I dont think it should be free. I mean it is better WAY better then Ps3 and Wii. Maybe the price should go down to maybe 35 to 40 a year or something but it really isnt that big of a deal. The 50 a year that we already pay is less then 4 dollars a month.



Considering the large ammount of people using XBL at the moment, it would be a huge boost to Microsoft to drop the price of the Gold membership fee by at least 10 dollars or 20 dollars as this would generate more intrest into the online package to newcomers and please current users.

Sorry for the double posting...
 
But what you ask for is near to impossible as the orginal Xbox Live package and the Xbox Live gold package is one and the same.  And the Xbox is not 8 years old, it was released in 2001, not 1999.

Which again, is impossible.  If you drop the price for the orginal Xbox goers, you will have to drop the price for Gold in the scheme of Business.  Otherwise you'll end up disenfranchising your client base on the newer console.  To be honest you should go and just get a 360, upgrade your Xbox Live account (costs nothing) and get on Gold.  Your account will work flawlessly on both systems (as long as you do not try playing online on both systems at once).  For Rainbow Six 3, Black Arrow, and Halo 2 I perfer to play on my orginal Xbox while playing the new stuff on my 360.  Now if I can only get a wireless bridge for my Ps2 so I can enjoy some SOCOM as it should be.

I crunch down into a state of BF 2142, Dark Crusade, Gears of War, some DQ VII and VIII, Dead Rising, Soul Calibur III and finaly a bit of GRAW or SOCOM depending the mood I'm in during each weekend as my weekdays are totaly shot.  I used to play Rainbow Six Raven Shield but gave up on that due to Vegas.

XBL offers SO much more than every other system does to online. It set the table for other game companies. If I remember correctly, you needed a different name for every PS2 online game (except EA). I have a 12 month+1 month subscription and I think it is definitley worht it.

Yes, for the ps2 but so far you only need one name for the ps3 titles but there is no cross-game communication with people on your buddy list, until you swap games to what they are playing (or they swap to your game).
