Just got done reading a fanboy article titled, 'PS+ puts Xbox live to shame'
seeing how I've come across an innumerable number of these arguments, figured I'd finally weigh-in and set people straight.
PS+ is a game rental service, you pay the monthly fee, they tell you what games you can play for free.. and you get some other stuff too, stuff that no one ever really seems to talk about when they feel the mistaken need to compare the two... they just talk about the 'free' games. that about sums it up.
Xbox Live is a social gaming network, you pay the fee, you get access to a completely connected and almost exhuastively interactive community hub that allows you see, talk to, spy on, and communicate with any other player as you see fit... and you get some other stuff too, stuff that you already pay for and can use on other devices but now have the ability to enjoy when you're not playing online. that about sums it up.
stop comparing the two.
one's a rental service. one's a gaming service.
