[QUOTE="sts106mat"][QUOTE="Stevo_the_gamer"]That's a lot. I'm scared to see how much I've spent on my large library of games. 0.0Stevo_the_gamer
with one online retailer, just on games alone in about 3 years i have spent over £1000.00 i was stunned.

Sounds probably similar to my spending in the past three years, ignoring hardware purchases which alone would shoot it to twice that. Gaming is quite the expensive hobby... something my fiance readily continues to point out. Oh well.

i am lucky in that i get bored of games quickly and do not keep a big collection, sell em and buy another one new, thats how i do it. the 1K i have spent wont have come directly out of my pocket, but from sales of other games.

So you are saying, if I just get a Wii in addition to my PS3, Ill then be able to play Halo?

[QUOTE="tormentos"][QUOTE="blue_hazy_basic"] You're right I forgot about that! As tormentos rightfully points out we need to add wonderbook on to the milkage price of the PS3! Good call Eltormo! ;)

Wonder book is a game just like Halo dude now you will count games to..lol Please don't go there or should i add Halo ODST expansion for $60 dollars.?

ok do it, while you are at it, add the paid for demo of Gran Turismo 5, the several versions of the god of war collections, youll end up paying more for the ps3 games, whilst having way less games because there are so many collections / re-issues & duplicates.

Quote me saying you can access netflix for free,netflix charge you for streaming movies... Netflix on PS3. You pay ISP and nteflix. Netflix on PC. You pay ISP and netflix. Netflix on phones and tablets. You pay Cell phone companies and netflix. Netflix on xbox 360.........:lol: You pay ISP,you pay netflix and you have to pay for live gold.....If you are not a gold member you can't use netflix...even if you have netflix and internet...:lol: Nice spin dude....tormentos

You need it for basically anything interesting online,even demos are delay to silver users,something that wasn't like that when the 360 first started,it was latter change to make XBL look like a better value. The fact that MS hike the priced based on facebook,twitter and other stupid apps free to every one on this world proves how silly and crappy XBL is,even on my damn phone i get those apps free of charge.tormentos

i have only had live about 2 years now ,i bought a 360 with a HDD, wi-fi is not nessecary for me and i didn't have to fork out for a HDMI cable so 280 quid for my 360, 80 quid for live for 2 years=360 quid, Ps3 at launch=425 quid so by choosing a 360 over the Ps3 i saved myself 65 quid, you see it's not as cut and dry as SONY idiot fanboys would have you think, it's all down to personal preference and with XBL only having 30 million active online users that means at least half of 360 owners don't play online and apppear to be quite happy about it, you see in the real world people are different and there is no one formula that applys to everyone, bottom line is that the Xbox 360 is the cheapest 'out of the box' game console for people who choose not to play online,if you choose to play online it may be more expensive in the long run but thats a skewed way of looking at things because the cost is spread over time.delta3074
Dude you know how much 80 pounds are in dollars.? $128 officially you pay more for live than we do,2 years of XBL are $120 in US,which at the current exchange rate are 74 quids.. Also you are using just 2 years of XBL.? Are you sure because i think i can remember arguments of you about how much better was XBL vs PSN which are older than 2 years. Actually there is a difference between been happy not been able to access online gaming,and plain old refuse to pay for something that should be free,the majority of the xbox community did not pay for XBL,the majority of the 360 fans still refuse to do it,i love online gaming i just like paying for something that should be free.
#114 Posted by brennanhuff (990 posts) -

Indeed PS3 owners paid $600 at launch. 360 owners who have played online since the 360's launch have paid over $700 and that number will keep going up every single year.FlamesOfGrey

So Xbox Live is now $100 a year? What is wrong with you?

wages are relative though, the cost of living etc. to fill up my car costs about £60 and its a small tank and that lasts 10 days at best. the cost of XBL is miniscule, which is why we find it fascinating how obsessed you cows get with it.

I think he's saying launch 360 price = $400 + 6 years of Live at $50 a year = $300 so the total will be $700.

#120 Posted by The_Game21x (26342 posts) -

Quite frankly, I know I've spent more on my 360 than my PS3 over the years, excluding the price of games because I prefer gaming on the 360 far more than I do the PS3 and I don't feel ripped off in the slightest. Of course, I've probably spent somewhere near $1500 on my gaming rig and accessories for that and I don't mind that either because so far, it's been a worthwhile investment.

I think PS3 fans need to come to terms with the concept of value being relative.

Worst is subjective, but 360 is also officially the console with the most games. You know, what actually matters when you get a gaming console.

BUt the PS3 has the best games, which is the most important part for any gamer. 360 clearly loses here and PS3 wins.

:cool:

You are a tool... Get the apps for free....,is not the first time you and several other try to spin this.

Netlfix is free to use on all consoles but on xbox 360,and you know what i mean you can spin it all you want,if you don't pay for xbox live you don't get netflix even if you own a netflix account that doesn't happen on PS3,PC,tablets or cell phones..

If that is the one you talk it wasn't full price and it was far from a demo,that in most cases feature 1 or 2 cars,not 76..lol

Yes it is and you can't use it even if you have a working netflix account,that is the point you can't use it.

On PS3 all i need is to have a netflix account and online access,on xbox 360 you need online access,a netflix account and xbox live which is $60 dollars,that is call hiding the app over a pay scheme..

Which is hilarious because PS3 fanboys constantly try to assert that the 360 has "no games" even though in the real world, it has more games than the PS3 and then they come up with all kinds of reasons for why those games don't count. "They're too old!" "Still nothing as highly rated as Uncharted 2 or MGS 4!" "You have to pay for Xbox Live!" and my favorite of all... "Well, I can get the better version on the PC anyway!" Gotta love that. The instant you bring up a game like Minecraft or The Witcher 2 as a benefit for the 360 over the PS3 (and most people don't try to present them as exclusives, even though the notion of console exclusivity exists in the real world and not here), the only rebuttal PS3 fanboys have is to bring another platform into the discussion to save the PS3.

Really makes you think, doesn't it?

The 360 has a larger library of quality games than the PS3. This is a fact. No amount of opinionated rebuttals or bringing in the PC to defend the PS3 can change that, as much as you'd like them to.

Its not available on ps3.... its still not available on ps3 and its not available on ps3... oh wait its not available on ps3... so in closing the ps3 having a better library is subjective as the competition has amazing games that the ps3 does not. You can give me meta game responses all you want but in reality a person with a 360 has amazinh choices that the ps3 does not offer. The end.

You do realize that every PS3 owner is also the owner of a high end gaming PC, right? This was established a couple of years ago. lol :P

I bought one year of Gold for $40 CAD recently. I used my 360 with a Silver account for five years. My most enjoyed console this gen? 360. And it isn't even close. Don't see the problem with paying for something when I feel it is worth it (despite despising the idea of paying for online).
