Instead of going after the real problem on Xbox Live, Microsoft sublimely erased the problem... Sarcasticgamer.com examines how Microsoft avoided losing the douche bag's money while still silencing them on Xbox Live.
lol at the pic
One of those guys in the picture resides on our forums.
never gonna shut me up.
Nick thats actually you in that pic? I always thought it was a joke. I take back all the mean things I said about you. Being that is punishment enough XD
PSN/Live is the only place people can get away with saying every name in the book including ni**er, to other people with no consequences, other than being pwned by someone, or kicked...thats about as much as whats going to happen to you. If you did this face to face with someone, a can 100% guarantee you'll get your teeth knocked out. When people start swearing and doing the whatnot, i just mute them, its not worth really getting into an argument, im here to have fun, not swear at you or try to win a argument that in fact has no effect on me. Videos on internet and people I've heard over PSN/Live are really bad, I'm disappointed and fell sorry, more so at the parent who let their kid scream like that over PSN/Live, let alone be playing a mature game.
Agree. While I'm sure many parents are unaware at how much of an asshole their kids are or can be unfortunately there probably are some that are aware and just don't care. Sad that those parents thinks it's acceptable because they think it's only in fun and it's only online. They don't see what it does to the kid on the receiving end of abusers or the abuser themselves and how it can spoil the experience for other users online.
Yea, party system is great but.. long before there ever was the party system you could just mute someone or, the whole room if you wanted.
by giving them kneepads and funding for a website named Kotaku.
Spread the wealth MSFT ;)
Oh, they do. To every publisher that had a game in line for PS3. Most of the time all their dirty money manages to do is postpone the inevitable PS3 release. Oh, or they manage to secure some garbage DLC.
Please feel free to first explain how it is dirty money; follow that up with all the games that were postpone on the ps3 because of the 360, and then finally......name all the DLC content that they have attained through these means. Thanks in the advance for information.
While you are at it, please also show some proof!
1. - Dirty money Term, as in, instead of focusing on taking previous Playstation only series' to the Xbox, flood all that money to you're own first party developers, instead of having to drop them. 2. - Bioshock. The "GOTY 2007" (Not in my opinion, COD4 took that for me) was a huge one. GTA IV would have been Playstation timed exclusive for it not have been for Microsoft interfering with huge checks, and now look at FF13. I'm sure Square decided on that once they saw the blank checks rolling in signed "Microsoft". 3. - I'm pretty sure $50,000,000 merits the loss of SO MANY new innovative I.Ps Microsoft COULD have made with that insane money. But no. They tried getting everybody to buy a 360 for GTA because of some petty DLC. Also another HUGE DLC deal Microsoft dumped trucks of money on was Fallout 3. Oh and a lesser DLC deal would be Tomb Raider. You're very welcome, in advance of course. Oh and the dude above me. E3 2008. Microsoft was actually BRAGGING about (quote) "stealing" Playstation brand exclusives. GTA, Devil May Cry and Ace Combat to name a few. If anything, they will be the end to what we all loved last generation. Real games made for one console in mind, not having to compromise for the other. @ Below me. That makes no sense.
As you can see MSFT doesn't give things away for free. Greedy MSFT ;)
Dirty Money: making you pay to play online(so they can pay for DLC and timed exclusives, yes! you're paying for that), themes(are you [email protected] serious?), $100 for 20GB HDD(WHAAAT?), selling a product they knew was faulty from start for $399?? (anything faulty HAS to be cheap) 33% failure rate? omfg! Games Postponed: FF13, Tekken 6, Bioshock, Lost Planet, Tales Of Vesparia...and I'm sure there will be more..L4D maybe? DLC content: GTAIV(boring imo), Tomb Raider(for a chapter that was supposed to be in the game from the beginning)..waste of money, Fallout3. If you need proof for this, you have been leaving under a rock all this time and that could be the reason why you bought the faulty 360 and not the far superior PS3(YES! like it or not it is! and you know it). To the disagrees, I feel really sorry for you but I think it's time to see the company you are supporting for what they really are, they don't give a sh!t about YOU, their consumers, I think selling YOU a product they knew was faulty, confusing YOU with HD DVD when what they had in mind was Digital Downloads, and the other things a mentioned above, are more than enough proof of this. And before you jump to say that Sony is no different, releasing a reliable product, filled with new tech and thinking about supporting it for 10 years, tells me they care about their company and ME.
