    1. First slide compares Xbox Live Gold(disregarding the free Xbox Live Silver) with plain PSN. Winner: PSN because it's free. Then second slide compares Xbox Gold with PSN+, which you pay for. Bias much?

    I've played on both Xbox 360 and PS3 online. In my opinion, when it comes down to it, you get what you pay for.


    1. Xbox 20gig launch price was 399.00. XBL was 50.00. That's about 450 bucks. PS3 launch price for the 20 gig version was 499.00 (THIS VERSION DID NOT HAVE WI-FI AND REQUIRED AN ADAPTOR TOO. That's about 500.00 bucks (also, this unit does not even come with a headset, which must be purchased separately).. How is this first point even valid? Your facts are wrong. PSN is better because of money? 550 bucks (ps3 + headset) vs 450 (Xbox + XBL).

    I troll idiots

    Xbox live money adds up ya fuckin moron go smoke some more crack

  • Papa Paris

    Xbox has Internet Explorer!

  • Steve

    Fairly certain this was written by someone that has either never used Xbox live or has only had a very short glance at it.

    I have full access to the internet via my Xbox. Moreover, I actually watch my Foxtel via Xbox live. It works out cheaper in the long run. Music videos? Yeah, Xbox live has that and more. Very narrow view of things here.

    Papa Paris

    It's all about that G score buddy. Fuck your trophies.


    Okay, this reason just sounds like trolling

  • DeeDeeDee (same as writer of this misinformation)

    Dont forget about cross game communications, wait PSN doesn't offer that even with their paid subscription? Ohh... This guy is a joke, simply a Playstation fanboy whose facts are simply blatant illusions produced by not actually doing any sort of fact checking, you sir, Fail.


    4. Yes, PSN gives more bang for the buck; however, many of the features you list are also on XBL (firmware updates, game trials, demo downloads, and discounts to gold members).. Also, no, XBL isn't required and is totally optional as well. What are you smoking?

    Jay money

    And yes call is required for all online gaming and services. Again get u facts straight fan boys

    Jay money

    If u disagree with what is being discussed above please retort with an actual reason or fact. The writer is listing information that holds truth but u respond with he's just a fan boy or he does not have the facts because neither do you, because if u had something smart to add to the discussion u would. Which just makes u an uninformed fan boy as well.

    Fuck u wanna kno 4

    Fuck Xbox

    Xbox Suxs

    PSN has cross game communications, but Xbox fanboys wouldn't know that would they?

    Papa Paris

    Funny that you mention this.
    Xbox Live had this way before. Your kinda late..

  • dope dude

    pc is still better


    2. What about all the classic games available on XBL? Do those not count... Or you just trollin? (Many PS2 titles are available on XBL, as well)


    I agree with dope dude.

    The pc is a lot better than consoles.


  • Your mom

    Too many Xbox fanboys in the comments.


    Made by the worst PSN fanboy ever. You write like shit, and you can't find good arguments.. Do your research. "XBL has avatars, PSN has not" is such a sucky argument, you kinda reverse it. You suck.


    3. Avatars? How many PC games have avatars? Maybe the stole the idea to use a controller too? Ohhhh, yeah PS doesn't have avatars? What about Home?

    Papa Paris

    LOL Take this down. Your a joke and are going to attract lots of intelligent people shitting on you. We have avatars and have had them way before the Wii buddy. We ALSO happen to love our avatars. The fact we can dress them up in fashions that are in stores now makes it even more exciting. Your a sorry person and just cant see it the way we do. Thats why you have a flashy bluray player that just so happens to play games.


  • laughable stock.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Absolutely what PSN is all about. DO it. DO it, I dare you. When it comes paying for it, oh my god. I can't deal.


    I read the entire article because I was truly interested to know which were the 10 things(not 1, or 2, but 10!) in which the PS3 is better than the 360, and all I read was avatars, trophies and another bunch of things which I believe the 360 is also able to do. Not even the slightest mention about games, graphics, sound, or hardware. How dissapointing to find that an immature, ignorant (and poor most likely, if you are complaining about $60 a year) 12-year old has access to a site and is allowed to write this kind of pathetic "review". GoodGearGuide, what a shame, what a shame...


    lol. All I read is a list of 10 things no one cares about. The key feature is the functionality of online gaming. Xbox Live destroys PSN in this capacity. Lag is rare on Xbox Live, while it's common place on PSN.


    LOL. Where do you think they got trophies from? After they realized Microsoft had achievements, they made trophies a year later. lol. The only thing PSN beats XBL in is free games. Other than that, it's the Poor Station Network.


    This article is both talking out their asses, and loops back on itself...

    "Silly avatars"

    We have lots of Apps that allow the same thing once again. And its not only limited to Aussie players.

  • Papa Paris

    Xbox Live has tons of apps that allow this exact option. Including YouTube and VEVO.
    We also have Internet Explorer in which we can watch flash videos.
    (Yes.. you can watch porn)

  • kick ass

    psn is free and x box is no ya dobbers

    Edward Carmona

    To all who can understand,I was hacked on xbox live.They got a hold of my pay pal on xbox live,& now I own battlefield 3 premium twice,& the overseas customer service is a dam joke!Full of reasons why this could have happened,& no real solutions.& i also think its affected my playing,I can't move around,or fire my gun?My family has already moved away from microcrap junk(APPLE!)& I will be moving to PS4,I just can not take it anymore,I call xbox live to ask for help,& it feels like walking into an empty room were you can hear an echo,NO HELP!For the best playing around I think xbox,& microcrap are highly compromised,& under constant internet attack,were as all my friends & family are happy with their PS4,& game play is lag free.So please if you care for you friends & family buy a SONY PS4,& get APPLE computers for billy gates doesn't really care about you.


    Xbox one doesn't require xbox live gold to play online or buy games, sooo Xbox one online services are totally free. Besides the fact that championships like call of duty are all played on the xbox.

  • Jay money

    Don't be mad because x box has no handheld devices

    GamePro staff is retarded

    This is the biggest fanboy blaspheme I have ever read,

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
