Just when you think Microsoft has pulled every trick out the book in atempts to win the Console Wars this quarter, it seems like Microsoft may have a couple of trick plays in there playbook. Read on after the jump
I agree, I would love to see sirius on 360. Great stuff mate!
how many people would pay extra for this?? not many since most of the 360's fanbase is kids and teenagers... what i really want to know is how come Sony doesnt use the satelite radio they have on their PSP and put it on the PS3 only makes sense right?
This was one of those rumours that came from VGChartz (the one about 12 new titles to be announced September 25). So hopefully if this is true then those rumours are true. Although I don't care too much about Sirius.
sorry but x360s fanbase is mostly 16 and above. ps3 is the one with the teenagers. you clearly havent played on live if you dont know this.
parents dont really rush out and buy PS3 for their kids cuz its expencive but most kids i know own a 360 not a PS3 while most people i know that are my age 21 own a ps3... but that is just in my city so i dont know really what its like everywhere.. but there are countless stories on the internet of obscene racist anoying little punks that are on x-box live you dont really hear about it that much with PSN
actually they did a study and xbox has the youngest crowd. this is also apparent by going on xbox live where you will be greeted with hiphop music and children yelling insults. ps3 has the most adults.
If using nothing else but price it would lend to the fact that the PS3 has a younger fanbase. It's usually the younger generation that whines about paying 50 bucks (not all) for live. This is because they simply can't afford it. While older people can see it for what it is. "A drop in the bucket." Anyway, my vote goes to the PS3 having the younger fanbase.
I think it was during the E3, but it could be older. You need to have a Sirius account and a Live account. That's serious money just to listen to radio. It's a great news for people who already have both account, but I don't think people with Live account will want to pay more yearly money to get Sirius. And I don't think that people with Sirius account will buy a 360 and want to pay $50 a year to listen to some music (with noise coming out of the fan) when you can buy a $29 gizmo and connect it to your sound system, and listen to it, background noise free. So overall, it's a great news for the 27 people who are already paying both accounts. Otherwise, this is not the type of thing that will generate sales.
exactly my though. why do you think every multiplat game sells more on 360? because 360 owners have expendible incomes. in other words, people that have jobs. and yes i do have a ps3 but i have no idea how old the poople are on there because nobody ever has mics. although lol, on XBL you can always tell if theres a little kid playing IF they have XXx example xXX around their gamertags or if they have example69 . it always is like that, all people with 69 and a ton of X in their gamertag are always kids.
@1.8 the bratty teenagers get their push over parents to buy them games clearly.
You still need to pay for Sirius and I can already do this with BOTH XM & Sirus already....tutorial below from the PS forums but it should work for the 360 as well. "How to get Sirius Satellite radio and XM streaming perfectly on the Playstation 3. First let's start with the list of what you'll need to do this. 1. Tversity 0.9.10.7 or later 2. Usirius or UXM (A special thanks to http://www.millardsoftware.... for putting together these two great applications, for without these applications this would not be possible) (Also I'd download and archive these programs now since this site has not been updated for 5 months, no telling when they'll just disappear) 3. A dedicated computer server to run Tversity Any Vista or XP machine will do 4. An active Sirius or XM online account 5. Sony Playstation 3 update 1.80 or later Now how to get all these stuff up and running First you want to install Tversity, instructions on how to get this program operational are all over this message board and detailed instructions can be found at Tversity. One setting you DO want to change specifically for Sirius and XM is located under SETTINGS > INTERNET FEEDS > under FEED MANAGER, make sure you change the number of items to show per feed to either infinite or something more than 150. If not, you will only see the first 10 XM or Sirius channels and not all of them (this part frustrated me for hours and little did I know it was a simple setting in TVersity) Vista users: I was surprised to find out that you DO NOT need turn off your already existing WMP media server, Vista can run multiple media servers and the PS3 will have no problem picking up either one, simultaneously. I'm not sure if this is the case for XP. Secondly, install Usirius or UXM and enter your login/password information. Now click START to start the USirius or UXM server. Click URLS and then click FEEDS make sure the pull down tab says ALL CATEGORIES and then copy that URL to the clipboard (it will look something like this http;//192.168.1.101:19080/fee ds/lineup.xml?bandwidth=high&am p;r=1186072387) Next, go back to Tversity and click the green plus arrow to add a PODCAST/RSS FEED. Paste the URL you copied from Usirius or UXM in the AUDIO FEED field. Under title type SIRIUS or XM. Click submit and save your settings. Now just go to your Ps3 and open your TVersity media servers, under internet audio you should see your Sirius or XM channels! It may take a few seconds for the audio to get going after you open whatever channel you want to play. Plus with TVersity you can pause, ff and rw your satellite radio on your PS3!!
