Yeah people are over reacting with the price increase... That is less than a dollar extra a month guys. Playstation plus though IMO is a better deal, as you get free games every month that you would normally have to pay for, which I think is how playstation plans to one up MS in their online features.
It's not that a dollar breaks the bank, it's just that the dollar is not needed. Micro$oft already makes mad bank of us, i don't like being nickel and dimed. As for the co-op, I'm still skeptical this will be a good game. Peters blown things out of proportion before.

Wirelesscandi.... No, that is not it. Like I said people who pay for plus also get PSone and minis for free a game is chosen each month and if yo have plus you get it for free. There are other perks to plus as well but I do not recall them off the top of my head.
3. It's a $10 increase, people. $10 over the course of an entire year.
This, I'm ashamed to say I spent $60 on an MMO for 4 months. That's just one game, that i didn't really enjoy that I got peer pressured into playing. Having XBL lets me play all my games online. So therefor, not having XBL is like me throwing away my Halo 3 + ODST disks, my CoD4 disk, and my MW2 disk (which i should throw away anyway), because there is no way I'm going to play the crappy campaigns again... You can say I'm the kind of person who would pay whatever Microsoft asks, maybe I am, but I've never payed the full $50 for a card anyway, shop online and look for deals.
Also, Newegg has 12 Month cards for $30 go buy like 3 of them... Even after thats done I bet you could shop around online and never pay $60 for another card after Nov. anyway.
