See what MS have done to your 360? Just wait for the One, it'll be even worse.

If this had some of those Disney Sunday Night movies of the week from the 80's I'd be interested as those are impossible to find as some never saw a vhs or dvd release and the few that did were pal vhas only.

Ok NO one is complain about the disney app. everyone loves disney and Free stuff. what ppl are complaining about is microsoft and how they do things. they personally want to be an all purpose entertainment living room device. and some dont like it. and some hate that they focused more TV than games. others hate how they've done business.  so complaints will occur .

More pointless non-gaming bullshit from Microsoft for the Xbox. You sound like a fool if you're trying to defend this.

I laughed at this but I can see it having potential for the family people.

Sounds like something that should've been for Wii U.

This is a great idea. My kids love Disney shows/movies. It would be nice if they could get the app running properly though.

I get why you'd be mad at other stuff but you're just complaining to complain about something added.  I will complain with the rest of them but adding FREE Disney content is just nothing to complain about.

Great, this is all we need. More non-game shit for our game console.

I see. The future of Microsoft is watching reruns of old mickey mouse cartoons.

MS guy 1: "Sony just released "The Last of Us" and it got great reviews and praise. We need to counter it with something."

MS guy 2: "I know! Let's release an app by Disney that has nothing to do with gaming! That'll show em."

Expect to see more of this with the Xbox One.

This is TV stuff and it is the failure of an xbox one-80, but I'm a bit of a softie for mickey mouse.

@Mersinary_Myth They don't really focus more on entertainment than games, they just have to market it a lot harder, because only Gamers read these websites.

@the_real_VIP You sound like a fool for talking about this. I think it's nice for there to be a Disney app for families with small children. There are after all, plenty of Disney games for the Xbox 360.

@the_real_VIP Yea, I suppose someone from MS entered your residence, put a gun to your head, and made you install it.

@ant19831983 It's not a game console, those were left in early 2000's. It's an "entertainment unit" now. Hence you can do more than play games on it, the same is true for the PS3. Every modern man knows this.

@ant19831983 Great, this is all we need. Another Idiotic comment. Seriously why are you commenting on an article about a Disney app. Obviously you don't want it. Go away

@ant19831983 Don't you have Netflix films to watch like 23% percent of you on your fav console?

@ant19831983 And it effects you how?... You want a game console, you have one. Learn to shut your mouth instead of whining.

@ant19831983 Right...let's complain about free content because you've got nothing else to do.  How can you be taken seriously?

@KamuiFei Nope - MS' response was State of Decay and they didn't have to split the sales with retailers since it was a digital only download.  At the end of the day, this was probably more profitable for MS than The Last of Us will end up being for Sony (who had to pay for development, marketing and distribution).

@KamuiFei And your point? Check out Xbox 360 library with PS3's and tells me which is vaster.

@fakharakhtar362 @Mersinary_Myth  if we add previous titles. ps3 has psn that allow you to play old ps2 ans 1 games and they add about 5 title a weeks. so i doubt that xbox has more now 360 vs ps3 i can see that

fakharakhtar362

@Mersinary_Myth  Xbox 360 can run original xbox games but new PS3 models can't so you can add original xbox titles too in the 360 library of 959 games

@the_real_VIP @R2C25 Look up your facts, for the love of god. There are 772 PS3 games and 959 Xbox games as of this message. See the lists at Wikipedia.
