Aaron Greenberg, group manager of Xbox Live gives his insights into what makes Xbox Live so much different and so much better than the PSN during an interivew on 'Bonus Round'. User genereted content or lack thereof (fake E3 2006 promises anyone?) is also discussed as well as future developments for XNA that gives people the ability to create games without writing a single line of code.
During an interview Aaron Greenberg mentioned the three best things that Sony was doing with the PSN were:
1. Actually doing it.
2. Their store is good, not better than Xbox Live MarketPlace, just 'different'.
3. Original Playstation 1 games
Interesting he didn't mention anywhere that it was free, this was to him, Aaron replied it's 'not important' and that he didn't think it was 'free vs paid' because of Xbox Live silver users being very active on the network.
