How fair is online gaming? A Digital Foundry special report.
Good read, except I feel like this is common knowledge to any online gamer. Honestly, the best way to "deal" with Lag is to use dedicated servers, that way if you are lagging you will be at the disadvantage, and not the entire lobby. They could also use server list to help you pick a room with good/decent ping.
Xbox is legit but i got a ps3
WTF does your comment actually mean? Then once you answer that... What has it got to do with the article? :/

Oh okay i see, it was weird reading the article and then reading your comment lol Sorry if i came off a bit rude. :)

I play both Online and honestly they both play bad when it lags. Random lock ups, freezing and dropping dead because the host is still moving. One shot deaths, getting hit markers but dying and kill cam showing no bullets fired. It doesn't matter anymore what console you play the game on. Either way the lag is incredibly annoying.
Online is crap, titles need to bring more local play.
Ask Sony and developer why PS3 version doesn't offer local play while X360 version does offer system link which is local play.
My little brother's first online gaming experience was Resistance:FOM, so he didn't believe people when they told him about LAG. It was hilarious. Honestly though, I've experienced less LAG via PSN than any other network. Steam will forever be the best online gaming experience with the most features, but PC's are inconsistent.
I rarely experience any lag in any game on the pc, ps3 or 360. When I do experience lag, either cablevision is having issues or its related to the game itself and only a patch for the game not the network will fix it. People don't know what they are talking about. I laugh at people that claim that xbl has less lag than psn, when the majority of xbl games are peer to peer and most of the dedicated server games are third party servers/games nothing to do with xbl at all.
online gaming on consoles is a joke, but millions dont seem to care.
