    Well that seems kinda like a interesting idea.

    And hey I'm sure Microsoft won't mind the $100 a year from everyone who subscribes to this...
    I can't stand paying for online anymore, if xbox live isn't free next gen, then Sony will get my money.
     
  4. The free service from PS3 sucks... reason 1 they will be adding a subscription model
