It's free but compare to the serious social benefits that XBL offers, along with it's online consistency, better versions ported games (such as
bayonetta), and increased numbers of competition, the PS3 experience can't compare unless you have less than 20 friends you play with. And on avarage,
PS3 users don't have an expanded network of friends.
In my friends list alone, 85% of people have over 80+ friends they play with. In my friends list along, I have 92 with several deleted + 75% of it is
composed of people I know in real life. And of those friends included in the list, they share the same statistic. And on avarage we play together as a
full party 75% of the time with more people requesting to join but cant because you can only fit so much people in one game type. Every-time I'm on,
its SUPER active.
"If you compare the amount of XBOX gamer-tags posted on the gaming forum in comparison to PS3's, the results are quite clear"
I played Uncharted 2 & KZ2 on PS3 religiously for multi-player. Not to mention I also had a blast with MGS Online. But honestly, 360 has a much more
active and expanded multiplayer environment. Heck, Major league gaming is dominated by 360 users who also own Ps3 but prefer the competition on 360,
and they are PISSED black ops is only going MLG PS3.
I can go on but the PS3s "free" just doesn't give the same returns. Sure its free online, but as your social network expand so does the benefits.
