Aren't you glad to not have to deal with either of those when it comes to playing online with PS3?
I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

Idc tbh. I love both my 360 & PS3.

I posted this in the "official" PSN Pass thread. But there's a pissing contest going on in there, so it was passed over completely:

I didn't bother sifting through the endless amount of drivel, but one thing that could possibly be overlooked in all this: Gamestop (if you buy your games from there) has been selling EA games, used, for $10 cheaper than usual, to account for the online pass deal.

So, in essence, you're not paying anymore than you would pay if the online pass didn't exist.

Meh. Whatever.

To me, it goes:

PC's Online > times a million PSN > XBOX Live (Though that's switched if you disregard charging for Live is a god damned joke) > times a thousand PS2's online >>>>> Sega Dreamcast's Online >>>>>>>>>>> 3DS' Online >>>>> Sega Saturn's Online >>>> Wii's Online > DS' Online

I'd say having no online for a month or so while potentially having my details stolen is worse.
Friendship is like peeing yourself; everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.

i'd say having my personal information stolen because a company was running their network on dated unpatched/unfirewalled servers (after being warned by security experts about the risks) and then having that same company sit on letting its customers know for a day the worst.. but i guess that's not an option.

i'm just glad i don't have to deal with that kind of shady business stuff on two of my three current gen consoles.

To be on topic:

I think friend codes are worse. (Now that I can afford to) I'd gladly pay for a better online service that you get with the Wii.

Other than the PSN hack, which really annoyed me and I had to go around changing passwords, bank cards and all that hassle. I ended up getting 4 free games out, which for my name/address/DOB is actually quite a bargain!

Plus although the PS store hasn't been great its getting better, and I'm probably in the minority here but recently I have been very happy with my PS3/games/PSN service.

Happy customer :)

Friend codes are terrible, but I just flat-out will not pay for online gaming. It's just not worth it to me. So, yeah, paying is worse.

It helps that I'm not a very social person online. In the real world I do much better. Everyone's so uninhibited online that they all act like ***** and it takes all the fun out of it.

Paying for online is worth it if the service is stable and has enough features.

Friendscodes = EXTREMELY inconvenient + ZERO features.
