My friends and I all have x1 and i asked them if they think Gold is a ripoff to which they replied "yes" yet they all have it and renew it annually. Is this "support it sadly" behavior the case for the rest of you? Wonder if the majority of the xbl community is based off a "cant beat, join em" mentality.

It's not a ripoff. $5 a month isn't that big of a deal.

Far from a ripoff, $60 a year for 1000+ Hours of entertainment.

Certain aspects are a rip off but if you're a gamer and into playing online consistently then it's of no consequence.

Now if you don't play online but want to utilize Netflix and HBOGo then yes it's a ripoff

how is it a rip of when you can easily not pay it....you just can't use their servers haha. I mean it's not a ripoff if you want to use their servers. It's just their "rule" you have to pay to use their service they are providing like any other service you don't go to the grocery store and say why should have to pay $10 for a steak when I can go to the farm and get it cheaper and cut out the middle man.....if you can make your own serves and games go for it other wise you have to pay to use the service they provide or go to a different service. There are options

Proudly pay for it. They do give away free games and allow you to watch movies for free at times.

I think for 95% of gamers, it is a good deal. But for those who only want to stream media, you should probably get a different device.

If you are paying full price for xbox live, you are doing it wrong.

I don't think it's a ripoff, it's still the best console online service out there

Having to pay extra on both consoles to play the game I bought on the internet I pay for is a rip off. I don't care about free old games free crappy movies or free iPad quality indie games.
