- Sony's catching up, and it's only a matter of time until both consoles are battling for what really matters, and what should still really matter in the gaming world - games.
It's lately been about who's got the best online, but those will be almost identical sooner or later and it will be back to the basics.
Sony started off the PS3's life with some okay games, a lackluster online service and little to no DLC to extend the lifetime of their games. 2008 came along, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of the Patriots, Resistance 2, LittleBigPlanet and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift were all brought exclusively to the PS3 for the enjoyment of it's users everywhere. Heck, MGS4 received multiple Game Of the Year awards.
Not only were those awesome games added to it's library, it finally received a much-requested feature - the in-game XMB. Rumor after rumor of firmware updates, it's 2008 all over again! Cross-game chat and voice-messaging are coming to the PS3 this year.
There's no doubt in my mind. Sony needs to add a new firmware with new features, they've done so much with the PSP - now it's the PS3's turn.
Just those two added features, and the PSN will come just so much closer to Xbox Live. Not only will the PS3 come closer, but it doesn't have the damn failure rate! How long will...
