$60 a year is cheap. Hasn't changed since it was created. We get a lot for it. And a few things that PSN doesn't have like online police and a secure network.

5 dollars definitely is not asking much.. i just hate paying it upfront for the year.

then again, cell phone plans cost 50$+ a month already, but no one is complaining now are they?

Let people spend their money anyway they want. If they want to buy a PS3 and play for free, do it. If we want to spend 60$ a year on something that could probably just be free, we can do it. If you want to buy a dress and prance around, I really can't stop you can I?

Paying for multiplayer si quite unfair. I mean you rich guys wont understand because $60 isn't much for you. But for us guys who made the choice of buying a 360 because of exclusive games for it and want to play multiplayer but don't have the money, it's quite unfair. Yeah it's kind of our mistake for buying a 360 but why can't microsoft make live multiplayer free. I mean they make mllions or even billions alone from the software and other stuff they sell, even from the advertisements on our live dashboard. We also lose multiplayer majority because of the fees.

actually i sold my xbox 360 and bought a ps3 now i miss my xbox but still like my ps3 except i wish halo and Gears 3 at least were on it, lol i sold it thinking ps3 would be better, it was fun but got dull after a month because of the hacks and feel lonely with no one to talk to on ps3, not alot of people talk on ps3 as much as xbox, i miss halo and other games that i got rid of, i want to buy a 360 again but my dad says its a stupid move because i just sold my xbox in the first place,

 

anyways i think the fee is fair , with it at least we dont get hacked easily and get alot more stuff, i cant stand ps3 move on my ps3 lol, i wish i had my xbox and i would have bought a kinect by now

What exactly is that $5 a month you're so eager to spend getting you? It's a serious question, take a good hard look at it. No difference in quality, fewer online features and activities. What are you paying for?

Better security? Better community? Play a few exclusives online? No. No. Guess so. We don't get more "stuff" by the way,  we get less "stuff". Less often.

It's not a huge expense, and to play with friends who don't have a PS3, it's easy to brush aside. Beyond that, it's becoming more and more clear to me (personal opinion alert) that Xbox Live is a paid service with "free service" quality.
