Yeah. I don't remember the last actual outage. Psn suffers it more.

Your network issues on Xbox for parties and servers is 90% solveable by you and your router.

Guys Overdrive was joking. Cracked me up so I went along with it because Sony had the Twitter hack in the same week (¬‿¬)

Everyone already knows PSN has the issues. There's an article about it every 2nd week.
I was originally going to copy and paste his comment.
