    You can get online multiplayer for all games on PC for free so if you want to play Microsoft's games but value not really playing for online multi there's an avenue for you that covers both bases.

    I quit paying for Gold like a year ago. I'd rather just use the PlayStation for console online multi. I only really get single player multiplats or Microsoft games on their console at this point. Hell to be honest I haven't played my Xbox Series X since a week after it came out. It wasn't worth playing for Gold and PSN and since PlayStation is my primary I went with that.

    Same I can really see people being pushed in going towards Sony now for Online gaming from a Console point and PC for gamepass.

    Also people saying Sony will hike. You already know Sony is going to play this to there advantage especially since Microsoft bought Bethesda. They going to be petty as shyt and offer a playstation plus discount or some shyt before they hike prices up.

    The whole but Sony gonna do it too now ain't gonna work. Remember the DRM fiasco from 2013. Sony was out in front saying they'd never do it even though Xbox was going to and it never happened on playstation. :mjgrin:

    Microsoft had the potential to score a touchdown with Sony having a 5pt lead but they still found away to fumble the ball.

    No excuse for this whatsoever. I use Gold to upgrade my Gamespass sub, if this goes up, I’m moving my multiplayer to PS5, no doubt

    Xbox Live Gold was $50/year from its inception to about a few years ago, when it went to $60.

    Second, your example of other services doubling is poor because those were incremental increases over the years, not doubling the price, especially when you are adding nothing to justify the price increase.

    Sony has nothing to do with this so I don’t know why you are trying to deflect.

    There is little justification of why Microsoft would double the price for Gold.

    I think this hurts them most with the casuals - the cats who just play shyt like COD, Fifa, NBA 2k. Which let's be reality is most gamers. These people don't give a fukk about about a gamepass. None of the shyt they play is on Gamepass. They ain't trying to play wacky little indie titles and mid open world games.

    That’s fukkED up. Especially for nikkas who don’t play a bunch of different games and only play shyt like 2K or COD. They gotta spend all that extra just to play they shyt online. Crazy.

    1st my off my 1st post was directed at Sony Stan's, if that's not you don't worry about it.

    2nd

    A price doubling is a price doubling doesn't matter if it's slowly over a couple years or all at once out the blue one is just more digestible... Especially if that's what I'll be consistently paying in the long run.


    I'll use nextflix as an example of a company that price has literally doubled and they took features away and put them behind higher paywalls.

    You either paid the same price for the same thing or less.... Unless you upgraded to the next tier.

    Crunchyroll did this, hulu and Spotify...


    And for the record I'm not for this, it's whack. But it's not something brand new with sub services, and people who were buying it 12 months subs good r xbl to save money are getting screwed

    PS Now is dope all they would have to do is revamp it. Plus PS5 has a thing called PS Plus Collection where they give u a bunch of games for free. U get the games of the month. Plus EA Play is on PlayStation as well. They can expand on any of these options.
