What a rip off.

And thanks for reminding me I need to cancel my money gouging XBL service.

This is a bad marketing attempt for the simple reason that even tech heads like us can't seem to grasp just what exactly this deal is lol.

Seriously if it takes people on a forum called "overclock.net" 4 pages worth of posts to figure out just what the hell you do get with this deal then someone didn't do a good job somewhere lol.

I don't see how Microsoft gets away with charging people a subscription fee for the Gold Membership. It's not like you get anything for it, all the services like Netflix, Zune, etc charge their own separate fees. We pay $50 per year (or is it $60 now?) to be able to play our multiplayer games online... Makes no sense, I paid for the console, paid for the game, paid for my internet bill, and just for the hell of it they decide to tag on this nonsense. Makes me wish I had bought a PS3 every time I renew my Gold Membership mad.gif

/Off Topic

I really dislike the current market trend of subscription based services like this. Soon we'll be paying monthly fees for our Windows installations...

People who can afford this in the long run rather than short term.

Wow! I wish everyone did this.
If sony did something like this for the ps3 i might be interested. It would have to include the plus membership.
For some people, its hard to drop 400 on a console all at one time. (plus live fees.. of course the 360 hasn't been 400 in a while) I can definitely see this benefiting MS and the consumer.

Because 90% of the population are either too impatient, or just don't care enough to bother researching anything they buy.