they care about ME thx for that
Don't hate.. If you owned a x360 you wouldn't be complaining about any of that you said. And, with the DLC or a new game, lost PS3 exclusive, you would NOT be complaining. And, don't say you would, cause if you do you're an idiot.. Cause why would you complain about the chance to get some more DLC for a game, or a whole new game.. you wouldn't. So, Shhhhhhhh!
lol @ pic
haha its a great pic
Would you make sweet, sweet fudge making love to it? I would whisper sweet nothings into its disc tray while I press on its red ringed navel. Without much effort I turn it on. I have no friends online. It's just me and the 360. Sh!t! A dashboard update. The 360 disconnects from the internet and starts to hum loudly begging for me to shut her up. I detach her connections and throw her on the Cheetos stained comforter of my bed. She says nothing with her backside exposed to me. I feel her openings. They're moist with lust or possibly from the spilt Pepsi on my bed... Turn in next time
Ah, those EYES! Those disapproving eyes Don't look at me. I'm filthy. Filthy little slut *SLAP* I'm so bored. So very, very bored. AMUSE ME *cracks whip*
It's comments like these that make me believe in God. And what the hell he was on when it came to creating humanity. O_O
I AM YOUR GOD!
I'm guessing RROD is a good way to shut up douche bags. WHOAH! RROD was not an accident, it was all planned by Microsof to shut down douche bags!! I had you all wrong Microsoft, nice play.....nice play.
You came on a little too strong there. You'll probably get a few responses from people who can't spot trolling but you really need to work on your technique. Start off subtle and find some anecdotal evidence to support your obsurb claim and you'll be rolling with the best bridge guardians here at N4G.
Dont think there is a much difference in the trash-talk on PSN or LIVE. Got both systems and I always mute everybody (got both consoles)
I finally dived into PSN after waiting for a 360 repair to come back to me...again. I noticed the difference instantly. Instead of having to mute 4 twits before every single match I was muting maybe one guy every 6-7 matches. What a difference. When my 360 finally came back it had one free month of XBL gold which I used but it was already too late. I was a PSN convert and I've never looked back. 3 years of XBL and it was actually Microsoft's own hardware that forced me to try another service and lost them my business. I understand they patented a technology that could sensor audio streams in realtime. Hopefully that comes out soon rather than later for XBL fans. It's already too late to get my business back.
Is a little quieter since NXE. Maybe the douchebags are using the Party Chat too. lol
This is all fine and everything but explain one thing to me. How can someone get suspended from XBL for a whole week when they did nothing wrong??!!!My profile had nothing rude or offensive in just who I was about my kids and wife and where I work, what shows and movies I like.I never message people other then friends on list and never say anything wrong on there. When I play multi I play with friends and we do the party thing so no one can hear us and report us. I got suspended this monday after not being online since last wednight. When I called XBL they would do nothing about it when ask what I did they said they did not know it was another Dept and when asked to transfer to this Dept the answer was sorry they don't have phone lines for this???!!!! WTF???!!! No phonelines how can a service run and other support if it does not work with all Depts and you can't talk to all Depts. XBL has got to be the worst customer service ever!!The only thing I have done wrong is decline all these random friend request I have been slammed with over the last month since I have a gamerscore of 155,000 and these people think it's cool to have someone on the list with that high a score. If you have any explanation to this please tell me.
u`ve just been knock teh phack out. get up and fight w00s
