Do you also want them to make a profit on console sales like they should? Instead of taking a loss on them should they sell consoles for $800 or whatever would get them the same profit margin as selling a dvd player or computer or other electronics? Or should they sell the xbox at a price which is less than what it costs them to manufacture just like they always have?


Although I don't agree with TC, this is ridiculous. Consoles have almost always been sold at a loss long before MS started charging for gold. The money is made on the sale of games and peripherals.

So if you don't use the service, you won't pay for it, but if it's free than you're all for using it. I guess the same holds true for...... i don't know, everything that has ever existed in the universe that costs money. Have fun dealing with life.

yes exactly my point. hence why other things are often paid for at an inflated cost. robust online options are not something that has always exsisted and when online or similar options did exist, they usually came with some kind of cost like paying for the online adapter.
