    I haven't heard which one's better, but the only things I've heard about Live are from Xbox fanboys who say it's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    I've heard PS2's online service is still rather buggy...but not enough to degrade the playing experience.
     
  9. It's not like it has been discussed before dumbass noob. I used the search feature.

    online service only, I'd say xbox. PS2 requires extra equipment and seems less able to handle online play

    $40 hardly a big investment compared to the price of games.
    Everyonce in awhile it may be hard to connect, but that is bound to happen with the most popular service.

    It's funny that you say that...

    I use a Netgear hub. It's on my desk in my bedroom. My laptop and Xbox hook right into it. My living room holds 3 computers that hook directly into my Router.

    40 is almost the price of a seperate game. Also, keep in mind the games that are built around online play (ex FFXI if/when it comes out) will charge on top of that, probably monthly too... so I'd prefer 1 service that's consolidated, but that's just me

    If you have ever played SOCOM you will see how people buy the game for online play and couldn't give a shit about single player. Nor have I ever had to pay for any type of service and it connected right up to my router. I can be online with my computer and playing a game at the same time.

    $40.00 for a Sony Adapter.
    $50.00 for Xbox Live, which comes with two fully playable games, Headset, and superior on-line play.

    Either way, you have to pay if you want to play. If you're going to have fun, the 40-50 price tag is well worth it.

    I have a PS2 on my desk, and all I need is the adapter (hub is sitting 10 inches away from my consoles). I'm going to wait for a good excuse to buy a PS2 adapter. That, and some sample games that I can play on-line.
