Even $60 a year is way, way too steep for the low tech games offered. There are just too many similar free games, that are always free, available on-line.RhinoGL said:Actually with the discount pass we paid a little over $60 for a year. Remember that you are playing games similar to web or mobile games from the comfort of your couch without buying any special equipment (like a $400 Xbox 360).
I actually tried the other free web games but after an hour they wanted $19.99 to play further...
Um excuse me, I've posted on plenty of other topics. Your promotion of the Game Lounge seems to be your only purpose on this forum.RhinoGL said:Well as much as I promote it, seems to me you like to bash it. I agree this service is no Xbox 360 or PS3. It is a casual game service for those customers that cannot afford or do not want a game console or PC.
Even if you think it is crap, it does offer some pretty cool things:
- play with your remote
- play on your receiver
- create and use a profile to:
- - earn tokens for good performance and gain rank
- - post leaderboard scores
- - multiplayer matches against other players
An apple to apple comparison would be to compare to online pay services like Pogo.com.
130k subscribers and over 50 million plays in 2007 is not bad.
