Well clearly there is no point arguing with an uninformed person such as yourself. Try fact-checking out, it's pretty fun, and you will learn why XBL is better than PSN. And $3 is not $2.75, rounding up and telling a lie does not improve your shoddy argument one bit.

I highly doubt it.
XBL has 30 million members, half of which are Gold subs. So lets have some fun with this:

Monthly income going towards XBL servers: $45,000,000
Monthly income going towards PSN servers: $0

XBL servers: UP
PSN servers: DOWN

Winner: Microsoft

I just got into console gaming a lil over a month ago. I got the PS3 for many reasons. This psn bullcrap sucks but I didnt really buy a PS3 for online gaming. Mostly for single player games and using it as a HTPC and Netflix. When I do my online gaming, its on the PC

I dont like the xbox controller and PS exclusive games are better. Also I like the fact that PSN is free, that way when I do feel like playing online, I can without a gold subscription. Does suck though that this downtime is taking this long.

I bought both consoles a year after they each launched. I agree PS3 has some good exclusives; but I wouldn't say its any different than 360 in terms of exclusives.

Uncharted/Uncharted 2 = Gears of War/Gears of War 2 (though i actually prefer gears because it has co-op)
Forza 4 > Forza 3 > Gran Turismo 5
Halo Reach > Halo 3 > Halo ODST > Resistance 2 > Killzone 3 > Resistance
Fable III > Fable II > Folklore
Alan Wake > Heavy Rain
LIPS > SingStar
Blue Dragon > Lost Odysee > Infinite Undiscovery > White Knight Chronicles


However there are no similar games to the Ratchet & Clank, Twisted Metal, & God of War games that are exclusive to 360. There are 3rd party ones yes, but not exclusive.

On that note, third party games are better on the 360 90% of the time. Probably because the xenon cpu is much easier to write for than the cell.

Not like Microsoft's Xbox Live service is immune to unexpected downtime
Anyone remember the holidays of 2007. Xbox Live pretty much unusable for weeks.
It's a shame what's happening with PSN but XBL has seen worse.
