I had planned to gift my son a digital game yesterday, which was a no-go. I was hoping they'd be up and running by now. I guess I'll have him pick one out at Gamestop when we go down that way next week.

I act my age sometimes. Sometimes ;). Crap I say

Yeah, now I'm frustrated.

Lizard Squad twitter says they stopped at 8:00pm EST yesterday and downtime is the aftermath. Well come on, how can simple DDoS attack keep equipement down? When the attack is over it's over.

Well...couple wildass guesses. Either Sony took a bunch of hardware offline and has to spool it all up or possibly some items buckled under the storm and need to be found and replaced.

Meh, went and got Lords of the Fallen to get through.

Sony shut down there servers. According to Anonymous they were getting hit with 60,000 Ddos attacks a minute . Anonymous is trying to help kill these attacks and help Sony out. FinestSquad has been taking credit for Anonymous work and Anonymous believes FinestSquad is lizard squad. FinestSquad is actually taking donations. I've been following most of this on Twitter. They could make a movie out of this stuff lol.

Question on playing PS4 with two couch players.

Hi, I'm new to gaming and just got a PS4 to play with my son. I have the following games:

Need for Speed Rivals
Lego Batman #
Lego Marvel Super Heroes
Disney Infinity

Can these games be played with two side-by-side players? I have two controllers but don't have a clue about how to play games together with my son. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I don't play any of those games but I just wanted to say...Kudos to you. Sitting on a couch side by side with another gamer is what gaming is all about...not connecting to some server and playing with someone you've never met before. I truly wish gaming would go back to that state. It was 10x more fun then. Nowadays people want to boast that they are number such n such in the world on some leaderboard. Who cares.

I'm pretty sure you can on the Lego games. Another good couch co-op game you can get for cheap is Knack.

There should be an option for local co-op in the menues. You're better asking this in the gaming section. This is the subwoofer forum.

Why does MS seem to always recover quicker then Sony? I know hackers were to blame for this but Sony just seems to lack the knowledge and skills required to run a decent network.

I spent the money that I was going to use to buy Alien Isolation today. Bought a few more things for my daughter, which was probably a better use for it anyway. Point is, Sony lost a sale because of this, they need to get their act together.

Microsoft has an entire enterprise division dedicated to networks like Xbox Live, it is no wonder they can recover faster, they have more people tools and experience dealing with these things.

DDoS attacks aren't as simple as once done things return to normal. Damage can be done, from software being screwed up to hardware literally melting if the load is big enough. Plus, there is always the risk of a DDoS attack being a front for a true hack, like data theft. Sony is probably giving everything a once over if the attacks have truly stopped. (No proof they have, all these twitter accounts read like they are the same guy)

A reminder, don't post anything from the twitters of any of these "hackers" as doxxing is now happening whether they are real or not. Best to avoid the legal and moral issues it brings up all together.

Also remember the network stuff in the paths leading to PSN may be wiped out as well and Sony doesn't have control of that. Microsoft also hosts its own like Pen says vs Sony outsourcing and outsourcing sucks to deal with because they may have other priorities. Sure Sony could beef things up a bit but its not their fault some aholes wanted to soil xmas.

Nothing like that. Basically a few hacker groups are fighting it out and are potentially releasing member data. No threat to us but posting some random hacker kids home address just invites trouble on many levels.

Edit: hackers are giving out other hackers info in case my explanation sucked, which it did. It's not guaranteed correct info and even if it is posting that info here probably violates tos. Basically Pen is just warning us not to put their home address in this forum. I'd agree if for no other reason than backlash.

I'm not at all surprised to see PSN is still screwed given their track record, but I was a little surprised to see it took MS as long as it did to recover. So lame though, wtf kind of hacker attacks gamers on xmas?

I know we all had our reasons for choosing the PS4, but I'm starting to wonder if I discounted exactly what MS gives you w/ a Live membership. This outage is getting a tad ridiculous.

Yes this whole episode has me doubting my choice of the PS4. When it works I like it and is plays the games fine but this outage is really annoying. I understand that the initial reason for the outage isn't Sony's fault, instead the fault of a bunch of losers with too much time on their hands, but the fact that Microsoft is back up and running so quickly makes Sony look incompetent. The more I've sat and thought of it the more I think that I miss the Xbox interface. The PS4 interface gets the job done but (probably because I spent so many years with xbox) the XBox interface feels so much more comfortable.

Sony would be wise to take this stuff extra serious. With thier hack years ago and with the whole "The Interview" debacle and hacking there they seem to be a repeated victim. It's likely a consequence of them just being the right victim. Large enough to matter but not so large like an Google or Amazon that network security would be better.

Anyone working for a large company is going to see strengthened network security in the coming years. It's probably going to get to the point of hindering ability to actually work.
