More On: Xbox 360 Wii PLAYSTATION 3
There are two systems for online gameplay that's currently out there now. The PC, Wii, and PlayStation 3 offer free online gaming with buddies. Purchase the machine and you get to put the console online to play with your friends without any extra costs. The Xbox has always been different charging $50 for the ability to let you play a 360 game online. You do get one of the best online systems though with the Xbox 360 and perhaps that extra $50 a year is worth it to you for the way it's setup. With two of the three major consoles offering free online gaming, do you think Microsoft should still be charging $50 a year? If so, why?
