Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox Live 12-Month Gold Card and Xbox Live 1600 Points Card for the Xbox 360 ranked in the top three sales at Amazon.com this week amid a new game accessory sale.
So this is "breaking news"? There's got to be something worthwhile going on in the gaming world that you guys can tell us about.
This is news you fanboy..
This is were a big chunk of money is... accessories, live, MS Points, etc.
I figured it was Gaming news. It's certainly good news for them and for fans I guess. Not seeing the issue. Now I saw some stories today like the one saying their was a problem with the Wireless N in the new 360s, when in actuality it was a problem with people's routers that was sketchy IMHO. This however is gaming news and I see plenty of chart news when something Sony or Nintendo is in it. So why not Microsoft too?
Good points. I see the same articles you see when I'm on, and I think they're pretty pointless too. These articles are created for a reason I guess. May your pee stream travel far my friend.
the rumours of the 360s death were greatly exaggerated.
And it shouldn't die. Competition is a good thing for us. Sony pushes for exclusives, Microsoft wants both multiplatform leadership and a piece of casual market and Nintendo is going for both with Wii and 3DS. There are sh*tload of good games available for all consoles and new ones being released every month.
I believe that real news is hard to come by on this site.
Fans of this site rather create news not report it. They pick topics written by another fan who thinks the same as they do. They post stories that suits their personal agendas. No matter how out of context they may be. You would be a fool to take N4G seriously. I just pick through the trash and fanboy crap and once in awhile I learn something new about the industry. For a more objective opinion I visit Destructoid, Joystiq, Kotaku, Gamesradar, and my favorite Epic Battle Axe.
Given the ridiculous number of XBL vs. PSN/PS+ articles, I think this is relevant news for this site.
Microsofts cards are always in the top 10 on amazon, even normally. I wonder why people buy cards from amazon though, y'know. When they're paying by card there anyway, I buy cards from a physical store, with hard cash. But why not just buy the MS points/subscription directly from Microsoft? Ah well.
I've gotten them as cheap as $25 there before. Which is like half off what Microsoft charges. So it's a cheaper way to get live. I usually stock up on them if I see them that cheap.
Oh really? fair enough. Thanks.
I contributed to that number. 'Splosion man and Trialz HD, here I come!