Oner: The 360 has been able to play it for awhile as well but what makes this unique is that you can use them as custom soundtracks while playing games. I don't believe either system allows for that right now. (if this rumor is true)
People still listen to the radio at home? I might listen to it in the car but that's about it. I can pull in tons of stations on my PC. But why? I would rather just download music that I know I like.
He thinks Xbox 360 owners buy more games because they're older. Does that make you sound like you have a bigger wang, solidsnakus? What the hell does "expendible" mean, or do you mean disposable? Yeah, for someone the age you are prettending, you surely write like a junior high dropout. Anyway, the only reasonable explanation for Xbox 360 having such a high attach ratio in comparison to PS3 is that PS3 costs more and can play other formats aside of its own games (PS2 still has many good games worth playing, PSOne games are also vast to be ignored, Blu-ray looks awesome), has been less time on the market, achievements drive sales of games, and Xbox fanboys were evidently starved of games after the first Xbox had either sh1tty exclusive games, and the good ones were available on PC. Which is why they'll buy anything that comes out on 360. Kind of hypocritical though, considering Mart and his henchmen love to sing the "AAA GAMES = 9.0 METACRITIC LOL" chorus. I guess they only do it because they know PlayStation owners are used to playing quality games; what they don't know is that true gamers don't care about a number if they really want to play a game. Maybe when they grow up they'll realize...
Crab that was inherently understood. I am just pointing out that if you really wanted to have access to Sirius or XM on your console that it is available. I personally don't think it is that big of a deal if the only real added benefit is to have access to it when in game. But I can understand it is a nice feature.
if sirius works in game, that's gonna be pretty cool. obviously you have to pay for sirius, but then you have it online and, if you have the setup, in the car. not a bad little feature. not sure why you'd try to knock them for adding extra features....unless you're a noob fanboy who's incapable of admitting his anti-system has some good ideas.
...but I already have it through my cable. With Netflix and now Sirius, Microsoft are providing services that have already have viable alternatives. These aren't system sellers. They barely sweeten deal IMHO.
The attach rate on most multiplat games FAVORS the PS3! The fact that X360 sells more on multiplats is because it currently has a little over 5 million more hardware units sold (due to being out a year earlier). The fact that it doesn't sell a large amount more despite having 5 million more hardware units...its pretty simple math actually, too bad you couldn't figure that out.
Sirius is a cool feature, wouldnt use it much but I know some people will. Classic FM and COD4 FTW ;) (actually that could work, Apocalypse Now stylie) "Read on after the jump" is in the actual story? What jump? I'm already on your page. Was this written for the purpose of submitting here? (image ripped from Ars? Remove their watermark at least)
Let the holiday massacre commence.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAHAHAHHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!! Zerodin,is that yoooooooooooooooooooooooou?
no, its PP and GOTY 2007 and ziodildo on topic: hahahahahahaha...breathing... ahahahahahaha ok this guy who wrote the article is a bot and he cant hide it, i heard this before when halo 3 was launched, they said ps3 is finished and 360 had put the final nail in the ps3 coffin and ps3 out sold it that year with almost twice the price of the 360!! he didnt mention that ps3 exclusives r mega hit games and 360 exclusives r average games!!! also he didnt mention an AAA game for ps3, that is WipeOut HD!! and also HOME public beta will be released this year!
