Microsoft and Sony continue to ramp up their media presence with video and music services. You can rent and purchase music, television shows, and movies via Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, but do you?

If you do opt to acquire this type of content through one of the services, do you typically rent or buy? What draws you to the platform-specific services rather than one that touches multiple devices (like Amazon Instant Video)?

If you don’t use platform-native media services, why not? Are there things that could be changed to draw you to one of them? Let us know in the comments.
