I know this is very late, it's been like, what? A year since Microsoft bumped up the 12 month price of Xbox Live from $50 to $60. Perhaps this isn't the right forum to go to, but I have to ask, what made them spike the price up? It's not justifiable. I know to alot of you, $60 ain't nothing, but we have to look at the ideal that each cents, each dollar is being used to ensure our satisfaction, to be honest, I'm still kindoff pissed they spiked the price. Microsoft has [u]no[/u] no reason to spike up the price, none. [b]What? Is it to make up the costs of the servers?[/b] Hmmmm, then why the hell are there adds as soon as I'm on my home screen? Or how about those Master Chief toys and Master Chief Booty-Sweat Flavored Doritos? To me, those things are also bringing in the bacon for Microsoft. Timed exclusive DLC is also bringing in cash for Microsoft Better yet, let's talk about how Indie developers and smaller developers are screwed when it comes to patches because [u]Microsoft charges $40,000 PER patch[/u]. [b]"How dare you complain! Not only do you pay just to play games but to use apps!!!"[/b] Well correct me if I'm wrong, Didn't MS get rid of some apps, such as twitter and facebook? So am I paying the extra 10 dollars for apps I do not use? Seriously Hulu? The step brother of Netflix? Almost any app is pointless because I can just whip out my Macbook Pro and do just the same [u]minus the terrible interface that Xbox has[/u]. PLEASE tell me it's not going to Internet Explorer 10, [i][b][u]no one likes[/u][/b][/i] Internet Explorer, who would be use IE on their Xbox while the power of the internet is in your phone and probably a 100 times faster to access then loading up your xbox/quitting a game, going to the menu and loading IE10 then googling a walkthrough of a game. I guess what I'm trying to say is, why on earth did MS decide to raise the price of a year's worth of Xbox? The quality of the User Interface has decreased, the quality of presentation has flatlined, the complete package has decreased in value. TL;DR In no way does MS deserved the increase of Xbox Live price. [Edited on 01.03.2013 3:46 PM PST]
