Games There's fail, there's epic fail, and then there's Sony. You may've thought it wasn't possible, but Sony has just outdone itself on the fail scale, forcing us to add yet another notch. During the congressional testimony this morning, Dr Gene Spafford of Purdue University revealed just how badly Sony managed its Playstation Network servers. It's... Bad.

I was talking this over with one of my friends (while completing Dead Center in L4D2 on expert in 58 minutes), and we both agreed that this could very well have a MASSIVE negative impact on Sony's next console. Trust is completely gone now, and for once, this is not something only geeks talk about - this has hit ALL PS3 users. For now, XBL is still doing just fine (and I'm sure it's being probed like hell now), so it might as well be that the next time these people buy a console, they're going for the competition.

This is very, very, very bad for Sony.
