Another thread sparked this question in my head and rather than force it to go off-topic I thought I would ask here.
If Microsoft suddenly decided to make online play available to Silver members, just as they do on GFWL, would you still pay for a Gold subscription?
The Gold sub would still offer exclusive access to the all the features, apps and Party Chat. The only thing being removed would be online play.
Would a Gold subscription retain its value for money if online play was no longer exclusive to that membership level?
Now I confess that I'd be coming down on the NO side of the equation, though it's a tough one as I love Party Chat.
