Eric Lempel, PSN's director of operations, has said how they're no longer playing "catch up" to rival service Xbox Live, it has "evolved tremendously" since launch.
The big boss pointed to the PlayStation Network being free to play on, they have the PlayStation Home platform and users can buy and not just rent movies. PSN takes the lead?
"...at this stage of the game when I really look at PSN and the entire offering I think we're in great shape. I don't think there's a lot of “catch up” anymore," Lempel told .
"In some cases, I think we've got more, and we've got some other things they don't have. In terms of strengths, of course we're still free, and we're giving you a lot for free. It's not just free online gaming, but we've got PlayStation Home, which is a massive community and application that's totally free to use."
"Our video download service is also a little bit different from theirs in that we sell movies in addition to renting movies, so consumers who want to keep that digital media or pull it off their hard drive and store on an external device," continued the PSN director.
"I think there's a lot we're doing that in some cases they're not doing, and I don't see a lot of things they're doing that we're not," he noted. Has the PlayStation Network managed to overtake, or even reach parity with Xbox Live, videogamer? Sony says 'yes' to both.
