Xbox Live should be free at this point.

And have it resemble PSN?

No thanks.

Have your parents give you a bigger allowance so you can pay for it, make good grades in school and college, and then one day you too will be an adult with a good paying job and scoff at the $60 a year price tag. Of course, by THEN it will probably be $80 a year, but hopefully you'll simply shrug at that too. Unless of course you're just making minimum wage and the Republicans continue to keep you in the lower class. :)


You mean ad-free, fully functional, and easy to use and navigate?

If you can afford a console that'll probably start at 400 USD, then you can afford a 60 dollar subscription. Hell some places are selling XBL for a year for around 40. If they did make it free at this point, that'd alienate the current users that have been paying for years. I'd be pretty pissed tbh.


You would be pissed if they announced that starting on X date, you will no longer have to pay to use XBL?

Or, alternatively: sterile, lifeless, boring, and mostly silent when playing online games?

Umad? I'm sorry if I bothered most of you butthurt Microsoft fanboys lol. I'm only creating a discussion about how Sony could possibly whoop Microsoft's ass next gen if they don't step up and make XBL free.


There's a reason it isn't free. Superior service. And I own both consoles.


I own both consoles. At least the FREE PSN doesn't have advertisements staring you in the ****ing eye when you log in. Turn it on, and it's straight to business. The GUI is a lot better than Xbox's, and there aren't as many a-holes on the service.

Of course, the PC trumps everything. Only reason I even have an Xbox is because my friend loves fondling Halo's nuts and my other friend is too ****ing lazy to get a gaming PC.


So because your friend likes a game that you apparently don't, you bought an Xbox and paid for XBL?

You're whipped.

Get friends to play, and theres much more than enough activuty on PSN to find games as easily as XBL.

Except that people are still willing to pay for it, so why would they make it free?

I'd be incredibly happy if I got party chat and online play for free. They are literally the only things I use Live for anymore. I've been paying for Live since 2007.

If the only change they made was gaming was free i would instantly drop Gold.
