In an interview with MTV’s Stephen Totilo, Sony was asked how they plan to beat Xbox Live and what is it that PSN has to offer that the competition doesn’t have.
Listening to the interview has hammered the realisation back into my head that one of the most powerful aspects of PSN is that it is an open network that allows users to upload and not only download. This is highlighted in the article by talking about Little Big Planet and the experience that it will offer to gamers and their creativity.
Xbox Live and PSN share many similarities, but allowing gamers to create and share is definitely the most powerful card that Sony can play in terms of features and, oh yes, the fact that it is completely free.
