Since most games on Xbox 360 were P2P, why were we paying for Xbox live?

#1lilj812Posted 9/6/2013 9:59:50 AM
I had xbox live on 360 for many many years before finally trading in my final Xbox. Now, I know I spend hundreds of dollars on Xbox live in my lifetime, and I'm wondering... What was that money spent on?

How can anyone say that Xbox live is better for online gaming when it more often than not had NOTHING to do with online gaming since P2P is P2P.

So, no dedicated servers, why was I spending all that money before? And most important, why should I trust them with my money now?

Can anyone tell me why Xbox live gold was around when the online support for games was up to the devs?

You want others to tell YOU why YOU did something? Be an adult and answer it for yourself.

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

Those apps SHOULD have been free so I don't count them. I don't like the idea of paying to use YOUTUBE.

And what about the marketplace? We paid for the marketplace servers? Fantastic....

Why pay for PS+? The free games that keep growing every month of course. That's a huge plus over xbox live.

Oh, you can't read. I'll ask the question again, "What was the money spent on?"
