Comparison: PlayStation Network vs. XBox Live Online Services

400°
305w ago - Here is a 5-round match between PSN and XBL. For each round, the contenders can get up to five points. The five rounds will be features, online play, ease of use, content, and bang for the buck.

Round 1. It's All About the Features

I think we all know which will get the higher score in this round. The PlayStation Network has improved rapidly since its debut. At first, compared to XBL, psn was like a little kid against a big adult.

Since then, psn grew to match a lot of the features that XBL had. I know many of you disagree with us when we say this, but Home is a nice thing to have on PSN.

The reason is that it is constantly evolving, and will soon catch up to what Sony promised from Home and more. Just like PSN... PSN was not what was promised during release, but caught up to those promises. Back then, I would have given psn a 2, but now PSN deserves a lot better. XBL hands down has more features, but PSN has just enough to live with. XBL - 5 PSN - 4.5 (.5 because of Home)

Round 2. Online Play

Both PSM and XBL offer amazing online play. There really is no difference in the online play of these consoles. One of the major benefit of PSN is that the games that use its dedicated servers are huge.

When was the last time you heard...
 

Phished XBox Live Accounts Reported to be in Circulation

50°
306w ago - Last month we reported news that hackers were targeting XBox Live players and selling 'booting off' services.

Today, XBox Live users have another issue to worry about: phished XBox Live accounts have been reported in circulation.

To quote: Today we came across a collection of approximately 270 sets of login details that have apparently been Phished via a fake XBox Live login page.

The list, some 27 pages long in Word format, would allow people to access stolen XBox Live accounts, some of which may have credit card details stored against them (along with other forms of personal information, of course).

The list itself is actually around 300 or so entries, but it seems some of it is duplicate and / or obviously fake data, entered by people annoyed at the Phishers the list has come from (as a side note, I should add it's never a good idea to enter fake info on Phishing pages - it not only makes it harder for people who wade through this info looking for victims to contact, it also opens you up to potential retaliation attacks from the Phishers).

An additional "bonus" of grabbing Live ID data is that you can use it to check out EMail accounts associated with it -...

Microsoft Reconsiders Homosexual LIVE Ban Member Policy

309w ago - Microsoft is apparently considering changing its policy on homosexual users who describe their sexual activity on the LIVE service.

The reconsideration comes after a [Register or Login to view links] from the service after describing herself as a lesbian.

To quote: Microsoft is considering changing its policy on how Xbox users describe their sexuality following a row over a user who claimed to have been barred from Xbox LIVE for describing herself as a lesbian.

Interviewed by MTV, Xbox LIVE program manager for policy and enforcement, Stephen Toulouse, said: "I can't talk about future plans, except to say we want to provide the capability for our users to express relationship preference or gender without a way for it to be misused."

His comments follow an article by the Consumerist in which an Xbox LIVE user named Teresa who says she was abused on Microsoft's gaming service because she identified herself in her profile as a lesbian.
