For dead space dev diary video i carnt f..king belive it that dev diary is just a free video on psn Sory but you guys on xbox live are getting ripped of big style and ms you should be ashamed

whoknew3463d ago

If you don't like it don't buy it. I don't care I'm buying the dev diary, what you can't afford 150 points?

you mean you actually have to pay for this stuff... really! Christ i knew that PSN was better, but i didn't realize it was that much better. i suppose that comes from taking FREE for granted.

wicked3463d ago (Edited 3463d ago )

No, you are not forced to pay for it, you can choose not to.

outlawlife3463d ago (Edited 3463d ago )

clearly you've never used xbox live, because if you did you'd realize how foolish your statement was

you act like they are giving away guitar hero content on PSN... 98% of the time you pay for the same content on PSN as you do on live...and to top it off they are exactly the same price

RoarrrUK3463d ago

How can the dev trailer cost points? The US PSN has dev trailer for dead space for free.

^^
I think he's refering to themes. They are free on PSN.

outlawlife3463d ago

anyone who pays for themes is a fool anyway...it's easier and better just to add pics from your PC

but you don't have to pay for them...it is an option and there are more than plenty free ones added on a regular basis

same goes for gamerpics

RoarrrUK3463d ago

No one is claiming xbl doesn't have free ones available, it's just the principle and more to the point the dev diary. Surely it's an error that it costs money to watch, its not DLC.

Dead Space Dev Diary #1
150 Microsoft Points
what a joke

cliffbo3463d ago

yeah... it seems some posters here are trying to avoid the obvious. themes, interviews and everything other than games related stuff are FREE on PSN... you are paying for things we get Free and paying $50 a year for the privilege. WOW, you really have to be a fanboy to take that

outlawlife3463d ago (Edited 3463d ago )

14 cents a day won't break me, i've been paying for live since it launched on the original xbox and i never regretted it and i'm sure i'm not the only one

so what the PSN is free, if people didn't enjoy live then nobody would pay for it. It isn't the matter of being a fanboy it is the matter of enjoying the service that is offered.

if somebody pays for the deadspace trailer...its because they want to, it can be found multitudes of places for free but people still buy it

just like any other video that is charged for

its kind of the same idea as filesharing, you can go buy the cd or get it free online, some people will choose to pay...others will not

just because PSN is free doesn't mean its better than Live, and just because you pay for live doesn't mean it is necessarily better than PSN

but I very much prefer live, and I'll continue to pay for live until i choose not to

as for a deadspace dev diary?..i'll pass on either service free or not

it's all about choice and user preference, just like every other xbox article on here i don't understand why people come to tout the virtues of PS3 and PSN when it is all personal preference, all consumer choice

it's not going to change anyone's mind and it doesn't prove your console of choice is superior to anyone elses

and now I hereby declare I'm a fanboy....of super nintendo, who is with me? together we can get the SNES to win this console "war"

XBL doesn't have Qore.

cliffbo3463d ago

but Qore is an Online magazine... and it's into it's 3rd publication. you can hardly use that and compare it to a situation 360 owners have been putting up with for TWO years! we still get stack of FREE stuff all the time... i just think it's strange how people keep supporting MS on this strategy. if there were two shops, one offering Burgers at £3 and chips at £1, and a shop opened across the road that sold Burger at £3 and the chips are free, you wouldn't carry on paying for the chips simply because you originally paid £15 to get exclusive access to it... you'd say 'sod that' and go across the road.

outlawlife3463d ago

not if you didn't enjoy the cheap burger

which brings me back to my earlier point, it is preference
