Who wants iPlayer on a 360? What's the point? Use your PC or stream it, or media centre it or whatever it is that you lot do with the linked up systems :roll:

I use mine for gaming.
#8
I get iplayer and other player services free on my Virgin box
#9
If you want to play games, buy a 360, if you want multimedia buy a PS3, or do what I do and play games on 360 and get iplayer elsewhere.

Unless you are seriously hampered for space, I never see the point of a games console trying to be more than what they are meant to do best...play video games.

I have looked at Sky news which is broadcast free from the 360 and its terrible, so pixelated. Freesat are rolling out the IPlayer service this month, or just watch it on a pc.
#10
Like Microsoft are gonna listen to a facebook group?

A gaming console to me means something to play games on. The 360 is fine the way it is!

If you want iPlayer - get a PS3!
#11
But iPlayer is (well, some of it) available on the 360.

I use the brilliant TVersity on my PC and this picks up some of the programmes from iPlayer, as well as other podcasts including the brilliant Attack of the Show from the USA. I can access all the content via my 360 in the lounge. Although I've tested iPlayer I've not watched a programme all the way through this was as I have Virgin Media and access to the full iPlayer service anyway.

lol my console is for playing games dunno about you lot

its M$, they dont care what you think.

M$ wants it to be a part of XBL gold which costs money

BBC's policy is to provide free because people are already paying tv licences.

M$ wont bother with it then.

deal cancelled.

lol xbox is fallng behind in games too.......not in number of games but in quality of games.

xbox had its days but since 2008 it went downhill.
ODST wasnt a big improvement, gears 3 announced for next gen, mass effect, l4d and others are shared with PC, good exclusives like braid and ninja giaden sigma came out on ps3.

tbh its being kicked around the place and yet microsoft think they can make the decisions.
If they were wise they would allow iplayer for free since they dont even have a web browser.

I bought a PS3 because it played games, blu-ray, iPlayer and was a great multimedia system at the same time.

I considered the XBox but for my needs it was much better value for money to go for the PS3 :thumbsup:

i payed for my 360 so that i can watch dvd;s on it

The PS3 is still one of the better Blu Ray players out there and with Sony being a main rights holder to Blu-Ray its just a matter of firmware updates.

LoL you spent £1000 on a Blu Ray player.... you have more money than sense.

Seriously can you really tell the difference?

It is Sonys Flagship player, I hope you have the Equivalent PDP-LX6090 to use it on, not to mention the best surround system on the market?

If you do... hat off to ya :thumbsup:

Wouldn't expect any less gibberish from a guy with a ps3 avatar ;)

I don't play ANY games on my 360, for me it's a streaming media box from my home network :w00t:

My sons play games but I don't like console games - I prefer my PC!

See I understand now... if its your thing which it clearly is having a cinema room thats cool.

So then... If you could only keep 1 Blu Ray Film which would it be....not judging story line, plot or acting ability just purely eye popping goodness :w00t:

tbh the picture on blu-ray is great don't get me wrong but I find the sound quality by far outways the migration from DVD to BD, however

For picture :- Coraline/Dark Knight

For Sound :- Black Hawk Down/Star Trek 2009

IMO

Dark Knight & Black Hawk are both on my christmas list.

Sin City is supposed to be pretty tasty too.
