Do people seriously not get that you have to pay for things in life? Is it so hard to just skip something they do not like instead of coming here each and every day to cry? Why can we not just say "Hey I don't like Live" and leave it at that instead of searching the internet for crappy little web sites that agree with their child like false rage? Why Is all my coffee gone?


this....
i thought it was ridiculous that they compared xbox live to steam and ps+. those are completely different services.

I have no issue paying for Xbox Live. Especially when I can get it for about $3.50 a month when the cards are on sale. It seems the people that complain the most don't even have an Xbox.

No. They don't know the definition of "scam"

You wanna know a real scam? Went to Chipotle yesterday with a chick, she ordered guacamole on her burrito...those tricky sons of guns charged me like an extra $2 for guac without asking me.

Time to flip over every table in a 10 mile radius, I hope you guys aren't eating lunch on one.


That's funny. I used Chipolte as an example for people complaining about the DLC for Dead Space 3.

So that is why my burrito was so damn expensive. I believe it was just a beef burrito with quac, and the total came close to 10 dollars(No drink or sides.) I haven't been there in so long, so I looked confused at the cashier who in turn looked confused at me. I said alright and bought it, but I haven't been back since.

No one is offering the same thing for free, unless you mean netflix and hulu without a subscription.

Have you ever been on PSN? You can't even send voice chat unless they changed it. WTF? I have a wireless keyboard, but most people do not.

No party chat? I have to listen to a bunch of whiny kids try to argue with my friends on xbox live? I prefer parties. Heck, I'm almost always in a party, and half the time we're playing different games.

Xbox live is a social gaming experience. As much as I do not like paying for it, I love the service.

It reminds me of teamspeak or ventrillo on PC. Except it's done easier IMO.

I would not go back to PS3's awful online. I can't imagine being in a clan on PS3.

Meh, it's $5 a month and no free disposable accounts keeps out the rift-raft.


No it doesn't. Hacking, cheating & immature 8 year olds cursing racial slurs is the norm on Xbox Live.

Maybe at first when Live first started up on the original Xbox, but as it got popular, the rift-rafts caved in on the monthly fee!

So, you can sit here and b**** about it "B-b-but it isn't fair that I have p-p-pay for it" or you can use one of those other consoles. I don't mind paying $5(less is you find any one of the very common deals) for a better service that has better games(psn games can't compare to xbla), and that all my friends use. Not being a fanboy, as I own all 3, and it is my informed opinion that xbl has the best service.

You're either misinformed or being a drama queen. Those things exist, but you calling them the norm is laughable. They are very much a minority, and exist in every online service, but at least XBL has active mods and a pretty decent investigation team that deals with them making it a more policed community.
