You get what you pay for. I don't see how it's a scam. You play for lagfree servers, patches, and tournaments.


See here's my logic, say, you buy a PC game, you pay for the game, you need a PC so you practically paid for that too, and you pay internet provider for online connection, now do you PAY for playing multiplayer? NO.
 
That's why it's a scam. You pay for the console, the game, and internet connection, why shouldn't it be any different to PC games?

Since $5 a month is sooooo much

If you played on xbox live on the 360 then you would see why it's worth the $5....

LMFAO, it lags just as much as ps2, so lag free is just a myth, since people think paying is perfection.
Why pay for patches when sony offers free patches on ps3/psp?


You must have a terrible connection...

Anyways live is definitly worth the $5 a month. It isn't a scam.


I guess 3 different cable ISP all must suck. You act like I'm running on 128 dsl or w/e it's called.

Having the option to play on-line with a video-game console should be viewed as strictly as a nice bonus. It should not be the main reason why someone would, or would not buy a video-game console. Doing so is plain dumb.

$5 a month aint bad, considering with that they're constantly patching and upgrading.
cmon, ya pay $5 a month for all you wanna play, while others shell out $15 a month to play ONE game *cough*WoW*cough*.

If you ever get lagg on XBL.. It's your connection. If you connect to XBL on a 56k connect you're gonna get lag. Common Sense tells you that.

And the patches happen SLOWLY for ps3 and psp. With XBL you see 3-5 being released per month.

But I can understand where they're comming from. 5 dollars per month is like one less big mac value meal for them.

Why are you paying for Live?

Guaranteed online play for almost every game, ability to text, voice, and video chat with friends, ONE name for all the games, and a unified buddy and block list. What other consoles do that for evey game?
