XBL Gold is a scam. We all know that. It was anti-consumer, but no one can deny that it was a giant cash cow for them last gen.

Unless you're a basement dwelling, antisocial hermit, the online experience is an essential part of current gen consoles. The problem for Microsoft? Everyone wants the PS4 as their primary console.

Well, that's okay, since people can just buy the Xboner as their secondary console, right? Wrong. Very few people are willing to be multiconsole-owners this gen because they don't want to pay for both LIVE and PS+.

Isn't it ironic? The scheme that was supposed to make billions for MS is now going to net them billions of losses. We all know what MS needs to do. Remove multiplayer paywall, but they'll never do that.

Who said God doesn't exist? He's punishing Microsoft right now.
