How do you justify the costs for Xbox Live?

I will say though that I don't have gold now, and haven't had it for about a year because I just don't utilize it enough anymore...maybe when I get the itch to play online again or something, but for now I don't miss it.

also, 40 bucks a year, which is around what I end up paying cause good deals are always out there, isn't near as bad for the service - 60 bucks is something I will never pay for live, that's just my stance on it.

I just wish I could see my backgrounds, all I ask -_-

Well I am envious of all those Xbox Live Arcade games, that are mostly exclusive to that service.

I don't buy gold. Buying my 360 cleaned me out, and being told im mentally unable to work kinda limits your spending.

Not changing this until Capcom either gets their act together or the company goes under (Dragon's Dogma was a good start, to say nothing of Dark Arisen.)

It gives me a lag-free, and all-around good experience, especially when half-off. /topic

Also, can you people stop making these topics? My ignore list is getting bigger.

You know why these topics are useless? Because for literally 5+ years whenever someone throws out the justifications for Live's cost there is never a rebuttal---at all.

The same way I justify the costs for anything else in life.

I'm not poor, so I don't care. Herp.

Because it won't get hacked like that second hand PSN.

I pay $3 a month for it. At that rate, I don't feel a need to 'justify' anything.


This.

If you feel that $3 a month is in any way a dent in your wallet, you shouldn't be playing video games.

I have an xbox 360.
I want to play online.
I like having parties outside of games.

Why the **** do I have to justify?

I feel like it. That is why.
Jesus these topics are ridiculous.

It's the same price as a game (as it's been from the start when playing online and DLC were the only features), and the only other online experience I've had is with the DS and Wii.
