I can better be classified as more of a PlayStation fan than an XBOX 360 fan, mainly because I don’t like to pay to play. However, there are still some things that makes the XBOX an integral part of my entertainment center. Firstly, its application list and UI is more attractive and user friendly than that of the PlayStation 3. The unfortunate part of the XBOX’s strengths is that it requires Gold membership. Well, thankfully, Microsoft has loosened its reigns and plans on giving the “rest” of us some candy.
This weekend only, check out these excellent entertainment apps—on us!*
