    PSN outage may last ‘a full day or two’

    If you tried to log into Steam for some cross-platform Portal 2 last night, or if you were getting ready to play some SOCOM 4 or Mortal Kombat online with friends…well, you probably ran into a bit of difficulty.

Execs do seem pleased by the rather strange coupling: “Experienced air travelers know the value of portable entertainment,” said Charlie Scibetta, Nintendo of America’s senior director of Corporate Communications. “By teaming with JetBlue to bring Nintendo 3DS demo stations into JFK airport, we will give consumers an especially fun way to pass the time while they wait to board their flights.” Terminal 5 at JFK already features over 40 food and retail outlets.
