that's a tough call, but it still isn't worth it. It should be free.


Why should it be free? Are the songs on Itunes free? Don't you have to pay for satellite radio as opposed to regular radio? Isn't that worth it?

It's $4 a month. I could see if it was like $10, but for $4 you really can't complain. You could go free, but looks whta that gives us: games that use different buddy lists, un-unified online or clunky number systems


Microsoft has enough success dude. Their system is ensured... if they made Live free they could really dominate.


For all they give you, it's definetly worth the price. They could dominate, but so could Sony if they lowered the PS3 price. Looks like it isn't going to happen, though


I know none of it's going to happen. But the 360 basically sells itself with a big "Halo 3" poster. Free online would be like the icing on the cake.


Why would you expect the online to be free?

Because every other online game is free. PC games (Besides MMORPGS) are free. PS3 online is free. Wii online is free. People will say the 360 has a better layout, but that doesn't really matter. All I wanna do is actually play the games with other people, and I can do that for free on my PS3. It's nice.

Does the PS3:
  • Have a universal friends list?
  • Have the ability to text and chat outside of games?
  • Have the ability to read messages during a game?
  • Come with a mic so everyone can talk?
  • Have a completely unified online?
No. Even if you paid a dollar for each of the above, that's more than what live costs a month. Is it nice? Sure, I guess if you really don't wanna spend that much. But it's nothing like Live at all

Same with world of warcraft 7 million people pay monthly 15 dollars.  Only a handful complain, but they probably never played it, like me

Tyring to set up a game with friends on any other system is nearly impossible. You either have to call them, or text them, or go on AIM... on 360, you click thier name and send a message or an invite to a chat where you just tell them. Or, make the game and just invite them. You can't do that anywhere else
