Yesterday, Sony finally showed its cards for the PlayStation 3's online network strategy. At a Gamers' Day press event in San Francisco, the electronics giant demonstrated a number of features for its PlayStation Network, from streaming video to the PlayStation Portable to downloading new titles and original PlayStation games straight to the PS3's hard drive.
As closely as gamers were watching the event, it's a safe bet the architects of Microsoft's Xbox Live service were just as interested. In July, Xbox Live group marketing manager Aaron Greenberg answered some questions for GameSpot at Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays premiere event. In the wake of Sony's event, GameSpot again went to Greenberg to get his reactions to the PS3 online service and see how much difference a few months can make.
