I hate micro-transactions. For fuck's sake, just bill it all into the initial offering price! If I want it I buy the WHOLE PACKAGE.

60 a year for Live isn't really what most people pay. Heck I jumped on the deal that gave me 2 months for 2 bucks and unless another deal pops up like that i'm not resubscribing when I can play my PS3 online for free. The gold membership should be for accessing demos, and other exclusive combat. Getting better deals etc, it may sound like i'm talking PS Plus , but if your going to charge 60 a year you better have some extra bonuses for those who are subscribed.

I can't see Microsoft losing that much money though. They supply most schools around the country with copies of Windows and Microsoft equipment etc. Most businesses I know of run off microsoft too. Until I see actual proof I'm gonna go on believing Microsoft makes plenty more than that.

Ok I read the article now and if F2P comes to Xbox 360 that'd hopefully encourage more Free to come to the 360. MMO's arent my thing though

give me a game i can play for free and i will gladly throw some dollars at the developers for micro transaction and what not.
