    They're raising the yearly price of Live to $60. Greedy bastards.

    Thaaaaat sucks.

    I can't see a good justification, they haven't changed the methods of delivery of the service, and it's not like they're having a problem with quantity of subscribers.

    Time to jump boat and buy a PS3!
    Lol.

    No seriously, Cons had the right idea buying a PS3. I wouldn't pay for that......

    They're adding ESPN, Facebook, and Twitter support to Live. I guess that's part of the increase.

    Facebook and Twitter are already accessible through XBox Live... Or are they changing the format?

    That really sucks, but if ESPN 3 is good and free, I wouldn't mind paying the extra 10 bucks a year, but if you have to pay something extra for ESPN 3 (which you probably will) Xbox can go straight to hell. They make so much money now in there damn marketplace that they shouldn't have to raise the price at all, they should at least keep the price the same or lower the price. No wonder Microsoft has a bad reputation.

    If anything they should take some content out. Music Videos? Fuck music videos. Independant games? Fuck those too. I just want the ability to download DLC (map packs, patches, expansions, etc.). Every thing else I can get for free on my computer :D That should bust the price down several dollars without all the useless content and features.

    I'll stick to my PS3 . . . where all of those things are free. All bashing aside, they have no reason to increase the prices. This is how Xbox users get fucked, Microsoft likes to plug that cash hole like no tomorrow.
