Well yes the 360 is way more fun than the PS3, and Xbox Live blows away PSN. This most of us know.

"This comes as a serious blow to Sony and the PS3 as their slogan “It Only Does Everything” seems to more accurately describe their competition now. Many tech heads actually view the Xbox 360 as the ultimate home media device despite its lack of Blu-Ray support already. And recent statistics reflect that the PS3 is fast losing ground as the best selling Blu-Ray device with prices on competitors’ products expected to dip below $100 during the holidays."

This is what I always though. The Xbox 360 has much better media functionality. Streaming photos and music isn't as over-complicated as it is on the PS3. Plus Windows Media Center f*cking pwns.

This thread should be called 'Xbox 360 makes up for blu-ray once again in the USA' because North America seems to be the only region that ever gets this stuff.

Yeah, that's true...

But nah, I'll leave it. We don't know if it will be exclusive to USA for certain.

Personally I don't think any of these services make up for Blu-Ray, but they are nice.

I assume you need XBL Gold to use this feature, and not only that, but does U-Verse have to be available in your area?

*facepalm* That wasn't a question directed to you, I'm questioning the availability of U-Verse. I'm asking if U-Verse has to be available in your area if you want to take advantage of U-Verse on Xbox360. If you didn't know, U-Verse is a service supplied by AT&T. In some areas, they only have Time Warner, Comcast, and etc. So I'm asking if U-Verse has to be available in your area, in order to use it on your Xbox360.

So you don't care about the availability of the service, as long as it's not on PSN? What if the service only worked in Arizona and Timbuktu? Would you still count that?

Maybe you should put more thought into these things, MLD; Especially before you HURP DERP PSN NO GETZ!! I'm not saying its a bad service, nor am I being a "Buzz Killington". U-Verse is really different compared to the other features of XBL, which is why I asked what I did. It turns out, that you have to have the service already, and have at least one standard receiver or a U-Verse DVR operational in your house. So yeah, its only limited to those who have U-Verse available in their area. Razz Not bad, but definitely not what people made it out to be. Laughing

I don't know, Pickles. Why don't you ask the moderation team and administrator for the details behind my banning and unbanning. What a Face

Obvious? As obvious as breaking a rule? Well, that's why I'm still here, I didn't break any. TROLLS don't get UNBANNED. People like myself and Jub get banned due to certain members of authority letting their personal feelings control their moderation powers. If the rules were really enforced, people like IcyMeteor wouldn't be here. XD
