    How Xbox Live is blatantly better than PSN (humorous article)

    Definitley a tongue in cheek article. Obviously not meant to be taken seriously. http://www.destructoid.com/how-xbox-...n-233346.phtml

    Eh, because Microsoft forces you to pay for their service to play online. They can suck it. PSN is better.

    I've never understood this debate. Anyone can see that XBL is the better service, tongue in cheek or not.

    I agree. I use both services and Live is leagues better. And I hardly pay anything because I always find big discounts.

    Live has always been better, and knowing MS it probably always will be. PSN will always be playing catch up in that area.

    It's funny how they always assume that you haven't used Live, they always do.

    It's really not. Sony needs improve the usability of the PS store. I only go there because of content -- and that's the important part. But making it easier to use and navigate will get more people to that content easily which should mean more sales.

    I didn't assume he hasn't used Xbox Live. I KNOW he hasn't seen the benefit of the features online play, the OS, and the games, come with being on the 360. That is the issue. Not whether he has actually played online with the 360.

    PSN is fine, but it is just that. Fine.

    I'll take the simple benefits of XBL over PSN any day of the week. X-Game chat and piss easy invite system with friends.

    It wasn't even close to humorous. I felt like the writer was trying too hard.

    Used it, for 2 years.

    Nothing at all, seriously, made me even think it was better than the PSN.

    I just like and prefer the simplicity and easy to use playstation XMB and connection wise they are both very similar. I dont use cross chat so that is pointless to me and all the "services" it provides are either available on the ps3 or the PC.

    Only reason why it's so popular is because you have to have gold in order to play on-line. I would bet £20 that if the online play was free ( only needed silver account) that at least 70% of people who have gold would not keep it. MS are one of my most disliked companies. They give me that image of a money greedy business that would leave/forget their user-base in order to cater to other people ( in other words telling their previous users to either accept the new changes or **** off)

    Look at windows 8, look at the new XB interface ( kinect focused), look at how the hardcore games are literally just sequels of previous games, no intention of making anything new...


    I wouldn't be surprised if the next xbox was mainly targeted to casual family gamers.

    Sorry, but post sounds like:


    With the latest fall beta xbox live just proved its superiority even more with a better web browser than PSN has. That and many other things set them apart.

    Better web browser?

    TBH i could creat a better web broswer.

    What, 5 years later? About time. TBH i haven't even turned my xbox on in like a good 6 months. Not sure how different it is ( though the ps3 also has not been used much)

    My Xbox live experience in short, Me x-game chatting hey guys, have you heard of so and exclusive games, like forza, or allen wake im really interesting in playing those xbox exclusives, My xbox friends "No, never heard of them, Lets play COD"

    So yeah better believe i let my subscription drag out, waste of 40.00 (special promotion) if you ask me. But whatever floats your boat.

    Xbox Live is definitely better. However i don't think there has been a console that has been defined by an operating system before like the 360. Usually people talk about the games when it comes to a console. The 360? You've got Halo, Gears, Fable, Forza yearly releases and some games sprinkled in like Alan Wake here and there.

    So i guess people feel the need to keep touting how superior XBL is. When at the end of the day PSN still gets the job done and for free. That's really all the 360 has over the PS3. An online service that is easier to navigate with a few more features.

    Not the only thing. 360 gets better versions of multiplatform games almost every time which is an important advantage for me since most of my favorite games this gen are 3rd party.

    Still should be free, you can never ignore the fact that you're paying to play online when others aren't
