Reasons To Ditch The Xbox 360 #3: Xbox Live Gold(digger)
As fantastic as Xbox Live Gold is, we really wish we didn’t have to pay for the privilege. When you add up the subscription fees over the years, it starts to become a bit of a rip-off — especially compared to the PlayStation Network, which is completely free. If you’ve been a Gold member since the console’s launch in 2006, you’ve essentially handed over an additional $400 for online gaming (make that $529 if you’re using a wireless adaptor, but we wont go there). Either way, that’s a lot of money that could have been spent on games. If you’re a stickler for value, go for the PS3 Slim.
