Back in my day, we paid MS $60 a year and all we got was online play and the ability to use Netflix and Hulu. And when Live went down, you were LUCKY if they gave you Undertow to compensate your time. You kids and your entitlement, always wanting stuff for free and participation trophies and indie games for $10 or less and broken games to get patches and VR to not make you sick.
Sorry. I agree that raising the price is crappy. It's like cable... nothing gets added, but they feel the need to raise the price every year. But... I did want to rip on Xbox Live Gold cuz they started this whole paying for online thing.
