    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Live is better, better service, better features. However, I'd rather put a sub fee towards a service that gives me $#@! loads of discounts and free games and play online for free. Just suits my needs better.

    it costs me less than half the price of a 500ml bottle of water per week. i'm sure i'll get over it.

    and i'll keep paying it week on week if it helps me avoid the UI of the playstation store - its terrible.

    live has definitely got worse since the 'blades' in terms of ease of use, but there are things in the PS store UI that are beyond just 'frustrating' and don't even seem possible. one in particular is the way in which you can view games. another (from memory) is the clunkiness of background downloading. i can't remember the exact details - i'll log on later and take a look, but i've mentioned it before on here. it just seems very unrefined. like sony haven't quite considered all the eventualities an end user wants to achieve.
