Everyone likes free stuff.
just 2 months
what a joke
My friend and i have been playing over live and he didn't have an account so we made one ...and got one months subscription free... after a month it happened again and again... it works all the time...
i have like six gamer profiles one is mine ...and the other five are my friends.. every time someone comes over to play on live they make there own account and we play..
u my friend are M$ big hype
Microsoft say they have 11 million live players
Point u are like 75% of x box live with 3+ accounts
I have done this a lot of times ...i don't know if it works outside of India but it does work disagree all you want but i am not lying...
and yes i would love it if the xbl goes free... as many people have said that Microsoft can get all the money it wants from sponsors or what ever means they find ... i know 40$ a year isn't that big an amount but wouldn't u like something if its free...
I am a big XBOX360 fan and wanna have a PS3 too i don't give a damn about what other people say i am a gamer ...although i cant play much but i wanna play all good games
What I know is that it works three times in total. And hey, don't you want to keep your friendlist attached to one account?
You can't do this as many times as you want to. There is a limit per console.
IS THAT IT!!!
Shame PS3 Or as i can say PSN gives u a lifetime free membership
Marry Christmas all and welcome everyone who got a ps3 for x mas
Who ever dissed me i bet you got a x box
by the way its 2 month free then £50 a year
and u do get laggy peer to peer games
unlike ps3 games u get dedicated servers and even in the peer to peer games there is hardly any lag at all
yet a better service have u seen home yet ?
Still to come
Again welcome to PSN a Free better service
Shame most PS3 games have broken online features or none at all.
Remember Virtua Fighter 5?
Nice. A free network with no ingame XMB and no real community feeling!
Sony is promissing online gaming in the GT series since part 3. You may hope they have integrated it with GT5, or you have to wait to GT6 releasing in 2010
PSN does'nt have the scope and functionality of Xbox Live, though. Not as many arcade games, demos and dlc. Not as many options etc. There are much more games on the 360 that support online as well.
I'm counting on 20 disagrees on this comment even though it's all facts.
What a retard...Teh Cell...lol.
It's Merry Christmas, not Marry Christmas Dumbass!
The Ps3 doesn't have lag issues cause no one's using it!
And if anyone on this site got a ps3 for x-mas, they probably won't want to play with any of the fanboys on here anyway!
Ps3 fanboys like to say the phrase, "Just wait!", O.k. I got one for you... "Just wait until there are enough people playing online, and watch the lag issues pile up.
I don't understand how you can love a piece of machinery so much. I like all 3 consoles for different reasons! I like the features of the 360, selection of games, and the controller mainly! I like the Wii cause of the familiar games like Zelda! I don't have a ps3 yet, but I like a couple games on there as well! They still need a few more games "I" want to play on ps3 but otherwise the system is cool. I still hate the ps3 controller, but I guess I just gotta get used to it again!
There's no reason to hate on one console over the other. They both have positives and negatives. I have always liked having all 3 systems, cause they all offer something different... Maybe you should try it as well, and let go some of that hate!
^"I"^ I put the focus on games that I am interested in, and not the games that fanboys are going nuts over.
ha ha ha i take u don't play war hawk or fall of man
I play COD 4 constantly, and I get lag all the time. Zero lag on PSN is bullsh*t.
FYI: Warhawk is boring and RFOM blows c*ck
r lying.....i know you are because im on there everyday with no lag
Im lying? LOL are you serious? WHY would I lie? My G*d you fanatical droids are such douchebags.
quit doing wack shyt to play .thats for people who haven't played xbl before .not for people to misuse it like that. fuccing cheap azz broke beechies .STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!before ms stops doing this .
RIGHT.PSN DOESN'T HAVE LAG BECAUSE NOBODIES REALLY ON IT.......
PSN Doesnt have lag cuz there wont be any lag for 3 online games. let 7million users start playing 100 online games and see? Even sitting in UAE and playing with people in US and Europe most of time i dont feel lag. Also d/l is very fast nowadays for gold members and demos d/l within an hour depending on the size. Oh how many demos do u hv btw?
...what a jackass. :o
1.) Neither MS...nor ANYBODY... has ever stated anywhere NEAR 11 million LIVE subscribers. 7 million was the last figure announced, and that is OFFICIAL, from their financial report.
2.) Yes, everyone knows about the "free" PSN. Public transportation is ALSO free...but I'd much rather pay the insurance on my car, and buy my own gas, rather than be forced to ride with a bunch of smelly losers FOR FREE.

Sorry but the smelly losers are more frequent on Xbox Live that PSN and you have to pay to smell (read "listen to") their crap. I find it really annoying to play Halo 3 and have to listen to all the kids crying, shouting and cursing all the time.
Regarding lag... I've played XBox Live and PSN and I can't tell you the lag is about the same. Sometimes you get it, sometimes you don't. Has more to do with network topology than with the quality of the service. All network games will at some times feature some lag. That is just how the Internet is.
I don't think either MS or Sony have a bad service that causes the lag. They both seem pretty lag-free most of the time but sometimes you get the occasional game with more lag than usual or the occasional player lagging when everyone else is not lagging at all.
Dont know i thought once you create an account on the machine, only that account will have 1 month free Gold membership.
cmon now,do you guys really think your getting somthing from M$.hahahaha,you tools.
cant understand why xbox owners pay for that... i mean your paying to get access to pay for more stuff. thats is one of the reason i didnt get the xbox. ( im gonna take a hit for this)
You made such a smart move. Games like PGR4, Hal3, COD4, BIOSHOCK, Mass Effect, Lost planet, Gears of War, Ace Combat 6, Forza 2 mean nothing to you then because you can't play them without paying for gold membership right? What a stupid comment to make. I only bought Gold after picking up halo3. That was after 1 year of offline gaming which i enjoyed btw.
If you left yourself out of a 360 because of that, you ain't a gamer.
Even on 50 Dollars/Euro for a 12 month subscription, that's about one game. One sh!tty game like Lair had that did rip you off.
A fun thing is: I bought two old XBOX 1 subscriptions for 20 Euro each. And those codes also work on the 360, so two years of online gaming for 40 EUro's in total. If you were that smart, you could had it cheaper and have more fun then watching BluRay movies!
Microsoft Action Response Team, he said it was one reason and that was one of my reason. Plus the 33% red ring since all my friends who have 360 cept like 2 have failed on them at least once or more wasting a month of gaming...
cheated and that only proves my point that xbox live is to much to pay for so you went and cheated to get it cheaper
Its ony $50 a year for a good service...The richest company in world microsoft needs that $50 a year from you to keep the service running...maybe they will use that money to add some dedicated servers?
most of my friends have live and we all play about 5 bucks a month aint bad, I have the money cuz I have a job. It's really not that important. If you don't like it don't pay, or try to find a way to cheat, I like having one profile, with all my achievements, and friends. I had a friend who was doing this cheat so I bought his ass 3 months. He was happy.
but how in the world do you connect to xbox live?
When you first setup your 360 it'll give you options to make an online profile or an offline profile. You can also do this in the settings option.
$50 a year!!! Thats nothing. You can demo every new game and arcade game released to the 360, downloaded directly to your console. You can use MSN IM client to chat with your buddies, voice chat with your friends (in or out of a game), and play games online.
Just about ALL games are online, even the arcade games.
The way I see it, take the entire collection of demos, voice chat ability, and the ability to play online... put it on a DVD and package it up for $50. Make it cross platform and it would be PS3/Wii best seller.
Trust me, its worth it. Playing arcade games online is a great way to waste A LOT of time.
