X3F wants to know how much you've spent on MS Points in the last 12 months.
I'll probably buy around 20,000 MS points. Though of late I have been holding off on more XBLA games. I do see some interesting titles coming soon, but most of my point have been spent on Comedy Central shows of late. Loved the HD version of South Park that was free.
is that a good enough answer lol?
you MS fans spend $300+ every year on MS points yet claim the PS3 is too expensive for you?
LOL, that there is the definition of fanboyism.
listen bub, one or two examples out of 10 million is a bit steep for a sane person to consider.
And by the way, I've spent about 10 bucks so far for more than a year.
People spend it on game/movie content. It's different. Also, you should take this as a sign that people like what the marketplace is offering.
1 -- Don't come to an Xbox 360 article and call everybody "fanboys" for purching content off of Xbox Live... That is fanboy behavior.
2 -- By your own logic, if you were to buy anything off of the Playstation Store, then you would also be a fanboy (which everyone here knows you are anyway)
Get a life my friend. Download a movie or something off of the Playstation Store.... or do they even offer that type of content?
Oh, the irony. According to MSPConverter.com, I've spent exactly $599.76 USD on MS Points. Wow.
I have only spent $75 dollars and I have had mine since launch. Still this is got to be making MS some serious money in the end. I wonder how much they profit from each game,movie,tv show, etc. after paying all the fees and such?
probably about 100$.
my kid loves the arcade games:) (ok, so do I)
but I refuse to spend it on any more retro games, street fighter was just too lame.
Pathetic you guys buy stuff thats already on TV in HD. South Park episode was great.. no really south park is cool... NOT!
You guys mise will just bend over because Uncle Billy already has you.
Do you know in 4 years you would have spent $200 (49 * 4) just for..... South Park...
Yea and the Ps3 is expensive..
i got the points with xbox live but since then i havnt had any reason to buy more, all the arcade games i have either played with an emulator on my laptop (including good ones like mario 64 zelda goldeneye and banjo) or i download the demo and realise that they suck nowdays and have aged real bad so dont want to buy them, and we dont have movie downloads in new zealand yet anyway, im happy to wait, if somthing comes up in the future then thats sweet, ill probably only end up getting points when i buy my next live gold pack tho
hmmm now how much have i spend... none! just another MS ripoff, when i have to pay for wallpapers or some stupid avatars, man you can have that all free on the PC, also you can play a big number of Arcade games on emulators...
You will also spend money on PS store games. Stop acting like you do not know what's up. Well maybe you do not know and that is why you hate so hard. You actually can have a free silver membership and download HD arcade games and HD movies. You guys have no idea how happy the majority of 360 owners really are. I see misery loves company. You need to go wait B3yond for you r PS3 to come HOME.
"You actually can have a free silver membership and download HD arcade games and HD movies." you mean like trial demos? :D but yeah you have the one game that comes with the console Hexic...
You are trying too hard to be a smart @ss. For the record a silver Xbox live account has all of the same benefits of a gold account. The only exception in online multi player. Any thing you down load as a silver member from the XBL arced can be played in full. You do not pay for free demos. And why in the hell are twisting the propose of a demo into your M$ is a rip-off agenda.
Lets get this straight. If you want to defend the PS3 you must 1st understand that you are the one who is getting ripped off. You will pay $600.00 just to get the console and that dos not even include a free game. So really Bro back up and think about real life for a minute. Sony is asking you to over pay for the console that truly under performs in every area except HD movie play back. Oh opps you can down load HD movies on your 360. To bad I forgot. Your lame.
And that was for the 1st download for GRAW that cost like half of that. just cnt be bothered spending money on points
Nil....I didnt spend on anything when i had Xbox360.
I've bought all Oblivion downloads - except the horse armor, the GRAW chapter 2 expansion and a few gamer pics...no XBLA games...
Why do people constantly bash things that, to me, they don't really know about? PS network costs to buy things (downloadable games, maybe furniture/items for your "HOME"...) PC costs to buy things (downloadable games, expansion packs, music, movies, and yes even some wallpapers and screensavers). I'm not saying you can't get some of the things I listed for free, (legally, mind you) you can. You can also get some things free on Live. The things that I try and I like, I buy.
i can find everything plus more on my PC for free. There's no need to spend even a buck on some of these things. The only reason why i have Xboxlive is b/c i *used* to play GeOW coop on it and its the best way i know of to download demos for the 360. I'm already paying 40bux for cable and 50 a year for xboxlive. I probably wont get anything from the PSstore either (unless it's newer games like tekken/warhawk). IMO, charging people to play games like contra and pitfall is ridiculous. The Marketplace and PSstore just isn't my cup of tea (unless the stuff is free)
P.S. to the people that are comparing the free PSnetwork to Xboxlive:
that's a bad comparison, while xboxlive does cost money, it offers much more and is much more stable than the PSnetwork (for now). Ofcourse i don't think anyone should really critisize the PSnetwork either (since it recently came out and it's free), some of you PS fans shouldn't just point out that Xboxlive services are "superexpensive" until the PSnetwork has time to grow and upgrade. For xboxlive you get for what you pay for. Start compariing the two when the PSnetwork gets better,larger and more usefriendly... THEN see if the PSnetwork is still free. If thats the case then kudos to sony, if sony never gets there or starts charging alot of money then boo-hoo.
Honestly some of you guys jump the gun way too often.
Gamers are willing to waste money on such crapy points that
is not even worth making in a manufactering plant how low can Microsoft
can go will go even lower they already did a stupid idea XBox Live for $50 and now there expecting gamers wasting gamer points that goe's to show that american gamers are just plain stupid and would buy any thing thats Microsoft related.
