    Call of Duty Was on Sale Last Week Why ID You Ghost on there As Well MS.

    • ryder4life22187

      Cause MS wouldn’t want to do a price drop on it already, as we all know they like to charge $60 even if the game is a couple of years old.

    • itsjustme

      Your version of English makes me smile.

  • Some guy

    They alread have your money and won’t move.
    That issue was reported on the very first GwG.
    Not being able to get trials on xbox website because of credit card was reported on the last update a year ago.
    No fix, but hey they still care about your money so you can get a xbox one instead!

  • Moon Light

    OK guys. Tell me: why americans buying PS4 much better then Xbox One?

    • Sknots

      Cause its cheaper

      • Moon Light

        That’s all? Cheaper? You buying Japanese console because you don’t want to spend 100$?? That’s funny. They bombed Pearl Harbor & now they killed xbox -.-

        • Sanpei

          Cheaper and more powerful…PSN+ members get so many good games for free…

          Why should we pay more for less powerful one ?

          • Moon Light

            Yes, its true. PS4 more powerful. But xbox one will be have more exclusive games.
            Xbox one:
            Quantum Break
            Sunset overdrive
            Gears of War
            Fable Legends

            Order 1886
            Uncharted 4

          • Sanpei

            You may be right…But, if Destiny will have more resolution on PS4, i’ll prefer it…
            Also, for those exclusives, i’ll wait for a price drop on Xbox One…Then, i’ll get one..For now, i dont want to pay more…I am happy with my Xbox360 and PS4

          • Jared

            All Games on PS4 is 1080P Well Almost Sony is trying to Put 60 fps

          • Viggen66

            I personally prefer Xbox games than PS4, on Xbox you have more mature games, and of better quality, MS is releasing a new SDK to enhance and take advantage of 32MB eSRAM, which has more bandwith than PS4 hardware, hence enabling 1080p,the only thing I don’t like on Xbox One is the kinect, I don’t have space to it, and I will never use it, that’s the only thing I don’t like

          • Disturbed_Court_Jester

            “MS is releasing a new SDK to enhance and take advantage of 32MB eSRAM”

            Do you still leave milk and cookies out for Santa too?

          • Viggen66

            I still can’t figure out why MS hasn’t released gddr5 for Xbox one, as time goes by, memory chips become cheaper and cheaper, with an expected life cycle of 6 7 years of a product, as Ram chips getting obsolete it happens the opposite, they get more and more expensive in contrary to newer technology

          • Sanpei

            What bandwith ? It’s between cpu and esram..What about the bandwith between GPU and CPU ?? You are dreaming….8GB GDDR5 vs 8GB DDR3…:D

            Oh dont forget the wasting of valuable system resources by that useless Kinect…

            95% of this ps4 games are not exclusive. Outlast, don’t starve & other I can play on PC

          • Disturbed_Court_Jester

            Neither is titanfall, still the games are console exclusives and even if you look at it that way, there is still more on the PS4.

          • WARLORD

            Two faced much? Just 16 hours ago you were saying “LoL. TitanFall on Xbox One – 792p. All games on PS4 have 1080p.
            Order 1886 will be a great game with beautiful graphics. I can play TitanFall on PC. Why I should buy an Xbox One??”

          • Moon Light

            Lol, I said those words just to see what xbox community thinking about it :)

          • Bryn Osborne

            In this case; Halo, Fable, and Gears can be discounted because those games are going to be milked for money. They won’t be as good as what they should be and probably will be only for fanboys of the console. Coming from a Xbox 360 fan.

    • sak hus

      I would sell off my xb1 and buy a ps4 in a heartbeat.. Paid $870 for day one but didnt’ know it’s more windows 8 machine then a gaming console. They dont’ care about their loyal users and just want to make money anyway they can.

      • Moon Light

        But.. Halo… the best shooter ever made..

        • sak hus

          For 13 year old kiddies, didn’t change the cartoonish aliens from 2001 or whenever the first one came out

          • Moon Light

            Call of duty didn’t change graphics & bad russians as enemies. But you buying this sh__t every year..

          • Bryn Osborne

            The problem is simple. Halo is getting to be more like Call of Duty than anything. Call of Duty is getting less core gameplay than what it should get.

