That's a damn sweet deal. I've got the chatpad, and like it, sending IM too-from LIVE Messenger is a real killer app.

This deal is old as hell. Just go to www.provantage.com. It's there for less money.
FamilyGuy  +   1901d ago
Separate cost?
What's the break down of the cost of each thing individually? This looks like an deal you couldn't pass up.

$10 towards xbl content alone is worth the $55.96

Live is like cable. You pay for all these features and use two or three.

What a waste of money.

were you born
with water on your brain? its liek 4 dollars a month... Id gladly pay the 4 bucks for the superior service, than the lack luster PSN. I play mlb 09 on the 360 more than 09 the show on PSN S O L E Y because of the connection errors of the psn.
lloyd_wonder  +   1901d ago
Connection errors have nothing to do with PSN. It's probably the game.

I can easily turn around and say Gears 2 was a broken piece of mess and blame it on Live. Lackluster? I don't pay for anything and play every single game on the PS3 with all the same basic online functions that Live has.

What do you pay for?

What does he pay for?
Probably all the updates that Sony fanboys wish Sony would do for them.

id gladly pay 4 dollars a month, loyd ill tell you why
Friend support on live is easily 100% better than psn (i figured psn would of caught on by now ,but no not really you have a internet browser and HOME...so exciting)

LIVE

-best friend support
-SOON on demand marketplace content....I can see sony crying now saying
"we will never catch up and our service is even FREE"
-1 vs 100....WIN MICROSOFT POINTS AND ITS FREE...buzz tv pssh sony has nothing.
-NETFLIX
-most likely Hulu
-Facebook
-MOST DLC of any console
-Watch movies with friend over internet
-MLG LOVES 360 GAMES
-RROD(yes i have been though 2 console and still prefer my xbox..kinda sad i know)
-updates acctually do something

ps3 been out for 2 years.....friend support with games is utter crap...a crappy internet browser that chuggs along...HOME(really so exciting), a globe so you can see the temp in Africa(who cares), psn is late to the party....psn store took forever to get up...trophies late to the party...friend support still sucks....crappy ports on ps3....still expensive....long and frequent updates.....game installs to make load times 0.60 faster....pointless>>... .they are considering some of the best games on the ps3 don't need installs..'

-best friend support- What the heck is that?

-SOON on demand marketplace content....I can see sony crying now saying "we will never catch up and our service is even FREE"

On Demand? lawl. Sony has had full retail games up on the PlayStation Store since 07.

-1 vs 100....WIN MICROSOFT POINTS AND ITS FREE...buzz tv pssh sony has nothing.

Lol. I'm suppose to be jealous? What relevance is this to your gaming experience?

-NETFLIX

You have to pay for? Coming to the PS3 also.

-Facebook

I got Facebook bookmarked on my PS3 browser. Works great, just like Twitter and Youtube

-MOST DLC of any console

timed exclusive like all 360 games(Fallout 3)

-Watch movies with friend over internet

Lol. How cute.

-MLG LOVES 360 GAMES

And? No one respects professional gamers. lawl

-RROD(yes i have been though 2 console and still prefer my
xbox..kinda sad i know)

And M$ loves pimping you

-updates acctually do something

Yeah. Like cause errors and brick systems. lawl

I recently got an xbox 360 and bought a 3-month xbox live card and I can say that I'll definitely be renewing when my 3 months are over to a full 1 year membership. It is awesome.
mrblacknut  +   1901d ago
Perfect timing since it is time for me to renew and I get a extras for the same cost of 12 month subscription.
JustinSaneV2  +   1901d ago
Price Comparison (as per Amazon)
12 Month Live Card = 44.96
Wired Head Set = 19.99
PGR4 = 19.99
Messenger Kit= 24.99
800 Points (if a card existed) = $10

Total individually = 119.93
Total bundled = $55.96
That's $63.97 saved.

Definitely a nice deal if you're looking into the aforementioned products.
killnotic  +   1901d ago
Damn It!
And of course I just renewed my Live sub. Uhg. Been nice to get this deal a week ago.
Troll-Killer  +   1901d ago
So?
I just renewed mine in May (same as the last 6 yrs. acually), but I still jumped all over this. I'm trading PGR4 at GameStop, and using the $10.00 on Amazon Live Marketplace...and I'll sell the chatpad and headset for cheap. I'll still come out cheaper than the $39.00 I just paid Amazon for the 12+1 Live card, and I'll have the upcoming year of Live taken care of in advance.
Jockamo  +   1901d ago
I recently got live with that last 1 month for 1 dollar deal...
...this sounds like the perfect follow-up to a year long subscription.

I did play 1 vs 100...haha, i suck, but it was fun.

Someone needs to tear me away from netflix streaming, though...good lord it's addicting.
MriownBOTH  +   1901d ago
it is isnt it lol. freaking csi south park excellent movies hero's etc...addicting soon we will see more power unleashed by LIVE
