Zombies? Awesome i want to play! Subscription fee? Ah eff it, nevermind. All I got to say. Subscription or "pay to play" COMPLETELY turns me away for good, never will touch it, never will play it just because of that. The "spend money for better things" is a much better model.

I dont know how it would work on Xbox. First you gotta buy the game, then you gotta pay for Live, then you gotta pay for the game fee, then add it to your internet bill. At the end of the month your paying 200 bucks just to play a game.

live is a yearly subscription. you don't need to buy it every time you buy a game, dont be a drama queen.
