I can't see how it is even close and the gap will just keep expanding with The Last of Us. Let also add before everyone says live is so much better than psn, Microsoft should be embarrassed at what we get for our yearly fee compared to what psn+ gives you. PS4 will be a day 1 buy also here.
MS last gen introduced the 1st all broadband online gaming network which was a huge risk and long-term it payed off for them in spades.Seeing as their competitor Sony, copied Xbox Live by making PSN an all-broadband gaming network as well.Let's not forget that Sony copied the 360's Achievements with they're inclusion of Trophies for the PS3.Sony was thoroughly embarrassed when PSN got hacked and was down for nearly a month when during that same time period, Xbox Live was running without any problems and people were enjoying they're online mp games
.Also, both MS and Sony have had their share of great and crappy exclusives but let's real be here, KZ is nowhere near the juggernaut that is the Halo series.The original Halo was groundbreaking and way ahead of its time with Halo 2 and H3 being completely dominant on Xbox Live due to its excellent multiplayer component.Either H2 or H3 has had more users playing than all of PS3's exclusive shooters COMBINED.MS has more exclusives than just Halo and Gears such as Crackdown,Chromehounds, Kameo, Viva Pinata, Shadowrun, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey etc
.God of War is awesome and I'm looking forward to GoW Ascension as I know it's going to have a fantastic campaign experience and also very excited for The Last of Us as it could be the best game that Naughty Dog has ever developed.Lastly, I think it's a bit silly for you to dismiss the xbox and its library of exclusive games.
