Aparently I've heard xbox live has problems with connection that you've paid for on battlefield?  Tongue Whereas the psn version worked fine  Cool
Besides which can't you already stream music from your pc anyway?  Roll eyes

Actually I can't seem to get uncharted: drakes fortune to work on my xbox 360? It's the best game I've ever played so it;s really bugging me  Wink Grin
Also I want more of this banter because most console owners take things too seriously, as if they have to defend their console choice. So I enjoy this  Smiley

Qui qui, it's free but the amount of songs isn't endless. Especially since it's only songs that have videos for starters.

nowt to do with xbox live, and more to do with EA's own serves being under capacity.  Something that was made apparent at the xbox platform launch, and so more servers were rolled out in time for the PS3 launch.  So that's a null and void argument  Wink
I can't justify the xtra couple of hundred pound on a box to play "blu-ray" movies when I don't have an Hd TV, and don't need anything else the PS3 offers.
I stream music from my laptop or PC wirelessly to the xbox while playing games.  A lot of games such as Forza and COD cut the background music out for you soo you can hear the game sounds, and your streaming music at the same time.  Works really well too. Smiley
Going back to the topic at hand, looks good to me.  I wonder what the sky tv on the xbox will be like.  Should be good as long as existing customers don't have to pay extra.  With all this extra streaming stuff coming to the xbox, i'm going to need to make sure that I have enough useage on my package.  Grin

I actually knew that to be honest, it's a little bit poor that you have to rely on EA's infamously poor record with servers when you pay £40 a year to get dedicated microsoft servers  Undecided
Does wireless capability come built into the elite versions? Or did you buy it seperately?

Re: new music streaming service on xbox

People who have their ps3 in their bedroom when the router is downstairs find built in wireless very useful. I occasionally use my ps3 wirelessly if I'm not gaming but need my pc wired  Tongue
So have you tried this thing out yet or is it coming in the future?

Re: new music streaming service on xbox

future euge it going to be a pc app/web browser based  Undecided so u ps3 guys maybe able to use the service as well and in the news articles it syays its not a dead cert that it will be on xbox but more than likely will be.
i cant see me using there service on the pc over spotify unless my goldship gives exclusive acess to new releases ect like spotify is doing at the moment with payed members ship
