He was pointing out how much the Xbox Dashboard has changed, but the PS3 XMB is practically the same exact thing with some minor tweaks.
No troll, but that's pretty evident.
Why fix something that's not broken? I'd be somewhat frustrated if Sony were to keep making changes to the interface. I'd be even more annoyed if I had to pay to play a game online after I'd already spent money on the purchase, and on an internet connection.
Granted, $60 is not a lot of money, but it's the principle: I've purchased the proprietary hardware loaded up with closed-source software, and I've purchased the game - but the online features remain at ransom until I pay the manufacturer for the privilege.
As long as you refuse to open the operating system to third-party software development, and I don't have any alternative but to use your service, then charging me for the opportunity to utilise hardware features on a gaming platform that I've already paid for is bullsh*t.
If you're willing to pay, then that's fine; but boasting about a service that you're being charged for in contrast to a free service comes across as ridiculous to me. The fact that they shove advertisements down your throat after taking your money just adds insult to injury.
