15 Ways to Enhance Your Experience on PS4 and Xbox One

An independent study conducted by IHS Markit has confirmed something that most of us knew to be true anyway, confirming our anecdotal observations with empirical data- Xbox Live is a damn sight better than the PlayStation Network.

The study rated PSN and Xbox Live across eight parameters- login to network speed, login to game server speed, finding players and matchmaking, time to upload, login to game server reliability, matchmaking reliability, parties, and voice chat- and in all but two categories (both the matchmaking ones) Xbox Live came out ahead of PSN. Overall, Xbox Live ranked higher than PSN for the “overall experience” category, especially since in the actual multiplayer experience (being able to play a match without interruptions), Xbox Live came out far ahead.

“[With Xbox Live], you’re getting the fastest, most dependable multiplayer experience possible,” Xbox’s head of operations Dave McCarthy said in an Xbox Wire post.

“We recognize it is an ongoing journey that requires considerable investment, feedback, and improvement,” he said. “Managing and maintaining a network is complex and there is an army of individuals who work tirelessly on Xbox Live, because at the heart of it, they are gamers just like you. Our goal is to try and see bumps in the road before they start, or get through them as smoothly as possible. Just know that we have a team who works 24×7 to optimize your gaming experience.

“We’re always looking for ways to make sure your experience is the very best, and this is just a small milestone in the journey to delivering the best possible gaming experience this year and beyond,” McCarthy said. “In fact, right now, we’re working hard to bring new features like Clubs, Looking for Group and Arena on Xbox Live as well as cross-play between Xbox One and Windows 10 PC to make it easier than ever to connect with people who have shared interests over Xbox Live. We look forward to sharing more as these features roll out worldwide.”

I will definitely have to concede that Xbox Live is a far better service than PSN is- this is one area Sony desperately needs to catch up in. Particularly since they are now charging as much a year as Microsoft does.

      Cry more Pony, go play remaster

    • d0x360

      Sony has done the impossible and has started remastering remasters…lol I love it! How many exclusive AAA ps4 games are there that are actually good? 2?

      Until Dawn and…Until Dawn? Even then Until Dawn wasn’t great and don’t get me started on how horribly paced and boring uncharted 4 was. Chasing Amy hennig away was the dumbest move they ever made at naughty dog. Without her guidance they have no clue how to pace a game

  • Troy Marcel

    Sounds about right

  • LDS

    + they got better gold games

    • Mr Xrat

      In your opinion. Goat Simulator LOL

    • LDS

      At least gold doesnt give 90% of their games with indie

    • d0x360

      I look at it this way. Both ps+ and xbl free games are for people who can’t afford to buy games. For most of US the hardcore fans they are old titles we can ignore but imagine you can only afford a couple games a year now imagine every month you get 2 games free…when I was a kid my head would have exploded at that possibility.

      So yes usually for us the games suck and really there is zero point arguing who has better games on offer because honestly it doesn’t matter…they arent for us.

    • Mr Xrat

      Might want to check that again, bucko.

  • Michael

    Stating the obvious.

  • crazy_black_man-

    Its not fast enough to save another exclusive bombing like Quantum Break and Recore. The hilariousness continues.

    • PonyExpress

      This news really hurts you doesn’t it lol?.

    • crazy_black_man-

      It hurts my innards. You ever laugh so hard that it hurts?

    • d0x360

      It does and its hilarious. It’s like Sony gives her a cookie Everytime she posts. Such loyalty for a name and some plastic rofl

    • d0x360

      Quantum break was alot of fun and so is record. I dont think anyone was expecting recore to be a masterpiece at its $40 price despite the way reviewers are acting…of course they are the same reviewers who gave no man’s sky 9’s and 10s

  • Mr Xrat

    Study sponsored by MS taken in a restricted time frame when XBL’s had more downtime this gen. LOL. At least pretend you aren’t desperate, MS.

    • PonyExpress

      You have over a hundred seperate accounts that you use to troll with according to Neogaf. They piss themselves laughing at all your fake reviews on Metacritic and Steam.

      Stop defending Sony, 24/7, all over the internet, and get a life kid.

    • Mr Xrat

      Whose alt are you, b1tchboy?

      Go back to waiting for games, sorry ReCore ended up being terrible.

    • d0x360

      Like the 2 hours it was down on Christmas? Oh but PSN was down nearly 2 weeks…weird.

      As for uptime..no PSN doesn’t have a higher uptime. Xbl has the 2nd highest uptime of any network. The only network with higher uptime is AMAZON

    • Mr Xrat

      You mean the two days PSN was down at Christmas 2014 compared to the one day XBL was down at the same time. And since then XBL has been down more.

      By the way, you’re talking about Azure there. Come on.
