GCO: "A rumor has been going around the net that Xbox Live is going free for select games until fall. Apparently that rumor was true."
how many have silver out of 19 mil xbox? just wondering. *reads the article* "For a limited time" they are offering silver. wTF.
.............*wind howls*..................... ......... ......*tumbleweed*........... ....... ............................. ............. (cough..........cough) For a limited time only, experience lag and racial abuse like you've never experienced it before!
but their is a buttload of cutscenes in MGS4. Do not try and convince anyone otherwise. Your first playthrough you really won't notice because it's put together so well. But if you skip them all, then you realize, HOLY CRAP! their are alot of them.
looks like this is the end of '50$ for online hahaha' ps3 fanboys are running low on ammo.
It's temporary. If you're gonna start fanboy fights, at least do us all a favor and have FULL knowledge of that which you speak
i have mgs4.... but mgs3 hands down just ownd it. way better story, bosses, and location,and wasnt 50/50 on cutscenes.
I too have the game and beaten Mgs4 "50/50" cutscences was reviewers way of trying to find something negative to say because it was ps3 exclusive. And Mgs3 was pretty much just like part 4 in terms of the cutscene to action ratio. And yeah, I have a 360 as well as the ps3. So I'm just waiting for someone to try and call "ps3 fanboy" on me
Only for a limited time, AND on limited titles. I'm not sure how many titles offer cross platform play, but those are the ONLY ones able to be played online with a Silver account.
How is 20 hours of gameplay and 10 hours of cutscenes 50/50, where did you learn math?
@2.1 "Did you even read the article?" Erm... did he even read the title...
This is such a win, you can now play ~5 games for FREE!!!!! I'll stick to free online for my full collection.
At least that means people can play UT3 for free. That's worth getting excited for.
"who's the bigger fool? the fool, or the fool(s) that follows him?" OWK fools pay for stuff others get for free (online play)
That's really too bad. I was fixing to gain a ton of respect for the 360, but they blew it again. If anyone wants to start a petition to make Xbox Live free, I will gladly sign and drop my membership. However, if no one wants to do that, I guess I will have to begrudgingly pay to play Halo online.
If gamers really want Microsoft to get the message that we don't want to pay to play online on the 360 then we have to stop paying for it. You can complain as loud as you want and sign all the petitions you want, but all they care about is the money.
unfortunately I have this sneaking suspicion that MS is overdue on announcing a price increase for a Gold accounts, and this might be an attempt to hook people who haven't taken the online plunge before they raise the price. This has nothing to do with fanboyism or anything, this just makes business sense.
thats the only reason why i pay for gold, to play halo:(
in my gamertag bio and motto you'll read "MAKE LIVE CHEAPER!!!" and i've made all my 39 friends put the same thing on their gamertag. maybe u should try that. if enuff people say it, maybe just maybe(or maybe not) they'll listen. but i don't think it'll be free. i'm ready to pay for PSN if it means they'll do it better. online networks are the future of gaming imho(see Valve), and i support whoever does it right. its obvious were MS puts its resources and it's paying off, literally.
what? i thought that Silver was already free? do you mean to say that all those people that argued Live did have a free option were not entirely telling the truth?
BUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... OMG, flashback to when that title was used as "a threat" on N4g... LMAO
yeah i had to laugh at that one. WARHAWK online only done right! SOCOM here we come!
Poor Xbots Poor Xbots, M$ is finally learning, good for them. Poor Xbots
you are contradicting yourself.. but then again.. you are a sony leg humper... anyways... so I suppose temporarily you can't say, "PSN is better because is free"... which means PSN sucks major balls and have NADA against xbox live... it was thrown to the stone age...
Oh wait....... *Walks away*
If there's like millions more liveplayers because of this, it surely would be wise to make it free.. because those new live players would buy more games for free playing = more money. So, maybe in near future it will become free.
I have a Silver account, so I tried to play Gears online and it wouldn't let me. I thought that since Gears is also on the PC I might be able to get in. No dice.
So they get to play some games for free for a limited time, What games does the 360 have that are cross platform? There are only about 3 I think.
Lets see,, um COD 4 ring a bell? Or did you forget that the most played game on live is multiplat? Idiot.
actually halo 3 is currently top played on live...cod4 is number 2 again
You cant play COD4 online free with silver. Read the article before you comment or you will be exposed as the idiot who calls other idiots.
Free or not I really don't care because once Gears 2 comes out and everyone that has had a taste of the free online play will want too pay the $50.00 for Gold.
Well if live every go to free (god i hope) then ps3 and wii will never make a comeback. But for right now i dont see that happing but it is a start with only some games which you can play online for free which are stupid games anyways but we gamers can wish XBOX 360 RULES
at this point they might aswell just make it free or mega price drop if games for windows is free why do we have too pay.
yay! no wait i mean't, geigh!
