Did microsoft give a reason for doing this other then being greedy bastards? Either way i blame Phil Spencer.
1. Originally Xbox Live was Free *in the beginning*.
2. Playstation Plus is not free. ( http://us.playstation.com/psn/playstation-plus/ ) (Actually there's a great PA comic about this: http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/6/30/ )
3. It's a $10 increase, people. $10 over the course of an entire year.

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.
I think the multiplayer looks fun. And playstation is free online, Playstation plus is for people who get content early because they pay.
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.
Microsoft is a business... Of course they want money. If I ran a business I too would do the same. People will pay it so there is no sense in complaining about it.

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.
