It may cost money. But at least their servers aren't down half the time.
If people struggle to entertain themselves without online gaming for a matter of hours there is a much bigger problem in your life than some servers being down.
So I wake up today expecting that they've fixed it. It's still not working.
Why were you execting it to be fixed when Sony clearly said it could be 2 days?
How reassuring to read that they don't know why their own network is down. Bank holiday weekend, lots of people at home and they take the network offline. Superb timing.
