    "Used to work good but, Not anymore..."

    June 27, 2012  |   By skeeterhoss100


    Ease of use.
    Variety of content.


    Unreliable plugins/scripts.
    Having to use my computer to stream content to my game system.
    Bad connections and frequent drop outs.
    Too many errors example the "This content can not be played" error (800288E1).
    Price is way too high.
    Plugins and scripts hardly ever update, Even the automatic updating ones still fail to update or work 90% of the time.


    All in all the playon used to work good and be reliable for the most part, The latest version is by far the worst and most unreliable and has the most glitches.
    Good thing that i did not waste my money on this piece of junk program!
