I know XBox live is cool, supposdely and has all these "awesome" features but man 50 dollars to play online! Online play is just to play games with your friends/strangers without them having to come over, or to play games with your friends with u have the whole screen (no more FPS screen looky) but i think microsoft is stupid to make people have to pay 50 dollars to play online, who cares if the interface isnt "top nouch" like the ps2's online but its free its decent and thats all the really matter, even though it could use match making and some features that would make contacting and playing with your friends a little easier but 50- 70 dollars just to play a game online its really stupid.
Becuase if your like me i dont buy another game to i finish the one i have, and if i want to play that game online i would have to pay 50 dollars.. and microsoft is SO greedy its not even for ever, its just for a mesely year.. so to put this is "prespective" if u ONLY get ONE game and a XBox 360 and plan on having it for 5 years this is how its going to be
Xbox 360- 300 - 400 Dollars
A Game- 50- 60 dollars
Xbox Live X5- 250 to 270 dollars (270 if u get the 70 dollar one and 4 years worth) so people considering that Xbox live is "good and cheap" with that money u could buy ANOTHER xbox360 or another Game console, or a PSP, and guess what.. all your getting is Online play.. and this is only considering if u have ONE game...and u dony buy any of those stupid "marketplace points" Microsoft may have the better console, but not the the cheaper in the long Term Console... because if u conpare this to the Current PS2 news its bad
Games- 50 -60
Online- Free *as in right now*
so basically if u get a ps3 and have it for 5 years with one game it will only cost u the amount of a ps3 and one game compared to the xbox360's the console, the game, and 250 dollars...
Anyway im just taking the time to point out Xbox Live is a ripoff in the long and short term.. and they could AT LEAST have the sliver package like 70 hours of online play a week or something omg there so greedy...
