One of the most annoying things about the xbox is the money us xbox users pay so that we can play online and many of us have been hoping that it will become free so i was thinking could they not make more money through making it free? I think this for a few reasons. 1. Many people buy the ps3 instead of the xbox because of having to pay to play online so if they made it free i would predict that they would sell alot more xbox consoles. 2. Due to the selling of more game consoles more people would be buying games which would bring in more money from them. 3. With more people on XBL it is likely that more people will be buying mricrosoft points to spend in the marketplace and so they would make more money from this. 4. With free live people would no longer be making new accounts in order to get a month of playing for free and so the cost of maintaining these accounts would be reduced. In conclusion i would like to say that i do not know how much more money would be made but i suspect it would be alot more than the money they currently get which would benefit both them and it would benefit us in 2 ways. We dont have to pay for live and XBL would be improved making both xbox customers and microsoft happy, What do you think???
