I was wondering who's swapped from Xbox 360 to PS3 at any point and was it a good decision, is PSN better than XBL? I'm asking due to my Gold membership will be ending in the next few days and I am tired of paying when I could be playing PSN for free.

Thanks in advance.

I swapped back in 2011 but I never payed for Xbox Live. I still play Xbox a lot but PS3 is a lot better. More and better exclusives, free online, PS3 does have an Xbox Live type subscription going on called Playstation Plus. With Playstation Plus, you have a few games in your Game Collection and you can download those full games for free. You can get a free 30 day trial or you can pay. 3 months is 11.99.

I went from Xbox to PS3 at the start of 2012 - the main reason being that I did not want to pay for live anymore.

No regrets so far, so if you have the money, then go ahead.

If you're making this decision based on their Online networks, You'd be a lot better off staying with Xbox Live, it's just a more rounded out and quicker experience, But, I'd get a PS3 for the exclusives.

I just made the switch back in April. Best decision I ever made in my opinion.

As for PSN vs LIVE, honestly unless you have some sh*tty internet you don't see much of a difference. I have no problems with PSN and I play a lot of multiplayer. Then again I pay for pretty decent internet.

My main reason for switching was because at the time I wasn't playing multiplayer enough to justify paying for it, like only once a week or so. PS4 will require you to pay for PS Plus but I don't mind too much since it's cheaper and gives you Plus for PS3 too which means free games.

I have a lot of reasons for loving my PS3 more but they are personal nitpicky reasons that other people probably don't care about biggrin.gif

I made the switch after my xbox up and died on me out of nowhere, you know that red light sh*t. Every since, I have no respect in any form for anything related to the xbox. So far, the PS3 has been nothing but great for me.

Thanks for everyone's response - I think I'll sell my Xbox on eBay for a decent price and then see of I can get a PS3 with that money I've made - I have the newest model 250GB version. One of the main reasons is that Xbox just simply bores me now, and, especially on IV, there seems to be much more players about.

Also, I've pretty much made my mind up about next-gen and am going with the PS4 as I don't want to buy a console that focuses so much on TV... I have a Sky+ box downstairs already, okay?
