Xbox Live is "More Juvenile" Than PlayStation Network

image

Ben Jones of MAG developer Zipper Interactive says Xbox Live is "more juvenile" than the PlayStation Network, which is better suited to the upcoming MMO shooter.

MAG is a PlayStation 3-exclusive online FPS supporting up to 256 players divided into squads, platoons and companies, with squads commanded by players who have advanced through the game's ranking system. Naturally, that kind of game requires a certain degree of communication and cooperation between the players and Jones thinks that's something better left to the PlayStation crowd.

"I actually consider Xbox Live the more juvenile of the two," Jones told GamerZines, because of "the things that are being said" by Xbox gamers. "Each service has its own posse," he added. "I think the PlayStation audience definitely fits more to our game."

"As we saw in the beta, we've got an audience that's willing to communicate and willing to organize and structure, and help other people to play the game," Jones said. "That's the most remarkable thing that I saw in the beta - random people helping other players along to try and familiarize themselves with this really cool experience."

So what do you say, Xboxers? Are you really more low-browed and foul-mouthed than your PlayStation brethren, or is this just PR-speak from someone a company that sold its soul to Sony?

MAG comes out in North America on January 26 and in Europe on January 29.

More foul-mouthed? I have no idea what the fuck he means by "more juvenile".

On a more serious note, though, I do think he's full of it. The only real difference between the playerbases is the exact content of the insults they fling at each other.

I have a retort. Who cares.

Personally I don't like hearing people at all, because the majority of the time its too gloat or to be-little your skill

The only difference between Xbox Live and PSN is that fewer PSN users have a mic.

I bet that if everyone who bought a PS3 got a mic for free there would be just as much swearing as on Xbox live.

Its the games that create the dicks more so than the consoles or online services.

Its nothing to do with the console.
Its whether people can handle being anonymous or not. Turns out that a few Xbox members cant.

Has this man never heard of L4D...that Xbox exclusive that many people have to work together on

EDIT: A lot of people picked up on the xbox exclusive part. I was talking about consoles, most of microsofts products come out on the PC so pretty much nothing is xbox exclusive if you look at it that way. It might be "inferior" to the PC version, but the post was about Xbox 360 being more Juvenile than the PS3 so i was just showing that the xbox 360 community can work together. Like I have seen usually on this game!

God shut up. Its open beta, only the pros really want to play beta. As soon as you put it out on the main stream out come all the 13 year old whinners and dickheads. Same on every platform and every game. Only the really hard core try beta.

And when they do have a mic, they either speak a foreign language or you can't tell what the hell they're saying.

As stated, the only difference is few people have mics on the PS3.

As for the game itself, the only thing stopping the 360 from playing it is exclusivity rights.

This. And I could be wrong, but I think the number of Xbox 360 owners outweighs the total of PS3 owners, so yeah.

I'm an XBL gamer.
And I agree that it is probably the more moronic of the two idiot children we call PSN and XBL.

PR of course. Granted there are a lot of assholes on Live (came across one just the other day in fact) but you get that no matter what platform, even the PC (*gasps*).

Indeed. You go onto any game related site and you will see immature fans of both consoles.

wooty:

So true. Well, to an extent. I didn't think people could be such assholes over a racing game of all things.

Meh.
Opinions are like assholes.
Everyone has one and they all stink.

Or they are 12-year olds saying obvious and annoying stuff like "Dude you just died" and "What? How did I die!?"

That.

A guy I regularly play Endwar with on the 360 plays all of his shooters on the PS3. He says that there is very little talking at all on PS3.

I guess dignified silence is better than kids singing and making stupid noises.

I find muting these illegitimate spawn and talking to the adults fixes things.

I wish there was an age filter for online communication. You could do it on the grounds of protecting kids from predators but it would instantly stop the annoying children whos parents think xbox live replaces baby sitters when out whoring for crack.

Xbox Live, more juvenile? What a riot. Didn't we just have a story not a week ago how some people were being harassed on Home, with the crouch emote? Seems rather immature to me...

I know a few Playstation 3 owners, and a good deal of them are griefers. So yeah, I'd have to say that the player bases are pretty much the same.

This is the only real difference between the two communities.

Internet anonymity makes people juvenile, not a specific online service. There are just as many jackasses on PSN as there are on XBL.

You mean most of the people you selected for the small, closed beta based on merit were nice? *GASP!* I would certainly hope so.

I think he is pretty much right on the money. Even in games were teamwork is CRUCIAL like L4D, people run off on their own. If they put this on Xbox it certainly wouldnt work, but i dont know about the playstation crowd, so i cant say if it will work there either

Indeed. And the above reasons are why I'll never bother to get a mic for my PS3.

same here thats why i mute them all

More juvenile and foul-mouthed? This person can %^$&ing ~#?! his ∞∗£Ξing φΣ‡€ with a θ◊♠Ψ.

yah he is right...some many times i have had to play with the annoying person who keeps cursing even thhey're 5...then i found the mute button and everything was better

Has this man ever played on Xbox Live? He saw one instance in which a PS3 player helped another PS3 player get better at the game. Therefore PSN is definetly better!

...It was guys like this who created racial segregation due to their opinion of one man.

Probably a little over the top.
Both communities have their pricks and good guys.
PS3 people are just silent though; I myself am very quiet when online and only speak up when it's important such as informing someone they're being followed on SOCOM and should turn around and take cover etc...

Well when you have the majority using one service, yer gonna see more of all types, including the juvenile delinquents. This is nothing new.

I blame Halo for XBL being more juvenile but really there aren't as many 12-year olds doing annoying stuff as people say

Its the same amount, the only differance is that Microsoft for some reason thought it would be an awsome idea to give everyone a headset.

No I think that Xbox live and the Playstation network have the same types of gamers playing. Except sony doesn't package their systems with mics so you don't hear the 12-year-olds that curse like sailors yelling into your ear or TV speaker, ....as much as you do on Xbox live. But games on both consoles do let you mute people that spam the voice chat or let you turn it off altogether if you want.

Only because it forces you to. If you could solo the game and screw people over, that would happen more often then co-op.

If he means juvenile by the hordes of twelve year olds then yes.

But that is because people cannot be arsed to buy a mic with the PS3.

I personally don't like to talk(like Gordon Freeman)even thou i own a mic so i can understand . But from my experiances on the Xbox and PS3 i can say they are both equal in stupidy.

It's because more kids have 360's 'cos they're cheaper. The only ps3 owners I've met are thirty-something gangstas (real ones, not twats) who just play FIFA and driving games when they've got some spare time. Obviously this isn't the only case.

Wow, I didn't expect the developer of a PS3 exclusive to come out and say something like that!
