After PSN Back Up, Your First Game?

By Jamie Pert - Apr 28, 2011

There is still a lot of mystery surrounding the PlayStation Network and when it will be back online, therefore we thought we would get some feedback from your readers regarding which games they are missing and which games they will play first when Sony announce the PSN back up.

We imagine that a lot of PS3 gamers will be purchasing Portal 2 when the PSN comes back online as a day after its launch the network went down, likewise the same happened with Mortal Kombat 9, therefore people are eager to get their hands-on both highly anticipated titles.

In terms of established popular online games we are sure that Killzone 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 gamers are eager to get back online and rank up, also recent releases like Bulletstorm and Homefront will be popular as gamers were probably just getting used to online play before the outage.

Obviously there are lots of other games which people will be missing, sports titles like Fight Night: Champion, FIFA 11, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 will all still be pretty popular, likewise music titles like Rock Band and Guitar Hero are popular online to.

We would love some feedback from our readers, therefore feel free to answer any of the following questions: What will be the first game you play when the PSN is back up? Which game have you missed the most? Which game will you be purchasing from the PSN Store? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Honestly people Black Ops is the game you choose… I'd rather take a massive dump and poke a stick in it for hours rather than play that pathetic excuse for a FPS. Get real and get Battlefield.

  • SparkPlug

    How can Sony go back online with the root key compromised? I’ll tell ya how… they can’t! Click on the two links and read all about it below.

  • PRAY_4_WAR

    I'm not playing a game 1st. The 1st thing I'm doing is emailing Sony again, and telling them how garbage they are. And letting them know my emails aren't going to stop just because they "fixed" the problem. This is 100% Sony's fault. It was their servers that got hacked into because of their joke encryption and/or security. Sony is trash, and I can't wait untill the new systems come out, I'm switching to X-Box, and I pray many more follow. They HAVE to be punished, and the only way to punish a multi-million dollar company is to hit them in their pockets. I was a 15 year customer, spent thousands of dollars over the years on Sony games and equipment. This is how I'm thanked? **** Sony!

    • Paul

      And im sure Sony will have it set up so your email and anyone else who emails Sony to complain about this goes straight to the deleted folder.

      Seriously stop moaning about how the shoyuld have prevented this, if someone can take a laptop to an internet cafe and hack the Pentagon then someone can easily hack the Playstation Network. Fact is it has happened and Sony know how serious it it, there are 77million world wide accounts which have been affected.

      Sony are making the network secure and getting it back online. The only thing we can do is wait.

PSN ID: BenjyIsAwesome97

  • Maxim786

    I want to get started with CODbo Zombies with my friends online. I have been following all the updates regarding PSN outage but never left a comment simply because its only going to winde me up even more so I m just waiting for Sony to finish the job which should have been foolproof and up to the current security standards in the first place but never mind. Keep up the good work Sony and It’s team. Well I have been enjoying my life as usual same as before. Patience is a virtue my friends.
