The PlayStation Network vs. Xbox Live debate has been going on for some time, with fanboys/girls from both camps arguing why one is better than the other. There’s at least one developer out there that believes the PlayStation Network is superior to Xbox Live. United Front Games, the developer of upcoming title ModNation Racers, wants “everyone who buys a copy of the game is able to get online for free and then share all this content.”
United Front Games likes the fact that the PSN is free, unlike XBL, which charges users to play online.
“As we were coming up with what we were doing and what we wanted to create, we spoke to some different publishers and immediately there was this sort of synergy between us and Sony,” says producer Dan Sochan. “And in terms of the hardware, the power of the PS3 and the PSN network being free — that we could make sure that everyone who buys a copy of the game is able to get online for free and then share all this content — were really important for us.
“For us it’s really a lot about the community feel and we feel that the PSN has a very strong community at present.”
