Today, there have been rumors that the Xbox LIVE friends list would be extended to 1000 people. This rumor came from Xbox Germany and has since been shut down by Larry Hyrb aka Major Nelson via his Twitter feed, Director of Programming at Xbox.
Knew it. Expanding features of XBLA seems like too much of a logical thing for Microsoft to do.
Would have been TOO convinient - I did not need a 1000 but maybe 200 - 250... FUTUREPROOF!
Wish I was as popular as you. I only have 15 friends on mine... : (
So where's my extra $10 going to? It certainly isn't games.
you actually have a 360 and are currently paying for LIVE? Let's see? What kind of a person purchases a product and then proceeds to bitch about it incessantly?
The kind of person that is unhappy with their purchase. Give me a harder question!
complaining about another person complaining?
What kind of person complains about other peoples issues? What kind of person complains about a product they don't own or care to buy? What kind of person buys something complains about it, but continues to use it? In all cases, it's the person that is the issue, not the product! Maybe it wasn't for you.
If he's unhappy with his purchase, that's one thing. But when someone tries to make other people who are satisfied with their purchase feel bad by trolling, then that person is an asshole. Just because you're not happy with your 360, doesn't mean other people are not. You self-centered trolls need to get the fuck off this site. If you feel like shit, too bad for you. Life fucks everybody.
Don't complain just to complain. It makes you look like an obnoxious fool. How many fake friends do you need? I have 6 people in my friends list all of which are people that I interact with outside of XBOX Live.
It's a new dashboard design. That's why u pay 10$ more each month.
LOL - I am just saying - it would be nice to have the limit extended.
Who needs a 1000 friend spots anyway? I can see a few people wanting the cap extended, but by 10 times?
I capped out one time. Ended up dropping 40 or so a few months back since most of them haven't been on in ages. I play with maybe a handful of the 50 to 60 I have left. 100 is plenty.
I don't even have 1000 friends in real life.
I don't even have 1
1000 friends really isnt needed but damn give that price hike some kinda justification, other then "we havnt raised it since day one" nothing is worse then a price hike with nothing to show for..
well they had to shut the rumor down for now cuz it was leaked but i bet you we will get that increase in due time
Increase in price or of friend slots? I know that one will happen for sure.
They would rather have more ad's instead.
They'll definitely be doing it, just not with this update. I've hit the cap a couple of times but i've always had no problem finding a ton of people I no longer played online with or spoke to. If anyone regularly plays with 100 people i'd be surprised.
So basically this extra fee is just paying for espn and kinects 'video calls' which you could already do with the xbox cam by the way I wont be using these sooooo maybe you should charge only the people who use them MS? I dont fancy renewing my XBL anymore. dun, dun, dun, another one bites the dust....
No. At E3, the guy on stage said that those features were going to be free with no additional charge. They're raising the price simply because they want more money. Period.
I hope you arent suggesting that is actually any better? lol. Iv just had enough of being ripped off by MS in the past, it used to be I paid because the online on ps3 didnt work but it actually does now so I kind of dont have a reason anymore, even the PS paid online reaps way better rewards, beta access and all that
It's been out for almost 6 years man...........most of our lists are full. Extension please.
"Hey wassup?" "Hey" "How you doin?" "Wait, who are you again?"
With TrialsHD the only way to get custom tracks is if they are on your friends list. I hit the cap all the time and I hate the fact that I have to remove them to add others then I find out that they have new awesome tracks and have to send FR again and then their list is full. This expansion needs to happen.
if ms ask another $5 for 1000 friends will u pay? people paying to have a friend list wow
u really think just because MS charges u 10 bucks more for no reason that u will get anything? no u guys have been fools paying all this time, and are fools again to think u would get more with a price hike. enjoy ur 60$ crossgame chat
To many friends i wipe my list dow to sixty or so still to much 30 is enough for me i probly game on with the same 5 people everyday .
i have two friends on xbl. :(
wow thats hella wack homie ,this should have been done happen wtf is 100 friends i meet more than 100 every 2 days
