Things that makes sense behind the paywall:
Games for Gold
Skydrive
Upload Studio
Multiplayer (ONLY if MS provides all servers)
Discount for games (Gold has additional discount)

Almost all the other s--- really doesn't need to be behind the pay wall. Not even OneGuide.

Microsoft is making money on that paywall, let's be honest. And while we're being honest, gaming is a LUXURY hobby. If you can't afford $60 for a year of a service, you shouldn't own the $500 system the $60 service supports because you clearly can't afford it.
ALL games should have a Single Player mode. I can always guarantee I want to play when I turn on my system. I can't guarantee others will at the same time.

Sorry. MS won this one when Sony started charging too. They should, if anything, introduce more paywalls. Like saving your games and ensuring buttons don't stop working randomly.

No they don't. If you have an xbox and play it you probably have Gold.
Hmm a flag with the peace symbol on it. Your militant dictatorship can't have that, now can it Mario?

That's one aggravating defense I see the most here. "You're poor, you shouldn't game. Just deal with the paywall. I'm not poor, why are you so poor?"

That's a really low blow. Just saying.

Remove Netflix, IE, and other non XBL related functions from the paywall.

I can more then afford gold, heck ive bought 5-6 new release games on day 1 in a month & id never buy gold. It really doeant make sense to put everything behind it just cause a company is greedy.

You missed out on a ton then, and never experienced the system to the fullest. Like having a huge, new 60" inch top of the line tv, but not having hi def cable.

I never had a gold account ether. It's pointless, I don't play online. Unless it's PC.
