MS knows what there doing while Sony seems to be just learning and I don't see how its surprising at all that even a year later Live cannot easily be matched by Sony. And thats one of the reasons its free. Programs like Live and Windows is MS turf and what made them a billion dollar company. And who is to say some aspects of Live is not patented and thats the reason Sony cant just copy it and I think they would still get flack if they did just like they did with the controller.
How long has the PS2's online adaptor been out? Sony has had at least 2-3 years to toy and experiment with that so they should have a decent understanding of that technology. I agree with what superklye said about having that one year to fix mistakes MS made. I think Sony is so conceded and has their heads so far up their own arse, they can't go buy a 360, find where MS went wrong (back last year) and improve on that. But no!

I have no idea why the PS3 could not have been released earlier back in March, but was it such as huge problem that Sony couldn't take advantage of the time they had to fix small problems like emulation, BR playback and so on?

I really hope Sony chokes on the PS3, Boo-Raype and all. Sony deserves what is coming to them not only because of making one mistake after another, but for charging everyone out the ying yang for their stuff (even though it's a POS).

I don't know if I'd say the PS3 has "all these issues".

Most of the stuff that I'm not liking is all feature based, not being able to download in bkground, PS Store needs more content etc. But I can't say I've personally had issues with the system other than the 2 random shutdowns but that was my fault and is fixed now. If I do get any issues though I will let you guys know but for now I'd just like to see more features.

The dust magnet thing isn't an issue for me either...still hardly any dust on.

I also love how you complain about the lack of downloading in the background, even though it took XBL a few months to get the same damn thing.

Face the facts, you are a moron.

I don't understand fanboys.

These tech companies SCREW them, tells them lies, take their money; yet despite being screwed, fanboys still defend those companies.

Perhaps someone with a psychology degree/career can explain this.

WTF.

For Sony FBs, yes. For most others, nah. Sony is becoming known for hitting a world record of not only ripping people off, but making close to a trillion fa-fillion mistakes.

Mr. Hate... I mean Hunt is referring to Project Gotham Racing 3 and Call of Duty 3. 2 games out of the entire Xbox 360 library.

Actually thank you for pointing that out. Simple typo that rarely happens, unlike Zelda_fan using "your" when "you're" should be used 99% of the time.
