Hey, everything sounds better when you divide it by smaller units of time.silverbullet1989 said:but i think i can stretch to £0.67 pence a week for it.
Mr Smith: "Will you buy my useless product for £76.99."
Mr Jones: "no"
Smoth: "I know it sounds like a lot but think about it this way, it will last the rest of your life and assuming you live till your late 80's, and with 365 days per years and 24 hours per...
... so per second you are actually paying a MINUSCULE amount of money and THAT is why you should buy my overpriced product, even though it is crap."
Mr Jones "Can I pay you per week?"
Mr Smith: "No, I want the money up front."
I would actually be happy with paying 0.67 pence per week for XBL but unfortunately that is NOT what is actually happening, you have to buy it in 3 month chunks at the smallest. I wish I could just pay for the odd weekend I want to play it since most of my online gaming will be on PS3 and PC but I have just a few friends on XBL and only like 2 or 3 XB360 games I want to try online.
Micro-transactions to get online maybe... like a 3-day "friday-plus-weekend" pass for £1... I'd accept that even though "per day" I'm paying 3x more than with a year long pass it would be more cost effective. There are pay as you go phones, why not for XBL?
Do it Microsoft... just face it that some people aren't THAT willing to commit to your "service".
Even though it's less of a service, more like paying off a protection racket to access services that should be free, I just want my bribes to be more convenient.
