Why are people stupid? Xbox live is weak sauce

 I've only been on here a few times and read a lot of random threads most on xbox live cost and reason why is should be free and all that. I just wanna say why would anyone defend xbox  for charging for xbox live unless you work for them somehow. You pay $60 for a game that was made with multiplayer which is in the price tag, you pay for internet which provides you with well internet, you pay for Netflix to watch movies. Why pay someone else for nothing, are you dumb? if we all protested/ stopped paying for it a long time ago it would have went away like on Xbox live Pc games, but instead because of a few people defending this for some reason we got stuck with it. I don't want any crappy free games each month if I wanted a game I coulda used that 60 a year to buy it. I just don't understand how you can charge to unlock something that comes with a paid game. I know its a little late and nothing is going to change, funny thing is because of the people paying for/defending this were all now stuck with a growing fad of paying for nothing, the new systems are gonna both have it, Microsoft is got other plans on how to spa your money with the preowned game fees now too I wonder how many are gonna defend that too LMao. Out of all of this I just wish people in general were a bit smarter about what to defend and what not to. I know i'm never buying another xbox product after this. Juat wanna say this aswell if you've paid 60 a month since it came out youd have spent $480 to play games that are free on Pc and every other system. I was in that numser as well until I got alittle older and realized your money= your time and if you wanna give your time away for free do it by helping people in need like community centers not working hard at a job to pay a multibillion dollar company that doesn't need your money and are just taking it because they can. You can all say its worth it, think about why? why is it worth it what do you get that you don't anywhere else? Nothing. thanks for your time sorry if it was a rant im just tired of people getting ripped off. We are all smarter than this.

Having a paid subscription service gives microsoft the power to ban those that don`t stick to the rules,its worth the $60 a year for that alone.

I don`t buy gold as its of no value to me,but for those that choose to its definitely worth about the price of burger or a pint of beer once a month.

I also have a ps3 so have no loyalty to microsoft at all.

If I wanted to get ripped off, I'd spend hundreds of dollars on a high-end gaming console with absolutely no structured online community, with no incentivized plan to develop unique and intuitive GUI's for the apps I use, no community involvement in the game development scene, no dedicated matchmaking system to help get me gaming with people of my own caliber, and no system in place to protect my billing information.

But as I'm not a fan of getting ripped off, I prefer the paid service that provides all that.  I put more than $60 a year into charities and community services.  It's really just a trifle amount to spend on myself and ensure that I've got the bottled water of online gaming.  Not to knock the other guys, but if you're fine with tap water, indulge yourself.

I dont think a lot of people realize that servers are run by the games developer not Microsoft, example rock star had problems with GTA 5s online at launch with is through rock star servers and has nothing to do with the price of live. And for an online community where is there not one now a days that doesn't have one everything out there has one. Only involvement they have in game dexolpmentis how much dlc is gonna cost and to make sure it can only be played with the charge xbox provides? Show me how they help anything lol

BTW Microsoft is getting paid by all those advertisements on your dashboard so why charge if your already getting paid every time my system is turned on .....

I never mentioned online game servers for that very reason.  What Xbox LIVE provides is matchmaking service to get you into servers full of people closer to your skill level.  From there, the servers are handled by a hosting player or by the game developers' servers, as you mentioned.  The online community on other consoles is nothing like Xbox LIVE's.  From experience, I've found LIVE to be a much better online environment, like a gated community.  I don't mind paying extra for that.

Why do they have ads when you pay for Gold?  Because you pay for Gold.  You have money.  People with money are more likely to buy things than people without money, right?  Why wouldn't any business capitalize on that?  Cable TV is a paid service, and their channels have commercial breaks.  That's par for the course, really.

Shhh they're listening.  They don't want to know that we are figuring them out.  Try to act normal before it's too late.  I've already said too much.  *runs*

Theres no good reason to defend  that you have to pay for online gaming.

I think in a few years we dont need any xboxes anymore. Then every smart Tv will have the possibility to download games...

Then we all have just ONE Machine to watch TV, play Games, check the INternet and make your Girlfriend happy.

No Microsoft needed then...

I find it funny that this guy was a silver when he made this thread about xbox live being a waste of money,now he`s gold????

Nuh-uh.  If the online community isn't set up like Xbox LIVE, GameTV isn't getting my business.  I pay for Gold for a reason.  Because it is set apart from the rest.  If Xbox Gold were free, all sorts of nonsense would come flooding into the LIVE community.  Couldn't stand if that happened.

[/quote]His profile: "Online playing GTA V - Online Survival".  I guess it's only a rip off, and a waste of money until you actually want to utilise it.
