I'm not even that big on multiplayer, but I do play sf regularly online. It's nice when you can purchase a game and not worry about doing a bevy of things online when it's most active or before your sub runs out. On the 360 you pay for live but there's no guarantee that if you buy a game that's been out for a few you will even get persons to play with. It's the same scenario as a ps3 owner purchasing that very game only without a further gamble placed on their money.Bad PR doesn't mean t makes good business sense to throw away money. As mentioned here already, there are several places where 13 months of live costs $40.
Either you haven't done the math or you're debating from a point of pure self interest.
To be honest, finding live for cheap is not the point, though I would like you to link me to 13 months of live @40 just for show, (several places at that). I'm just saying that 360 multiplayer doesn't offer anything special over the competition, so why the markup, it doesn't guarantee that you will get persons to play with or that your experience will be that much better, it's a gamble just like the free service from the competition.
