How will Microsoft handle Xbox Live Gold for the next gen?

I hope it doesn't go free. It'd be as crappy as PSN.

However I wish they would change it so you can watch netflix on silver.

Yes they'll charge.

It'll stay the same price as a retail game unless that changes too.

There is no reason not to. Playstation online has been free for over a decade, it has yet to cause Microsoft any worry about charging for live. Competitors have been given more than enough chance to match it, the fact that they resort to a rental service instead of an online service speaks volumes.

They should lower it to 30 or 40 bucks. Anyone with a brain pays that much anyways.

They'll charge b/c they'd be absolutely insane not to. I don't think they'll raise the price again, but I think that they could get away with $70/year. Especially since any semi-savvy consumer knows they don't pay full price anyway.

I know a lot of people complain about paying for xbl but trust me, you don't want psn quality online services which is what you would get if it was free. Hopefully they just keep it the same price.

They're going to raise the price most likely. They've already hinted that they will raise it soon by reminding about all the apps you get to use

Honestly, I really want to know something.

All who claim PSN is "garbage", whats your reasoning? You have never used/compared it? You haven't touched it since before 09? Still holding Anon against Sony? Or just trying to justify $60 a year?

I got use to paying Xbox Live for a long time and to me, it's just a regular Bill the way I see it but I do try to find cheap 1 year Gold whenever I can but Amazon has them cheap so I try them first. [the same thing goes for PS Plus]
Until we get to E3 this year, we shall see what MS will do for Xbox Live.
P.S, Hey MS please no more Gears and Halo in next-gen please. It is time for something new Exclusive.

You DO realize that 343 just took over Halo and have plenty more to work on right? Halo isn't going anywhere anytime soon. It's the face of Xbox and sells millions of copies. They'd be fools not to make more!

But yes...I do agree that we need more original IP exclusives.
