I just dont understand why ANYONE would trust Microsofts hardware after they farked up so long and hard with the 360. and still never delivered a reliable product. Coupled with their shiatty customer support (fark you LIVE!) and really, I'm not surprised these things are nailed to the floor.

Seriously. I cancelled Live Gold as soon as I could when they lifted the requirement to subscribe just to get Netflix and the other stuff. I don't play enough muliplayer games to make it worth it.

Is this in response to Sony rumoring to have PS4 have the option of letting you share a game with your friend for an hour. I guess if i have Madden 15 and person on my friend list in online and doesnt have it, we can both play Madden 15

Using as example....i dont buy Madden games. FIFA games I skip 2 years in between and thats all the money EA gets from me.

I suppose it's a sign of how out of the gaming world I am that I saw this headline and read it as "Most of the time, Xbox players have to pay for games by the hour, like AOL back in the early 90s."  What amazing progress we've made.

Decillion: They farked up huge on the hardware for 360, and some design choices on the One. And they still trounced the PS3...

Sales - US - Europe - Japan - Elsewhere - World total

6     PlayStation 3 (PS3)  28.59 - 32.98 - 10.07 - 11.71  - 83.35
7     Xbox 360 (X360)  47.31 - 25.27 - 1.66 -  8.81 - 83.05

Trounced in the US, lost badly everywhere else, and lost overall.

... and are in striking distance of the PS4. That says something about Sony too.

19     PlayStation 4 (PS4)  4.26 - 3.50 -  0.66 -  0.97 -  9.39
20     Sega Saturn (SAT) 1.83 -  1.12 -  5.80 -  0.07 -  8.82
21     PlayStation Vita (PSV)  2.00 -  2.63 -  3.11 -  0.96 -  8.70
22     Dreamcast (DC)  3.90 -  1.91 -  2.25 -  0.14 -  8.20
23     Wii U (WiiU)  3.00 -  1.56 -  1.87 -  0.48 -  6.91
24     Xbox One (XOne)  3.52 -  1.22 -  0.00 -  0.36 -  5.10

Yeah, striking distance... Just as soon as they get past the Dreamcast and Saturn.

Sounds like a bogus rumor to me as I don't see the point unless it's for Silver level members to see the possible benefit for upgrading to Gold.  The games rumored to be featured are either current or ongoing free games with the Games With Gold promotion already.  What kind of sense does it make to offer 24 hours free for games that Gold members can currently download and play whenever for free*.

*as long as they remain a Gold subscriber

Striking distance? The last numbers we got from Microsoft were 5 million shipped to stores. Sony has announce 10 million in customers' hands.

Trounced the PS3, except for the fact that the PS3 has caught up with the 360 in sales. And within striking distance of the PS4?  I guess the fact that the PS4 has outsold the XBone since they both entered the market is a moot point,eh? And all about the games? For the XBone, it seems to be all about everything BUT the games...

Red Ring of Death™ was the greatest Sony marketing campaign ever conceived.  Literally unbelievable that Sony could pay advertising dollars to spread lies about their competitors' hardware and people believed it.  They were paying people to claim their Xbox 360™ died.  And yet, the only thing dying were my opponents in Halo 4™, the unbelievable conclusion to the Halo™ trilogy.

That was under old dumb ass leadership. It's about the games now.

Also, many seem to be saying that the PS3 caught up to the 360 (non-US and more about bluray) late in the game after a bungled start by Sony, yet triumphantly declaring the new gen to be over after a bungled start by Microsoft.

True new gen games haven't even come out yet.

The Wii U has been out about a year longer is how.   I'd imagine that the Xbone will pass them in the next few months.  That said, they are both failures.

i agree with you. i use it constantly. i just moved and its the only entertainment device that is being hooked up. the 360 and wii will eventually find a home in the basement and the PC will be in a basement closet with wired ethernet to act as a steam streaming/xbox media server. the hatred seems to be the same thing sony saw in the last gen or that the wii U is seeing now. pure manufactured shadenfreude from that segment of the internet population who just love the idea of a big company failing so they can pat each other on the back about how smart they were to avoid it. the actual item itself has very little bearing on the hatred.

Like I said in hte last one of these:

Someone was happy they got a PS3 as they didn;t have to deal with 12 year olds calling them homosexual slurs while playing CoD. Well good luck PS4 folks. When the masses move to your platform of your choice it's ALL the unwashed masses. Including those 12 year olds.

Microsoft confirmed that the post went up in error.  They didn't confirm that it was indicative of any future program.  While the PS4 is currently trouncing the Xbox One, the One is apparently outperforming the 360 over the same time period in their respective lifespans.

No, I could have bought either one when I got my One. Literally, a PS4 was sitting right beside it on the shelf and I chose the Xbox route. I already had a gold account so I wouldn't have to pay for that, I loved being able to talk to Netflix instead of using a remote which I would have to buy an additional camera that doesn't work as well if i went with Sony, Titanfall, Forza, and the eventual Halos were exclusives, the fact that the only way I could tell the difference between cross platform games is if I watch them side by side, and the fact that I got a Titanfall bundle on sale means my Xbox was cheaper, had more games, worked well enough for me, and had the TV stuff as a nice bonus means I haven't regretted my choice since the first day I got it.

I paid $450 for a bundle with Titanfall and Kinect and brought over my gold account. If I bought a PS4 it would have been $400. Then I would have to buy a camera that doesn't work as well for $60, a game for $60, and an online account for $60.

Total cost for an Xbox - $450.
Total cost for for PS4 - $580.

Add in the fact that I like the One's games better and I just don't see how this is a bad deal for me.

They can DO it just fine. That was one of their big "features" that everyone shiat on and they backed off of. "You can buy the game and let up to 10 of your friends play the game fully, for free, for 24 hours!".

They just don't WANT to do it now.

Ah. Gotcha. I can see how that was a deal for you.

Seeing as how I want neither Titanfall nor Kinect it's pretty "meh" to me.

And people are seriously buying the PS4's camera? lols
