Well look at that, Microsoft bragging about upgrading their service and now we get this delightful little nugget, expelled directly from Major Nelson's colon. Yep, they're raising the price of a gold Live subscription by 10 bucks a year.
Seriously guys, you couldn't even justify the original fee and now you want MORE? Gotta love this quote from the article:
Since launching Xbox LIVE in 2002 we have continually added more content and entertainment experiences for our members, while keeping the price the same. We’re confident that when the new pricing takes effect, an Xbox LIVE Gold membership will continue to offer the best value in the industry.
Best value? You mean how your two other competitors offer online play for fucking FREE? Or maybe we're paying for those retarded videos on the dashboard you guys always put up to advertise your newest contest or pay DLC. Either way this is about as good a value as buying an extra value meal, but instead of a hamburger it's shit and instead of fries it's more shit!!
Although if I am reading the site correctly, here in Canada it's just the 1 month subscription going up. I can guarantee though that if the other subscriptions in the USA are increasing, ours soon will. At this point we really need the PS3, or god forbid the Wii to step up and with some superior online play and kick them right in their money grubbing balls.
