Joystiq has a nice little scan
of March's PlayStation Magazine and it looks like Sony's going on an all out assault on Xbox's Live service. With the survey and this article, it looks like Sony's going to really take the online aspect seriously this time. Now, Microsoft's had a few years to tweak and perfect the service so Sony's got a little catching up to do. Really, we don't know how long Sony has been mulling over a marketplace like online service. They could've been working on this for a while and leading us into believing that they are going with the PlayStation 2's lack of a central online service for the PlayStation 3. In any event, I'm glad to see they're working on something and hope that it is as nice as the Xbox service.
