I think the number of Xbox Live subscribers shows that there are a lot of people interested in online play...and it's only going to grow as companies make games that take better advantage of it.

But if you had a better online im sure you wouldnt shut up about it.

A Next Gen console without online play worth playing isnt worth having IMO.

i own both systems and the only thing i don't like about PSN is the lack of alot of demos. Having movies and TV show to dowload, who the eff cares. That stuff can be found elsewhere for free.

they both play games online so whats so bad about it? i download movies, new cd's and demos off my PC :) all for free, so all i care about is playing the games online which are the same on every system.
