Great idea m$, all the free users record breaking attempt can bog down the paid service for the rest of us. :lol

They'll probably just cancel it at the last minute like they did the last one.

It will be to ban the modded consoles.

hopefully it won't be cancelled

awesome thanks for the heads up op

Nice. I'll take advantage and have a few games of GTA.

I refuse to actually pay for the service though. At the end of the day what you get for free on the PS3 outpaces XBL by a fair way.

It's true though. Iplayer, 4oD, web browser, free gaming, need I go on?

While I still think the 360 is the better Console, the fact they expect you to pay so much for comparatively so little is a jopke.

No don't Co's it's not better. I've got a ps+ subscription on one ps3 and standard free on other both are the same more laggy than the 360 online play, where any comparisons were made via the same game eg ..mw2/ 360/ps3 360 version is less laggy with 2 xboxes on live at same time than when i used 1 ps3 using special ops with a friend on his ps3. It was totally unplayable and was like stepping back to 2001 online gaming.

For you fine for me not. /

tbf both are pretty rubbish at the minute for me as my DSL is broken. The above comparison was made when my DSL was fine

The world record attempt is for most people doing a 100m sprint using kinect sports, sounds like fun to me
