplayer and Multiplayer. I actually own multiple copies of both games.

My issue is that you (inaccurately) said:

"almost all games on PS4, baring ISS and TLOU, are mainly multiplayer"

You said almost all games on PS4 were mainly MP and that's not true.

I hate to use wiki (since it's heavily modified by randoms daily), it will give some sort of list for now (317 PS4 games listed on that page for now). I will tell you that Sony gave PS+ gamers 14 free PS+ games and I have all of those as I bought a launch PS4 (as well as Xbone/Wii U) to compliment my four gaming PCs and these PS+ free games weren't mainly multiplayer either.

I'm not sure if you are just trolling and like these sort of debates? I hope not. I wanted to correct what you posted. I didn't even list all the sports and various other games released from Diablo 3 to Child of Light to Transistor to PT teaser to Metal Gear to Assassin's Creed to Lego Marvel to Injustice to Watch Dogs to Wolfenstein to Dynasty Warriors....and many, many more. Just go into a gamestore and look on the wall. The PS4's library isn't "mainly multiplayer". It's true, MP is in a lot of games, but there are plenty of SP games on the machine.

Of course Nintendo are ahead of Microsoft and Sony when it comes to anything to do with gaming. They actually look out for gamers, not coming up with worthless subscriptions.

You told me to not bend facts in another thread and here you are assuming that everyone has finished most if not all single player games on the PS4 and posing it as fact.

I have yet to finish any of them aside from COD and Infamous.

Some ppl just take their time playing their games or don't have the time to play non stop and some ppl just bought their PS4.

They've had years to fix their security flaws and still can't. It's pathetic. Sony is a multinational conglomerate and they can't even secure their beloved online platform against an amateurish hacking group.

Few games were online only on PS3 on 2011,Warhawk and very other few.

Sony was sued and nothing happen.

People could not play 3 weeks in 2011 big deal they could not play online on a free service,now what the fu** did you lemmings play when the xbox 360 RROD and was 1 month out at MS repair centers.?

At least we could play offline,which i could say the same about the millions of 360 owners who RROD at any given time,sh** happen get over it..

It lasted 1 days is already fix and PSN is up..

"Additionally, Xbox One users, are you experiencing server unavailability issues? Us too, but we’re working alongside our partner to get these issues fixed ASAP!"

Its not the blizzard servers...Its the servers on MS and Sony's end. MS just switch the server status to limited because of the attacks.

People can play right now on PSN too. PSN got definitely got hit worse but both services have been spotty all weekend. Today is the worst day that is for sure. DDOS is just flooding the login servers and then everything else takes a hit afterwards.

I wish they would just stop.

SAN FRANCISCO/TOKYO - Sony Corp (6758.T) said hackers had taken down its PlayStation Network without compromising its 53 million users' personal data, while the FBI was investigating a bomb scare on a flight carrying a top Sony executive in the United States.

The hackers behind the PlayStation attack said they had also targeted the servers of World of Warcraft video gamemakers Blizzard Entertainment, whose website was down, and threatened to attack Microsoft Corp's (MSFT.O) Xbox Live network which was also experiencing problems.

It won't be, in all honesty. A DDoS isn't a hack in the literal sense of the word. All they are doing is flooding the datacenters or servers with a bunch of traffic that it can't account for. Denial of Service is literally just that. You don't have to log on or root anything on a network to do it, just simply have a number of compromised systems on a botnet out on the old interwebs sending traffic to the DNS servers or the IP addresses of the servers so that actual legitimate (user) traffic gets squeezed out.

It's only a matter of time before the authorities figure out the nature of the botnet. Blocking the traffic isn't as effective as unplugging the servers doing it. Live seems to be doing alright because it is simply a bigger network than the botnet causing the attacks. As such, the traffic is being rendered benign. There's no secret magic trick to it.

Although there is a response to your post, I have an even better counter question that's slightly off topic.

You constantly praise the PS4 for having so many amazing games and exclusives better than any other platform. I'd assume you'd spent hours on end, at least finishing a few of the classics like TLOU and some shorter but decent indies. Yet, all you've finished is Infamous and fucking COD. Fucking COD. Who finishes, or even starts for that matter, COD.

I just saw this news on NBC Today show and they only mentioned Playstation Network. I don't think main stream media would have mention this if they didn't do that bomb scare on the Sony Online Entertainment president. PSN is under maintenance now but I believe this maintenance was planned before the attack. Hopefully they'll fix these problems too on top of the problems they were originally planning to fix.

People buy games they see value in. For instance I don't buy Call of Duty anymore yet it's the top grossing game year in, year out. The $60 for COD is better spent on a XBL or PS+ subscription.

The whole point of the analogy was was people will spend their money how they see fit. I see value in PS+ so I pay for it, although I didn't buy it until February.

you do realize that limited doesn't mean its down.

At least we could play offline,which i could say the same about the millions of 360 owners who RROD at any given time,sh** happen get over it..

Wrong, SONY was fined for the PSN breach

http://www.wablegal.com/e-bulletins/sony-fined-%C2%A3250000-ico-playstation-network-breach

250,000 by ICO

and the have abandoned appealing against it

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-23313535

'Sony has dropped its appeal against a £250,000 penalty imposed after its PlayStation Network was hacked in 2011.

The UK Information Commissioner's Office imposed the fine in January, finding Sony negligent for failing to protect PSN users whose login and credit card details had been leaked.'

Britain was one of the only Countrys to, quite rightly, make SONY pay for there inept online security.

you do realize that limited doesn't mean its down. They put it in limited if it isn't 100% the PBS app had issues and they put it in limited until PBS fixed their app. They also put it in limited because blizzard went down and it affected diablo 3 but still had nothing to do with XBL itself. They do that so people know there is an issue with something, but it isn't always MS or XBL related

It has problems period.

'PSN had a hack in 2011 yet it was xbox live who suffer constant credit card losses all gen last gen. lol'

Not to the tune of 77 million dude.

'It has problems period.'

Not as many Problems as PSN has

It's not even debatable,SONY suffered far more from this DDOS attack than XBL did

Straight from the horses mouth

'Props to MS for giving us a challenge, good job. SONY, smh (shaking my head)'

Says it all really,lol

FUD.

Safety = FUD?

You do realize there is History here?

If we want to judge products on company history, then the XBox OS and network would have more holes than swiss cheese. For whatever faults these two companies and products have, it's because mistakes were made and learned from. Let's not play this game.
