Well it`s good for the silver members .

Gamertags3032d ago

To learn what all the fuss is about. Rent a 360, go to a friends house or whatever you need to do to experience what LIVE has to offer. Once you try it you won't go back to any other network.

Microsoft has really step with value for consumers of late. Nice to see. Has anyone seen over at IGN you'll be able to use XBox 360 avatars in Guitar Hero 5?

Time_Is_On_My_Side3032d ago

I disagree I had XBOX 360 longer than my PlayStation 3 and my gamer score has remained the same for years. PlayStation 3 combines PC and Microsoft online features into one network.

Well, I did what Gamertags suggested. I went and played Gears 2 at my brother's house. After playing Gears of War 2 online, I don't really see what the fuss is all about? I mean, it's just glitches and lag. For a price. Now, don't get me wrong, I really tried to like it. But I just couldn't enjoy something like that, even if it's for free (temporarily anyway).

I have not payed for gold for almost 2 years. I just play gears 2 offline. I know me and my nephew will enjoy it this weekend though

Gamertags3032d ago

You are missing out on some great gaming! Live is worth paying for!

Lifendz3032d ago

If you say so. I just wish they had an optional barebones free online mode. I don't need all the bells and whistles; I just want to play games online.

Kushan3032d ago

IS it just for Gears 2? And is it US only?

cr33ping_death3032d ago (Edited 3032d ago )

they could have really used a different game other than Gears 2 and its broken multiplayer to advertise this. i got fed up with it i sold my copy yesterday, and for all you fanboys check out the achievements before you start clicking disagree.....but youll do it anyway soooooo be my guest :)

dirthurts3032d ago

You predicted it.
I do disagree that it's broken. Not perfect by any means, but it's still a ton of fun. My favorite multiplayer game right now. They have really worked hard to patch it up, and it's helped. The new maps rock too.

cr33ping_death3032d ago (Edited 3032d ago )

lol at the disagrees.... its the game i play the most on Live but you have to be one sad pathetic fanboy to not see how broken the multiplayer is. but if you wish to live in denial far be it from me to take you away from your fantasy land :) have a nice day and good luck to all the Gears 2 noobs this weekend :) dirt here understands....its a good game but the online portion of the game is nothing compared to the first Gears.

koehler833032d ago

Well I'm a Silver Member.. so I don't own any multiplayer games on Xbox. Go figure.

darthv723032d ago

try out 1 vs 100. I am betting that game will be open for the free weekend.
