The PlayStation Network is still down, and Sony isn't giving the press or customers any idea of when we can expect to play online. While this doesn't make the gamers happy, the only thing we have on the line is the cost of the games and our time. For third-party developers it's a matter of business, and selling games that rely on online support on a system where the online play has been disabled is an uphill battle.
Third-party publishers are losing out, and it's hurting their bottom lines. Would they have a case against Sony?
