dailygamesnews.com - Xbox Europe boss Neil Thompson has revealed just how blown away the team is by the reception of the Sky launch on Xbox 360. To say he's 'happy' would be a little understating...
That's such a great news 360 is going strong Good job MS
Got to love the 360. Nothing else comes close.
You two are sad.
@1.3 - It's the same person with multiple accounts.
Do you usually talk to yourself?
its really sad people feel the need to do that for such trivial things like games consoles i honestly could not bring my self to do that unless i was getting paid...
@ gaffyh LOL multiple accounts...stop the lies On topic please
a guy says this is good for the xbox 360 and then all you say it is sad.. but of course you are the same people who come to defend Sony NO MATTER WHAT. and make all this media is biased bull EVER TIME their is an article with positive 360 news.. in fact you guys are so out of it that even when a sony game is praised by all, you are still pist because it is not enough (E.G. all the sony fantards bi#$ching about UC2 getting 9.5 instead of 10) you talk like if you were so superior and smart about the fact you own a playstation.. wow.. yet you also paint yourselves as victims. it is truly amazing, and perhaps even sad
Lol this kid is a complete troll and has been caught replying to his own comments before. Not sure if your talking about the deleted 1.2 comment but i see nothing bashing the 360 in any of the replys to this comment, your getting worked up over nothing. They are talking about him commenting to himself, and that is sad.
Aha, I'm sorry, but you're just fooling yourself. At least look at the track record of comments. And to those that disagreed: why? Are you that far in denial you cannot realise that live offers more of an amazing service as both a media hub and games provider? The Sky implementation and the likes of Primetime! continue to bash Sony's PSN as they play catch up. This is another example of companies realising the power of online services, just like they're realising the the potential of Natal.
Wasnt there an article a few weeks ago that Sky is thinking of going ot the PS3 too? What's there to celebrate? Look at Netflix, Facebook/Twitter, Braid, etc.
They did say they may bring it to the PS3. Sky also just launched an app that allows you to watch live Sky TV on the iPhone aswell. Sky will bring the Sky Player to any platform they think will give them exposure and revenue. After all, the company is owned by Rupert Murdoch who is a major part of News Corp, one of the largest media conglomerate's in the world. Sky Player will eventually make it's way to PSN imo but for current 360 owners and gold members it is a pretty nice app to have, my only criticism of LIVE is that they are making you pay them an annual fee for services you can access for free on other platforms such as PS3 and PC. I have a Sky+ HD box though so accessing Sky Player on any platform holds no interest for me.
Figures you'd be the first to post on this. Are you getting a bonus from Microsoft for their little spark of hope in Europe? No? Not even a little bit? Not even a free year of Live? Nothing...? Jeez...your comment history almost made me think you work for them...if you're not getting any kickback for all the time you spend praising them i feel bad for you... Dont worship false idols, thats a 1-way ticket to hell ;)
It's not allowed to say positive things about the 360 on here. Sony only. Thought you knew. I also think the Sky Channel streaming sounds cool but I won't say anything cause then the jealous trolls will bash me for it.
Be careful with your words, you do realize you just said the Super Nintendo is better than all three current gen consoles! @Volcane... You do realize that MS and Sony's main focus with these consoles was to make them an all in one device that replaces alot of the stuff in your living room. I don't know if you remember, but last gen, Sony tried to do a set top box that you could play ps2 games on, watch dvd's, surf the internet, etc. and tried to sell it for $1000. Unfortunately, it didn't catch on. So Sony added more internal power, blutooth, wifi, blu-ray and called it the Playstation 3! That's not fanboyism, that is truth, don't believe me look! http://upload.wikimedia.org...
It is awesome, just needs more free streaming TV channels
Congrats! I must say I am envious of you guys. Last FM is cool. But, I am sure I wold have preferred SKY. Maybe later M$ can get us some thing like that in the U.S.
you still have to subscribe to sky to receive it!
there's last.fm on ps3? I really haven't been keeping up.....
wow i never noticed that she was that tall, i could've swear she was a bit smaller.
