If Microsoft wants to charge to use XBL it should at least have some dedicated servers, i hate having to play off a host, so often they quit and the game takes a min to reconnect. with dedicated servers that isn't a problem. As is i don't see why it costs so much considering steam does it all and better for free.

I think those who dont realise how messed up the retail model is for the box have their head stuck in the sand.

the xbox360 model compared to older generations is pretty bad paying multiple times for the same product etc. but is also unique in the current generation that one has to pay for an online gateway.

netflix etc. dont use microsoft bandwidth, the xbox360 is just a portal to those services, and bandwidth used by digital content you buy is covered by the cost of paying for the content.

Given the amount of control your captors have over you soon they will be brazen enough to bring you out into public where someone might happen to notice you and you might be rescued.

Hey dedbus, why don't you invite me to a party on PSN and we'll talk about it.

You can do that, right?
