XBox Live Games Should Remain Free with XBox Live Subscription.

With the recent news release that Phantasy Star Online will require an additional 8.95 to play it online, and the XBox Live starter kit JUST to be able to play it, even offline, I am starting a Petition to stand up against Sega and Microsoft.

Microsoft has promised us, with the purchase of an Xbox Live Starter Kit and the XBox Live service, we would be able to play all XBox Live enabled games for free. (They even gloated about this, saying it was the better service because Sony leaves it up to the software developers to charge a fee for their online games).

I for one will not be purchasing this game. Even people who do not have High Speed Internet will be forced to purchase, along with the price of the game), an XBox Live starter kit, just to play it offline. So that means, you will have to buy a kit, for 49.99, and the game, for 39.99 just to play it offline. THEN, if you want to play it online, it will cost you a subscription fee for XBox Live (when your first year runs out), and then an 8.95 fee, every month.

Segas excuse for this fee for the Sega Dreamcast was to maintain the server load on for the game, which was a little suspicious, but was plausable. Now their excuse is to release more content for the game, which is appauling. A lot of companies have the intent of releasing new content for games free of charge.

So in other words:

We ARE paying for new downloadable content. We have to pay for the new content that comes out. Not only that, but the content will probably not come out every month, so we are paying for a month of NO new content. The game itself only costs 39.99, so after 5 months, we have paid for yet another PSO game, but I doubt the newly released content will equal the base game that is released on the Xbox disk.

This is rediculas, and stupid. Sega has made all of their money back and then some on this game since it's released on the DC. THERE IS NO NEED TO CHARGE MORE.

    yearly fee of less than 50 dollars would be more acceptable
  • 30 December 2015984. Walter P
    It is that I don't want to pay the fee, it is just that it is unfair that we should have to pay the same price as the the GC version and our XBL accounts. A fee of 4.99 or 3.99 would be more reasonable.
