Ps3 vs Xbox

I know the both platforms have been out for ages but yesterday I purchased a Ps3 so I could finally compare the both fairly. I've always stood strong with my opinion of the Xbox. The only thing the Ps3 has over Xbox is that the Playstation Network is free.. It's free because it's always down. Since yesterday morning every time i've tried to update I keep getting error messages, no biggy, I thought i'd check on the internet to see if other people have the same error code. What do you know thousands of other users are having the same problem, and in these threads I see there are no Sony workers offering help.
Sony, how may I help?
When I bought my Xbox I was up on live the same day, enjoying all the benefits of live. I know it costs per year but it's never down, the servers have never been down and I've had an Xbox for over four years now. The first day I get a Playstation and the networks down. Apparently they're down for maintenance because they're trying to get a chat system going on like the Xbox, where you press the Xbox button and send messages and that. Currently on the Ps3 you cannot send messages to someone if they're on a different game, which sucks. This new feature to the Ps3 doesn't bother me at all because the Xbox will still be my preferred console, I'd rather pay for PSN if it meant it wouldn't be down all the time.

So yeah I just had to have a little rant about the Playstation Network.. Have you got a Ps3? Do you get annoyed with the Network? If you have both consoles which do you prefer?

  2. Title is kinda misleading. This is just a rant about PlayStation Network.

  5. I've always preferred PS3. I like the games better and it doesn't "red ring". Every single one of my friends with an Xbox 360 has had it red ring on them at LEAST once, some having it go out two or three times. Sure, sometimes the FREE online play goes down but my PS3 has never failed outright.

  6. Nice post man. Honestly, I don't own an X-box right now and have never owned a PS3 but I think they're both equally as good. I hate it when people get way too involved in the console they own and almost forget to enjoy gaming. Following for more interesting posts like you have on here buddy, there's some nice work put into your blogs!

  8. I like my Xbox, but Steam takes the cake in every way. Also, I did have a red ring issue but Microsoft fixed it for free, so I'm not complaining.
