    PSN is awesome but I like live better. Its so fluid and the next update is gonna make it even better. 50 bucks is really not that much to pay. You can always find deals to get it cheaper.

    psn does the same as live. there are extra features with live, but its basically the same. it lets you play online with other users.

    the box/ferrari analogy is a terrible one.
    You must have not payed much attention, then. The original poster remarked about how free is always better. The analogy I posted works perfectly with that logic. Don't make silly posts.

    Anyways, XBox Live is above PSN. That's pretty much a fact at this moment.
    This.^^

    Also Live has a sense of community that PSN doesn't have. With Live I always feel connected to my friends while PSN feels cold and barren.

    Glad to see you like Playstation Network again, my friend. I've never even used Xbox Live, so really I haven't any right comparing the two other than from what I've heard.

    The Playstation Network has definitely gone through some improvements over time. And from what I have heard is beginning to surpass Xbox Live in many ways.

    It's always good to hear people getting back into the Playstation Network. You mind if I send you a friend request, mate?

    PSN has come a long way and has gotten much better over time. I like it a lot. It's easy to find what your looking for, it functions smoothly. I think the video section is pretty cool as well.

    PSN has improved but it doesn't really compete with Live in the same way (on the same scale). It still leaves much to be desired but PSN is free and Live isn't hence why people like Coolguy think it's better.

    Why he seemingly abandoned free PSN when he used to like his XBOX is beyond me but different strokes for different folks.

    Free is good, but like in many things, the better services cost $.

    XBL is better than PSN but the fact the PSN allows you to play your games as they were intended without a fee seals the deal for me.

    I've not paid for the XBL subscription since I got my PS3 and doubt I ever will again.
    Oh i totally agree with that, it's a whole different topic though really. I think Live is worth maybe $25-$30 dollars a year max now. I mean all we're really paying for is the cross game/party chat system. I'm one who can live without that but i just enjoy the overall organized feel and look to Live. I really like PSN too though. For people to say PSN is light years behind Live anymore is just not logical at this point.

    I dont have live, but online gaming wise im getting my fix with psn. And in some cases more, because some of my games of choice are the big chaotic battles so far only seen on psn (console wise).

    Cross game chat i could live with out i bought my mic so i can talk to the people playing the same game i am, how am i going to call in airsupport in warhawk.

    yes he says free is better however he was in fact talking about sumthing that does the online serivce thing, altho not stating that he implied it for all of us to understand where as a cardboard box with wheels would look like a kids toy
    i see nothing wrong with the post he sent

    I hear this kind of dismissiveness of cross-game chat a lot, but really the difference between in-game chat and cross-game chat is a lot like the difference between land-lines and cellphones.

    The point you make is a lot like saying "why would I want to be able to call people on the phone when one of us is outside, doing stuff?"

    Live has more features. There's nothing to debate and I don't even know why this topic is here.

    Anything else that makes it better for your situation is just the people you know.

    The next update (releasing tonight?) touches up Live and the one in November/December will just widen the gap that much more. Although there is a rumored PSN overhaul, version 3.0 or something, probably just a rumor but it's making the rounds.

    Follow the posting history the last 3 weeks? He's probably got the RROD or his folks won't pay for his Live anymore.

    Someone over Live suggested he had a modded X360 and MS banned it.

    Thats because PSN doesn't have it and this is PS3 Forums. We heard the same kind of dismissiveness from sony fans about achievements and then when trophies came around suddenly it was the greatest thing ever. If PSN ever gets cross game chat these same people will back pedal on that too. Its the old we dont have it but 360 does so its lame syndrome.

    @A7MAD - I heard the same thing.

    yep, i <3 my playstation and psn! its the best! and its all free! i can't wait even for the price drop so my friends can even buy it since it will be cheaper... its soooo worth it... im sure ps3 will last so much longer then the xbox 360 (i know the xbox is old as it is... but the ps3 technology blows it away... it was made for the future just like the ps2 was!

    I already have two playstation 3s in my house. One in my room for myself and my brother has one in his room (we even upgraded it to 500gb!). we both play online together with games! i love my ps3... its one of the system i loved the most so far... you can just do so much with the ps3 these days...

    there are so many good game on the ps3 also..

    i love socom, ranchet and clank!, uncharted, psn exclusives including fat princess and the punisher!

    i cant wait for demon souls (only on ps3 ... xbox 360 users are gunna hate that one! the die hard fans might just buy one hehe!)
    im looking forward to so much the socom update... white knight chroincles.. omg... the list keeps going..

    killzone 2! omg i dont know but the online is just so fun and addiciting! i actually finally bought the bundle (i usually dont buy add ons either, only for the game i like the most)

    and im pretty sure (well hopeing) that cross game microphone chat is coming... which is another feature x360 doesnt have! :2gun:

    The features are the difference between PSN and XBL. You can't say "features aside," when the whole basis of comparing the two networks is based on which one has more/better features. That's like comparing a 10" SDTV to a 50" HDTV and saying that they're basically the same because you can watch TV shows on them. Sure, you can watch TV shows on both of them, but the quality is significantly better on one (HDTV) than the other (SDTV).

    Anyway, XBL is better. Although PSN is free, it doesn't offer a lot of the features XBL does.

    but i dont get how anything that xbl offers is gonna benefit me? i mean if sony charged even $20yr for psn and gave us what xbl has i dont know if i would pay for that other than the fact i would like to play online cus i dont see much need but btw what r the features? other than cross game chat

    im not dissing cross game chat if i could have any xbl feature this would have to be the one-that and i dont know any others
    as for trophies and achievements i didnt even know what achievements were at the time and when trophies came out with no support i was like wtf did this firmware do i got a folder that says trophies???

    I'm confused. The only thing I can derive from your post is that you're saying XBL only allows you to talk to one person at a time?

    idk how this would work with 48 ppl talking to u lus the game however
