aiBreeze  +   446d ago
Lose a few free games vs losing almost all your online services... hmm I know which one sounds worse to me.. don't get mad fanboys.
Dixon  +   446d ago
and when your XBL runs out you lose the online part of that game (and all of your other games), happy days!

What does this have to do with the sales?
CerebralAssassin  +   445d ago
Sorry but people cant help but argue about which service is better. Which system is better. Whos dick is big. Who takes the dick better. Just play what the hell you want to play and get the hell over it people.

People sound like Jehovah's Witnesses trying to convince people to play one system over the other. Pointing out flaws with each system. Does it really matter people?

This stuff isnt even related to the post and people still manage to create an argument out their ass.

This is where people like yourself don't understand Playstation Plus...

It's not all "free" (or "rented", if you like) games. It's also HUGE savings.. on top of HUGE savings. (For example, right now, PSN has Mortal Kombat and Batman: Arkham Asylum on sale for $10 each.. Plus members can get them for $5 each.) If a Plus member spends any money whatsoever on a game (DLC not included), they KEEP that game forever, which is no different than what Microsoft is offering on it's sales.

The difference is, Xbox Live Gold doesn't give you 64 "free" (or "rented") games a year that you keep as long as your membership is active. And with savings and "free" (or "rented") games like that, why would you not keep it active???

(You mad?)
nukeitall  +   445d ago
Each service has it's own value proposition, depending on what you are looking for.

For instance, with XBL I had numerous dashboard revamps with significant updates to features. Many do not exist on PSN, and the PS3 hasn't changed it's interface since launch.

On the flip side, PSN+ offers free (or rental) games that XBL Gold does, but obviously isn't of the same quality yet. Although the Xbox games, you get to keep.

Point being, benefits and drawbacks to both. Why be mad at all, and enjoy it!?
warewolfSS  +   445d ago
Ill tell you a secret. When you preach about ps+ in a Xbox live article... Ya look insecure bud.
CerebralAssassin  +   445d ago
Not saying I agree with what im about to say but what if I dont like the 64 different games that are free? What if ive only been a member for 3 months. I dont have 64 different games. Even if I like every game that was free. I wont replay them once I beat them. Thats if I play them at all. Makes it a waste of $50 if I dont even play the stuff thats free or if I dont download the stuff they have on sale.

this partially pertains to me. Ive downloaded every game for the last 2-3 months. Ive played some of them before. Most im not interested in. Ive played and beaten 1 game I downloaded out of the 10-15 I have for ps+. Its not a selling point for me.

whats the point of getting free games for a paid membership if im not going to actually play the games. There isnt...
kreate  +   445d ago
I'm a xbox gold guy and I only recieved 1 dinky game for free. I'm still waiting for 'that awesome free game' everyone keeps talking about.

While ps plus guys recieved some $10000 worth of games already.
BLAKHOODe  +   445d ago
Sorry to disappoint, but I'm not a "fan boy" of Sony or Microsoft. I'm a recognizer of a good VALUE, which is why I click on this article to begin with.

@warewolfSS ..Considering what I posted was 100% FACT and still managed to get so many disagrees in the Xbox Live article, I don't think I'm the one looking "insecure", bud.

@CerebralAssassin ..64 games over a year's time. Sorry in your 2 or 3 months as a subscriber you've yet to find something you enjoy, but not everyone can be pleased. For every 1 person who can't, though, I'm sure there are a million who have.

I purchased Kinect Sports 2 yesterday, tons of fun..
No_Limit  +   446d ago
$10 bucks seems like a great price for probably the best Kinect based game. Enjoy.

I bought Borderlands 2 for $10. Now that's a bargain!

Btw, I didn't need to create a Hungarian account to get it. What's that about?

I already own Kinect Sports 2, otherwise I would have been all over it.

The game is a huge blast with the family or a bunch of friends. I totally see why it sold millions (and ironically better than many hardcore games).

If you haven't tried it yet, you should with a bunch of people!
BelieveinGhosts  +   446d ago
The sales have been amazing on Xbox Live. Bordrlands 2 was even 9.99
Starbucks_Fan  +   446d ago
Is The Orange Box worth it for 4.99? Also is TF2 still active online?
ziggurcat  +   446d ago
half life 2 *and* portal is well worth that price.
biRdy  +   446d ago
Been a while since I tried TF2 on 360 and back then it was pretty empty. The Orange Box is still worth it though just for Half-Life and Portal.
vikingland1  +   446d ago
The witcher 2 for 10$ is a great deal.
InMyOpinion  +   445d ago
That's amazing. I already own it and that's a LOT of game for $10.
I bet I will get 3 steam games for the price of one xbox game discount. lol

Steam summer sale > all.

That may be true. But if they play on Xbox that will be no good to them will it. Lets just let people enjoy their sale shall we.

CerebralAssassin  +   445d ago
