The Lame XBL Video Announcement
am i the only one not excited about the new xbox live video offerings on the marketplace? it’s just a bunch of limited, over-priced, inconvenient movies and tv that you can record with your media center pc and watch on your xbox anyway.
and, you have to “buy” the tv shows? that’s the stupidest thing i’ve ever heard. sure, i’ll buy a full season on dvd without commercials. you know what? i get the whole season, in one big chunk for 1/2 the price of take-forever-piecemeal-downloaded versions on marketplace.
no. give us the tv shows for the 14-day period — with commercials — for free. that’s the way to do it. not this stupid pay-more-for-less crap.
oh, and speaking of asshats, wtf is wrong with sony? here’s their rebuttal:
PlayStation 3’s content is designed for everyone to enjoy right out of the box, no matter which configuration you purchase. We would never shut anyone out of the entertainment experience because they didn’t have the money to buy the top of the line system
i thought karraker was supposed to fix this shit!
look, man. i know you’re all excited about “fighting back,” but, make sense when you do. for the love of god — your “bargain” system is still $100 more expensive than your competitor’s top of the line system. you have absolutely no credibility to bag on anybody over price — ever. period.
