Hey, this is just economics, and really, though we don't like it, its for the better. AND this will help with having too many kids online, i think they should raise it so high that only adults can really afford it. I would pay for a better service like that, more exclusivity, because just about everyone and their grandma's have gold memberships.

There is probably some Business Analyst sitting in a dark closet that raised the prices based on the drop in value of the current dollar. It's that or the head CEO needs to buy his 7th sports car of the week packed with showgirls and free drinks bar.

And this is why I never purchased the XBOX live GOLD at MSRP price.
I always buy it at $30 price from a sale somewhere.

Haha, they FAIL indeed. And isn't XBOX got something to do with Microsoft, and isn't Microsoft the richest company ever? And aren't they horribly greedy?

Yeah, they are.

Paying money for mostly P2P online gaming is such a waste. Sure, there's other things you get with your subscription, but nothing I'd ever use. I also have to thank you people for fully embracing the nickle-and-dime marketing practice of paid DLC. Your willingness to buy anything makes me a very sad panda.
