Today’s news regarding Microsoft’s $10 price hike for Xbox Live Gold subscriptions has expectedly hit a nerve, and while numerous readers have fallen back to the old “HAHA! And PlayStation Network costs how much? Oh, right! It’s still free” position (even though the new PSN plus does have a monthly subscription fee), DreamingDarklyRobin cut directly to the soul of the matter with this supremely pointed insight:
"Wait Microsoft, you mean to tell me that I can pay EVEN MORE money to be called gay?"
I actually have zero problem with Microsoft raising the monthly XBL fee by less than $1 a month, but DreamingDarklyRobin, well played. And the comment couldn't be more topical either given the letter our Webmaster posted this morning about raising the level of discourse online. You might say we are dreamers, but we're not the only ones.
