Someone was telling me the other day about the PS network. That they don't have to pay to play online & they have a deal for something like £40 per year and you get to download some free games each month.
This month they got Battlefield 3, Saints Row 3, Unit 13 for the Vita, and maybe another. i can't remember.
Month before was Hitman Absolution & some others i don't remember either.

With the xbox im paying to play online, more than £40 per year & the 'free games they offer as a 'reward are crappy old games which are not in demand at all anymore, and like you said, can get for next to nothing anywhere.

This along with the knowledge of the plans for the next xbox, which is nothing technically new, and probably no TM:F, Microsoft can go suck a fat one.

I will sell my profile sometime soon while it still has some value.

Thanks for the info, SG.

Exactly. PS+ is a much better deal for a payed subscription, that (at least for now) is not even required for online play.

Xbox Live is a mediocre, overpriced, limited and ad-riddled service that is simply not worth paying for. I'm still baffled that they can get away with obligatory Gold subscription for access to media streaming services like Netflix, services that you ALREADY pay for on top of.

PS4 will require a payed subscription [PS+] for online play from what I hear, but at least you get your money's worth in free games and proper deals.

wait, are you saying Xbox doesn't currently give you free games each month or good deals? Do you not have a 360?

Couldn't download Fable III because Xbox LIVE is apparently not 'officially' supported in my region. Ironically enough, I took $15 out of my wallet AFTER the FIII was no longer free to see if it worked and I could buy and download it without issue.

Other than that I'm looking forward to not be able to download the rest of the games coming these next few months to Xbox LIVE® for free.

Games that, as I've argued, are best-selling and you can get for a few buckets at Gamestop, and that MS is offering solely to celebrate their new console.

Pre-june there was no such thing as free games on Xbox LIVE other than those few specifically designed with FTP in mind i.e Happy Wars.

Deals are scarce and are often not that good. Nowhere near the craze of, say, Steam sales. Microsoft doesn't seem to grasp the concept of digital media, given that GoD versions of newly released games are still being sold at retail $60 months after release while you can get the physical game for only a nickel at Amazon or Gamestop.

Sony has been doing the free monthly games things for well over 2 years I believe.

Xbox live seems to have a new sale every week. Plus world of tanks, project sparks, and killer instincts are all going to be free to play, and they've said theres going to be more. They're going to release a few free games a month from now on, and halo 3 and assassins creed 2 are two examples they've announced will be free

I think it would be best for everyone to not argue or speculate about either consoles, we have no idea at this point because none of us have them. Save the arguments for when we have all the facts, both consoles seem good and are similar even though Microsoft went in a different direction but people afraid of change made them change their mind.
