Well, I finished the story and all that sh*t, I take a look at the tabs that require online access and they tell me that I don't have the correct permissions to access them. I take a look at the internet and I deduced that I need Xbox LIVE Gold. Anyways, since I live in Israel sh*t is overpriced. I bought GTA V for 400 ILS (Which should be like 200 ILS), but it was well worth it. BUT after I see that to play the glorious online mode I need to spend another f*cking 211 ILS or something around that price.

 

TL;DR Version

 

I bought GTA V for 400 ILS (Yes, I live in Israel) which should have costed like 200 ILS, THEN I find out that I need Xbox LIVE Gold membership to play the online mode which is another 200 ILS.

 

I think that Xbox should allow you to play online games if you are a former Gold member.

 

This is an outrage, to my opinion. What do you think?

He already has the Xbox 360 - no point buying a new one, that won't solve anything.

 

The whole point of Xbox Live Gold is that you can play online with it - far better gaming experience. It's always been like this for all games. Tell me a game you could play online with Silver?

Are you complaining that you can't use Xbox Live because you can't pay for it? So you think that Microsoft should allow you to play if you WERE a member?

Yes way better by far.   PS3 sucks they have the nerve  to not even make you pay them more money every month and they even let you download demos for free.  They also have a bluray player, like who would want one of those in this day and age.....

have had both systems and the lack of a difference(for me) online made me decide to stick with the free service because i always preferred playstation  seeing as how i grew up with it. Also to the guy who posted that it is cheaper to buy a membership, its only cheaper right now; console with no charge is cheaper in the long run...

agreed, you're clearly not much of a debater. the only thing I wish is that one day we have cross platform online so everyone can play together and stop arguing about who's console it better; honestly there's gripes about each one...

cross platform multiplayer would be cool, but then we'd hear about how so and so is "pro" because controller x is better than controller y, we'll honestly never hear the end of it. There's always something.

 

Why can't we just play games to play games, instead of validating self worth based on which console you've purchased?

 

On topic, I have both consoles, and I have to say that personally I find the quality of xboxlive and playing online better than on the playstation network. Paying for it isn't that big of a deal, and if you can't afford it, I think there should be bigger priorities in your life.

LOL so just because you were a member in the past means you should have the same privileges as people who still pay?

I bought gold, heck even more memory just to play GTA 5. So don't complain. I'm not even that well off.

Not when the consoles will be replaced within a year, no.

There is such thing as cross platform gaming. Oh wait not for sh*tbox360 because they can't handle it. Ps3 has plenty of games that you can play cross platform. I play ffxiv with my pc friends all the time. same with Dust 514/eve and others.

Just buy a xbox live gold card online.

There's a lot of online stores that sell them for damn near half of what MS is selling them for, and a lot of the stores will just email you the redeem code so you wont have to wait OR pay for shipping :)

Dude get your facts straight Xbox can handle cross platform playing but MS refuses to do it...

Xb1 won't support Cross platforms either do you really think its because it can't handle it? It's just against Xbox Policy and they won't budge.

It's one think to hate a console and that's cool but don't be making straight up lies....it has nothing to do with hardware or networking not handling it.

Xbox PS3 and PC could all play together but the companies won't allow it, except PC and PS

You should know as an XBOX gamer you need Gold to play online. I don't agree with it but that shouldn't be news.

 

You shouldn't however need a paid account to upload photos to snapmatic and check stat rankings. If I could go back I would've got a PS3 instead.

Well, basically I got the game AND the console itself. If you think of it, it wouldn't really make sense paying FURTHER.

 

It's like getting a pirated game, you can play SP and all, but not MP.

FANBOY sh*t HURRRRRRRRRRRR

 

Get a pc/360/Wii/Ps3 so you can sit back and snicker while you decide which fantastic gaming platform you're going to play next.

 

 

If your parents will buy you that many.
