I guess you can say Xbox Live was better early in the generation, but it didn't get that much better as time go on. PSN was always free, a huge reason for a lot of people that don't play online often or don't want to pay, but still have the option to go online. Wasn't that great in the beginning, but seems to improve more than XBL. Not to mention, PSN+ seems to provide additional service for those that want to pay for the extras.
Then there you have it, PSN>XBL by a slight margin. Not saying one is better than the other, but this is what people prefer on gamefaqs.
It's because PSN is free and PS+ is a better subscription option then Xbox Live. Nobody can deny how much better PSN has gotten since launch. At launch XBL was leaps and bounds better but after the last 2-3 years PSN has blown it out the waters especially now that Microsoft wants to force ad's down everyone's throats. But since the entire hacking fiasco PSN has taken off majorly and as someone who uses both their is no doubt in my mind that PSN is better and that's mostly because Microsoft doesn't care about gaming and doesn't want to offer the gamers anything. They want to force feed us ad's and give us stupid app's that nobody cares about (aside from Netflix).
Wow....way to start a console flame way gamefaqs lol.
But, megamanx1979 is right. I paid for NUMEROUS arcade titles ( games like Shadow Complex), and if I am not ON Xbox live, I CANNOT play games that I spent my money on? Get the hell outta here Microsoft. What am I, paying a mortgage on titles I already should own?? Ha, hilarious. I agree that Xbox live has better features than PSN though.There is no excuse for not having party chat options...but I'm sure PS4 will finally fix that.
Huh? Xbox indie games are the only ones that require a connection, and that's because of the rating system, as I recall. As long as the content was originally downloaded to that console or the licenses have been transferred, you can access all the rest of that stuff without a connection just fine. (...or is this sarcasm? Can't always tell around here.)
