340° on XBL: free to gold subscribers, 3 hours per month for others

Microsoft announced at their E3 keynote last month that would be coming to Xbox Live. Joystiq is working on an interview with key players at both and Microsoft to bring you more details about the collaboration soon. However, they can share one tidbit: today Joystiq spoke with Christina DeRosa, a general manager for XBL, and she let them know who the service will be available to.

"Silver users will be able access what we're considering a trial period of three hours a month, which comes with video advertising. Gold users will have unlimited ad-supported access, so they can use it 24 hours a day. There will also be a premium offering on a subscription basis from, that will be commercial free and will also have more sophisticated personalization features, like Loved Tracks."

The story is too old to be commented.

Gold members FTW

XBox 360 just keep getting better and better.

MGOelite3394d ago

ps3 has vidzone, free to ANYONE with over 10,000 tracks and will be updated and vidzone is currently out unlike last fm

i would call that a win

MGOelite3394d ago

lol at the 4 disagrees, cant argue with facts...

Gamer_Politics3394d ago (Edited 3394d ago )

its always some sony fanboy that gets jealous because XBL is getting all new features

MGOelite3394d ago

lol wtf are you smoking? psn has had this feature for about a month now and its free to anyone, and you call me a fanboy?

MGOelite3394d ago

wow more bots disagreeing facts, more disgruntled fanboys i see

Stryfeno23394d ago

We do not care if you right or wrong...We just won't you to stop making a new account every 10 seconds, Nasim.

Grown Folks Talk3394d ago

I can't use it on my PS3 here in Nebraska.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3394d ago (Edited 3394d ago )

Can you listen to any of that while playing a game Nasim? how about listen to anything playing a game while in constant voice chat with anyone doing anything on the PS3?


Thats because only the 360 can do that

Good for silver members. Give them a taste of the paid version.

Godmars2903394d ago

They could just listen to it for free off of a PC...

And how is that suppose to make 360 owners w/online get a Gold account?

sukru3394d ago

... it's a little bit short. since there will already be ads, 3 hours per *day* would be more meaningful.

MriownBOTH3394d ago

id be upset if so did nothing new to the psn psn e3 announcements make me sad :(

jdktech20103394d ago

Just a thought....maybe they would get Live to play games on or watch movies ....I seriously doubt Microsoft is selling as a live seller......Keep on grasping at straws's getting entertaining

I did not murder him3394d ago

1.1 is being belligerent replying to all my comments in the 360 section(LOOK UP THE MEANING BEFORE YOU DELETE THE COMMENT PLEASE)

Maybe we can listen while playing games on our sound systems who know but I do know this guy always makes efforts to down play 360 news.

xwabbit3394d ago (Edited 3394d ago )

Gewd, sounds nice

Plz i did not lol, ur the saddest person in n4g with ur multiple accounts. You rank #1 in fb territory, He said maybe the truth and asked a question, how is that downplaying it ? Get help bro and click my disagree button how many times to look like I'm wrong ?

Any 1 just needs to look at the first 2 pages of ur comment history to know how bad u have it, try to get all the consoles and enjoy them all instead of choosing just 1 and adoring it, its not rlly healthy.

Edit: must feel nice agreeing with ur self huh lol kid plz. Say w/e u want 2 feel betta

I did not murder him3394d ago (Edited 3394d ago )

Sure fanboy is you say so. He was asking a stupid ass question. he always twists my meaning so he can call me out much like the way you do ;)

"Give them a taste of the paid version." is just part of what Gold members will be getting.

Nothing worse than a troll coming into 360 news and attacking you for making very simple comments.

Ausbo3394d ago

I did not murder him might be a fanboy, but this is a 360 news section so he is where he should be. He isn't like the thousands of ps3 fanboys who troll the 360 news. You would be ignorant to believe he is the biggest fanboy when people are out there saying xbox has no games or that live sucks. Both systems are great and have thier pros and cons

Guitarded3394d ago

if the fish don't bite, the fisherman(or master baiter)goes away.

Bnet3433394d ago

I got Gold so I got nothing to worry about. I honestly don't care about though, but whatever.

IdleLeeSiuLung3394d ago

Cool, 3-hour free for silver and free for Gold.... That's pretty good in my book.

AAACE53394d ago

I kind of frowned when they announced, but now I am looking at it as a way to hear music that I never would have looked at! At a used CD store I go to, they play randon disc, and occasionally I hear something and I gotta get it.

I am hoping will do the same.

talltony3394d ago

will be great only if I can listen ingame.

Raoh3394d ago on ps3

free to all

Godmars2903394d ago

Okay, the disagrees here are just plain stupid.

MriownBOTH3394d ago

yeah it is free.....but sad thing is it crashes all the time....ps3 browser sucks.....and will you be able to listen to music in your crappy browser while playing a game....nope you fail

talltony3394d ago

the ps3 browser doesnt suck. Hello internet on your bigscreen?

Sonyslave33394d ago

ahahahah look at the playslaves lol they trying so hard.

-MD-3394d ago

They are trying particularly hard in this thread lol.

Godmars2903394d ago

Oh yes,

A free service is being dolled out in limited amounts to get people to get a paid service.

If it were a plot hole you could drop the Queen Mary II into it...
