"Playstation Network is quickly gaining ground on Microsoft's current Xbox Live setup. Somehow Sony has managed to offer all of this coolness free of charge to gamers. While PSN still has a way to go to catch up to the functionality of XBL, it is closing the gap rapidly and at absolutely no cost to consumers. What really burns my ass the most about XBL the way it exists now is that despite paying $50 bucks a year, I have to look at McDonalds ads every time I flip a blade. If you are getting advertising dollars from huge mega-corporations, why are you taking my $50 bucks too?"
