They are both the same type of system only they have different names and different games. All in all I have been a psn fan since the Ps1 came out but thats just me, but everybody has their own personall opinion on the system they like.
Playstation has bluray and free online where as Xbox has a better service, doesnt get hacked annually, better graphics, better exclusive games, indie games, minecraft, more game add-ons faster, better gpu, and more. Yeah I think I'm alright paying $60 a year for all that. Sony loses.
