I hope this article isn't correct but it seems that Sony are going to take the same approach to online with PS3 as they did with PS2. One of the greatest strengths of the Xbox is Live and with the 360, the online experience is totally integrated into the system from launch. I just wish that Sony would launch some sort of central service to compete with Live because sooner or later this is going to be a major factor, if its not already. With news that Nintendo are finally starting to take online seriousley, and with the qualtiy of Xbox Live on Xbox 360 this could be one of Sony's major undoings. I mean come the generation after this next one (PS4, X3) where online could quite possibly be the primary factor in a console's success how can Sony hope to compete when they have not established any infrastructure at all?
