If Xbox ever offers a huge anticipated demo like TLOU, I'd expect problems as well.
Come to think of it... I remember when they debuted the "UFC" app. They offered a pay-per-view for free, to a limited number of Gold XBL members (first come first serve.)
I went to my brother's house to watch it.. It crashed. And nobody got to watch it. Even the people who paid.
They said they got overloaded. (under estimated the number of people that would use it.)
**bleep** SONY?!? I have been trying to use psh for about 6 months now and it seems every hour an error occurs or it completely crashes. I get that millions of people are using it as well and it's a free service unless you buy things but crashing everyday, every hour without fail is **bleep**, your server needs the updates not psh areas. And what's with the crap you tell us when we ring up and explain we are having problems with the playstation I.E trying to redeem codes and it says an error has occurred or not letting us use our credit card on our account, you tell people it's their fault when it's not, millions of people all around the world are having the same problems so how can it be our fault. You guys need to take responsibility for when it's your stuff up and stop blaming it on everyone else. NEVER had these problems with microsoft and if something doesn't change I'll be tempted to take my services to them and let everyone else know if they can't decide between xbox or ps to go xbox

Plus is optional and has nothing to do with the servers. It is free.
i believe his point was, that being a plus member didn't grant him immunity from overloaded servers....or something to that effect?
They still have no point. Nowhere in the Plus service description does it say anything about having different or faster or exclusive servers. Why someone would think such a thing is beyond me.
It's because PS3's online is free. Sony kind of made a mistake by making it free, because it costs a TON of money to run something like that. The PSN will probably be better on PS4 if they charge a subscription fee, like what is rumored.
Gotta disagree to a point. Nintendo's servers aren't perfect, but they generally run pretty good and are free for gamers to use. There's nothing wrong with a low subscription fee, but if it's one that's too expensive... then I gotta put my foot down. There would be a lot of gamers left out in the cold.

We all have internet we all buy games. Games increased to $60 last gen so new features such as MP could be implemented without loss of profit. The same will happen this year a $10 increase in games to accommodate for inflation and new standard features. Now if the game is more server reliant then yes a sub fee for game can be added but if F2P has shown us anything is that micro-transactions are highly profitable. Look at League of Legend they mostly sell skins that do not even change gameplay for up to $10 (a scam yes). There are many thing that can be done to increase servers quality ads to a limit, a smal fee "PS!" and many other things I am not paid to discover.
