Why Xbox Live gaming should be free for all

Don Reisinger Writes:

"Over the weekend, I spent some time playing online. I did so on Xbox Live and through games on both my PS3 and Wii.

If u are paying for dsl, then paying for 360 repels the new consumers, who DON"T know about live.

And the many features it has.

might only turn on his console twice a week therefore £1.50 per night...?

Other days whilst theyre not donating to charity, money is being wasted on absolutely NOTHING

6 months ago he said he still believed the 360 could end up number 1 this generation. Now he says the 360 is starting to look like the "also ran" in the group. Talk about flip flopping.

microsoft has already lost this gen of gaming. at least they can make sure sony comes in third.. nintendo knew what it was doing all along...creating something brand new

And Microsoft has convinced 11 million suckers to fork over 50 bucks a year to play a handful of games online, not to mention on an unstable piece of hardware. HAHAHAHAHA

Is the day Playstation online wins,its saying Microsoft is no longer the king in online service's. HOME maybe the SILVER BULLET or LITTLE BIG PLANET may do the job.
PS3 in the US is winning,4 months straight the PS3 out sold the 360 in the US.
