Paying for Online Console services (rant)
Normally this is not a problem because there is always a deal to be had on these memberships but there doesn't seem to be any deals available right now. Seriously it's ludicrous to think that in this day and age we have to pay to play our games online. I mean Call of Duty has what? A five hour campaign? The main part of the game is the online. Almost every game nowadays has an online service that it's a huge part of the game. You even need live gold inorder to play Free to Play games. How ridiculous is that? Xbox received a lot of backlash and even backpedaled a bit. Originally Netflix, HBO and even the friggin web browser were locked behind a paywall. I don't care about the free games. They only give away those games because they know that 90% of gamers wouldn't pay for Gold if they could play their games online for free. It would maybe make a little bit of sense if we were getting dedicated servers but most of the time gamers are using their own connections to host peer to peer games anyways.