Awesome! Since Sirius and XM have merged, does this mean I'll be able to listen to Opie and Anthony on my Xbox? This rules!
woopy F&%$*#g do... i can Surf for PORn with PS3 can your Xbox 2 do that?
hey [email protected]: have you heard about internet radio? wake up retard morons, slap slap slap! lol
"rumors are already circulating about the mysterious Xbox event September 25th, with the possible announcement of a free Halo 3 map pack, preview of GTA IV DLC and the partnership with Sirius XM satelite radio. Rumor has it, you will be able to stream Sirius radio on your Xbox without any other hardware, while playing games. If this rumor is actually true," hahaha,Xbots Surviving on Rumors
XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!
xbox [email protected] make me laugh - WHO CARES but little kids, to be honest, when I am playing a game, I am rarely paying attention to the music. MS is just like Bose - horrible crap through great marketing to suck all the blind losers in
According to data provided by Famitsu publisher Enterbrain, the Xbox 360 has outsold the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii in Japan for the week ending September 14. At a pre-TGS event Microsoft announced the price of the Xbox 360 would be reduced in Japan on September 11, coupled with the release of the Square-Enix exclusive RPG Infinite Undiscovery, the Xbox 360 has landed on the top of the console charts. The sales breakdown from Enterbrain looks like this: Xbox 360: 28,681 units Wii: 27,057 units PlayStation 3: 8,050 units
Let us take this time to Reflect on a few things
Are you lost droid? It seems all of your droid entourage has left because of this good news... LMAO at this pathetic little troll trying to find his way home.
Number 1,the Flops that led to the Consoles Downfall; Too Human,Infinite Undiscovery,Two Worlds,Ninja Gaiden,Yaris,Blue Dragon,and Lost Odyssey.
what is Yarris is like some kind of cars hey I think from Toyota am I right?
Number 2,the reasons why the Console Failed to Float in the Rivers of Success; Playstation 3,Red Ring Of Death,HD DVD,lack of Hi-Definition Visuals,lack of a Hard Disk,lack of a Free Online Service,lack of First Party Support,limited 3rd Party Support,and finally,lack of Metal Gear Solid 4:Guns of the Patriots
It's not going to be free. And since the 360 has always had custom soundtracks what is the point?
I can already have my custom soundtrack the way "I" want it, not by the programming of a "radio station" which is bound play something you could really care less to hear.
sirius radio opens up music to alot of music that most people dont really get exposure to, Howard Stern radio ect
needs to show more games than this kinda stuff.. Even though it will be a cool feature it really doesnt do anything for gamers.. I already have sirius on my dishnet work and i hardly use it.. I limewire everything..
Limewire sux broheim. Assuming your security settings can handle all that stuff that comes along for the ride....still can't you give torrent portal a try? -sorry not trying to be a jerk but i used limewire long ago and i remember the headaches and dirty files.
dont be proud of the fact you use that junk lol, why yse limewire when torrents are so much better and safer, limewire is just a great way to download viruses
And finally,Number 3,the outcome of Microsoft Failing in the Console Business; Loss of Consumer Respect and Trust,loss of Billions of USDollars in times of a Recession,loss of Shareholder Support,loss of Business Allies such as Toshiba-Blockbuster-and Gamespot,being Sued by the Chinese Government,Dennis Dyack being Banned from Neogaf,and finally,being Laughed At by Gamers World Wide. I would like to Conclude by Thanking Microsoft for their Failed Efforts,as if it weren't for them,we would never get to Laugh at their Dying Corporation.
Who cares if you have custom soundtracks?? some people still dont have 'em, not everyone's rich enough to buy a computer for every house with a burner...and it gets pretty tirring burning cds just to burn 'em again to the 360, radio FTW~~!!!
