They should make it free with next system. Main reason psn blew by live in subscriptions was cause it's free
Ya, it has nothing to do with the fact that it is on 2 consoles for them(PSP and PS3). --- A Jose Canseco bat? Tell me...you didn't pay money for this. http://www.zreomusic.com/Zelda25.jpg =-= http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2v965tv&s=7
The price of the system and the cost of online service are mutually exclusive to me. If the system is $600 and I can afford it, and I decide to stick with Xbox/Microsoft, which I probably will, then I will buy it. Besides, the next Xbox and Sony system will almost definitely go the way of the current gen, in terms of multiple options for systems with various memory capacities. Gone are the days of one version of a system.
Would I like to see Live free? Sure, we all would. Do I expect it to ever happen? Nope. Does that bother me? No. It is what it is, and that's all it's going to be. The cost of it has no bearing on the price of the system for me. --- Mud Crabs and Trolls and Dragons, oh my! Unofficial slogan of the GameFAQs Skyrim board.
I like the fact that it's a pay service - it helps hold people accountable for their actions. With a free service, all an abuser need to do is create a new account and they can continue using the service no matter how heinous their actions have been. --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMKUUUvjjzo Fan of: Steelers(AFC Champs), Red Wings(Central Champs)
If they want to continue to keep it a tightly controlled walled garden then it will not be free. --- Opened, gutted games are used games when Gamestop, EB or anyone opens them. Demand a discount or buy it Factory Sealed from somewhere else.
