    Seems pretty low to rip off the theme song of LBP. That would be like Sony using the MadWorld(Gears) song in Killzone2 commercials.

    Also false advertising XBL as being free. :rofl: Seems like they're getting desperate. They know once that Ps3 Slim comes out with a price drop, it's all over for the 360. They have to resort to making shit up and trying to fool customers. :rofl:

    Terrible.

    I would have made a slight effort to watch the video but it's not a clickable link so I didn't read your post either.

    Nothing "official" yet, but it's heavily rumored and tons of evidence is pointing towards an announcement on Aug 18th...


    Smaller version of Ps3 at a lower price. Once that happens, it's game over for 360. They mindaswell all get the RROD at the same time so MS can just say fuck it, we're abandoning our fans again, let's make another new system.

    Seriously...if someone doesnt own either system right now... Who in their right mind would choose a 360 over Ps3.

    360 is barely outselling Ps3 now and it's literally HALF the price. Once Ps3 hits that $299 sweet spot... . pants will be cumed in.

    A couple of things come to mind.

    1) I don't know enough about LBP but couldn't care less what music they used. Hell, maybe they did it just to make fanboys fume.

    2) They say its free and then mention some shit costs more in the disclaimer. Is it misleading? Sure. So are most of the commercials out there.

    3) Facebook and last.fm aren't being advertised to gamers anyway. They're trying to go after the 'casual' base of the Wii more than anything. Yes, you can use the web browser of the PS3 but that think is clunky as hell. Regardless, integrating stuff like that into the interface is a smart move.

    4) I'll give him points for mentioning PlayOn. Though if your pc is shit, it's not really all that useful. Even then, the 360 uses PlayOn as well, and its a bit more userfriendly for slower connections.

    Personally, I like the interface of the 360 better. It feels like you're part of a community. The interface of the ps3 is put together well but it feels more barren by comparison.

    1) Fanboys arent fuming...ppl are laughing at how petty MS is. On the 360 official youtube site I saw a shitload of comments from ppl saying they wanted to Buy LBP after hearing the theme again...BTW Sony/Columbia owns that song so MS had to pay them to use it... Sony probably let them because it's free advertising for LBP.

    2) All companies spin things to a certain degree, but NOT LIKE THIS. This is flat out lying. Used car salesmen shit. MS spoke to their lawyers like "How can we trick our customers and lie to them without getting sued" and this is what they came up with. Come on dude... why even attempt to defend MS for that shit? Its lame.

    If people aren't familiar with Microsoft's bullshit by now after dealing with them for 20+ years, then they can't really be helped.

    Shit, this is the same company that released WindowsME after all.

    A lot of people this commercial is aimed at aren't even 20 years old. :rofl:


    Imagine a 12 year old kid seeing this video, not reading the fine print (nobody does), thinking XBL is free, and asking his parents to buy him a 360 for Xmas only to find out you have to pay $50 every year. Ofcourse, he's only 12 and has no job and no money so he can't buy the XBL card, and his parents just spent hundreds on xmas gifts, they're not paying another $50 for a one year subscription. So what happens?? He gets screwed. No two ways about it. Why do you even bother attempting to stick up for that shit. Wheres your integrity.

    It'll teach him a valuable lesson about being an informed consumer and the next time he makes a big purchase he will do research before hand. Microsoft is educating the next generation. :bowdown:

    People, not consoles. ie: Parents of today's gamers and their past dealings with MS.
