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?


Well when every other system offers the same thing for free it is a scam and 60$ is alot to some people not everyone is fortunate to have alot of money


Are you just unaware of the definition of the word scam or are you truly that ignorant? It is only a scam if people do not know what they are getting into before they pay. And last I checked Live and it's cost are both very well known.

Do you seriously not get MS is the only gaming platform that charges to play online and does it for no reason?

b-but MUH PARTY CHAT
MUH SECURE SERVERS


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.


And yet if it was free it would still be the best. The only reason it still costs money is because people still pay for it like MS still has a monopoly on online console gaming and they don't.


Says who? Maybe they use the money they make from xbl to make the constant improvements that make it the best online service.

PSN on PS4 will be much more advanced than the current Xbox Live, and it will still be free to play online, so how do you justify that?

By not believing rumors from trolls who really have no clue what the future holds for any console not on the market yet.

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.


you asked for it.. thats like asking for a coke and being pissed you got charged.. EVERY place in florida charges for Guac its an expensive delicacy

Joke post is joke...I didn't truly care, just never knew they did that. I don't charge extra for guac at my restaurant, though it is quite expensive to make. Also, I did not ask for it, the woman did.

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

I'm envisioning a bunch of Rift game cases tied together to make a flotation device.


I like your imagery. It's just sad that the poster who originally said it wasn't aware that the word is "riffraff" not "rift-raft".
