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.

HarryM4889d ago

This is news you fanboy..

lelo2play4889d ago

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?

Silly gameAr4889d ago

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.

dizzleK4889d ago

the rumours of the 360s death were greatly exaggerated.

Blacktric4889d ago

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.

HaVoK3084889d ago

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.

MorganX4887d ago

Given the ridiculous number of XBL vs. PSN/PS+ articles, I think this is relevant news for this site.

ChronoJoe4889d ago

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.

0oAngeluso04889d ago

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.

ChronoJoe4889d ago

Oh really? fair enough.

Phil Spencer Talks For The First Time About The Price Of The Xbox Series S In Brazil

After about a month of silence from Microsoft, Phil Spencer, commander of the company’s gaming division, spoke for the first time about the sudden and inexplicable price increase of the Xbox Series S in brazil.

The current official price for the Series S in Brazil is R$3,599. During the last Black Friday, many retailers like Amazon and a local one called Kabum sold the PS5 Disc for R$3,440. The latter reported that they sold the equivalent of the height of 10 Eiffel Tower of PS5 consoles on Black Friday which people are speculating is somewhere between 3k - 7k per tower or 30k to 70k PS5 sold by one single retailer during the sale period.

Meanwhile no news about sales of the Xbox Series X or S. The latter did get into a sale as well, but the sales price was still 25% higher than the price that the console was commonly found before the price hike. Whereas the Series X did not get any significant deals during the period.

Before the price hike and the sales, the PS5 had 18% whereas the Xbox Series had 14% of the Brazilian gaming market (PGB report 2023). But I'm curious to see how the numbers will be for the 2024 report.

Frankly I wouldn't want to touch the Brazilian market myself. Female players have been murdered because of gaming over there. The country has a huge issue with handling masculinity online way more so than anywhere else.

I'd gtfo of any association with that sorta terrorism.

jznrpg10h ago

Bad things happen everywhere that does not mean everyone is guilty. Why do people think this way ?

Dabigsiebowski10h ago

Uhhh I guess it's been suppressed but do a little research as to how many female gamers have died in Brazil... anyone? I'm not saying it's gaming's fault, ots the fault of the culture there. Facts

"Stuart explains that Xbox's mission is to bring its first-party experiences and subscription services to every screen that can play a game.
That means smart TVs. That means mobile devices. That means what we would have thought as competitors in the past, like PlayStation and Nintendo."

Third party train has arrived in the station. Ready to depart console business when next gen happens.

Basically microsoft is ditching xbox asap and going all in with gamepass

crazyCoconuts5d ago

In the article I feel they de-emphasized GamePass as being their sole focus. Still interested in selling using traditional approach as well.

S2Killinit5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

Xbox fans are going to get what they kept cheering for despite other gamers raising the red flag and warning them at every turn.

**Although you really cannot believe anything MS says. Literally flipping every comment on its head has often been a good indication of the truth when it comes to MS.

"Basically microsoft is ditching xbox asap and going all in with gamepass"

You delusional bunch never get tired and got yourselves disappointed.

We been hearing all this "Xbox is going to leave the console business and go full third party" bs since Xbox started to release its games on PC.

And yet, both Playstation and Epic are getting a total of zero Xbox first party games while a next gen Xbox console powered by hybrid technology leaked by FTC documents is already in development to be released in 2028. XD

So you people can be mad as you want, but those are the *facts*!

Quit the port begging already, because Playstation ain´t getting no games from Xbox in the foreseeable future. Period!

Do what you do

Lightning774d ago

Lol you mean this Tim Stuart.


Where he alluded that Starfield and other Bethesda titles could arrive first or "better on Xbox" which ultimately never happened. He's a business strategist he doesn't have final say. He formulates business plans and strategies and suggestions. Phil has final say in these things. Games like Minecraft and certain Bethesda games Deathloop and Ghost Wire, COD and a few others will get support on PS and Nintendo of course. This is no sign or indication of third party for all its games I know you guys are twitching for it hard tho.

Because of fanboyism.
