When it's up and functional, yes, yes I do like it better than Xbox live.

Especially that part where I don't have to pay 60 bucks a year for no reason at all. I also like that some games maintain independent servers so that, in five years time when no one gives a shit about the old games anymore, I can still play some console titles online.

What I don't appreciate, however, is people making a big stink over a console war that is fucking over, a selective memory of events which makes said hostility hypocritical (Xbox live was down for two weeks about a year ago, no one cared) and a jeering at Sony for being hacked, an unfortunate fate which is neither their fault nor something that couldn't happen to any other company.

And that wraps anything and everything that could be said about the issue.

If it was a paid service PSN would be up in no time and you wouldn't of had all your personal information stolen. What I find really funny is Sony is still having ads for SoCom 4 and talking about the online play.

There is nothing about charging consumers for a free service that makes it suddenly easier to maintain than one that doesn't. And since XBL went down for two weeks as well, it actually is demonstrably untrue.

And getting hacked could happen to anyone. It's not exactly something you can fullproof prevent or that you intended to happen.

Shit happens, it's really not that big of a deal.

I don't EVER remember XBL going down for two weeks, that's ridiculous, and I've had it for 5 years. Source?

EDIT: 5 years, whoops.

Okay, yeah, now I remember. That was when all the Christmas kiddies got CoD4.

Forget I said anything.

Yeah, and when that happened, literally no one cared.

It didn't even phase people.

It almost makes me feel like this media shitstorm is deliberate.

since we're on the subject of consoles, i just want to rant on how much i despise microsoft for charging money to play online. it's almost synonymous with the 360 to have a gold account. and for what? the ability to play the games YOU bought online? the games everyone else plays for free? the shitty part is there is nothing 360 owners can do about it except take it in the rear. i am shocked microsoft is still raping their customers. correct me if i'm wrong, but didn't GFWL try to charge for online? PC owners told them off for their greedy crap and M$ was forced to abandon their plans. sure it is only $60, but it's really the principle that makes it so disgusting. I guess that's one of the big negatives of a closed platform: it's M$' way or the highway

so yes, like saladin said, I will take the inevitable downtime (that honestly has no effect on me as I don't really use my ps3 for online gaming) over paying $60 for cross game voice chat

The bottom line is that Steam kicks the pants off of all of them.

GFWL never stood a chance, but XBL is pretty insulting. Completely unnecessary. While they're at it, they should charge you 60 a year just to turn the thing on. Makes just as much sense.

PSN is kinda crummy but, it does the job and it's free. That's all I care about.

Although what both consoles have sucked at pretty hard this gen is providing good sit-down games you can play with your friends. Not that there haven't been any, but there were too many times where a game had a functional co-op system but refused to implement split screen. Why? So all your friends would buy copies of course and play them on their own consoles.

true Steam is better by a mile, but even though I can see the reasoning behind it, I still don't like that if you get banned you can't use the games ever again

I sympathize with split screen, though, even if I only did it occasionally (as I have an incredibly small tv).
