I've decided to get this game on ps3, even though I would rather get it for xbox. I have been an avid supporter of your console since 2007, and the original xbox before it. But if you are going to gouge me for a gold subscription to get content which should be included for free (such as seeing bloodstains, messages, and players ghosts) you can get stuffed. I don't mind if you included these things with a free account but required gold to join parties and play co-op online with friends; that is what gold is all about. But instead you have chosen the route that makes the game basically worthless. Why should I have to pay extra to receive these things when I can get them for FREE on PS3? This game is about seeing bloodstains, messages and ghosts. They are ESSENTIAL to the game experience. And this is the reason I will be getting it on PS3.
