No Home-Like Portal for Xbox Live, "A Nice Chatroom" Says Microsoft

Microsoft has dismissed the idea they're developing their own PlayStation Home equivalent for Xbox Live - they've got their "own agenda".

A chatroom with games and over 16 million users. A chat room that makes millions.

and what company wouldnt want that kind of money.

AAACE54675d ago

If they do anything like this, they will probably just make a version of Second Life for XBL since they bought that company!

ShinMaster4675d ago

So is it more like TextChat and less like Home from PSN?

Galvanise_4675d ago

Whoever disagreed with me is a moron. Everything I said is fact.

Welcome to N4G. Having facts doesn't guarantee you winning any arguments here.

WildArmed4675d ago

You'd figure after 900days of being a N4G-er, you'd know that ;)

I mean people still disagree if you write 'Hello World' xD

mo·ron (môrn, mr-)
1. A stupid person; a dolt.
2. Psychology A person of mild mental retardation having a mental age of from 7 to 12 years and generally having communication and social skills enabling some degree of academic or vocational education. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive.

Ahhh the irony of you using it.

I thought the failure that was Game Room was suppose to be the Home equivalent

edhe4675d ago

Dozens of fully converted licensed titles from the old age vs next-gen aol chatrooms?

Entirely different concepts - first gameroom makes an effort to retain old titles and remind us of heritage whereas Home is a marketing effort.

Very Very big marketing effort.

DOMination4675d ago

Lets face it, HOME has been one of the biggest failures in gaming history. MS were right to sit back and see what happens. They'll learn from Sony's dire mistakes and produce something slick.

ZombieAssassin4675d ago

They make money from it and developers/publishers support it, god it's such a failure....

lodossrage4672d ago

FAILURES don't get continued support for two years and counting. FAILURES don't make profit. These are two things HOME has been doing for Sony from the start. So with that said, how about we "face" the fact that you don't know what you're talking about

palaeomerus4675d ago

Both Game Room and Play Station Home are barely-supported indefensible crap of very little interest to most gamers.

lodossrage4672d ago

HOME barely supported?

Yeah, you obviously either don't have a ps3 at all, or have one and have a high ignorance level due to your own personal dislike of HOME

Vherostar4675d ago

They wont do HOME as they would have no control over it. The thing with HOME is Sony allow companys to have there own rooms and content something MS wouldn't want to do.

i had my ps3 from the beginning 599$ and the 360 from the beginning talk about money well spent on my ps3 it was ..
ps3 599$ 360 399$ plus 100$ for wifi so 360 499$ and since then i have spent no money to play ps3 games online besides buying the game . 360 i have spent 250$ extra to play games online a total of ps3 599$ the 360 749$ .so for those that say 1st gen ps3 owners were robbed think about who really got robbed now . ps3 comes out on top with ps home for free free mini games and free items and its free ,why would any one in there right mind complain about something thats free . try it ,dont like it move on. if u love it play on. it doesnt cost u a thing ... i have all systems and i have to say i love my ps3 and all it has to offer even the free things. unlike ms and thr greedy hands bragging on how much they made and yet they raise the price . if sony is doing it for free y is it ms is jacking up the price . if your a 360 fanboy i dont hate u ,i hate the fact that ms knows your a fanboy and will pay . soon it will be time for 360 fanboys to standup to ms and shut thr greedy hands down and give back to those who support the product . ps the more they lose ground the more they will get from the loyal fans to keep them above there pocket. ps its good to be a fanboy but open your eyes to those who stab u in the back instead of saying thank you for your support .. thats another reason that i love sony they do say thank you from time to time ...

That big button on the far right of your keyboard is called "Return". Its useful for breaking up walls of text into readable chunks.

Once you master that then we'll look at starting your sentences with capital letters.

And what about Xbox Live Game Room then Mr McGill ? You need to sort out your own house before commenting on others.

Father Murder X4675d ago

We all know how successful Home has been!!! LOL In fact I had completely forgot about HOME until I read this. I have a Ps3 and HOME is crap and always has been. I haven't been in there for over a year and a half. If MS decides to copy it you know that its going to be awesome. Say what you want to about MS but they know how to make money!!

DigitalRaptor4675d ago

What utter crap are you talking?

Nicaragua4675d ago

Its hardly utter crap to not like Home. I love my PS3 but i think Home sucks, i'd just rather be spending my time playing real games than queuing for poker.

ScentlessApprentice74675d ago (Edited 4675d ago )

Is that really due to the quality of PS Home, or is it really just because you don't have social skills and don't have any friends?