It just the same type article Sony employees post here with titles like: "Amazing new screens of Uncharted 2" and so on....
that's some lame ass comparison, i pity you xb!tch
You need a sky subscription, you need to have Sky multiroom and you need gold account. Also the picture quality (on High Quality) is crap and it doesn't have many channels. Might as well just buy a set top box and have much more channels and better picture quality.
the quality is ok for SD, would be good if it was in HD I would jump on this if it had more channels. The handful that are available just aren't worth it
You only need sky multiroom for the LIVE channels. We have a standard Sky subscription with the movie channels (no multiroom) and we can watch all of the films on the player for free. It's pretty awesome, found myself using it quite a bit.
and heres me with freeview still lol
Thought Games Consoles was about GAMES??? and GAMING??? Sky is CR*P anyway, endless CR*P channels of CR*P really. I say buy a UK HD FreeSat Box it's much better + FREE(to watch)!!! ;)
BoreZone 2? inFamous? A Tomb Raider ripoff with a c0ck on? While we had Forza 3, Halo: ODST, and will have Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction and Alan Wake. Delusional droids are delusional.
ME2 SC and Alan aren't even out yet moron. Alan may never come out at all. Flopza sucks and ODST is a 4 hr DLC that they bent you over for full price. silly bot.
Actually Ken the 360 has literally blown away many people this year. What a dangerous console it is.
in my eyes sky on the 360 is not so great, i have to have sky TV subscription, multiroom sub and a gold sub and for all that i get less channels then if i just had a sky box and multiroom? and it would cost less?? i'll just stick to TVcatchup, ALL the freeview channels streamed for FREE, cant beat that
You don't necessarily need to have multi-room to get it. I don't have multi-room. You can get it if you got broadband with Sky. I may say it's doing me justice as my niece can watch her programs on the 360 while I am free to roam about on the sky box and I need not pay for multi-room.
okay my bad, didnt no you can replace having a multiroom sub with a sky broadband sub my real issue is having to have a gold sub still unless im wrong about that too?
Lol well that I don't think you are wrong about.
Well they aren't going to come out and say its been poorly received now, are they :-/
That's all very well but then they probably wouldn't say anything were that the case
and the "blown away" phrase? i think in every uncharted 2 review there was literally this phrase used! and now we see it here again :P
Yeah but in Uncharted 2 it was well justified lol
but they should use some other lines once in a while!
Oh well, back to the drawing board Micro$oft
it's a cool app but i'll stick to my sky hd box
ok we get it you wont watch it. Can you please stop sh1tting up the comments with your meaningless downplaying of a new feature? you have literally told us you wont use it twice already
We who are 360 owners get a great service. We who are PS3 owners will probably get the app because of the good reception from the 360 app. I don't own a Wii, but if it's possible, perhaps the Wii may get it too. Competition makes better products for everyone.
"While we had Forza 3, Halo: ODST, and will have Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction and Alan Wake. " And 3 of those game have not come out yet. And you call droids delusional?
Too bad that some of us can't access sky outside the uk :(
Iza got me dis new fangled Facebook thang. But it kinda doesn wurk well. Im gona go back to shoten squarls on my back fence. Dat alwayz works good fun!
i really hope sky can do a deal with virgin media, its much less of a rip off than sky. you need to have a sky subcription in your home and then pay a further fee as well as the LIVE subsricption...GEEZ. people continously backing the xbox are damaging the future of gaming, you only have to look at what sony offers you for free. people with a 360 need to give the playstation a trial run i gauraun-damn-tee that xbox will instantly feel childish.
LesterCorncrake what you need to do is stop being childish i own all consoles ps3 in my opinion is the best one. but cant lie say the 360 isnt amazing and offers some good fetures yes it sucks that you have pay for live but is it so wrong for microsoft make monney from all the people so stupid to pay for live i sure if so many people didnt pay for it it would be free. and to say xbox is destroying the future of gaming is so stupid in couple of years the ps3 will number one console to own have every live has multiplat dev will understand it more so xbox 360 is destroyig anything is somthing to play while ps3 forms in to even more amazing console
