Whats stopping MS from offering the same service as PS+?

With all the money they throw at companies for timed exclusive games? Why can't they take some of that and offer discounts and free games (at leaf KIND of recent, not like that stuff they've been offering on 360). It would eliminate a selling point of the PS4 right there.

MS decided to take their money from online subscriptions and create a huge online infrastructure. Sony decided to take their money from online subscriptions and create a game rental service.

I mean kinda...which Is why I'm getting a PS4 first. But still...why not? MS is trying to appear customer friendly now right? Perfect opportunity right here while knocking down a selling point of the PlayStation?

Valve: Hey, we want to make the Left 4 Dead DLC free, okay?

MS: NO!

Aren't you that troll that said Sony couldn't make a decent infrastructure unless they sell some more skyscrapers or something? Yea you opinions aren't valid to me anymore. No trolls are. Sorry.

Considering the PS3 had more games with dedicated servers than the Xbox360, this statement is already false.

It's not trolling. They did just have to sell 2 skyscrapers and just had a round of layoffs at SOE. They can't currently afford to expand their online infrastructure.
