  • Microsoft offers select Xbox 360 users $75 rebates for buying Xbox Ones

  • shinyshirthero 09/07/2014

    The problem with promotions like this is they do the exact reverse of what they are intended to. They piss off early adopters as they feel cheated. They also alienate the 'core' which is the market they are trying to recapture.

    I bought an xbox 360 pretty much day one and i've replaced it about 4 times over its lifespan. I've also bought a boatload of games. My gamerscore is well over 100K and i bought almost every piece of DLC going too. If that doesnt make me loyal i don't know what the criteria is.

    Well done M$ well done...

  • Ex-EA CEO John Riccitiello is skeptical of free-to-play

  • shinyshirthero 31/07/2013

    The fundamental reason why free to play isn't going work is you can't even convince gamers to buy dlc at the moment. So how the hell are you going to get them to buy into microtransactions. A model that has worked in the past for mobile games is not necessarily going to work on consoles. Plus you are ploughing all that money into development with no guarantee that you will ever make any money. It's not rocket science. The games industry really needs to stay employing gamers rather than idiots in suits. Reply +3

  • Bethesda details first Fallout 3 DLC

  • shinyshirthero 11/12/2008

    well lets hope its better than the last dlc that bestheda released. Anyone else remember the shivering isles? What a brilliant piece of programming that was.



    I still haven't forgiven them for deleting my 400 odd hour oblivion character. And thats the reason why this is not getting bought. I'm voting with my wallet.



    Shame tho. It looks bloody brilliant.

  • Halo 3 title update available today

  • shinyshirthero 23/09/2008

    bungie - the developer that just keeps giving - i also like the fact that they were the first ones to get microsoft to break their 1250 limit. Halo 3 needed this and the new maps to reignite the interest in it. Can't wait to get home! Reply 0

    I have a couple of questions

    Firstly is there likely to be any additional gamerscore added to halo 3 in the future - ala oblivion or crackdown

    and Secondly - the legendary cut scene right at the end of the game... that was high charity right?

    Thirdly - are there plans to bring back some of the old multiplayer maps from previous games - personally i would love to see hang em high again



    Just wanted to say brilliant game guys - cannot stop playing it - i must have played campaign 10 times at least now and the multiplayer is brilliant looking forward to the new maps



    However taking out the lock on ability on the rocket launchers was criminal and it would have been nice if you had bought the pistol back with a zoom.

  • 2K quiet on BioShock DLC

  • shinyshirthero 07/09/2007

    ok - firstly machine buster, vending expert and eve saver all sound like tonics to me and to be honest they all sound ver unnecessary



    why would you need to save eve - there is plenty of it around anyway, and the machine and vending buster would also be pretty pointless cuz there is tonnes of spare money around to buy automatic hack tools



    sonic boom sounds... ok - i did enjoy cyclone trap but sounds very similar



    i agree with willy359 - bullet time plasmid not only fits in with the story but would also be awesome!
