How Sony Can Make it Up To You

When sweet baby Jesus was born, three wise men gave unto him three precious gifts -- gold, frankincense, and this episode of The Jimquisition about Sony's PSN debacle.

Watch Video

Okay Jim, this one was much better. I will give this series a chance after all. Hope the fourth one continues like this one -- not the previous two.

Less atrocious ranting, audio was more clear, and video looked better*.
The calmer speaking helped a lot as well.

Doesn't hurt that you have me agreeing with you either! Especially the endless updates...

*At least in the high quality version, the video is sandboxed with black bars on all sides.
//Edit: only the HQ version apparently so this is probably not your fault.
//Edit2: sandboxed issue fixed today. :)

Yes Tomba! or Tombi?

God damnit I haven't played that games in years.

I rather like that they're offering Identity Protection or are at least working towards it. Thats... really impressive.

Though I dont know good a Medievil Three would be good after all this time and that complete 180 the studio took in their game developments.

While I agree with the game choices(especially Tomba), I still say this is better suited as a podcast. Better than the previous ones though.

I love the sense of humor towards all the hate from people who don't seem to have enough common sense to just not watch if they don't like the series. I don't think I've ever laughed 5 seconds into a video before.

Tomba! That would be pretty sweet. I still have my PS1 version though, so I can play it right now if I want to. Mwahahahaha! It is a great game though, so if it does come on the PS Store someday, everyone who doesn't have a PS1 copy should buy it.

And yeah, less firmware updates! I wouldn't care if they didn't take so damn long to download and install, but for crying out loud Sony. Also, I love the XMB theme with a trollface for the System Update icon. If someone makes that theme for real, I'm downloading it.

But anyway, I'm already pretty happy with the identity theft protection/monitoring services they're offing us in the US. If they wanted to do that less firmware updates thing though, that could only make me happier.

I only see the same two black bars on the side that EVERY video has in the HQ version.

Huh.... well I'm pretty sure those three wouldn't solve all the problems, but at least the third would go some way to making amends.

I like this show, but it really needs to get a visual revamp. Alternating camera angles, better quality filming, etc.

Not sure if they would make everyone forgive Sony. Maybe a free PSN voucher would? Still, if Sony did them, I would forgive them (despite the fact that I do not care that PSN has been down for ages as I only play single player games on the PS3 mainly).

It made me smile, that's good enough for me.

This one was much better in my opinion, loved that jab in the first few seconds of the video. I'd love a Toomba for the PS3 and I don't even own one, I could watch a Let's Play for some vicarious nostalgia.

I do not own a PS3, so I can not say what I would need for Sony if this had happened to me. I do know that I would have bought some games off of PSN, labeling me for identity theft and credit card faud, but I still have no idea of how I would actually get. In terms of making it up for me, I can't say.

However I can offer two perspectives, one as someone who works in retail, and one as a potential customer.

Sony is going to have to work hard to build it's image up. This has gone beyond the playstation brand, and has gone to effect my ability to sell ANY Sony electronic device. This has been a disaster for Sony that even more older clients at my Rent-to-own store are aware, if misinformed about.

As a potential customer who is mostly indifferent about this whole incident, Sony should follow what many other companies, such as Capcom, are doing to reengage their image within their community. Become more involved in your community across the globe. Even if you can't provide them with Legend of the Dragoon 2, don't go quiet. Tell them why, let them know what's going on. Having a community manager like Seth Killian on the floor really does a ton to help your image on multiple fronts. Sony lacks this, and it is hurting them.

Huh. This series has saved itself from the brink of death. Good work!

The first episode was just...Godawful.
The second episode was okay. Nothing special, but okay.
This episode was actually entertaining. You know what Jim, if you keep this up, im going to become a regular on this show!

Not like i matter, though.

You mentioned Tomabi and the Medevil series
I am now a regular watcher

This episode was marginally better than the last two. Plus 1.

Thats how I feel, this was a last chance video for me and it was good enough to watch the forth. Giving up on the piracy battle and stoping with the constant updates would be a god send.

Looks like this to me:

Sandboxed. Bars on top and bottom remain even if I blow it up to fullscreen (userJS), doesn't happen for the other vids here. Shall try the Flash copy.
//Edit: Flash doesn't have the top and bottom bars.

Thank FSM for Jim!

Its more entertaining that lurking these forums. As long as it stays that way, Ill keep watching. Keep it coming jim!

Huh, good one, I guess... I hope you do better next time, Jim, as this episode changed my opinion about you and your show ;) With Medievil, I TOOOOOOTALLY agree... I still play that one with the psx emulator, and for those of you, who have old ps1 titles but dont have the system, I suggest do the same!!!!! (try ePSXe, 'tis the best!!)

Either that or just give out fruit baskets...by which I mean baskets containing fruits, not that crap anime...[shudder]

Or heck, I'd settle for 3 strippers and a cake, I'm easy either way Sony...

That was much better than the first two episodes. Glad to see your at least improving the show a bit.

Back on topic, thank you for reminding me of Tomba, awesome game I absolutely forgot about.

I honestly doubt sony can make up for the damage that was done to its image because of this fiasco.

I want Medieval 3 more than I want to become part of the mile high club... with Kiera Knightley... and Gemma Arterton... at the same time!

Three strikes, you're outta there.

Sorry Jim, but you're just not interesting. At least when you were a ranting madman you were watchable in the way that a train wreck is watchable, but the last two episodes have just been boring, bland, run of the mill, average. Points I've been hearing for weeks being rehashed in five minutes.

To the Escapist editors, I await the return of Lisa Foiles with baited breath, but at least this show isn't hosted by a gibbering moron anymore. I will not be partaking further, but good luck to those who do.

Needs more Suikoden.

This is pretty much how I felt about this one.

In general though, I still don't like Jim's chest-thumping egotism, because it's not balanced at all with the slightest subtle hint of self-deprecation.

I liked the show, but none of those things would make me happy.

Haha, they see him trolling...

One can't help but think that arrogance is real. I'm sure that such a persona is going to be exaggerated online for "comedic" effect however I can't help but think he's really like this. And it just makes the whole thing a bit irritating to watch, kudos on the two games mentions though.

I guess the fact that there was less scrotum is a plus, still boring as fuck. And like game dogs and porn stars playing DnD I will never watch you again. goodbye

PS: no its not just you, there have been plenty of failed shows on here your first one was just more notably crappy then most. But there are several succesful shows as well, not just austrailian guy with dick jokes.

I must congragulate the Jimquisition for saying something logical for once. Fuck. Those. Firmware. Updates.

Parappa the Rappa for the PSN please! That game was my guilty pleasure back in the day ...

And freebies! Loads and loads of freebies! GOOD freebies too, not the shitty ones that aren't even worth the freeness ....

(Although to be honest, I was never really agree at Sony to begin with. Shit happens. At least they took care of it.)

PS -- I liked that personal jab you took at yourself there Jim. Very big of you. As well as funny.

First few shows were annoying as shit, all i could think of was "this kills me to watch...."

This one just made me think, "what does this have to do with anything.....damn i hate this guy".

Good luck fitting all of you into the 1x1 that constitutes an airplane bathroom.

The Medievil 3 thing would be nice, because I was just about to go buy the old one on PSN when it was brought down. But that is just my opinion. They don't really owe us anything, and if anyone does, it is the prick hackers that took it down.
