DerangedShaman: "When I fired up my 360 today, I was greeted with a cool Bing app on the dashboard. The app features Halo Reach Videos, Walk-troughs and strategies".
Nice, Looks Like More Features On The Way
more like payed features...u saying u getting things for free but ur not u paying for them
That's true. But they're adding more value to the service, so it's still positive news. Then again, internet browsers are free on other platforms, so maybe they're not adding any value. Idk, I canceled my service yesterday.
No Life - When someone is more concerned with what other people are doing and how they spend their time and money because their situation is not entertaining enough. Why do people still constantly feel the need to bash the 360 and repeat the same shit over and over again? Yeah, we know we have to pay for XBL... we are the one's [aying for it remember! Reguardless what you think of it, people see something in it that they like. I have a Ps3 and this may be hard fo you to accept, but besides a few great looking games... the Ps3 has been a letdown for the most part! Yes it started out with cool shit, but has been lacking lately. It used to have BC, but that's gone. Used to be able to use Hulu, but now only Hulu plus. Still doesn't have cross game chat. Interface still looks as plain as the dashboard the 360 launched with. They have no where near the amount of quality games the Ps2 had. You can brag about exclusives, but the Playstation brand was built on having the most games! Having high quality exclusives was more of an added bonus. The 360 lacks in several areas as well, just like the Wii does. But people still see value in owning these consoles. BTW, you guys keep pointing out that we have to pay for online. Sony and Nintendo would have probably did the same thing if they weren't so far behind the 360. Meaning XBL was already a well established brand, so people wouldn't be willing to pay for a different service that didn't work out too well in the past. Sony realizes this and are now trying to get you to pay as well with a service called Playstation Plus! You say you get free stuff with PS+, but you are actually renting. If you stop paying, you lose all your extras. See, they both have their pro's and con't!
I don't see this Bing App on my Dash. Whick country is this guy from?
It isn't a App, all it is a ad to use Bing to find info on Halo Reach to make yourself a better gamer or at least that is what it tells you. All it does when you click on it, is just shows you videos and free Bing themes an some reasons to use Bing.
@ Neko_Mega Yeah, I don't know who the fuck nut is that wrote this article but he's a fucking moron. Games journalism at it's finest. No wonder no one takes the gaming media seriously.
What is bing?
Google it...get it?
well if he doesnt know what bing is, then he wouldnt get it...lol
Bing it will NEVER be acceptable to say.
oh why here it is http://lmgtfy.com/?q=bing
Web browser on Xbox? How much will they charge for it?
Why would you assume Microsoft would charge for it? I'm dying to know.
Because it's M$. Duh!
@AK46 =/ bad logic $ony nickles and dimes everyone hate to say can be said about both companies cause thats what companies do they make money.......capitalism it happens
Cause Fanboys will be Fanboys look they added Netflix Facebook and twitter to add value to the subscription itself. Disagree with me? Own a ps3? Well fuck off.
if it was true, there wouldnt be an "additional" cost, it would just be free for gold members, not so much for silver members
i see you trolling on every article with "microsoft","x box" or anything similar to it. You are such a troll
I never would have thought Jezuz would be such a crybaby. and for the people getting mad at other people for saying how much its going to cost. you know nothing from ms comes free
I am gonna go with $60 a year. I think MS has pulled off the greatest move in gaming history. They actually found a way to charge for services that are other wise free on other platforms. Well they were looking for a way to charge for web browsing ever since the days of netscape. BRAVO MS! Keep up the good work.
In the days of Netscape everyone charged for web browsers. The ironic thing is everyone hated MS and accused them of trying to build a monopoly when they made IE free and included it with windows!
I think the main reason everyone hated MS making IE "free" those days because the only reason they did it was because Natscape said no when MS offered them to become a part of them. It was very well known that MS did it in order to kill netscape. But whatever man . it's in the past now. Personally I have no problem with them adding all those services to their Gold subscription. I just think it's freaking genius that they found a way to charge people for services that are other wise free on the PC and PS3. Granted the PS3 web browser is not that good but at least it's free.
I'm not sure if I sense sarcasm or your serious, but lets assume your serious. Why in the world would Microsoft charge for a browser? Bing on Xbox would essentially generate ad revenue for them. I'm not here to say, "I love paying for Xbox Live" however its kind of silly to think they would be so dumb to lump bing search as a "feature" of Xbox Live Gold membership.
Well to be fair, Microsoft charges for everything but their browser, and the only reason they don't is because of the competition.
cue immature fanboy drivel.
as long as it better then the ps3 browser or else its a pointless feature like on the ps3
No, because It will turn out like the PS3, completely hacked.
LOL @ using a browser on a console. THat's what PC's are for. 360 should stick to games. Oh wait, it has no games.
Lol it's funny how when this generation started, Xbox owners were throwing that at Ps3 owners, and now it's the other way around. Guess it's payback time. Sad for 360&PC owners that that's true though, as Microsoft has pretty much said "ok, fuck the audience we had for 360. We're gonna get the Spider Solitaire on Windows players to join Xbox 360 instead, using Kinect!"
your missing a huge issue the 360 uses a vista core and stripped down os if they add a web browser its going to be internet explore. Not only is internet explore slow and has bad addons but you can get more virus's useing it then any other browser.Your 360 will need a reformat every 5min of use to keep it clean. also dont post the “i use safe sites im ok” bs very very few sites are 100% clean look at hackerbook. seriously this is a bad feature to have on 360.
Okay fanboy fucker who think they'll charge for the browser and the gold subscription.....name a couple features ms made you pay extra for.
And the key word is, "made."
