Excerpt: After trying for one hour by myself unsuccessfully, it required three phone calls to Microsoft support and two hours of jumping between the Xbox and the internet to finally set up "live." Nothing intuitive about this set up and the phone support is banal at best. I've assembled more than 100 computers and written code for more than 25 years, "live" set up is an art, not a technical accomplishment.
Excerpt: I think that xbox live is a great service if you are a gold member it is very stable and has fast player matching. However i don't think that Microsoft should be charging for it customers have already purchased the gaming system and games they shouldn't have to spend any extra Ps3 offers the same service and it is free just my two cents.
Excerpt: First, I do have a Xbox 360 with gold xbox live subscription, as well as a PS3 with PSN+ subscription. It is true that there's chat enabled for cross gaming, it's the only benefit that the PS3 doesn't offer. PSN+ allows for free full version games on a "rent" basis (they work as long as you are a member) The 360 allows for demo downloads before silver members can obtain them, but it's not really a benefit. The service for xbox live is great.
"Not too shabby, of ccourse i am only refering to the service, not the games."
