PS3 DLC: Affected by PlayStation Network Outage

By Peter Chubb - May 11, 2011

With all that has been going on with Sony, we thought it was about time we looked at the PS3 DLC titles affected by the PlayStation Network outage. We had hoped to see PSN back up by now, but it seems as though Sony keeps extending its estimates. On a lighter note though, we discussed earlier how this downtime is a good thing for the environment – not sure gamers care much about that at the moment.

Examiner says that two DLC games just missed out before PSN was hacked, along with another three still waiting. The five titles are as follows: Beyond Good & Evil, Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale, Gatling Gears, Hydrophobia: Prophecy and finally Outland – Ubisoft. However, ones that still might be missed are Streets of Rage 2 and Under Siege.

This outage is not good for gamers, but even worse for developers, as this is now hitting them hard. They feel that the long amount of time that the PlayStation Network has been down is now affecting profit. This could have a serious affect on Sony, one that could see developers start to jump ship.

Sony will have to start keeping us more informed, such as offer reasons why this is taking so long. PSN is rumored to be up either in the next few days or by the end of May. However, if it is delayed longer, then we could see a later release for the Escalation Map Pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops.

    and i would also like to know y its taking so long i mean psn is the only reason i have the internet, so i feel like im paying my internet service provider (ISP) for nothing this month huh. I had a lot of patience with sony at the beginning of this but now i feel like they r just toying with us. tell us it will be on at a certain time when u know the whole time that it won't i believe that's what you would call bad business sony. thats what frustrates me don't be lying give us the truth we deserve it its our information thats on the line sony not telling everything like wut is the problem they are a billion dollar company at least i think so this doesn't make sense at all.

    I have several Mortal Kombat DLC Codes for Additional Character costumes and Fatalities and add-ons however can't do anything with them until Sony gets their PSN back online. Which for a big as Sony is, it's pretty sad that they can't even give the gamers and community actual straight answers! LETS GO SONY!!!
