    its still got bugs, it wont let me play anything and its not exactly easy to navigate, see the games or understand what your supposed to do when your in their.

    Like all MS its badly thought out and crap
     
  3. while the loadings fixed, it is hard to navigate and is very complex when it doesnt need to be.

    Why can't they just make it free... if they did I would definately buy an Xbox and I'd bet there would be a few other people that would do the same.

    Can't wait for the PS3 fanboys to come and talk about something just as lame as this thats 100% cooler because its Sony implemented.

    Its not a war anymore, they all suck.

    Hmm. I can get a lot of those with the Atari collection. Oh, in fact I already have via Steam and I got it for less than $4 during their holiday sales.

    Doesn't sound very impressive, and I hate stupid token/point systems. Although to be fair, the PS Home thing isn't very impressive either.
