Forbes: There's a new member of the "Not Ready for Primetime Players": The Xbox 360. Microsoft has delayed the launch of "Xbox Live Primetime," its programmed series of interactive games with real-world prizes, until the spring.
Not in PS3 land.(reminds me of the John M. and Sara P. BS)
They'll never be ready for anything,the only thing that's certain with microsoft is their ability to dish out one flop after another in a timely manner
Same was for the Xbox 2 console ..... 60% RROD
Boo hiss. I was looking forward to Primetime.
At least is coming
Thy Silly Little Bot
2008 has been the year of DELAYS, especially on my ps3.
I'm starting to feel like i Own 2 PS3's, Come on MS pick up the pace
MS points or something?
You should expect to receive absolutely nothing.
I believe, not positive, that they did mention at E3 that there will be prizes.
of my fifteen minutes of gameshow fame.
MS want to be careful they don't fall into the Sony trap of promising then not delivering. It just means people get dissappointed and pissed off.... Ive just got a Ps3 to complelte the hatrick of consoles and right now i have to say i am trully impressed with the hardware. The browser has been updated with the latest flash player meaning you can watch movies,game videos and porn : ) Just downloaded Wipeout and it is gorgeous and extremly fast and playable. Played though HS and playing though Unchartered and RACTOD. Also bought GTP. Now anyone who knows me on here will tell you i am far from a fanboy but lean more towards the 360 as a games console but.... But since watching Planet earth br on my hd tv, using the built in browser, playing free online with wipeout and more importantly playing the exc games ive mentioned ive come to this conclusion. Sonys Ps3 is a beast of a machine and i can understand why people on here get frustrated with the inferior multiplatform games that are released. Hs the graphical fidelity, the facial animations, the fighting animations. Same goes for Unchartered and Ractod. I can honestly say ive been blown away by these games and i do not get blown away easily. There is nothing on any other console that looks as good as unchartered, on a high def tv even gears although gears also looks amazing or for that matter hs and ractod. The only problem is that these games as anyone knows are at the mo few and far between with multiplatform games not taking advantage of the Ps3 architecture. Right now i feel that both PS3 nad 360 are worth owning but right now although xbl is still leading the way in the online gaming Psn is not far behind and is free. Home is coming for the psn and avatars for the 360 so we will see how they both change the online exp. But to end i firstly hope that both consoles are sucessful so we get to enjoy the great exc games planned for each sysytem. gear 2, fable2,lbp,Naruto ultimate ninja storm are the ones on my list. Saying that if i had to chose one console to suceed id have to go with the Ps3 simply as firstly Sony are not trying to milk us for every dime we have got. There online network is fully operational and free although not quite up to live yet but gaining ground quickly. It also works as a Br player and internet browser. More importantly guys is that the exc games ive so far played are trully a step a head in graphics,animation and general next gen feel. Honestly for those that are suprised at this comment coming from me i eurge anyone to play these games on a hd screen and not feel the same. But saying that graphics are not everything and to those that want to play the next fifa and madden they will unfortunatlely not care about any of these games. I just hope that Sony dosen't keep trying to change there image making shooting games a focus. There are enough shooters in the world as far as im concerned. I personally hope that we as gamers get to see more games like Hs,unchartered,rac,fable,kameo ,banjo and kazzoie, Mass effect, Lost odyessy, ff 13 and WKC etc etc. HERES HOPING : )
You should seriously try MGS4!
Especially with Live Anywhere. It was such a huge topic, and then Microsoft refuses to even talk about that initiative, though Sony seems to be pushing a similar front quite successfully. Reminds me of DLC. Microsoft did all the talking, but Sony has been much bolder And successful. Where else can you download full-fledged titles like Gran Turismo, Warhawk, and Wipeout HD off a network?
"full-fledged titles like Gran Turismo" Delusional brand loyalty strikes again.
"'full-fledged titles like Gran Turismo' Delusional brand loyalty strikes again." Ok, so Gran Turismo isn't a full fledged game, but you'll admit the others are? What about SOCOM? The quality and size of those games hasn't been matched by LIVE.
Yeah well at least is coming..This was annonced at e3.this not like HOME wich have been in development for a long time and been delayed 10000 times !
Waitbox 360 strikes again!!
delaystation 3 fails to stike again!
Spartan = owned Home LBP MGS4 HS Rumble Uncharted KZ2 Lair Fear Bioshock GRAW2 R6V Oblivon Lost Planet Timwshift The Orange box UT3 (yup was was actualy delayed) in game messaging Slinter Cell DA VF5 Download market place for entertainment and dlc Even the PS3 was delayed and the list goes on and on and on.....
You know you have a sh!tty service if you don't even get in game messaging until 2008. I mean sh!t Xbox original had it...
lol at you sony fanatics. the irony you ppl have i swear. how long has home been delayed?
it doesn't feel good when you're on the other side of the fence, now does it? It's all fun-n-games until it happens to you, right?
I'd rather have one delay than 100 hundred.
DJ no Sony fan has a right to whine about this. Especially with Sony's promises which turns out to be MANY DELAYS
Then no Microsoft fan has the right to complain about any PS3 related delay considering the things that were promised of the 360 and never delivered or delayed. Deal?
what Sony delays ? i cannot think of anything Sony has delayed, i can think of blog sites that say sony has delayed things like home but how can Sony have delayed home when they have never given a release date for it ?
Too Human got delayed, Forza 2 got delayed, Heavenly Sword and Warhawk got delayed, Alan Wake got delayed, Splinter Cell got scrapped and is back in development again, MGS4 got delayed, etc.
uummm, i still have fun and have games :) sh!t happens i know that, it's just that when you see the word delay it usualy has ps3 in there. but its str8 its not like they delayed the whole thing
surely the x-box fanboys are meeting somewhere to come up with another excuse. After they come up with one for the RRoD that is still cripling the system and the lack of games in 09'. Better get to work bots
you troll the internet so you can make up for the fact your a queer in the real world. :)
I must be lagging behind, because I've never heard of this. I guess you can't miss something that you never knew existed.
so are we going to jump on MS for showing that 1 out of 100 game show game.... i wont because i said it was BS when they showed it! I would really like to see ppl try and get a game show game with 100ppl work at all! It was and still is window dressing! Its the counter bullet point to HOME and thats all it was meant to be PS3 has its problems but improving the system over time is not one of them! Can you say the same about XBL and the 360? IMO no PSN has owned XBL in terms of games you can buy and now it is eqaul in terms of features...and its free
or the continuing of the delays.take your pick. 360 fans have bashed sony for "over promising and under delivering." but here we are,microsoft promising things and not delivering. talked about IPtv-haven't delivered.sony delivered in europe playtv. talked about live everywhere-haven't delivered.sony delivered remote play with psp from anywhere. talked about prime time-haven't delivered.sony hasn't responded....yet. talked about digital downloads-haven't delivered.sony delivered gt5,siren,warhawk,socom,wipeou t,etc.,as full digital downloads.and some of these games are also retail games. both systems have had delays.i hope you 360 fans now see that.microsoft has beat sony at some things,but sony has beat microsoft at some things in LESS TIME. apocalypse...........
