The original Xbox took alot of features from the Dreamcast, both hardware and software and reincarnated it. Sega`s online service reborn as XBL, fact is dreamcast was way ahead for its time offering webcam chat, built in microphone, downloadable gamesaves, competitions etc. Which the birth of XBL had mostly as standard.
Now maybe im completly wrong and MS did their own thing, but id like to believe that they picked up where the Dreamcast left off, and gave it a new lease of life in the form of the XBox and XBL, this would explain why its so far ahead of psn by several years. Or maybe its because MS already provided at the time their own online gaming network for PC and obviously have IE and DirectX etc.
