i think all the xbox fanboi's need to chill out. You guys are bashing the shit out of a system that isnt that old, its still in its infancy. The 360 didnt have didly shit at launch, and it had its share of issues too. M$ has smoothed those out though, but they've had a year to do it, give sony a chance.
Anyway i have to agree about the network sucking ass right now. Its funny ill start demo downloads and then while they are downloading play my 360. I kinda regret buying my ps3 without crap for launch titles, the only one i would consider getting is NFS carbon but i already have it for my 360. I plan on dling that tech demo tonight while i sleep.
But as i said, xbox fanboys lay off. This is sony's first attempt at an online community, i doubt live was orgasmic when it launched. (i wouldnt know i didnt own an xbox until like 6 months ago). I mean every thread i go into you guys are just tearing the ps3 apart, give it some time. If its still crap in 1 year ok i understand ripping on it but give it a chance.
True, it's a new console, but Sony's had a year of watching the 360 grow to understand what gamers think is important, and they've apparently wasted it.
Your argument doesn't take into account how much more Live with have developed over the time it takes Sony to match its current
features. If Sony had been smart, they could have been very close to Live at launch, and even innovated some stuff on their own. As it stands, they will spend the rest of this generation playing catch-up when it comes to online gaming, barring some freak occurrence.
