Thanks now give me free live all year...that would be appreciated :P

And before you call me a ps3 fanboy, check my record, it speaks for it self...I have an xbox and pay for my own live supscription.

@awiseman- No need to defend yourself. Paying a yearly fee for XBL is retarded by any standards IMO. And whats crazy is that people still(in 2011) justify it by saying that PS3 sucks...yet these SAME people tend to be the ones that haven't spent more than 2 minutes on PSN.

@electricshadow- Probably because I'm one of the few normal minded people on N4G and I say what I feel...regardless of who I piss off. And maybe also because a certain group find it difficult to accept that a person can be a PS3 fan...without getting emotional when review scores for exclusives or PS3 sales are lower than expected.

And I wonder why you have one bubble...

Coogi2402d ago

Your not a normal minded person if you call people you do not know "retarded" for paying for something they enjoy.

It's called business and if it was ONLY the PS3 people was playing and not the Xbox 360 as well, I highly dough PSN would be free.

And yes I have an Xbox 360 and PS3.

Live is saving me lots of troubles from hackers, as they will be banned from playing online as well as have their console banned.

Right now, w/ all the hacking news out there, I think Live is a good second option...

Getting your phd on N4G for not to clever fanboyism laced in Neutrality constitute normal.

True. No need to defend your comment. If they gave it to me for free I would take it too. But nothing in this world is really free. You always give up some thing to get something. The question is: are you getting what you want, for what you are giving?

@Smok3. I like her big mouth. I there weren't so many kids here, I would explain.

I'd gladly pay 3 times less than what some pay to play DC Universe Online just to not have to sit through downloads of patches and firmware that take forever and have a laggy unordered marketplace like the PSN store. And not having cross gamechat or a party feature, or even a headset, kind of kills the online experience imo.

Shows exactly how much you know.

@DelbertGrady

Updates do take a little longer on psn, but the store is not laggy. I find the store much better laid out and better looking than xbl too. My only problem with psn is no cross game chat which is not a big enough deal to make xbl worth paying for.

I have cancelled my xbl account and only game on pc and ps3 now, why pay for something that is free on every other platform ?

"According to Microsoft mouthpiece Major Nelson" is "mouthpiece" negative? He's not so bad I actually kinda like him, the other lady however, that sometimes presents the videos with her big mouth and hop step is just unbearable.

IHateYouFanboys2402d ago

"mouthpiece" just means hes the voice of Xbox Live, its not a negative thing. when something happens on Xbox Live, Major Nelson is usually the one to announce it.

Kon2403d ago

I don't renew my gold subs since September. Too expensive for me.

RGB2403d ago

Amazing, seriously guys you get a few free days of gaming with no cost to you or your card! Truly amazing!

P_Bomb2403d ago

3 days? That's...not much. Even DCUO gives you 30. Free trial is good, but what's 3 days? Give em a week at least imo.
