Being able to play online...

Yea, Silver's can play online those days

Kahvipannu3007d ago

Oh, sorry guys, I miss readed the article, and tought they get everything except online play from now on April 1st. Didn't notice the thing its 1st to 5th. My bad.

Anyways, nice one from Microsoft, tought Live isn't that expencive.

I don't know if I would call it a gift. It's not like MS is trying to be nice, they are trying to get people to upgrade from Silver to Gold. You could say it was being nice, but it's a pretty transparent move.

Exactly, it's an incentive to upgrade.

yea I know, i stated that in the last part. It is really kind of a 50/50 I think. yea they are trying to convert new customers, but it can also be viewed as a tiny gift I think. Gift to silver members who want to try Gold for free, business for Microsoft in gaining new customers. That's just me.

Yes, I totally agree with you guys, that it's just for to get new subscriptions. But still it doesn't change the thing that silvers are getting the free gold-time.

Why don't they just get Gold benefits for life?

Money. This isn't done as a favour, it's it the hopes of baiting a few silver members into an upgrade.

Which is fair I suppose, how do you know what your missing unless you get to try it. Although dont all 360's come with some free Live time, a month or so?
