If PS3 have a free online subscription, then why Xbox just make it for free? Microsoft doesn’t really have a reason to stop charging at the moment. According to company statements, the Xbox has outsold the PS3 by 8 million units overall and beat out its Sony rival for holiday sales. Add to that the fact that Xbox Live recently had its largest sign up of new customers ever, admittedly with some technical problems, and you can see why Microsoft is not in any hurry to change tactics.
So if you’re one of the millions of new Xbox owners trying to get online visit Amazon before the end of the month. Hmm, I wonder why they don’t care about Nintendo?
