I have both the XBox 360 and the Playstation 3 at home so I consider myself pretty lucky. I’m also not one of these people who loves one console over the other fanatically.
So I think I’m in a good position to be able to speak about both consoles, and in particular the poor online services they offer.
I had been having a few problems with my Xbox 360 for a month or so, now and again it would freeze in the middle of a game. The first time it started happening it was always the same level in multiplayer Rainbow Six: Las Vegas, so we put it down to that level. Once we’d cleared it the X360 was working fine.
A while after that though, probably a month, it started freezing on the new game I’d bought, Forza Motorsport 2. Then things went from bad to worse.
