Why the PSN is better than Xbox Live

10 reasons why PlayStation Network trumps Xbox Live next

In our humble opinion, the PlayStation 3 is superior to the Xbox 360 in every way that matters*. From the reliability of its hardware to the quality of exclusives, it has consistently flogged Microsoft's ailing console from day one. (We're not even going to get into the whole Blu-ray advantage – some arguments are just too easy.)

However, according to urban myth, the PS3 has a serious chink in its armour, AKA online gaming. The PlayStation Network simply can't compete with the user-friendliness and versatility of Xbox Live -- or so the MS fanboys would have you believe.

While it's true that the PSN took a while to hit its stride, the service is now every bit as good as its Xbox 360 counterpart. In fact, we're going to go out on a limb and declare it even better.

In no particular order, here are 10 reasons why the PSN trumps Xbox Live. In your hearts, you know this to be true.

To all who can understand,I was hacked on xbox live.They got a hold of my pay pal on xbox live,& now I own battlefield 3 premium twice,& the overseas customer service is a dam joke!Full of reasons why this could have happened,& no real solutions.& i also think its affected my playing,I can't move around,or fire my gun?My family has already moved away from microcrap junk(APPLE!)& I will be moving to PS4,I just can not take it anymore,I call xbox live to ask for help,& it feels like walking into an empty room were you can hear an echo,NO HELP!For the best playing around I think xbox,& microcrap are highly compromised,& under constant internet attack,were as all my friends & family are happy with their PS4,& game play is lag free.So please if you care for you friends & family buy a SONY PS4,& get APPLE computers for billy gates doesn't really care about you.

Xbox one doesn't require xbox live gold to play online or buy games, sooo Xbox one online services are totally free. Besides the fact that championships like call of duty are all played on the xbox.
