Despite this mess, it appears most PSN users will continue to place their faith in Sony.
While it's plain that we are a PlayStation-oriented site, we have a great many readers who remained educated and opinionated on the subject; this isn't about blind loyalty.
It seems most are discerning and are capable of discarding the sensationalistic headlines and inaccurate, panic-inducing articles from so-called "journalists" who only sought to nab some extra traffic. We've tried to keep you updated and informed on a daily basis; we told you as soon as Sony confirmed a security breach, and we called out Sony for staying quiet for too long. But we did what we could to filter out the stupidity and as a result, educated PSN followers appear ready and willing to return to the Network.
This week, we want to contrast that data with the amount of time you normally spend on the Network (playing games, Store, Netflix, Qriocity, etc.). In other words, this will give us a better idea of how forgiving you are: if you only play a couple hours per week on the PSN, it's easier to forgive Sony, isn't it? If you're really suffering from online deprivation, though, can you still be patient and return to the Network without any grudges? What do you say?
