What makes XBL a superior service, besides the fact that it didn't get hacked?

Mostly referring to this gen since we don't have access to next gen consoles yet. Party chat isn't really a part of the service, it's a feature in the UI. It's a part of the software. Why is it that XBL has such a good reputation if practically all online games use player-to-player connections?

And no, I am not saying PSN is any better. Don't get defensive when I'm not attacking anything. Just asking a simple question.

Ive used both and have had less connection type issues with live over psn for whatever reason it seems smoother to me which is enough to make my decision

Live did get hacked, numerous times and still does today. My account has been hacked twice, 2nd time was very recent.

Until MS remove all the other negatives on the Xbox One, I'm still not getting it.
Looks like PC, Wii U and PS4 this generation.

You spend nine months trying to get out, and the rest of your life trying to get back in.

Dedicated servers.


What games offer dedicated servers that has already been released? Any of them AAA titles?
