It's £40 for a year... which works out as... *calculates* £3.33 per month. How anybody can complain about that is beyond me...

It's the whole point of actually paying that £40 for a years worth of playing when you're already paying £10-20 a month for perfectly good internet which you probably use a lot more often than the Xbox.

I still cant justify forking out £40 for a year of something you probably wont play much. (in my case, anyway. pc > consoles)

My problem with it is that I don't see why I should pay for something most companies offer for free.

But then, I don't have an xbox 360 so meh.

I don't like the idea of paying for something that has always been free before. ~tima The only advantage I can see is when developers/publishers go poof the games can still be played online if Microsoft is maintaining the servers. ~tima

The money is going towards more than just server maintenance. The amount of other content offered on Live (TV shows, videos, demos, arcade games, etc.) is more than you'd get just playing a game in multiplayer.

I still cant justify forking out £40 for a year of something you probably wont play much. (in my case, anyway. pc > consoles)

There's plenty of people that do play often, though.

And if I recall correctly, a silver membership still allows for free multiplayer gaming on the weekends?
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

All of which I have no use for nor do I want. I just want to play my games - nothing more, nothing less. ~tima Perhaps they should offer a tiered service, one with just playing games online and one with the other crap? ~tima

Of course not, because that permits you to be stubborn.  :P

You can get all that shit on the internet anyway.

A night out costs about 10 pounds...

it's great value ;o
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

You should be, damnit. We need a all-forum Gears tourney or something.

I believe so. I remember debating whether or not I would want to just play on the weekends or pay for all 12 months. Hm.
