It's the only console you can play halo on so that alone is the reason I buy live but im done with xbox after this gen and just going to stick with my wii u and maybe down the line i'll get a ps4. But xbox im done they dont have any exclsives I like and halo isnt really as fun anymore to me.

Don't get me wrong, I know it's a good service. It just feels... wrong. I can't explain it, and I'm not expecting you to agree with me, but I can't agree with spending the extra money.


Then don't post a topic asking for reasons if the only one you have is your subjective "feeling". We can't argue with your "it feels wrong" statement - to you, it does. It's asinine to make a topic about rational reasons to pay for Xbox LIVE when you don't have a single rational reason NOT to.

its 10 dollars a month that's nothing no justification needed

Same way I justify the light bill

if I want it I have to pay for it

do I think electricity and natural gas is expensive

Hell yeah I'd rather that be free too

but as long as they have what I want, I have to pay for it

I can heat my home with a fire, and entertain myself by singing hymns by it

but I'd rather just live and take advantage of the progressions of modern society

Xbox offers security with their online. PS3 does not protect your personal info and HAS been hacked leading the leak of many people's personal info.

It's funny because these topics pop up when PSN is Down Again.

TC if you can't justify paying for something for a service has it ever occurred to you that you don't need to pay for it?
#78CalistoCoonPosted 2/5/2013 4:43:20 PM
I don't have to, I'm an adult, who do I need to justify it to?

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

To break it down further, it's about 10 cents a day. I probably spend more on running my heat for an extra fifteen minutes every morning.
