Would Sony be screwed if Xbox Live was free also?

I strongly feel that either A) Both will have free online or B) Both will charge for online.

What do you guys think?

Nope. Microsoft have nothing to compare with PS+.

I believe if MS were to stop charging for xbox live they would have to make up for the loss of revenue by charging more for the xbox 360 - due to this, I don't think it would give them any advantage.

Why would it be? 360 still wouldn't have the PS3 exclusives.

Hmmm, I don't think Sony would be screwed, but some Sony gamers will go over to Microsoft. That said, I think that Microsoft going with free Xbox Live is highly unlikely, while Sony charging for online is unlikely.

Maybe but xbl is down right now.

I doubt it though.

That new dash still is terrible. IMO.

probably, i know for a fact if 360 had free online i never would have gotten ps3

No. Microsoft's big exclusive IPs aren't appealing to me, and I believe I speak for a large number of PS3 owners who also prefer the exclusives Sony offers.

Not to mention the PS3 is a better console.
Why? Because **** you is why.
