Xbox Live is $50 for the whole year. I don't play online, but surely, if you're buying games all year, $50 for a year is NOT gonna kill you, right? I'd kill for that kind of subscription to a gym, forget Xbox Live.
And some companies, like THQ and EA, are going the "Buy new if you wanna play online free" route. If you buy used, you're out of luck. I don't buy used nor do I play online so this doesn't really affect me right now, but in time, the companies will use this as a springboard for something far more greedy. I can only imagine what will happen in the future, like "CAN ONLY PLAY IF ONLINE, EVEN FOR SINGLE PLAYER GAMES!" Fuck that.
