From what I have heard, the XBOX is better but it has been outlonger and had more time to change. It will only be a matter of time before PSN gets just as good;.

A mixed bag in my opinion. Imho PSN has less lag and has some cool features but it's just lacking the integration XBL has. When game devs really start to use the potential Xbox will have some serious rivalry, and bearing in mind PSN is free it could be very interesting to see how they play it out.

I'd have to say, right at this moment, that the 360's Live! service is the better of the two, it's just easier to get on with. I can't for the life of me get comms on Motorstorm. I know that I should maybe mess around with port settings and stuff but Live! worked for me from day one with no messing about. The in-game blades, messages, friends list system of Live! is a big plus as well and I can't fathom out why the PSN didn't have a similar thing from day one. I know it's on it's way but it should have been there from the start. The PSN does have a couple of plus points: the (mostly) lack of lag and the fact that you can surf the 'net. (I'm surprised more people don't mention the second plus point.)

To sum up; the PSN isn't finished and, sadly, it looks and plays like it. :(

Atm i would say 360's Live, but then i wouldnt say it was that much better that i would pay for it, even if it is only a 5er a month. So in for that reason my vote goes to the PSN

i say 360 as i had it since release day and its really good. only thing were behind the usa for updates and demos n stuff. only thing is the 360 keeps freezing so much! since the ps3 has been out i aint heard one thing go wrong with it -the lack of games for it so far. but when home is out thne PS3 all the way. + for some reason ps3 has upto 40 people online and its free. 360 has upto 32 and you pay for that!

Hmmm 34 votes and 12 replies .. Looks like some people are having problems backing up their claims...

Sadly, regrettfully and with a lump in my throat I'm going with XBox Live ATM, the only plus point I can think of with PSN is that it's free.

We shouldn't complain about it all for that very reason, but I do, and will till its on par with XBox Live.

Then I will complain about having to pay for what was once a free service ;)

I just don't get what Sony are doing with the PSN, really, I don't, there taking a beating at the moment on so many levels you think they would at least try and fix the one major gripe the Europeans have with the service.

That would be my number 1 priority if I was in charge. But I aint {sigh}.

I love my PS3, I really do .. And thats kinda sad 'cos Sony don't seem to...

i refuse to vots as currently the 360 is FAR better, but then the 360 has over 1.5 years head start.

lets compare them both when they have both been running for a few more years

I'd say PS3 as it's free and runs perfectly for online gaming.

Yeah, it's a shame that most people seem to be clicking "PS3" without giving their actual reasons for doing so.

I agree with the + points people have given for PS3, but, overall, head start or not, XBox Live is better.

Considering Sony tried and mostly failed with a network on the PS2 you can't really say that XBox live had that much of a head start, it's just always been better and Sony have a lot of catching up to do.

Overall I prefer my PS3 to my 360, but, thats just me, my PS3 doesn't require me to ignore an overly loud fan when playing and I think the machine is just "classier".

The 360 feels more like a, uhhhhm.. Well, for want a better way of putting it, it just seems child-like with its interface where as the PS3 is professional and clean.

I dont really play games online, but those i have played on the ps3 and 360 have been stable.

I've rated based on the content on the service, the ease of use, download speeds etc.... of which the 360 is better at the moment.