You have to be rich to have a pc with a burner? lol
You are dumb. And btw do you actually use a CD to move music to your 360. ever heard of a usb memory stick.
why would you move music to your xbox from your pc to begin with? all it does is eat up hard drive space it is much easier to stream music from your PC to your 360 every time i play i'm listening to a shuffle of my entire library of ~5000 songs....and not one of them is on my xbox as for the sirius thing, if true i'll be all over it i love sirius radio and i gotta have music playing when i'm playing COD4 or Gears
It's sarcasm moron do ya think everyone in this world has 300 - 400 to dish out on a computer with a burner? I dont think so
Anyway back to topic
You can buy external dvd burners you know lol, usb, for like $50, maybe cheaper
You're stupid MastaGT. Not only is a CD burner cheap (<$30), you can just buy a flash drive ($20 for 8GB right now). Plus, if you can afford an XBOX 360, then you can afford a computer with a CD burner, because wouldn't the computer be more important (work, school, banking, etc.)?
Is this for real? Weak
"Holiday Massacre"? Wow... I don't really get all the hype for the "new XBOX experience", it's nothing new. It's a new interface (wow?), avatars (ok?), 8 person "party"... And netflix? So, if you don't usually buy stuff on Live, then it really makes no difference to you apart from those goofy avatars and the "party". The only thing going for Microsoft right now is its ability to cut prices on cheap hardware.
I agree with you 100% xbox users dont need the new 'experience' there is nothing wrong with the current dashboard. You can also say the same things about Home, does anyone need Home? no its pointless.
The 8 person party system is gonna rock. you can go from game to game, match to match easily as a group. Another bonus is you don't have to listen to annoying people on live. It's my most looked forward to feature of xbox experience.
It's been only good news for 360 this past couple of weeks. Good to know the PS3 still has some good competition. This Sirius Radio is a nice add features. Xbox 360 is starting to look more appealing right in time for the holidays.
but oh well as long as no one elses feelings get hurt, The world will keep on turning.
they think the addition of a make over and seriuse raio and netficlx is gonna be the end of the PS3? LOL LOL LOL. silly microsoft, who the hell cares about that. PS3 easily ahs the best game sof the holidays, thast all that matter. its funny how microsoft is tryign to mak eup for the lack of games . and i have a 360 too so im not a fan boy. this is just so obviose that they are trying to cover up there lack of games this holiday season.
"The price drop already has taken a mighty blow to PS3, with XBOX sales doubling since the annoucment [sic]. This should have been the knockout punch delivered by Microsoft, but they kept swinging away at Sony with The New Xbox Live Experience. The New Xbox Live Experience is set to revolutionize Home Entertainment with a set of confirmed features. Avatars, LiveParty (Voice/Text chat with up to 8 people), Primetime gameshows, and Netflix Instant Queue. "With some more features to be announced in the coming weeks, rumors are already circulating about the mysterious Xbox event September 25th, with the possible announcement of a free Halo 3 map pack, preview of GTA IV DLC and the partnership with Sirius XM satelite [sic] radio. Rumor has it, you will be able to stream Sirius radio on your Xbox without any other hardware, while playing games. If this rumor is actually true, it will make the Xbox the best home entertainment deal out there. Does Playstation 3 have a chance after this possible holiday massacre?" Wow, THIS site isn't fanboyish, IS it? Makes me wonder where they "heard" this rumor from. [email protected]: - You're the one that submitted this article. Nuff said.
said the fanboy with Little big planet on the avatar
So you're saying that having that avatar somehow makes him wrong? That's a solid argument...
That there was no source that the article said that they heard this rumor from (usually if there is an unsourced rumor, it would be accepted only if someone else reported it first and heard it from a named group of people). Something tells me this rumor was just pulled out of someone's ass and this site wanted for everyone to believe it was true. Where did they hear this rumor from, why is this the first time any of us have heard that this rumor was "going around." Coupled with this also unsourced notion that the 360 has doubled its sales, why should we take this story (or this site) seriously? Why SHOULDN'T we be reporting this story as fake?
