    It really does. I bought a Vita couple of weeks ago and had a library of games waiting on me the moment I opened the box. Best deal in gaming.....period.

    I guess it comes down to what you need or want. If XCG is important to you then Live can't be beat...but gawd damn Sony is nailing this PS+ thing. As I said in the MGR on + thread, Sony is giving away 6 month old blockbusters on a continual basis. Whatever its doing with publishers to get these on there is clearly working and I doubt it will stop any time soon. MS is going to have to come up with a solid offering next gen because Sony is giving away XGC for free next gen, and the + sub will give you Instant Game Collection for PS3, 4 and Vita. Infact with it's F2P and apps not locked behind the paywall, MS has to create some real value there but right now PS+ is giving gamers hundreds of euros of games for €50 a year.

    I still feel really disconnected with friends on PSN+ compared to Live, With Live it feels like it's built around you and your friends...I just dont get that with PSN+. PSN+ is good for free games but apart from that i cant see many other benefits over Live? Im sure you guys will come up with a huge list which i'l welcome very much...

    Those that have both Live & PSN how do you's feel on being connected with friends on both? Im i missing something with PSN+?

    Xgc excuse and not feeling connected will end this coming generation...$#@!, it'll feel too connected soon it'll become intrusive lol. But yeah, my time with xbl, it was definitely the superior service. Like UK said everything just meshed well

    I agree that Live does feel more connected (although it sounds like PSN will be much improved in that area on PS4) and little things like if youre playing Forza for example you'll get a notification that one of your friends just started playing the same game is really cool. The Live dashboard is kind of a cluttered mess imo though and if you install a theme most of it is blocked by ugly boxes. And the XMB is pretty barren but the upside is a good theme really makes it look really nice which makes me want try different themes. Live is a better service if online MP is your main mode of gaming because of x game chat (which next gen PSN will have) and other features but the free IGC games and not putting apps or F2P behind a paywall makes PSN the better service for me. And the online play still does its job. Downloads are more consistently faster on Live while PSN downloads are hit or miss speed wise. Some stuff downloads fast other stuff not so much.

    Not to me. XBL is still the better all around service IMO. The free game selection on psn is better but outside of that, xbl is still superior and has better features.

    Yep, I agree. Right now I'm neck deep in Kingdoms of Amalur and also finished Hitman Absolution thanks to PS+.

    I honestly thought most gamers play online now? If online gaming is not your thing then it's easy to see why PSN+ would be better.

    Actually I do play online sometimes but I'm just more of a SP guy. But PSN works just fine for online play as well. Plus I get more value with PS+. And lots of gamers do still play SP games as well. lol But yeah I never said that I don't play online I just said that I play alot more SP than MP. As for online MP PSN does what I need it to do.

    I had both, and the PS plus is the far better deal in terms of bang for buck.

    Free games are actually good on the PS network, not like the laughable ones Microsoft is putting out there

    PlayStation Plus is entirely about the games that you get to play because of the subscription. That is the entire point.

    PSN is one thing and PlayStation Plus is another thing (at least on the PS3.)

    "Free games" - PS+ wins
    "Online services" - XBL wins

    So, each put the other to shame in respect to the reasons they were created.

    @F34R - Online services? Not trying to debate the point, just curious -- which online services specifically?

    Are you saying that any game you play online with the PS3 is using dedicated servers?

    I was trying to make a point.. it would kinda go off topic maybe...

    PS+ doesn't have anything to do with online play, with the PS3.

    The article in the OP is pretty much stupid. It is like saying COD is a better first person shooter than Flower. smh
