Where is all that XBL money going?

So Xbox Live goes down sporadically for some people (didn't go down for me), and all of a sudden its a waste of money and a bad service?

The money goes into a lot of different things for Microsoft I'm sure, most importantly it goes into keeping the system secure.

I've got my credit card information stored on Xbox Live, so I don't think I'd like that information stored haphazardly, I like that Microsoft came right out, said they were investigating the issue and fixed it in a prompt manner for those affected.

Doesn't always happen like that ya know? Sometimes it takes days for any sort of acknowledgement and weeks before you knew your credit info was leaked. As a PSN+ subscriber, where was my money going during the hack?

Week early DLC for multiplat titles. I'm pretty sure a good sum of it goes towards ensuring that. If I did pay for live, I would probably justify it by that. A week early for DLC could be worth $50 to some people. I mean, I bought BF3 premium. Of course the early access is more of a bonus.

Im not rubbing this in, but this just shows that paid services can have issues to. Xbox live is not oblivious to the same issues that PSN has.
xchamp  +   773d ago
Yes no service is perfect but the fact that xbl was only down for a small amount of people for just a few hours due to a technical error is completely different to the PSN which was down worldwide for 2 weeks by hackers

was down for me when i woke up :o but now it's better :3

But Xbox live is never down or hacked...
Prince_Dim-Lu  +   774d ago
I'm on Live with no problems.. have 9 friends online now as well. Like others said.. small number of people having problems does not mean that Xbox Live is down.

I love seeing the hopes of the SDF, waiting every day for an attack to equal the debacle of what happen to psn. But alas... this is no hack. Foiled again!

funny, i thought live doesn't go down. i wonder where all those dollars go then if they can't keep it up? probably were too busy counting your money and let it crash.

this is why i havent had live in 2 years, not much better, no free games, no discounts, no perks. oh wells
xchamp  +   773d ago
A lot better (Cross Game chat, better voice quality more features), A few free arcade games (Harms Way), Discounts on different games and add ons nearly every week.

It's back up now. I guess this article will stay at the top since some fanboys want something to argue about.

*Back to playing Halo: Reach*
Lucretia  +   774d ago
yeah, still playing halo reach, got bored of it a few months after release, if only there was new exclusives :P.

still better than cod lol
QuantumWake  +   774d ago
A lot of people got bored of playing Halo: Reach because there is really no incentive in playing anymore. One of the biggest reasons is because there is no real ranking system. I play because I still have a lot of friends who play it and I enjoy playing BTB or Team Slayer.
iNFAMOUZ1  +   774d ago
no problems here either, quite honestly i cant remember a time my live was down...lol
Jazz4108  +   774d ago
Been on my 360 al day and just logged into n4g to find out that the service I have been using all day is down. Okay, if it was down it wasn't for long and did not affect everyone. I have had live for 7 years now and not once has it failed to be there when I want to use it and with ps3 its taken down at least once or twice a month for maintance while 360 does its maintaince without taking its servers down and its more reliable. MS live is the rock and Psn is Sonys rrod plus there's still ylod.
Teaber  +   774d ago
Don't worry guys. It was only down cause there were too many people downloading gigs worth of games.
urwifeminder  +   774d ago

I don't know, xbox live is just "fun"...
it's got that magic without even trying, it feels like being truly at home with all your buddies playing games all night and day.

Congratulations! You're a big man! BIG MAN!!
ChunkyLover53  +   773d ago
Anyone ever notice Microsoft only reaches the hottest news when its perceived at something negative that has happened to them?

I literally was able to log in the whole day with no issues whatsoever, but I come here and its full of trolls that are spouting the same stupid lines over and over again. I cant believe this place is so biased, and that gamers would wish bad things on other gamers, its just mind blowing and so immature.

welcome to the internet
extermin8or  +   773d ago
I've seen several comments claiming "ps3 fanboy's flooded here-it being n4g)- yet all these fanboy comments that apparently flooded this story and are trolling must be invisible because I've seen very few :S wtf?
Donnywho  +   773d ago
Someone's keeping score, hell, a lot of people are probably keeping score. People do a lot of meaningless things. Since the beginning of time perhaps?
