PS3 network details

Mike Gallo has shared PS3 network secrets with the Official Playstation Magazine podcast. In many ways, the Playstation Network should resemble Xbox Live - players will have a user ID and an online profile, signed in automatically when the console fires up. Disabling auto log-in may be an option. Gallo's most interesting comment, however, is that Full Auto 2 will use Gamespy as a backend, rather than Xfire or some proprietary Sony system. Gamespy is used primarily for server browsing in PC games. With Xfire being used in Untold Legends, it would seem that PSN is going to be far less regulated than XBL. Does Sony have no plans for matchmaking services of its own?
