MS reply to 100 Dollar Live, NPD Results & claim their games look the best

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - MS reply to 100 Dollar Live, NPD Results & claim their games look the best

As for the NPD (North America) results, I don't think MS has anything to worry about. Things are stabilizing now. Week of Sept 27, 360 won because of ODST. Week of Oct 3, ODST died down so PS3 hovered a bit on top. Week of Oct 10, 360 hovered over PS3 as the slim 299 hype started to die down. Week of Oct 17, PS3 went ahead 25% or so because of Uncharted 2. I bet you the week after that, the 360 hovers over the PS3 again and sees a boost the week after that when Forza 3 hits (just like PS3 saw a boost with Uncharted 2). Right now everything is pretty much stabilized. The real worry for Microsoft is Europe/Others. They need a find a way to make the Xbox more appealing to Europe/Others. Even when the PS3 was more expensive, the PS3 was still winning in most European countries I think (except UK obviously). I don't know what's going on with Europe but MS needs to do something about that region.

^yes which is why I said I don't even know if it's possible. I've never seen their quality control methods or standards, or polls on 360 HDD failures. So yes it could be hogwash, or it could have an inkling of truth I think the point is neither of us know whether it yields results.

look, its 100% Hogwash because all the testing in the world on the harddrive would not matter because they will go out anyway. It will die sooner or later.

 

but the real point.

 

think about how long would Microsoft check each drive for fault's, and do you think the HARDDRIVE companies don't test the drive any more than

Microsoft does?

 

One is software

the other 

is HARDWARE

I just don't think with Microsoft's Quality control experience:

every product they have ever released that they have had their stamp on has alway's had problem's security hole's in software, and faulty hardware. that has been a staple from Microsoft, not trying to bash, don't want to come off that way, but it's the truth. at least from my experience, and i use Quite a bit of Microsoft product's every Day, just as an example My phone is an HTC 8525 windows mobile. 

An I have been a windows mobile and windows CE user since well for a long time, and THE PHONE still has problem's with the software.

not many but some. Its expected, but to say the HARDRIVE'S that are better than the HardDrive in PC's is pure HOGWASH..they are the same  HardDrive. That HardDrive is no more special than any other PC laptop HardDrive. 

and it's laughable that the PR person from Microsoft is trying to say that it is.

exactly, I stated that very Idea, I think many are blowing this way out of Proportion,if the service get's updated and you view that the update is worth the extra money I do not see anything wrong with the price of Live going Up.It's not like Microsoft would eliminate the silver xbox live option

Microsoft would know that not everyone would choose the higher paid option, but some would and that's fine nothing wrong with that.

yeah there could be platinum, if you could also download music to your Xbox 360, that would really help Zune sales.

I could see them introducing a third tier (platinum, diamond, etc) for 100 dollars a year, then after some time (6 months...a year maybe) getting rid of the gold option.



Owner of PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Switch, PS Vita, and 3DS

You guys always blow this stuff out of proportion. No way in hell is Live going up to $100. Seriously guys.....
