Original-Gamer: "Xbox Live can be a little pricey for some, but now you can get it for close to half the price at Dell. All the racism you can handle for a fraction of the regular price."
Still a rip-off
Not really. LIVE has a lot of good features, especially the smaller ones that you would otherwise take for granted. What I don't like is that regular price is overpriced and MS doesn't give you any free bonuses. Still, all the features that go into LIVE wouldn't have been possible without people contributing towards it. MS had done a huge number on the structure of online when they first made LIVE and now that LIVE for Xbox 1 is dead they can make even more features (universal clans, for example). I like LIVE, but admittedly, $65 is ridiculous. eBay has a lot of prices ranging in the $30-$40 scope so it's manageable.
so what you mean is that you cant pay $2.50 every month? YOU have to be way poor! $2.50 OMG! I pay 4.58 monthly for my xboxlive service. But because is xbox live is rape right? Tell that to every MMO gamer in the planet who pay monthly to play a single game every month and buy stupid stuff for their character WITH REAL MONEY.
It is a rip. You know full well Microsoft doesn't need to charge that much and they're only doing it because we keep buying it. The profit margin must be tremendous it doesn't take that much to operate the online because we know PSN is operating just as well as XBL for free. Now as far as buying xbl gold I would not buy 2 for $60 because for 2 years you don't know if Microsoft might change there terms of service. I've bought a one year card for $30 so keep waiting. You don't want to commit yourself to two years.
3 years and counting and still have yet to pay more than 30 bucks a year for it.
It still says $44.99 for me.
Your late Deiser. This deal is dead on gone.
You have to get up early if you want to beat the N4G trolls.
your avatar reminds me of cid from final fantasy 7. awesome
i got my 13month one from ebay for 25$. they have them there every now and then
"all the racism you can handle" LOL anyone who've played on xbox live will tell you that.
Wow, probably the biggest scam ever.
"All the racism you can handle for a fraction of the price"
