@plaintomato: It wasn't a joke and it is true; Sony leads the exclusives race in the download space as well as the full retail space. I mean why are you so hard set on Live being better?
Well, now that you are talking games, it's pretty much the consensus that PS3 is dominating the full retail release exclusives thing now, and maybe or maybe not as far as new "arcade" type titles...I don't know because I haven't seen enough that interests me personally, but that's just a matter of taste. But the bottom line on 360's superiority in the downloadable games category, to me, would pretty much be the whole horde of last gen games available on the 360 vs the whole horde of PS1 games on the PS3 - that's a pretty BIG "games" tick mark in favor of the 360, especially with arcade more or less being neck in neck; the fact that Sony just said feck-you to backwords compatiblity after touting it so much at the start of the current gen.
BTW, downloadable games are part of Microsoft's free "silver" service - so they aren't what we're talking about when we talk about Live as something you pay for. As far as the features of Live "gold" vs PSN...it's pretty much no contest in favor of 360, for many of the reasons I mentioned in my first post and more. Even Sony knows it. And the reason is likely because "gold" is a pay service. I'm all for "free", but seeing PSN vs Live tells me that the fee is worth it if what Sony delivers is what you get for "free".
