SOE Still Down, Will Be For A While
Nobody is more fed up with the breach of the PSN than MMO gamers. That is because Sonyís MMO unit, SOE, has also been brought down as a result of the compromise of its sister network.
Nobody is more fed up with the breach of the PSN than MMO gamers. That is because Sony’s MMO unit, SOE, has also been brought down as a result of the compromise of its sister network. That has meant no MMO fixed for millions of gamers, and those users are getting a bit fed up with the whole situation.
Sony today revealed that gamers will have to hold on a little longer, as SOE will be down for at least a few more days. However, the company also said it would be rolling out compensation packages for affected users.
• DC Universe Online: Batman and Two-Face masks, plus 30 Marks of Distinction
• Free Realms: seven free daily items
• Clone Wars Adventures: Count Dooku V2 outfit
• EverQuest 1: double XP, double rare mob spawns and double faction gain events
• EverQuest 2: double XP, double guild XP, loot bonanza and city festival events
• Vanguard: Saga of Heroes: double XP events
• Star Wars Galaxies: mini model of BobaFett's ship Slave I
• Magic: The Gathering - Tactics: four Ivory Mask, Duress and Angelheart Vial spells, plus 500 Station Cash
• PoxNora: Limited edition Carrionling, Welcome Back tournaments (with 5K prize purse) and two Draft Tournaments, plus 500 Station Cash
All of this is very nice, but exactly how many people will have left SOE games completely because of the downtime? Only time will tell.
