While the console wars rage on, no matter which side you’re on (no, really, even fanboys must admit), the PSN Outage is an open wound, ready to be attacked by any opposing side.
But for just a moment, Xbox 360 fanboys’ pants filled up this morning as the Xbox Live service was taken down. Were credit cards at risk? Was your personal information about to be peeked at by guys who can only be described as “moderately sweaty” by your worst nightmares? Were Sony fanboys about to shove every taunt and gesture right back down your throat?
Apparently not. The outage was due to personal error and the service is already back up and running.
Eric Neustadter of Microsoft had this to say about the shutdown…
“The root cause of this outage was human error. a change resulted in an interruption to normal traffic flow within our datacenters, which logged users out and prevented them from logging back in. We’re sorry for this, and we’ll be updating our processes to prevent this from happening again in the future.”
No fodder has been given to either side of the debate in this, except for maybe a few of the more push-and-shove-y Microsoft fans who will unfailingly bring up that their outage only lasted one morning.
The information should be taken impartially and without bias, as now everyone is free to play online and it shouldn’t matter what console we use, what matters is what’s in our hearts.
And, of course, which game is better? Call of Duty or Battlefield? There’s no mercy in that war.The Xbox Live Outage Isn't Anything To Worry About,
