Damnit!

Time to stock up on Xbox live 12 months while they're cheap. You can get them for 40 bucks at either Amazon or via a Xbox.com promotional offer.

And yet again, the usual suspects are out in full force defending and actually praising the price jump on the Xbox forums. I swear, there's nothing that irritates me more than little corporation bodyguards.

Yup
True, but would you rather pay 40 bucks now, or 60 bucks a year later? Either way, Microsoft is still going to get your money regardless if you spend it now or later. I can buy two years worth of gold now and spend 80 bucks, or I can buy them as they expire and spend 120 bucks in 2 years. Of course that is unless you switch over to the PS3 (or find cheaper deals), you'll be giving more to Microsoft in the long run than the short run.

So basically, it all boils down to would you rather spend more in the short run and save in the long run, or spend less in the short run but spend more in the long run.

Personally, while I think this price increase is great for Microsoft in the short run, they might suffer in the long run if they don't aggressively add new features to XBL that the PSN doesn't have.

I wish that there was an option that doesn't include the Facebook, Netflix, Twitter, last.fm, etc. for a lower deal. Maybe around the $40 price for 12 months. I mean really, who really uses these things on their 360.

I swear it's like fraking zombies on those forums. For example:

"You've made alot of great points Superman, I really think it's great that you've made such intelligent constructive points throughout the entire thread, just a shame some people won't listen. It's good to see at least a few people sticking by their consoles though. Xbox Live is great =]"

Sticking by their consoles? Are these people sane?

You've got to hand it to that Superman guy, his fanboyish dedication to MS is impressive. Nearly 50 pages and I doubt there's many of those pages where he hasn't defended every decision MS has made or will make. Shocked
