What makes you think I pay for XBL so that I can play online?

I pay for XBL because I like all the features it has to offer me vs. what the competition offers me for free.

Being able to play online with my XBL gold membership is just a free bonus.

Good_Guy_Jamal1159d ago

You're a minority on that one bro. If it wasn't for the superior multiplayer features (including multiplayer) I would not pay for xbox live. Entertainment features be damned.

matrixman921159d ago

i will gladly pay for the subscription for party chat and cross game chat

stage881159d ago

Wait, so you like paying to access the other stuff like Netflix? Whaaa?

Gamer-Z1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

The only thing live offers is more chat options and the ability to play your games online that's it everything else you can do for free on any other devise or console.

StrongMan1159d ago

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let me get this straight. You pay for XBL to use Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube? Wow.

"Being able to play online with my XBL gold membership is just a free bonus"

Wow. You have to pay MS to play the multi player portion of your games and you spin it as "just a free bonus"? Wow, just.....wow

dantesparda1158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

Paying to play online and unlock the other half of your game, what a pack of suckers!

I swear I've heard this once or twice on this site before.

Mottsy1159d ago

Amen Jesus! Ya seems alot of people are very concerned about what other people do with their own hard earned money. To each his/her own gals and fellas. Its been years since xbox has been charging for this service. If the consumers still want to pay for it then get over it, has little to no affect on you.

ArmrdChaos1159d ago

You mean your not pulling in your Digital Stations off an antenna? I hear it is free.

$35 bucks is like 3 bucks a month, it is not a big deal as all it takes is one less beer or one less Starbuck coffe per month and you will be OK. It is not like you have to reserve to Ramen Noodle and tap water to play on Live.

PeaSFor1159d ago

i could also take a dump on your head for 2$ per months, its cheap so if we follow your logic you have no reason to be against it eh?

all i see is you being confused about your own ridiculous logic.

Jek_Porkins1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

$35 is just outrageous, oh whatever shall we do?!?
I've never paid more than $35 for a year of Xbox Live, wish I could get these types of deal with my phone service or cable provider...lol

I think people are just mad that gamers actually enjoy a service like Xbox Live enough to keep paying for it, it actually increased by 15% this year, which is huge. Too bad I already bought two of these cards earlier in the year when they were only $29.99, but they only let you enter one at a time.....

StrawberryDiesel4201158d ago

No, I'm mad that I pay for my fucking internet and cable bill so I can access the internet and then I have to pay more so I can play a game I already payed for online when I already pay for online and cable! Most children who don't pay their own bills and only pay for Live and games won't understand this concept unfortunately.

Jek_Porkins1158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

I'm not a child, I pay the bill just like all my other bills. I mean I have a $5 a month checking account fee that is more than my Xbox Live bill per month.

Also, I can get television for free, but I choose to pay for premium services. It'd be like complaining about paying extra for HBO when you already pay for normal cable. Premium is premium and if you don't like it, don't buy it, there are alternatives.

amiga-man1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

Paying to use their internet and they think its a good deal, all those saying it's for cross game chat wake up everyone else including microsoft know if they gave free internet access (as it should be) subscriptions would take a huge hit, M$ has them by the balls and they defend it, mugs the lot of them.

RuleofOne343 1159d ago

I pay my electric & Cable bill to us my internet XBL, Netflix ,Hulu ,amazon prime, Crackle & all other Apps ,features are entertainment offerings which I have no problems paying for. One more thing no one has me by anything, what irks me are those entitleitis.

amiga-man1159d ago

I too pay my electric etc Witwicky and as you point out we both pay our internet provider for our internet access, so why are you paying microsoft exactly for your internet?
Netflix you pay for but again to access it you have to pay M$ who are not your internet provider (cable seems to be yours) if you want to pay for things like netflix etc fine but why exactly do microsoft take your internet away and expect you to pay to get it back and why do you accept it?
