Honestly, I'm surprised this didn't happen sooner.

Alas, if it wasn't for L4D(2), I would cancel my subscription.

I've been a member since 2004, and the fact that it has taken this long for an increase is actually pretty good, IMO.

It's true that services like Steam and PSN offer online play for free, but the hardware costs associated with either a gaming PC or a PS3 offset that, IMO.

They are going to offer a family deal, though. $99 for four GamerTags.

What pisses me off about it is that I still have to pay for DLC and what not. I don't even get a discount.

The reason a lot of DLC costs money, or at least in Valve's case, is because Microsoft charges to host the content on their servers. Valve would release DLC for Left 4 Dead (2) for free, they don on PC, it's part of updates, but they have to pay Microsoft to host the content.

Even though the prices is going to go up, service won't improve. That's what gets me.

Surprised? No, not really. I can be miffed at it though since we pay so much for stuff on Xbox already (at least I do), i.e.: Gamerpics, DLC, Avatar Stuff. I know, I don't have to buy the Gamerpics and whatnot but the standard and free pics and clothes are mostly garbage.. I want to be a little more defined in this big community.

If they were perhaps adding things that I gave a crap about to the service or marked down the DLC to 800 points a pop regardless what the DLC entails then I'd be a little less pissed. I still don't understand how Microsoft needs more money but I will grin and bare it because I do love my 360, and for all the time I have used it I never really had problems with lag (from Microsoft servers) or crashing of any sort.
