I hope this happends... We pay the bandwidth. I know you all want things for free, and you believe you are entitled to. But remove you broke as* of the network until I can download the stuff I want first; then and only then, you should be allowed to. Works in the real world, I pay for a service; why should silver accounts get what I get. Besides xbox live has always being acused of not being free. Some people even say that you have to pay for every single feature. I say bring it up, all these silver accounts are just slowing my bandwidth.

I agree! Silver users - pay the price or get in line.

Watchoo been smokin', Bub? :|

And yeah, although this is old news...already discussed here last week... I still agree with MS on this.

You never watched Austin Powers?

The first one was so retarded, I lost interest halfway through, and returned it for credit. :O

I pay for a Xbox Live Gold Membership. I would hope that I get this kind of perk. If you don't have Gold, I say that you are missing out anyways.

First of all let me say, I am a Gold Member.
But this will give PS3 Fanniboyz more fodder for the fire. Are we getting nervous, Microsoft?

BIadestarX4467d ago

Actually Microsoft would be doing the other way arround if they were nervous. Maybe giving more to silver accounts. Also, why don't we wait until Sony releases the PS3 and their so call "everything free" service in order to make an intelligent comparison. If the PS3 online service suck a** the same way the PS2 or the psp then there will not be much flame, now would it.
