Very likely bigger than the self-claimed "biggest gaming network" you didn't find anywhere bad to post about two weeks ago.

yeah i didnt find the article its 2 years old. if you find it you can post it.

Your post from 2010 is essentially "50% of online 360 owners pay for gold", you then use this, in part, to assume 90% of all XBO owners pay for Gold.

Don't forget that during the 360 era you needed Gold to access streaming services like Netflix.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

I actually thought it would be higher. At least around half of all subs.

And this makes you think the Attach rate for gold on XBO is 90%... because? If anything this highlights people were subscribed because of 360.

Your logic is essentially "last time we got numbers there were more gold subscribers on 360+XBO then XBO sold, so XBO attach rate must have been and is still nearly 100%!!!"

Still waiting on that source btw. You have no evidence that anywhere close to 90% of XBO owners subscribe to gold, and as it's such an outlandish statement it cannot be taken remotely seriously without facts.

https://techcrunch.com/2010/12/02/microsoft-only-50-percent-of-xbox-live-users-pay-for-gold-subscription/

its not easy to figure it out but it makes sense why should ps4 owners buy psplus if their biggest exclusives are offline singleplayer games, on the other side if you want to enjoy your xbox exclusives you have to pay xbl gold

Your first article is actually a negative in hindsight.  As ZhugeEX's tweet points out, the MAU for Live now is 52M.  That means that even though they have sold more XBO's and Windows 10 PCs, the active users have dropped by 3M in just 3-4 months.

This has nothing to do with what I posted. That was on a totally different scale.

I was asking is this good or bad because of the mixed reactions in this thread. 



I do not subscribe to PS Plus, I have no PSVR, and I don't have a 4K TV for my PS4 Pro. But I have TOO many PlayStation games.

Well, to answer your question, it's better than Live, so...



Kind of interesting. I still have PS plus and Ps Now time left in the subscriptions but so far I don't intend to renew either at this time. Fortunately, I have been preoccupied with Horizon Zero Dawn 62% complete and there is still a backlog of PS4/3 games I still need to finish. Eventually I will renew. At the moment I get what I need out of PS4 between the games and Netflix and movie watching.
