Microsoft has said they will be offering free access to Xbox Live Gold during this weekend - Nov 20 - Nov 23 to all Xbox 360 owners.
Sw33t Free stuff! Xbox Live should be made free permanently IMO, hopefully there's some kind of glitch and it's free for ever lol.
"hopefully there's some kind of glitch and it's free for ever" Laughed my but off at that. We all hope that happens.
I agree LIVE should be free... PSN provides ALL the fundamentals for enjoyable online gaming FOR FREE... But Microsoft know people will continue paying since its in the Xbox users nature to pay for it (its the norm for them)... Sad but true... It should be free... But from a business standpoint (despite it being unethical) its a very good move by MS since they make a lot of monies...
If the PS3 overtakes the 360 in sales, MS will make moves to make XBL free. Try to do it in such a way that that's not why they're doing it. If they go the other way and put out a new console when the industry's really just getting its feet into this gen, it'll be a disaster. For everybody.
I'm surprised they didn't make it free years ago from the huge competition between the PS3 and 360. I thought they would want to make Live free as possible since PSN is free.
get the feel for the new facebook and last.fm and other community stuff gold offers. I can see a few trading in their free accounts for paid ones. 20% off currently.
*Blows dust off of 360* Let's rock, Halo 3.
Free would be cool, but they really can't do that. Their are too many 12 month gold cards, and if it was free they would be screwing over all the gold members like myself who use cards. They should give silver members more options, but making Live free is out of the question My idea is if you have gold, MS gives you 100 MSpoints per month. Therefore, 1 month goes from $8 to $6.75, 3 month goes from $20 to $16.25, and 12 month from $50 to $35. Best part is the money they are getting back is being forced to be spent on XBL products.
Free forever? That'd be nice.
I think M$ is stuck with the XBLA. They can't make it free because there must be millions of users with yearly subscription. If they go free, would they really wana screw their loyal fanbase? Yeah, I don't think so. It's a shame they are charging so much money for the same thing that's free on PSN. Believe me when I tell you that all that crap XBLA is better than PSN is actually crap! They are both great services and both should be free unfortunately, that's not true and M$ keeps charging them $$$ for every little god damn thing!
Aw. I'm so lazy I don't want to unhook my PS3 from the television and rehook my 360 into it. Lame. HALOOO!!!!!! My dear friend. I'm sorry. Next time, with your sibling Reach. We will have good times.
Shouldn't it be free all year long? What a joke, won't fool me again.
Sweetie i doubt this will be the last time you'll be fooled, and I bet you believed your parents when they said you weren't adopted!
Hmm, maybe this is my time to try out Perfect Dark Zero online multiplayer if anyone even still plays that...
That game is awful. If you have any fond memories of it, make them stay memories. You will be disappointed if you go back to that game.
Well I've only played offline and with bots, I'd like to try playing online at least once. I know it's vastly different from the first one and not as good ( in my eyes ) but, it's not horrible to the point of putting my eyes out with cigarette butts :p.
The jig is up!?!? No more sub fees!?!?
If LIVE Gold ever goes free PSN would be made obsolete in nearly every way. I don't get why MS doesn't do it. I guess they like the money. But Sony is building up its online Services fast. If anybody heard, Sony is planning to reinvent its online with a universal system for all its products. The PSN is going to get much better, though it will attach a subscription for premium service. Anyways, the point is, LIVE is great, and this is a good way to recruit people.
Yay, free gold weekend! But that dosen't put me in a position where i need to pay for live..Psn is better anyway lol. Off to GEARS! AKA LAGFEST.
I'm waaaaay to cheap to pay for live
NO WAY!!! You mean I can be called a "Gay C*nt Homo N*gger Jew" for free?!
this include the banned xbox´s? they are xbox owners as well.
How happy the xbox silver owners are
