I can't see the comic. Maybe it's private?

EDIT: Strange. If I go to http://cdn.themis-media.com/media/global/images/library/deriv/54/54795.jpg then I can see it fine, maybe firefox is just playing up.

I expect the Escapist to remove all profile fields asking for personal information or risk being labelled blatantly hypocritical.

You don't need to know my Real name, Location, OCCUPATION?!, Country, Birth date (excuse me?), Gender, ICQ/AIM/Yahoo/MSN/Skype, XBL/PSN/Steam/Wii/Xfire/Kongregate/Raptr, Twitter/Facebook/YouTube.. etc etc etc.

Don't even ask.

You're setting yourselves up for the same fall mi amigos.

HAHA very funny. But shame on you kicking us ps3 users when we're down, still funny though.

Also apprantely the psn will be back up on the 3rd May, so silver lining an all.

They get that stuff so gamers can interact, also, there is no reason for hackers to steal that info, they attacked sony to ether hurt them, or get credit card info.

Oh yeah, thats right. Those capcom games use the always online DRM.

From a PC gamer to any PS3 owner who can't play their legally bought games... welcome to our world. And I totally know how your feeling.

Majority of that information?

Optional.


I mean really, who even has an ICQ number anymore?


OT: I am really waiting for how Sony plans on gaining reputation back in the gamer world after this huge of a fuck-up.

Might be after their next console, I know if the 360 had something of this magnitude, I wouldn't stay with it even after "everything is fixed".

On the topic of not getting their games...
I have several steam friends who bought the PS3 version of Portal 2 since they got both PS3 and PC and/or they don't have credit card to pay online.

So no co-op with them until PSN is back again =/

OT: Funny comic yet again Shamus ;)

None of that information is mandatory. So you only put it there if you want, and you know it's being publicly displayed, in fact that's the whole point of it. There's a significant difference to having your hidden info stolen.

I think all of that stuff is optional here, but yeah, other websites ask for a lot of shit they don't need. It would be nice if the Escapist could look at the birth data in my profile when determining whether it can start showing me a video, though. In fact, I think that would be far better "security" than making you select a new birth date every time you try to watch a video.

Also, I want a field where I can tell the Escapist that I'm not a robot, so I won't have to enter captchas anymore.

I wonder if Sony will try and get people back with massive discounts? That would be nice. I'd be happy with some nice discounts.

Mmmmmmnn... discounts...

That's Lair, not Skyrim.

OT: To be fair to your virtual Butler, you couldn't have chosen a less girl-like model for this comic, even if you'd co-opted Gordon Frohman.
