Comment Not Worth It Yet (Score 3, Informative) 348

After having been a part of the beta "testing" of Hulu Plus, I feel that the limited benefits they provide don't outweigh the costs just yet. For one thing, you still are having to sit through commercials (which have increased to 2x 60-second commercials at times); combine that with the fact that a good chunk of the shows I'd want to watch from Hulu.com aren't even available through the PS3 app nor on my iPhone, and I felt I wasted the two months I spent on the service. Sure, the fact you're not limited to 5 episodes back is a good feature, but it definitely isn't worth the $15 they're asking for. I know I could pick up PlayOn for a similar experience, but it really irks me that they can't provide several of these shows through their Hulu Plus apps but are perfectly capable of having them on Hulu Desktop.

You know, I wouldn't normally be retentive about this...but "Rock Band" isn't a company, it is HARMONIX that developed this single game, and they acquired the licensing for the rights to the Beatles music. They have more of a hand in this than MTV Games, who is merely the publisher to the game. Not only that, but the game isn't even to be branded as a "Rock Band" game, just that it will be identical. Just show the developer some respect man! :P
