Non-existent on PS4 whether you want it for free or are willing to pay.

MS puts everything they can behind their paywall.

Indeed, Ms really only cares about their bottom line and not gamers.

I find it hard to get mad about a paywall I am going to pay for anyway. And who here has a legit reason to care if PS4 services like Netflix aren't behind a paywall if you are paying Sony for online play anyway? Somebody who doesn't play games, that's who. (i.e. not anybody on this forum.)

Looking at th a;lunch line ups, I wouldn't agree with that. Game wise not even in to next year would I agree with that, lol. If you game on Xbox you need Live, period. If not go elsewhere. Though I don't see the value in its competition, lol

I think this is Microsoft's revenge for people not wanting always online.

They lock all their features behind a paywall

You also get access to video conference calls with Skype on XBL, a feature that costs 60 dollars on all other platforms including PC.

Lame.... But gamers will vote for how much they agree or disagree with this using their hard earned cash... If people buy up x1's like hotcakes then we're arguing about a non issue.

MS owns Skype. They can do what they want with it.

If you are already paying for XBL on the XBox 360, you're already good to go. Which means there's already millions who will have access to Skype as soon as they get an XB1.
