    I dont see why not, I personally dont doubt for an instant that Microsoft chucked Live out without the ability to add new features to it via updates. IIRC they talk of a five year life cycle for the 360 so they have to keep it current.
    I also dont see anything on that questions list that isnt already on Live/360, if Sony implement them then its going to be near indentical to what MS have...bar the eyetoy support which is already covered by the webcam addon (assuming it actually gets made).

    Sounds like Sony are actually thinking of a Live system. If they could implement half the stuff in that list, the PS3 would be a worthy competitor to the 360 regarding online support / play. A web-browser would tip it in the home-PC field then, which would be quite interesting.

    But it's only a Poll, so we will not know anything until the PS3 is officially revealed with all the specs.

    Seems that they did delay the PS3 launch somewhat to improve on the features :D

    PMSL. Looks like live to me.

    Well at least Sony are looking seriously at their online support. They could do worse than cloning LIVE.

    Good, I hope Sony do release something like Live. It'd be a damn shame if the PS3 was released without a similar service as it adds so much more to the console gaming experience.

    When was this survey sent out?
