i hate to do this, but enough is enough. xbox, microsoft lies about the xbox live gold service. xbox live gold services was meant for, to play games online with friends, purchase things off of xbox live market place watch movies and etc.but was specificly mad for the online multiplayer modes. but now there going a little to far by ripping people off on the gold membership.
everybody pays for the xbox live gold membership to play online multiplayer with friends or some one random. but now microsoft wants to go around and find loop holes on making more money. well just sometime last year. they started making games with online passes. you must have to purchase a game brand new to get a online pass for that game free.or buy a game usedyou will not be able to play online at all unless you pay for the online pass. again and again per each game.
so now just about every game they come out with is starting to have it. there not forgetting that the xbox live gold membership is what you need to play online multiplayer. there just not sticking to the man of there words and ignoring it, and ripping off people.
they might blame somebody else as the game developers or ea. but they shouldnt be the 1 to blame, when xbox live gold was made to play online multiplayer modes. there just stiffing us making us pay double, but its not really double if you got to pay for the online pass for each game,if you dont buy it new. IF YOU REALLY THINK ABOUT THIS, ITS A HUGE SCAM AN RIPPOFF.
