The PlayStation Network is back and hungry for users. The catch is that a new firmware is necessary to get back on.
Ok, people, please remain calm. There is no need to get panties in wads. Sony hasn’t actually come out and said that they’ll be charging $X.XX for subscriptions, but keep in mind that not only has there been proof from a Sony conference (see above), but two of their corporate officers have said as much.
Kaz Hirai had an interview the other day with Times Online in which he admitted that even with the reduced production costs and reduced form factor of the PlayStation 3 Slim, that the company is still not making any money on hardware sales.
Yup, we knew it, I think the world knew it, but it’s finally been confirmed by Kaz himself at GamesCom about 5 minutes ago. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the new PS3 slim. Can I get a wooo?
