Nice trolling there , of course xbl money went up poor people were probably just trying to use netflix or the browswer and realised they had to pay for live ¬_¬

If people are prepared to pay to play online then sony should gobble up some easy cash, im a pc gamer btw and i play online for free, if i was to buy psn plus on ps4 it would mainly be because of the game deals and not actually the ability to play online.

" im a pc gamer btw"

Negative, you are nothing more than a MS hating troll claiming to be a gamer.
Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II  +   677d ago
oh really heisenberg im the troll lmao, since you say so yea.... and yea i dont like ms btw that you got right to me they dont offer much to gaming and my friends agree as we dont buy any ms products.. have a good day mr know it all and almighty drug dealing heisenberg

So according to your logic, if people don't like MS or specifically their gaming division, then they're not a gamer? If we're gonna throw out random rules then I'll throw one too.

If you don't sitting on your thumb and spinning around on it and then sucking on it later then you're not a real hardcore Microsoft big boy gamer.

Must be gaming on an Android or Apple platform then. If you do decide to go console, I think you should buy a Playstation.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   677d ago
Just no to all your drivel. We all know, including the both of you, that you are trolls. Accept it, ignore me (like I have done you both now) and move on...TROLLS!!!

XBL was great this generation but I'm hoping it gives a even better experience next gen. Step it up MS.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   677d ago
I would like to see something of the same value as PS+.

Edit: I am referring to the amount of "free" content, not the service itself.

Their revenue went up because people had to get Xbox Live to download all the new trailers on the system probably.

MS know in the end the money is in licensing subsciptions, software and hardware will become second.

The IT world, that where and how the money is made, and MS is trying to get it there.

Revenue probably went up for a number of reasons. Obviously, free games till the launch of Xbox One helped - it's why I signed up for another 6 months. Deals on the Xbox 360 - particularly the $99 deal that requires you to sign up for Xbox Live for like 2 years. High speed internet becoming more available. I'm sure there are more reasons, but that's a few.

People spent $197 million on the Xbox 360 (hardware, software, and accessories) in June 2013 alone. That's the most of any console in the US. That was released on gamespot yesterday.
