    Is this for real?

    "We are still very sorry about PSN being down, because of this were not only giving away 2 free games, but we are giving $50 funds to your user if you send this to ALL your friends. From Playstation IT WORKS! Send this message to ALL of your friends. Once you have sent this message to all your friends - you will get $50 on your PSN."
    "Enter this code: I8PH-CIBD-RK2H ( after you send message to all)"


    This the exact message I just got sent from a friend on PSN. Is this sound really sus or what?

    Not this again....It's been a while since I've seen one of these.

    No, it's not real. I love how the message says "IT WORKS". That right there is a red flag.

    That's what I thought. It looked completely fake. I thought I'd bring it up to let others know.

    I like the fact it's a message apologising for the network being down being sent over the same very network. Hmmm. Didn't think that one through too hard.

    "Sorry that PSN is down.

    To make it up to you, we'll send this message over PSN to you, for you to forward to all your PSN friends to get a free $50 credit in the PSN store."

    Yep, that sounds completely legit.

    This shit has made several appearances since the big PSN hack.
    It turns up in my message box usually from the friend list of a friend in my list, if that makes any sense!
    The message heading is always the same or similar.

    Nope, chain mails are still commonplace. I got one the other day saying that it's Playstation's birthday and that I can get a free game from a selection of three; Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted 2 and LittleigPlanet.





    You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push

    all you gotta do is Grief Report them and Block them, simple.
    I still play Black Ops because me and brother have 2 PS3's and share a copy of Modern Warfare 3. So that is why I play it sometimes. Thats the *ONLY* time I play Black Ops! When brother is not playing MW3, I am!

    Seems legit :troll:
    No really.. Why would you even consider that being true? Nothing in the world is free, even if you send a message to all your friends in PSN xD

    If you enter that code your PS3 will actually explode. Quite literally that code sends a series of commands to the PS3's CELL processor which causes a small chain reaction in the secondary processing units sending them into a heat failure mode that causes them to seize then catch fire.

    I found out the hard way. It was ... ...
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.
