Silver members don't even deserve to play their console. Get a job you moocher. Silver members are so entitled, it's maddening. Why are you entitled to anything because you are silver? I can not wait till they can't play their Xbox's. So nice ^^.


Ok, then I will be sure to get a PS4 when it's released so I can play online multiplayer for free.

Next gen I'm buying whatever nexbox comes out. Had PS3 and PSN, not going to even consider another sony console until the online gets up to speed.

Sony's online is pretty much the same in the same region. XBL is a bit superior when playing worldwide. But the difference outside of fighting games is marginal at best.

What's worse is the fact that, if they don't bother to play it, why would $5 be incentive for them to play it? Even if they gave a free $20 game on demand or something, I doubt they'd be rushing off PS3 and Wii u to play it.

well we all know the 360 isnt that popular in Japan. nice idea but I don't see it working because 1) its not that popular 2) goes back to A, how many people would even have gold 3) if they did have gold would they really want to slave away a few hours more individually in hopes that everyone would be doing their part as well? my mindset would be ok I could play 20 more hours which isnt jack ****. I'll just play like normal then and let everyone else do it. 4) if they are in Japan where the xbox is not popular and probably more expensive, and still bought gold and play often, why would 400msp aka peanuts be anything for them to slave for?

Wow, people are mighty proud of the fact they pay for the same service everyone else gets free. Japan probably isn't going to make it, barely anyone has a 360 there.

XBL Gold is pretty damn garbage these days. Online is slightly better than PSN overal, but PSN regular pretty much matches it in all other ways. PSN also has much better game deals (especially in Europe). PS+ absolutely stomps on XBL Gold as a service.

And no, I'm not a fanboy. XBL Gold was much better than PSN at first, but Microsoft stopped improving it shortly after the generation started, while Sony kept improving their service. Both of their marketplaces are garbage these days though... a gigantic step backward from before.

Anyhow, this promotion is just stupid. The amount of points silver members get is pathetic. Even the Gold members don't get much, 400 is also pretty sad. Should've been like 800 for Gold and 400 for Silver. I doubt the current amount will motivate them to even play more than they regularly do.


Lies. This guy's a fanboy.

Seriously, this.

Nintendo WiFi on Wii was terrible, but Netflix, internet, and other apps were free.

Wii U and PSN are currently on par with XBL in terms of online quality, and again, Netflix, internet, and other apps are still free.
