    What do you think is the best for online gaming.For me it would be the xbox if it had a better community and not a bunch of 5 year olds using mics.Steam has the best community along with psn but I would say steam is a bit easier to use.Steam for me.



    NWFC pwns all XD

    I love how the option for NWFC ends with an "XD". No respect! [​IMG]

    Steam wins hands down if your PC is built as a gaming machine. It's free, yet the quality of service and the community is top-notch. The deals on there are insane as well.

    I haven't used the PSN because I simply don't have a PS3, but the general consensus is that XBL is superior. Perhaps you get what you pay for?

    Steam. I don't have any of those consoles. Steam has insane discounts and deals and I love 'em. The community is awesome too.

    An acquaintance of mine who has both a PS3 and a 360 said that XBL > PSN


    I'll just vote for PSN [​IMG]

    Steam obviously wins.

    But strictly speaking from a console aspect, XBL destroys PSN and N-wifi.

    This.

    I like the feature "steam cloud". Steam is way too good. Well, if I would compared XBL vs PSN.

    XBL obviously has the better service but community wise, lol, not even.
    PSN is good, decent community but almost no one has a microphone. But I heard the service is tons better when you upgrade to PS+.

    NWFC is obviously the best out of all of them LoL. Run at 12 frames/sec in brawl or other wifi games. Which online service can do that as good as Big N?!

    Depends what you are looking for really. In terms of community, availability and ease of use Steam is probably best.

    XBL is better than the PSN in most respects except A-You have to pay for it, and B-On the PSN you can use money, not f*cking microsoft points (which are bullshit, frankly. Let me pay in cash).
