    You know what they say about Facebook profiles being more exciting then a person's real life!

    (Which is kinda sad since my profile is virtually blank).

    Considering they did the exact same thing on 360, this isn't surprising...

    How long before they lock the ability to play games behind a paywall?

    The question I want to know, is that on top of a Gold subscription?

    Don't you buy games to play them?

    So it sounds like everything except live TV feed from your aerial and playing single-player needs extra payments. What's the point of even buying this thing? :/

    Already takes the pee that they are charging to provide services like Netflix that already require a subscription. Wonder if they will pull a Win 8 and charge extra for DVD playback too.* I am steering clear of this wallet triple-dipper.



    *I know that this was to cover the cost of DVD licencing but Win 8 price has since gone up and XBox users won't be able to circumvent it with VLC.

    From looking at it, (hopefully) these are extra services that are going to be added on to the Gold Membership at no additional cost.

    I have not heard any plans for the Gold Membership going up in price and if you already have Gold this is just more bang for your buck.

    Erecting a paywall purely to make people pay to remove it*, is a [censored] move.

    *as opposed to charging for something that actually costs you money to provide.

    Providing you actually WANT these things.

    It's like the free games on PS+. If you don't like/want the games it isn't a bonus to you.

    No extra charge from what I can see, just extras, as it says above.

    There's a similar post here, with a shiny shiny image which gives a visual representation of it. Xbox360Achievements.org

    Recording/streaming (in max 720p) and F2P are behind the MS gold paywall.

    Recording/streaming and F2P isn't behind PSN+ paywall.

    Not really Free to Play if you have to pay for Gold, is it?

    Talking of F2P, I hear PS4 owners will be able to play Planetside 2. Unfortunately, no cross-platform functionality as apparently it's too had to patch both platforms at the sametime.

    Exactly. It's Microsoft's version of free, where you have to pay for it.
