10 reasons why PlayStation Network trumps Xbox Live prev next


PlayStation Plus

The newly launched PlayStation Plus can be viewed as Sony's answer to Xbox Live Gold. However, there are two key differences – firstly, the service is completely optional, and secondly, it provides something substantial for the asking price.

Whereas Xbox Live Gold essentially charges you for online gaming, PS+ is a premium service filled with all kinds of extra goodies. This includes full game trials, automatic demo downloads and firmware updates, exclusive downloadable content, beta tests, PlayStation Store discounts and early access to PSN games. More importantly, if you don't like it, you can still game online for free.

Funny that you mention this.
Xbox Live had this way before. Your kinda late..



4. Yes, PSN gives more bang for the buck; however, many of the features you list are also on XBL (firmware updates, game trials, demo downloads, and discounts to gold members).. Also, no, XBL isn't required and is totally optional as well. What are you smoking?

Dont forget about cross game communications, wait PSN doesn't offer that even with their paid subscription? Ohh... This guy is a joke, simply a Playstation fanboy whose facts are simply blatant illusions produced by not actually doing any sort of fact checking, you sir, Fail.

If u disagree with what is being discussed above please retort with an actual reason or fact. The writer is listing information that holds truth but u respond with he's just a fan boy or he does not have the facts because neither do you, because if u had something smart to add to the discussion u would. Which just makes u an uninformed fan boy as well.

And yes call is required for all online gaming and services. Again get u facts straight fan boys

PSN has cross game communications, but Xbox fanboys wouldn't know that would they?
