UPDATE: The game’s no longer free on Live, you had your chance, then.
Original Story: Stop whatever you’re doing now, turn on that Xbox 360 of yours, and get to downloading Fable II. Redmond is offering the game for free at no extra cost to you.
Good news for the movie buffs: starting this Saturday, the PlayStation Store will update with one free movie rental as part of its “Midnight Movies” promotion. How does that sound? For this coming weekend, the movie that’ll be shown is Bram Stroker’s Dracula, so why not put it to download while playing some games on Saturday.
There’s just one catch, though.
Many a gamer have been complaining about the lack of enticing offerings provided to PS Plus subscribers. For them, what they’re getting now’s really not that different from regular PSN users.
Sony’s heard the cry loud and clear, so to make PS Plus members happy, the giant will offer the PlayStation Protection Plan to PlayStation Plus subscribers at a discounted cost.
Oh the benefits of protesting.
I’m sure you’re familiar with this article. And you must be saying, ‘this guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about’, right? Well, I still stand by my estimates, especially if Microsoft and Nintendo decide to launch their next systems in 2012.
However, even if they did, there is still a way for Sony to win in terms of console install base in this gaming generation. To do that, however, it’d take tireless effort on the giant’s part.
I’m talking under table deals, pulling strings, and buying off executives. In other words, the company from the land of the rising sun with have to play “dirty” if it hopes to breakthrough.
If what I’m about to explain happens, even Nintendo will be left in the PS3′s dust.
We all know that EA’s reputation hasn’t been the cleanest amongst publishers, but recently the giant has been better positioned, with many Game developers leaning more towards it than Activison.
Yes indeed, Actvision recently scored a major deal with Bungie, but EA has seen a plethora of collaborations recently, from Respawn Entertainment to Insomniac Games, even Live Gamer has now joined the EA club.
