Sony may lose a significant portion of its subscribers. What happens is that when you have MMO interruptus for any length of time you perspective starts changing. You start to ask yourself things like: "Why did I spend 3 hours of my weekend leveling crafting so I could make a pair of uber-tennis shoes?"

You start to look at doing other things. Of course you can start playing another MMO and renew your addiction, albeit with another franchise. Even if you come back to the original MMO when it comes back up, you can get that feeling of you can't go home again.

Sony may have to spend some marketing dollars to make up for the people that don't come back or stop playing as often.

Good suggestions, Karen. :) Although I've been away from EQ2 for about two months, already, I was maintaining a very casual presence on EQ2X while working through the burn-out phase. ;) I've actually been replaying single player RPGs, working on website for housing game-related fan fiction, reading books (OMG), writing, and exploring some old hobbies I'd forgotten about. So even though those things were happening before the outage, it's driven home the point to me that there were things I enjoyed doing before I invested most of my free time into an MMO.
