This. I mainly play BF3 on Xbox right now, but one of the major features I covet that’s currently only on PC due to the limited hardware of the Xbox is 64 player multiplayer.
I’m assuming that the next Xbox will be able to handle 64 player multiplayer on BF4 (and other games I guess), but the fact that BF4 is also being released on 360 makes me wonder if the next Xbox version will be hampered by that backwards compatibility.
I actually missed something as well: AT&T sold a total of 6 million smartphones (1.2 million of which were either new customers or customers upgrading from dumbphones), so I assume you can compare that number to Verizon’s 7.2 million sold.
The first sentence: “announcing an addition of 296,000 postpaid customers during the quarter.” The 1.2 million new smartphone subscribers figure includes current customers upgrading from featurephones and dumbphones.
I think you read the article incorrectly. Verizon added 677,000 new subscribers while AT&T added only 296,000, half of Verizon’s added subscribers. Also, Verizon activated 7.2 million smartphones in the quarter, while AT&T only amassed 1.2 new smartphone subscribers. Granted, Verizon’s activated smartphones aren’t necessarily “new”, they might be claiming all smartphone subscriptions.
But in no way do these numbers show AT&T “to be overtaking Verizon” or that Verizon “is surely going to worry.”
