The server went down April 20th. And is still down.
They started with 77 million accounts compromised. And now have added another 20 million accounts. That were hacked prior to the 20th.

In addition the FBI and Homeland Security is now involved.

I'm glad I never associated my creditcard with my account way back when...

I'd like to note, Xbox Live is still online and going strong wink...

Hardly, I use Netflix on Xbox everyday as our "entertainment"; if it would have been down, I'd have noticed... It hasn't been down for as long as I can recall tongue

Until MS pisses off someone and tries to lock the xbox up or tell their customers what they can and cant do with their purchased equipment. Sony's issue was their ego. I bet MS could be taken down just as quick and hard, when these companies feel they are cocky and can tell users what they can do after buying their product and violate rights thats where the problems starts.

For years these companies have people by the you know what, now people are fighting back. Just hope the CC numbers are not sold or used!

Have you not heard about them deactivating modded consoles? You can't mod the dvd drive, they will simply ban you from connecting; and sadly everyone is fine with it lol...

Dont follow xbox news but think I remember you telling me that. That is pretty much how this started. In PS3 you were able to install a linux. Sony locked that down without telling anyone, ok people were pissed but whatever. Than geohot jail broke it giving the access back so Sony took him to court and bullied him. There is what started the whole mess. With PSN you are locked out of the network if you don't agree not to mod the system and install an update that locks it more.

That's crazy man... That good of hardware and the fact you could install *nix on it was the only thing I enjoyed when I owned mine...

I had an account for Sony Online Entertainment's Star Wars Galaxies from 2005 to 2007. Sony emailed me and told me that my credit card information was compromised, once for each account (2). Glad I no longer have that card and have since switched banks.

As of this AM the server is still down.
The only good news is that I never provided a credit card for services.

From what I heard on the news, the only affected users were those who used cards several years ago.

Judging by the fact that David says he was contacted - Sony knew who were affected and contacted them.

(The last game I played was Doom2 shareware lol)

BTW, Doom is a excellent game!
I have it on 3.5 floppys.
Now if I could find Quake, I would be a happy camper

Not far from you there. The last one I played was Unreal with a Voodoo 3DFX PCI card installed. cool

There was also another one with a guy wearing glasses running round a deserted lab but I can't remember its name.

Gaming really doesn't appeal to me.

I'm not a gamer. I used to like Duke Nukem and Wolfenstein. I had several Flight Simulator variants, too. I don't even have a joystick now.
