Seriously? That's 25 cents! Required to pay to play online, ads plastered all over the dashboard, and the sales and rewards are pathatic. Xbox live is fueled by greed. The ps3 offers and optional pay service that actually gives free games and good sales..., Steam gives crazy sales for FREE

That's a lot of points. You should be happy.

Are you used to paying to receive a sale?

L See this is what happens with PSN+, kids grow up to be spoiled self-entitled rotten brats. XBL builds character and humility, and is thus far superior.

XBL users do. If they still restrict content to Gold members.

Didn't even sign up for it, cause of the ptiful rewards.

Bing rewards are awesome though. Got Artorias of the Abyess for free because of it. Saved up another 400 mspoints so far as well.

So XBL users only get access to sales when they purchase a Gold membership?

I know you like the 360, but this is just silly.
#19 Posted by Killzonage (408 posts) -
LMFAO Playstation plus makes it my birthday every month with great free games.
#20 Posted by ShadowMoses900 (17081 posts) -

I think XBL it's self is a joke, I would like to see MS add more value to the service. Make it like PlayStation Plus or something similar, though some people do find value in XBL, why? I don't know, but they do.

Though that being said, I don't see how anyone can honestly justify the XBL fee, at least not anymore.

#21 Posted by Trinitarian (1315 posts) -

Its not a joke, its outright robbery. When compared to the "rewards" you get from PSN+

#22 Posted by _SWAG_ (2631 posts) -
.i doubt xbl will survive till next gen. psnplus is the best and we get free games every day free lol. m$ can suck a big one
#23 Posted by mems_1224 (47843 posts) -
yea, lets complain about free things they don't have to give us!!!
#24 Posted by TheEroica (14161 posts) -
I hate free shiit too... 20 points isnt very much, but I never understood the mentality of biitching about getting something just for opening your eyes in the morning. People were doing this after the psn outage and I thought it was lame too... How about ms gives everyone $10 every birthday x 40+million gold members = bankruptcy in one year... dont be stupid system wars. Its not becoming of you.

I don't think most XBL users find value in the service itself, but because it's the best option they choose to buy it. Me? I think it's a rip-off, but if I want to play Halo 4 online it's not an option to opt out.

i lol'ed at the "Use it towards anything you wish" part:lol:

WTF can you buy with that!

#27 Posted by Killzonage (408 posts) -
LOL @ the people who are trying to justify. 50 dollars a year=Play online xbl. Or 50 dollars a year for a service that actually rewards you with free games and discounts on DLC and other games every month.

Not a damn thing. They could of at least given him 80 ms points, at least you can buy like a gamerpic or an avatar hat with that.

They don't have to give me anything! More incentive to NEVER buy the next xbox! No games to buy and an awful service!

I don't mind if people buy it, they are free to do so and I have no right to tell them otherwise. If they personally find value in the service then that's all good, but I just don't understand why and I don't see how someone could honestly justify the XBL fee. I hear so many different things, in the end I don't think anyone really can.

Some people pay it because 360 is their only system, some do it because they are big Halo fans (you), others play it to stay connected with friends or they simply prefer the service. Each person has their own individual reason for paying the fee.

But when it comes to trying to justify it, I don't see how anyone honestly can.

its also the best online service on consoles this gen. just because sony took their head out of their ass the last 2 years doesn't negate the entire gen.

Were you like me? When you first got the message from MS did you think you were about to get a console? It's not a total loss, at least it's a cool looking helmet, and just think of all the new insults and slurs you've picked up over those 10 years. Totally worth it. :P

nah, i knew the amount of people actually getting a console was low, put some ms points or a free xbla game would of been nice. I thought a new console was a bad choice as a gift anyway, seeing as the person chosen would already own the console.

i has 420 ms points of this reward system.. make the count about how long have i spend doing the feedback questions.
#42 Posted by dxmcat (1201 posts) -

Yea, if I received that message, I would cancel my XBL immediately. What an insult to being a paying subscriber.

I'm just going to save you and myself some time and forget about this discussion, this arguement has been discussed far too many times by far too many people.

I'll say: Free > $60 for the same P2P servers

You'll say: Party Chat

I'll say: Still not worth $60 a year.

You'll say: haha PSN hacked!

I'll say: XBL has been hacked before too

And this will go just keep going in circles...like the rest of SW.

There is no justifying paying for the service, but sadly it works for MS, and I doubt they'll be stopping anytime soon.

L See this is what happens with PSN+, kids grow up to be spoiled self-entitled rotten brats. XBL builds character and humility, and is thus far superior.

You're forgetting the part where Sony takes all that stuff away from you as soon as you cancel the subscription. So in reality, you don't own any of it.

MS takes away your online play when your subscription ends...but that's okay right? I don't get to keep watching movies off Netflix when my subscription ends, why should I expect anything different with PS+?

PS+ is a great deal, it's not for everyone, but it is a great service.

Pretty sure you don't lose you downloaded PSN+ games when your superscription runs out, although I don't have a ps3 so I'm not sure.

The games you download for free you no longer can play until you renew your subscription. Everything else you keep, games you bought with PS+ discounts, avatars, themes, betas, and I believe DLC you get for free all stay without renewing your subscription.
