A survey conducted by Tooltester calculated the number of outages experienced by 30 frequently visited sites over a period of one year. The results reveal that Steam suffers a lot more outages than Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, and you can check out the detailed list through here.

Discord topped the list with 129 outages, and Steam experienced 99 outages in a year. In comparison, Xbox Live and PlayStation Network experienced 63 and 49 outages respectively. These make for some interesting numbers and comparisons, indicating that Microsoft’s offerings might need some improvements to keep up with Sony’s network infrastructure.

Of course, both of them are nothing when compared to Valve’s Steam – which has outages nearing the numbers of Xbox Live and PlayStation Network combined. Most of these outages from Sony and Steam cause users not being able to log in to the services, but Microsoft’s majority of outages have issues related to online gaming.
