Does the PS3:
  • Have a universal friends list?
  • Have the ability to text and chat outside of games?
  • Have the ability to read messages during a game?
  • Come with a mic so everyone can talk?
  • Have a completely unified online?
No. Even if you paid a dollar for each of the above, that's more than what live costs a month. Is it nice? Sure, I guess if you really don't wanna spend that much. But it's nothing like Live at all


None of that stuff really bothers me.


Well it does bother me and the majority of people.


I guess I've just gotten used to Sony.


Sony gets their money elsewhere, doesn't it cost $700+ dollars to unlock everything on Gran Turismo HD?  And Im sure that won't be the only game that you have to pay to unlock things.


I don't plan on getting GTHD. GT doesn't interest me. Besides, it's up to the developer, not Sony, if downloadable content costs money.

Does the PS3:
  • Have a universal friends list? Yes No it doesn't. Resistance uses it's own list
  • Have the ability to text and chat outside of games? Yes Last I checked, it was only in game
  • Have the ability to read messages during a game? Yes Have to go to the XMB to do this
  • Come with a mic so everyone can talk? You can use a PS2 mic if you want.Bolded for emphasis
  • Have a completely unified online? Going to be soon We live in the present, not the future

From what I have heard, it's worth the price to get the srvice they provide vs. the others' free service.

That also goes for maps, guns, extras, etc., they are included in the XBL fee.  Gears maps were free, COD 3 map was free, etc..



I don't really want to start an argument with you, Xoolio, because you're one of the members I respect and have always liked.  So if I offend you in any way I didn't really mean to.

Who agrees?
Last time I checked online play was free almost everywhere.
Wii = Free
PS3 = Free
Xbox 360 = NOT FREE?!

The only games people should have to pay for are MMORPGS because of the massiveness of it. Do you think Sony and Nintendo will make Microsoft get the message and maybe not charge for Live when they make the next Box?


you are right it should be free
