I don't know what's going on here. Maybe it's my router, maybe it's my provider, but for me Live is terribly unstable and PSN is solid as a rock. Whatever the case, I personally am getting way, way more value out of PSN than Live especially considering I pay for Live whereas PSN is free.
Interesting when I play on my friends PS3 I get the following:
Street Fighter 4 *laggy SSF4 *laggy SSF2T HDR *laggy MvC2 *laggy KOF XII *decent KOF XIII *laggy
Frequent disconnects and lag out the bung hole.
Street Fighter 4 *good SSF4 *decent SSF2T HDR *good MvC2 *very good KOF XII *laggy KOF XIII *decent
Little or no disconnects, every thing is stable save for KOF XII but that game sucks. Wish I got the chance to try BB and GGX on PS3. I'm told the PSN NeoGeo games are more stable than Capcom. Samurai Showdown Sen and NGBC on 360 netcode is second to none, KOF 2002 is decent but could be better.
I play a lot of fighting games.
Set your router up better. PSN needs different ports open than XBL does. As soon as you have it set right, they play the exact same on almost all games. --- PSN ID: Troll_Face_Flame (formerly armyflame) X360 gamertag: ArmyFlame9 Sonic Adventure 2 = the last GOOD Sonic game.

Playstation+ gives you way more for your money than XBL. PSN goes down way too often though. Going on 2 days of "maintenance" as we speak.

I have used both, and yes, Live smokes PSN. Sony fans that have never used Live are missing out, especially CoD Sony players.... DAMN!
BTW, I don't mind paying, Live is worth it.
EDIT: I could not imagine even playing CoD or BF on PSN, it would suck so bad... no party chat? Damn that would suck. --- I'm your huckleberry... You spend nine months trying to get out, and the rest of your life trying to get back in.
