PSN vs. Xbox Live - which is better now?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - PSN vs. Xbox Live - which is better now?

^ I could care less which one someone thinks is better. I am just giving a point of view from someone in my position and I just think for anyone to respond to a post like mine with lists of features they already know I wouldn't use just aggravates me because I don't give a damn about those features and they know that.

It is just people acting like my opinion based on my own gaming habits is wrong and I hate people like that.

Anyways, carry on.

Exactly. Why can't an opinion just be that, an opinion?



                                                                                                                                            

I don't really see where anyone came after you Euphoria, or am I missing a post or something.

I think it may have had to do with FK's response to my post that caused his rant, but I could be wrong.

@Jagged

It isn't me necessarily. It is from me reading through a thread and seeing many opinions that almost entirely mimic mine and seeing people counter those opinions and try to say they are wrong.

I was trying more for a speaking on behalf of those with my view point kind of post.

 

I could have worded it better, but it isn't easy when you are feeding a baby and trying to type on a forum.

poor psn, the amount of hate is something else. As someone on here said before, XBL is a paid for service and psn is not yet people are surprised/boasting/bragging that xbl is better? Why?



PS One/2/p/3slim/Vita owner. I survived the Apocalyps3/Collaps3 and all I got was this lousy signature.


Xbox One: What are you doing Dave?

(!! this is not an attack !!)

But isen't that the "problem". I may be wrong but the topic is about which online service is better, not "which one do you like the most according to your needs".

It's not a matter of use but rather features, like voice chat, Home, demos for all arcade games, dedicated server...

Right now, I think the Live is still above and moving in the right direction (social networking, free games...), minus those damn ads.



^ Which one is "better" is entirely subjective in my opinion.

People are naming things like Cross game chat which from what I read (correct me if I am wrong) is that if I am talking to you over cross game chat I am not able to chat with people on my team in whatever online game I am playing.

So in that case I don't know if it means much for the "Better online" argument. Once again though, entirely subjective.

People mention Netflix, which I admit getting LIVE for on two occasions just to check out, but wasn't thrilled that I couldn't view the titles from my 360 and still needed my PC. They could be changing this in the next update but as of now I wasn't very impressed.

What that does though for my gaming online experience I have no clue.

Same goes for the Twitter arguments, Last.FM, Facebook, etc...

First is available on PS3 through the web browser, second can't be used during gameplay and third once again is available with the PS3 browser. None of which add anything to my online gaming experience.

When I look at an online service I look at just me being able to play with people on my friends list or just joining up with any group of random strangers. Both of which I can do with my PS3. That is what I have always used an online service for, none of these bells and whistles that uite honestly, not many people really use.

Yeah on paper one can say "This one has this and this and this and that" but when it comes down the nitty gritty and we just talk about the ability to connect online and game with other people I just do not see how "superior" one is than the other, especially when it comes to warranting me to drop $40+ on it when someone like me would rather get a new game instead. Sometimes 2-3 when Bestbuy has 360 games for cheap.


I guess people's interpretation of online gaming is different, but for me anything outside of playing online with people and being able to chat or text (which I don't use anyways) with them as I play the same game with them is completely irrelevant.

Right. LIVE is better in YOUR OPINION. The "problem" is, people post in absolutes and that's what he's getting at. It's irrelevant if you, or I think LIVE is better, he prefers PSN, which is why this is all opinionated.

My God, I can't believe I've had to post this so many times.
