Aeropause has an editorial about the lack of value in the Live for Windows initiative.
"So looking at this, users have been asked to pay for a $50 membership to Live for two games at this point. How does Microsoft think they can pull the wool over the eyes of so many PC players? For someone like myself, that has a Live account via my 360; it is not a big deal as I get access to both systems for the same price. But if I did not have my 360, I would be asked to pay $50 to play two games."