  • sak hus

    Forget sony fanboys we xb fanboys have been screwed up by MS for long time. One thing to get some warning or some limited suspension but perma banned for some hate msgs to other players even without giving any warning or informing about misuse of account?

    Forget that i’ve been paying for live for past 6+ years, bought tons of games, GS of 79K+, MS points etc. BUt just some msgs even if you have sent or someone using your account but should it warrant perma ban? People have cursed more online but they dont get that much harsh punishment.

    THere should be a way to put an appeal and way to reverse and with some monitoring in place to see it doesn’t happen again but no, nothign like that.

    ANd on top, they are not even adhering to their claim as below.

    ” On the Xbox 360 console you will no longer be able to sign in to Xbox Live.
    On the Xbox One console you will be able to sign in, but some features and functionality of the console will be reduced or restricted including but not limited to the ability to participate in multiplayer games.:

    I’m not able to sign in to xb1.. I would still consider keeping xb1 if i can still play single player and can use apps and stuff and can use other ide to play online though.

    Can someone from MS look into this?

  • Viggen66

    Why can’t why download the games, it’s the third time it stops on 80%?

    • Diego Muñoz

      How much free space does your HDD have? Do you happen to have a non-certified Western Digital HDD? Downloads crush when those HDDs have less than 25GB of free space. If you download anything, first make sure that it has enough free space available so that when the download is complete, it doesn’t go below 30GB (give it some 5GB of leeway)
      Those HDDs work normal if you install games off the disc though.
      Good luck!!

    Hello all of you guys and ms. Yesterday we got a very interesting discussion over how free and used games effect developers and the hole industry. Today i was thinking about it and got an idea and want you to give some thoughts and opinions on my idea. So what if ms would came with a service were you can rent games like they do with xbox video. For example if a game comes out you’re interrested in. You could go to xbox live and rent it for like 10- 15 bucks a week. Then load it and play. If you like it and want to get it ms could make the offer to give you a discount on the price of the rent. I would think its a win, win, winsituation. At first we gamers could win, because the developers had to convince us to get their games. If we would play it and don’t like it, thats it you loose max 15 bucks. At second the developers win, because they get at least a part of the money they would normally get. And even games that are not as popular or even good as the AAA titles would get a larger audience and more people who will play them and stick with them as they like it. I got a example for that. Last year i got to rent payday 2 at my local rentalstore. I was not expecting very much but with the time i loved it get to know a lot of other players by playing and bought it, but untill now its totally underated. At last even ms would benefit of this program. They could say you have to be online to rent and play and have to had gold to use it. Than i think more people would use it and i think its better if like 6 of 10 players would rent it online for about 15 bucks then 1 player buy it for about 60. And with the discount of the rentalprice they could have an advantage to stores who sell games cheaper than they’re on the digitalmarketplace. And not at last it would be the console selling advantage in the consolewar. I also see that local retailers could get their money also, if they stick with specialbundels and ingamecontent. And those who sell used games can also get their piece of the cake, because some games are good but not good enough to be worth 40 bucks but if you get for like 20 used some gamers would get it. I think it would be awesome. Now, what are your thoughts on this???

    • Big Brother

      Good for games you can breeze through in a week, or games you like and want to buy. Otherwise you’d sort of be charging for a demo, and what about demos?

  • -xdzlOlzbx-

    Woah ! Almost 1000 comments ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) …

  • Anthony Ethan-Wayne

    Meanwhile on playstation plus….Tomb Raider, BioShock Infinite, Remember Me, Dead Nation AE, Tale Of Two brothers, Xcomm Enemy Unknown, PayDay 2, MEtro Last Light, And Borderlands 2 for FREE….Microsoft should be ashamed of themselves to put out Civ from 2009 as a “Incentive” lol. Come ON, i KNOW you all can do better than that.

  • Berserk Rage

    I tried to download Civilization Revolution several times but it stops when it reach 80% …. is anyone else facing the same issue? I tried to clear the system cache and download it but it didn’t work …..

        I got this 250GB HDD from eBay, I’m not sure if it’s a non-certified Western Digital HDD or not … I have around 15GB of free space on it, i will try to free more space and see if it works, thanks for your help :)

        • Diego Muñoz

          Great!! Let me know how it goes, but I think that you will be fine.
          By the way, maybe restarting the console after you make some room for the download and before you actually download the game might help too.
