PSN down for unknown reasons, Sony investigating

If you tried to fire up your PS3 and go onto the PSN last night and today, you have undoubtedly noticed that the network is down.

Then sign up for PSN+ -- no ifs, ands, or buts about it. It may have not been a big deal to everyone, but there's always a few people out there that don't want to pay extra for something they're already going to have to pay for.

Hulu Plus on PS3 Could Mean Mandatory Subscription to PSN+

Yesterday, Hulu made waves with the announcement of the much-rumored Hulu Plus. A brand new subscription-based methodology to stream your favorite TV shows, whenever you want. For just $9.99 per month, you'll get your hands on the "Season Ticket," which will let you watch any episode of a particular season, with no expiration date (which is the general rule of thumb on Hulu right now).
