Xbox Live had online issues back in 2007 that caused gamers to sign on/off for two weeks which Microsoft remedied somewhat with a free game. Not all gamers were effected by this like PSN was and those issues were unrelated to hacking. Four million people signed up for XBL in such a short time period which caused the inconsistencies.

Seems to me like XBL users feel the constant need to justify spending hundreds of dollars over the life of the console for the service.
Despite what fanboys would have people believe, PSN has had perfect uptime and no slowdowns in my using it.
It's also pretty easy to entertain the idea that XBL could have been hacked as well if they provoked the wrong group of nerds.
XBL is not a requirement to play games.
People pay for it because they feel it is worth it, so if you don't feel its worth it then simply don't pay for it, it's that simple.
PSN is in a position that it's in because of a fatal design flaw in it's security similar to how the console itself was hacked.
Neither of the other consoles have this problem.
