Why Does Xbox Need To Have Silver/Gold System?

I just want to ask, why does xbox live have to make us pay to play games with friends? im going to be honest here, im 13, and im not spoiled, nor am i rich and i cannot stress to you enough how hard it is for me to pay for the 3 month cards every 3 months. i have had 5 Xbox Live accounts, and have been playing xbox for many years, but i cannot continue to pay for something that should be free, and should Have the option to upgrade. Now don't Get me wrong here, i'm not asking for a free membership I am just expressing my opinion as a free being. i just think Microsoft should do a Sony type system on Xbox where you have Playstation Plus, and A Regular, Non-Plus Account. I feel There Should Be Gold And Silver(as There IS), Gold Being The Account with free games, early access to content and other premium things, and silver being the account where you can play games join party's and all that good stuff. What i really don't understand is why others just couldn't comprehend such a system. i have been thinking about this since i was eleven years old, and I feel i Have been spending too much on a service that many of my friends do not even use, and the few that do are considering switching.

Hello ReWiND,

Fist off sorry to see you go. My only suggestion would be not to trade in your 360 but to place it in a safe place and test the waters with Sony. I would almost be willing to bet you will end up dragging that 360 out again in the future. I have had a few friends switch to PSN and they have all sense returned to Xbox. It's great that you voice your opinion. Really take a run with PSN and choose the service that fits your needs best. No one can be mad about someone trying to pick a service that suits them.

Thanks and good luck..

You are going to "rally others?" lol . So you are a 7 year member, buying XBL, and just now you want to go to PS3? It seems like you just posted this here to see who would get mad, because if you do not have a problem that can be solved by other users, you should not have posted here.I'm not going to sit here and preach the Pros of staying with Xbox, you will figure them out when you get the PS3. Sayonara.
