Discuss: Free xbox live?

So yesterday i was browsing around on the net and i noticed this "Free Xbox Live" . Something about that just caught my eye. Apparently Best Buy is sponsoring three full 24 hr days of xboxlive Gold for free to get on Bungies "Wish List" I just wanted everyone to know- Take Advantage of it- they say there is like downloadable Halo3 Themes for your dashboard, and stuff like that!!

still over rated... you shouldnt have to pay to play online... thats what your internet is for. If you host your own server it should be free.

And that is why PC gaming will always > console.

I can appreciate that a lot of games might be better on the PC, but the whole keyboard/mouse thing is incredibly awkward to me.

I am just the opposite, I HATE using a controller... you are so... limited.

i *used* to think the same. i went from the old school pc games (doom, quake, etc) to consoles and thought consoles were where its at.

i started playing Quake4 at a buddies house out of boredom, and within seconds it was apparent how much more control and quickly i was able to move with the k/m combo over a controller. even aiming was spot on, i was used to ~75% accuracy with the sniper rifle on Halo, on PC, im near 100%, i rarely miss with scout in CS:S.

i will never go back to controller, nor will i willingly go back to console gaming.

Re: Discuss: Free xbox live?

it pretty much depends on what you grew up with. If you have a kid that grew up on a pc, you know he will prefer the pc over a console any day of the week, and vise versa. I was fortunate enough to have both while growing up and cant really pick one over the other.

Re: Discuss: Free xbox live?

i dunno, i think that some games are better on console because that game was "developed" strictly for that console, PC's on the other hand, they have to cater their games to a vast plethora of compatibilities( graphics cards, video cards, processors, resolutions...etc. ) Now on the other hand, i know there are PC's built for gaming that would blow consoles out of the water, but consoles that have better graphics all around for every game, is what draws my attention. Even though the gameplay is really what you buy the game for in the first place, i dont want to have to sit thru a cut scene that looks like N64 graphics on my AlienWare. I like seeing "Near realistic" graphics in game play as well as cutscenes.

Now this other thing, I really love the 360 because you can wifi it thru your home network and stream videos onto your tv thru windows media center. Its like buying a ThrowBox. That is cool
And the more you sit and think about it (IMO) the console and Game PC world are almost to a peak, after which, I think, They will converge and have an orgasm of live stream onlineplay, worldwide multiplayer campaign, bump mapping graphics, reflective surface, and just all around Awesomness.

Maybe i just dream to much, or drink to many redbulls.....
