New Messaging System

Why Do We Need Gold To Send Messages? It Was Better When It Was Free. Am I Right? Who Ever Changed It To Needing Gold Please Change It Back. I Am Starting To Think Playstation Is Getting Better Since You Do Not Need To Pay For Online Play And Messaging. Only For Add Ons And Full Games.

I seem to remember being able to send messages before I got GOLD, it wasn't all that long ago (maybe six months).  I remember being able to transmit and receive both voice and text messages with no problems...:-)

If you're not playing online why is there a need to send messages via Xbox Live? Yes it does suck you can't anymore, but I personally don't see the need if you're not playing MP online.

Because you don't need to play mp to send just a simple message, it dosen't make any sense why they restrict sending messages via the website but you could do it on console with no problems.

I clearly remember when I first got my XBOX (November 2010), I tried out my headset, to see if it worked, with my neighbor and we sent messages back and forth.  This was months before I got a GOLD membership.  If they're restricting communications to members only after allowing non-members to do so, it's a familiar business practice I've seen before.  When we first got bank cards in the mid 90's, we had unlimited use of them for years, once we got used to the convenience, we had to start paying for it.  Yeah, I know, bastards right...:-)
