Showtime gets Halo first - will come later for Xbox One

One of the biggest (presumed) draws for the Xbox One was its TV TV TV approach and I mean that in the most factual way possible. Apologies for any offense but MS was clear about its broadening its horizon.

Anyway, with Halo coming to Showtime...what incentive is there to spend $500 + $60 for a console and a subscription if the shows are going to be aired on Showtime?

this is a joke.....if this is the case that its going to showtime then xbox later after showtime is done

so now on top of the $500 system, xbox live, cable subscription, you need a showtime subscription

somewhere in the microsoft boardroom they assumed people would spend whatever they asked .......seriously whatever they asked for people would just buy it because 360 was a great system

i dont see it as them being anything but greedy a greedy corporation

this halo stuff should be a part of the xbox ecosystem

their e3 presentation sure made it seem like they were bringing exclusive shows to xbox not showtime first

1st off, take a deep breath and calm down.

2nd, stop acting like greedy corporation and the way most businesses operate aren't synonymous.

3rd, oh well, either get Showtime, or wait.

ok strike greedy corporation............act like that was never said

it is funny they are shopping the tv content they said they were bringing to xbox to showtime

if they dont air the same time...(which they wont if showtime drops money to have it)...i didnt say anything wrong. I just think they need to get the train back on the tracks. they are lost right now

"Details are still being hammered out, but sources say the plan is to have episodes bow on Showtime first, followed by the Xbox window."

This is a whole lot of outrage for something that isn't actually a done deal yet, and we don't even know how long of a delay it would be. Most of the people here are probably stealing the shows from Showtime at this point anyways.

Sucks I have showtime, and zero interest.

Like the ps3 wasn't $$$ when it came out.
I hear a lot of people complaining about the price, get a job. Things cost money.

The PS3 was a much better value proposition at the time of its release.
