Are Gamers the cheapest people out there?

I mean some gamers be complaining about $60 yearly service. It makes me wonder have some gamers ever bought popular brand clothes and shoes, movies, anime.

Anywhere from Rocawear, Ralph Laruen, Puma, Sean John, Polo's etc. You buy an whole outfit and that's like $120, plus a pair of Jordons or Adidas which is another $80+. That's $200 right there.

I don't know I just find it pretty laughable people complaining about $60 games, DLC packs, and Online Service.

What do you think? Can gamers be the cheapest people out there?

No. People that pirate stuff are.

Close, I own a air cooled Volkswagen. My friends who own them as well are the cheapest people alive. Gamers come in a close second.

Can't believe this guy listed Puma with those other brands...

No it's not that.
People don't like to get nickle and dimed for everything they do, and that's exactly what gold does.

Why did you post this in the Xbox One board?

Yes. Some gamers don't like paying for anything, especially digital because you know, the Internet has tons of free stuff if you know where to look. So giving $1 a month is a king's ransom to them.

The term "nickle and dime" refers to many small charges that ad up to a lot. Gold is one charge that allows you to do everything that requires the internet on the Xbox. If Microsoft charged separately for each feature THEN you would be getting nickle and dimed.

Tons of really rich people are penny pinchers. It is how they got rich, man. Unfortunately, I like having luxuries and traveling far too much to be an exceedingly wealthy man.

Really, we are still using this BS excuse?

It has nothing to do with affordability. Having all these basic features behind a paywall is ridiculous.

Edit Also: most DLCs are starting to come on disk. This is a blatant ripoff.
