GoozerNation takes a look at the details of the Xbox Live Gold Family Pack, which includes 4 gold memberships or less than the retail price for 2, and discusses some of the offered security features.
"stuck playing PS3 games online for the past several years." Makes it sound like it's a bad thing O_o
It wasn't the best for a few years. Example, PSn has improved vastly since release and added trophies etc, XBL, has been the way it is now since release. Except they added party chat. One thing MS has done right is the XBL service. Cost is too much for me these days though haha, naw i'll get a month of it for Gears 3. Pc has had all features and more of both consoles so eh..ya
I like the xbox Live part... ... I just don't like the tranfer of cash per month.
We're an Xbox Live Gold Kind of Family "we are a dumb family"
I like Xbox Live as much as the next guy, but having to pay to play multiplayer for a bit here and there just doesn't seal the deal with me anymore
I have been a day one Gold live subscriber.. many around here cant say that.. I am didnt renew this past time and I realized what a waste of buying games which I cant play since I wont pay to play on Live.. hence Gears is the only title I will buy for my 360 and I will get a 3 month pass on the cheap to play it online.. that trade the game in.. only have to thank MS for NOT having games for us core users, vs them catering to the casual crowd
Obviously, I am in a different "core" than you are.
I believe that Microsoft needs another "hook" to keep people paying Xbox Live Gold membership dues. I'm not sure what that could possibly be, however they need to make mulitplayer free. Its still confusing to me what I'm paying for outside of weekly deals on games. I grudgingly pay for it, if only to have access to the aforementioned deals and mulitplayer whenever I want it.
. It is the only thing that makes since if you have 2 or more people in a household gaming on XBL. I understand the " stuck playing PS3 " as most gamers are playing 360, especially a game like Halo where kids can spend hours fooling around with each other on something like forge. Sony has some creative games as well like LBP but most games nobody ever heard off except for fanboys. If I buy a multi-plat on PS3, there would be a riot around here...lol Sony better NEVER change the free to play set up they started this gen with because I believe that is the one thing that has saved them this gen. People out there do NOT want to pay to play online and maybe if Sony was more popular, M$ would have to reduce the cost, not increase it. Right now, M$ is laughing all the way to the bank but that will change...HOPEFULLY. btw...Sony has the worst OS ever in the history of gaming. There is a reason Future shop/best buy offers a set up fee for that thing. Why Sony doesn't invest in that aspect of the PS3 is beyond me...I don't even want to mention the controller. :/