FACTIOD for you.........PS3 is dead last in the console war and its only going to get worse for ps3 this crimbo.Most people have realised the PS3 is the most overhyped and underachieving console ever made and the people that has bought them are 50% fanboys and 50% that fell for the hype and I personally can't believe ppl are stil falling for it, I suppose I fell for it, Now my PS3 just gathering dust with its crappy online play and distinct lack of triple "A" titles.
let me guess u r still playing gta4 or maybe [email protected] 2.3 hahahhahahaha and why is ur ps3 gathering dust since mgs4 has just came out and a lot of other ultra fun exclusives umm let me guess u are either extremely retarded that u cant even turn on u ps3 or u dont own one (i can bet is this one,because u are poor and cant afford one or just because u are 15-17 and u think madden is the best game in the world )
Nice add for some people but I would not spend extra for it.
More gaming features added to the ultimate gaming machine. Wait. What?
GOW2 is cool but Fable 2, Left 4 Dead, Banjo-Kazooie and Lips don't do it for me. GOW2 - is the only millions+ seller out of the bunch. They didnt mention GTAIV DC but that's not yet confirmed is it ? Resistance 2 and Socom are guaranteed million + sellers, LBP has potential to be but still too early to call, and Motorstorm I think may do 500,000. A much stronger lineup.
i think motorstorm will break 2 mill. We sony boys love our exclusives and would pay 159.99 for any of them(ok maybe i exagerated it a bit but you get what i'm sayin)
Original Fable sold over 3 million copies, Original Banjo sold just under 3 million copies....
But R u serious u dont think Fable 2 or left For dead wont sell at least a million? Banjo ill give to u it may totally flop, but packaging the game with when u preorder the comes with the original Banjo for free is very good deal and for only $40 has huge potential. Both systems have great games coming out stop with the dumbass fanboyism its getting to ur head man get As far as if this rumor is true itll be a nice new feature, i for one just listen to podcasts off the net, so this doesnt do much for me but hey its another addition y complain about something if ur not gonna use it for those who do good for them another reason to enjoy their system of choice. On a side note whatever happened to just playing the F$#%^& game now ps3 and 360 r great but wtf wanna give a massage while i lay down these additional features while good just something else to distract me while im playing a game. now i have stupid achievements and trophies whatever popping on screen, music blasting from the game and songs on hard drive, msg's from friends, or hearing some 12 yap over his mic or hearing their own horrible music in the background. Does everyone have A.D.D. turn that crap off and actually enjoy the game ur playing.
what is the tard who wrote this article talking about ,does he live in the same planet as i because Little big planet alone is far better than the xbox 3fixme itself(yes it is still broken otherwise how can so many people upload weekly if not daily videos of their xbox dying to youtube ),and yeah a rumor inveted by who or from where ,let me guess his @ss this is plain [email protected] EDIT :i would like to know who was the tard who desagreed with me and why are u a coward or just an dumb fanbot without good arguments ?? plz let me know if u r retarded so i can stop bothering u
Little Big Planet is a niche title and it is YOUR OPINION that it is better than anything on the Xbox 360. To me the game looks stupid and while I can appreciate it taking user created content to a new level I have no interest in paying $60 what a amounts to a 2D side scroller that I can spend my time building/sharing my own levels. I have zero interest in making games I just want to play them. I am more looking forward to Gears 2 or Fable 2 or Fallout 3 more than LBP. (note: the above is MY OPINION) I've never had any problems with either of my 360's so I have no issue with the hardware. There are still systems with the original chipset in the "pipeline" that people are using and are failing and put that together with just regular failures that happen in all electronics device and yes people still have problems. Anyway, this is just a rumor but if MS wants to add new features then why not? I agree I'd rather have a new game IP announced but as long as MS is giving me games and new features I'm happy. I think the whole holiday massacre statement is just sensationalism made by the author.
