Yes, just like most Xbox titles.

 

It's quite cheap per month, I don't even notice it, probably paid for 6 months where I didn't even use the service just because I forgot.

You are so adorable.. I wanna adopt you as my child... a paid subscription to XBL is needed for the following things if memory serves me right....

 

Any subscription based service aka Netflix, Hulu Plus

 

Achievements

 

To play FREE demos....

And to play online....

 

Thats why I said FU M$ and bought a PS3 and will be getting a PS4 which doesn't require money to access F2P games or subscription services or even the recording feature.

Whilst I agree with you i still feel that for the quality of items you get on PS+ compared to the games for gold on Xbox that the subscription can justify the means

Pretty much this.

Option A: Free, not at many features
Option B: Small fee, better features

I'd say there's no real winner there.

The real question is what happens if you happen to have Xbox Live Bronze... 

Prolly get Auto-Banned.

Actually they've given out some pretty decent games. Happy Wars, Rainbow 6 Vegas, M:tG, Might & Magic, Crackdown, All-Star Poker, etc.

And 2 new free ones every month. So, yeah, not just Magic the Gathering games.

Us xbox players pay to play because we feel that were paying for a good service and its worth it, period. No reason to compare dick sizes. Its all preference.

Agreed 100% (upping the gold price ten bucks was a dick move though)

No, it's like not being connected to the Internet, you don't get access to online Multiplayer at all.

 

Also, regarding the content of PSN and Live, I feel PSN has more stuff relevant to my needs, I also don't feel like paying for both Netflix and Xbox Live to be able to watch Netflix. Also, I got Red Dead Redemption with Undead for free on PSN+ and that's what kept me subscribed to that feature even if I don't have to.

I think xbox live were doing a free weekend. It'll end today, then you will be forced to pay like the rest of us. Which is fair, why should you get to play for free, on servers we paying customers fund?

Gold isn't required for achievements or to download and play free demos.  You do need it for Netflix/Hulu and MP.

 

Also, you can buy and download DLC without having a gold subscrip (only mentioning that because I've seen comments from some people in the past who don't realize that)...

^ I love Ascend:Hand of Kul more than uncharted(boring series imo)

Also you PS+ fanboys are gonna have a shock when you get a ps4. Ps4 needs ps+ to play mp, to play Netflix, to play YouTube... Sounds like you guys are screwed next gen
