Seriously, why can't you use YouTube and Netflix without Xbox live gold?

It seriously doesn't make sense for your console to be unable to watch YouTube without a gold subscription. If I turn on my Xbox one day and I just ran out of gold that day I can't even watch YouTube now? Why??

It's a trap, a greed one.

The real question is why do you not want to help fund the Infinite Power of the Cloud? Infinity isn't some bargain basement concept.

I'll tell you what. Microsoft will get rid of their paywall when you start using the search feature on this board. Does that sound fair?

Because you can't. Now shut up and deal with it.

You should show Microsoft. You should show them so good. You should let them know that you're going elsewhere for your media needs. That'll show them. That'll show them so good.

Pretty terrible business practice to encourage subscriptions. I think most people are not motivated by these services to get gold though, so all they are doing us hurting their more casual base.

The xb1 trolls believe this is a good thing. The sales discrepancy between the xb1 and the ps4 would indicate otherwise.

The Free Form of Xbox Live has always given you the 'basics'.. browse games, buy games, enjoy games.. single player of course..

Why anyone would go into Xbox One expecting for a grand turn around where the Free Form of Xbox Live suddenly lets you do everything for free is beyond my scope of understanding.

They want more money, it was not enough that you burned $500 on the X1 already.

MS is so anti consumer there's just no words to describe it.
If a bunch of knuckleheads hadn't gone all gushy fanboy and decided not to buy into the Gold hype, it may have ended different.
Blame the flaming fanboys not MS. They did it.
