What Exactly Are The Things Built Into The Ps3 Online Network?

Really Im wondering about the friends lists and the ingame chat and stuff like that, but also the content and stuff, I suppose its an overview of all of it.

so, the psn.
the psn friend's list
there is a central list in the dashboard but, it is pointless in resistance since resistance friend's list is seperate. in other words, not every developer has to use the psn friend's list and format, they can do whatever they want and unfortunately, insomniac has elected to do whatever they want. (note: dev's can use the psn friend's list and i believe as time goes on more dev's will do this to make it appear more like xbox live. who really wants to have a seperate friend's list for every game?)
the psn store
it's ugly, sorry, but it is. there are only 3 things on the screen at a time and the icons are overly huge. currently there isn't any background downloading. also content is added nearly as fast as xbox live's content is. sure, it will take sony a while to get it started but right now, xbox live is leagues ahead of psn in content and store features/usability. there are some downloadable games, like xbox live arcade and nintendo's virtual console but, they aren't anything special and most are overpriced at $10.
pretty simple, text messaging, voice messaging. there's chat but i haven't tested it. i don't have a usb or bluetooth headset so i can't vouch for actually use of the voice chat features but, they're there.
that's pretty much about it. there isn't much to it. if you are looking for an online experience, xbox live will be the best experience, probably throughout this console generation.
of course i recommend (if possible) you try out both, xbox live and psn.

I understand that the Psn is alot behind due to the release and the format layouts, but soon I will be getting Both either way, Thanks for your help
