Changes to Xbox One & Xbox Live Services: Customer Satisfaction or Financial Loss?

Cody Fye of Gaming Tech United writes:

"So a couple of days ago Xbox announced a few changes they are making to the Xbox One & Xbox live services. To me, this not only shows they should’ve listened to the consumers sooner, but that because of their inability to listen, they could be taking a hit financially based on poor decision making."

"Certain customers mainly use their consoles for entertainment app usage, which means certain customers not only pay $7.99/mo on Netflix and/or Hulu plus, but also an additional $15/mo just to use it on their console."

Credibility shot... Who is paying an extra $15 a month for live AKA $180 a year? Perhaps I'm reading it wrong.

Okay, definitely wasn't reading it wrong as now the article had been updated from $15 to $9. Still wrong, who is paying $108 a year for live just to use Netflix... You can find 12 months for $35.

It's $25 for a 3 month gold card, if you pay for xbl month by month it can be expensive, but for some it seems easier to pay little by little instead of all upfront

I'd like to know who's paying $500 for a brand new Xbox to just watch Netflix or use ie.. Lol

Its a ridiculous argument if you ask me

N4rc it is a ridiculous argument that I find from Sony super time force that people would buy a xbox one or ps4 just for netflix. It's really stupid to say u buy xbox one one or a ps4 just to watch netflix?? Really retarded when all fanboys spew is it's all about the games, I can watch netflix on at least 5 devices in my home, my phone, my tv, my iPad , my iPod, my 360 my ps3, to the comment down below talking about older friends spending 120 bucks , u have special friends, I work at a gypsum mine in bc, in my 40s, have a coworker that plays cod in his 50s and neither of us have ever paid 120 bucks for live .. How retarded do u have to be? It sounds like u r full of crap, I don't know nobody that bought gold just to watch netflix, when there's all kinds of streaming boxes! Fanboys stop with the bs please I have had gold since xbox OG lol, sometimes it amazes me especially from the Sony fa base the comments I see

I had several friend who paid for live and used the apps more then multiplayer and they paid monthly with a credit card which cost them 120$ a year it wasnt until I told them it was cheaper to by a whole year up front they started doing so. Also I keep seeing people post this crap about buying gold cards for 35,45 and 50$ I tried many times and never found any card cheaper then 60$ a year.

I take it you must be the brightest out of all your friends. You should end your friendships if they couldn't figured that out on their own. Their future looks dim.

They're older gamers (late 40s early 50s)

Pay attention to it when the holidays roll around. Every year I pay 40 for 12 months because it always goes on sale somewhere :).

LOL, Menkyo...that just makes them sound even dumber. Maybe they only have 4th grade educations?

Oh, how things have changed since the reveal of the xbone!
Now M$ is stripping and barking the Xbone without mercy in pursuit of profitability!
They really don't understand what they are doing... what a waste.
I wonder what would be left of the Xbone by the time it reaches One year old...
Bare Bones or Cross Bones?
