Major Nelson revealed all, what a ripoff

if you pay monthly it comes to £72 a year in the UK, still free for PSN to play the GAMES YOU BUY for free, totally free.

I guess they are getting ready to slaughter all the Halo Reach fans.

I guess MS dont care about inflation rates, enough gamers have to backbone that they will pay , an easily manipulated bunch.

Thats £72 per year in the UK when the Arcade costs under £100. I hope their greed bites them in the ass and sends Major Nelson the redundancy cheque.

£72, what morons pay that, 12 months is like £28

as above, any fool that pays monthly or for that matter buys directly from microsoft for their full year deserves to be shafted.

Its sad but some people dont pay a full year and do pay monthly. Also a lot of households have kids and they will buy their cards from retail at expensive prices.

Do you know anyone that pays for a whole year month by month?

It's only a rip off for the Americans that have to pay $10 extra for 12 months. £1 extra for a month in the UK is not really a big deal, as everyone else has said only a fool would buy a whole years subscription month by month. Plus there are always cheap deals which enable us to get 12 months for very cheap, as sancho1983 already stated you can get it for £28.

Not a big deal - The online community is far too big for this to have a big enough impact for them to regret it.

Oh yeah only N00BS pay monthly buy a year subscription and then forget about it.

Bit like getting road tax just take the pain off one off payment for the year.

why would anyone pay monthly, maybe dole dossers who have to wait for their 50 quid a week but no normal person would pay monthly
#10
not surprised........was just wondering what day the news would come in.
#11
even for 28 quid which most of us pay i still thing dats a rip off too. not everyone wants the features ( facebook, twitter?) just make silver online play enabled without the other features.

Where can you get 12 months for £28?
