    Party chat was the best gold feature pre-Modern Warfare 2. Main reason I renewed my gold.

    @JaggedCrane pre Modern Warfare 2? The party chat thing in Modern Warfare 2 hasn’t bothered me at all. Unless you were saying that now Modern Wasrfare 2 is the best gold feature… then I completely agree😀

    Because there aren’t enough annoying pricks on Live already, let’s allow some who haven’t got mum and dad’s credit card on there!

    I got a 360 shortly after the Elites came out. I picked up a PS3 a year later. I’ve always been a 360 fan, espec with the Arcade titles, and liked the ‘feel’ of the 360 controller better, so most of my purchases were 360… at first.

    MS and paying for Gold “features” is really doing more and more to alienate me. Why bother with paying? Netflix is avail on PS3 now (maybe not 1080p, but I’ve yet to find anything that looks horrible in Netflix streaming content). FB integration is coming in next update. Many gold “Deal of the Week” offers are cross-platform. Demos are avail on both systems at the same time w/o 2- to 4-week wait for Silver members; 90% of titles are available on both systems, with free multiplayer.

    Last.fm integration is still unique, and interesting, and I’d use it… but not for $4+ a month, when I can turn my PC on or boot into my Linux partition (on a much bigger hard drive) and listen/scrobble from there.

    As it is, paying for Gold is an insult, though I’m sure there’s plenty of Halo players will say otherwise. Espec now that competition has dropped to a similar price, maybe it’s time to extend that ‘free’ offer beyond 3 days, or find something unique to make it worthwhile.

    Good to hear, can’t wait to play MW2 on Live. But there’s no way I’m paying for it, not until the racism, sexism, homophobia and other personal insults (trash talk is fine) has been eliminated. Of course, that will never happen, so no subscription from me again.

    If there was a facility to block out players from certain countries though, I would hop on right away (will sort out the lag issues from having a host from the other side of the world too)

    Surely that’s already happened, last time I was on Gold it was 50% prepubescent American kiddies yelling obscenities!

    Your arrogance makes you sound like the prepubescent child. Do you really think that only Americans are rude on xbox live? That kind of thinking is unrealistic and immature. I’ve heard plenty of douche bags from the UK and from other countries on xbox live, as well as on the PC.

    If you can’t handle people being rude, then how do you make it through your daily life? You are weak minded. Grow up and grow a thick skin.

    The difference in real life is I don’t have to pay to be insulted. And maybe it’s just the times that I play on, but yes, all of the rude ones I have heard (and muted) are American. Once on the original Xbox I had a couple of scousers who you can deem “rude”, but certainly not in the “argg you whore I’m gonna snipe your jew bitch ass” manner.

    @Casserole sure its bad sometimes. But you can mute people and stuff. Anyways… I’ve found in playing cage match (1vs1) on cod4 that most people aren’t complete jerks, they might act like that with a bunch of people or just when dissing the other team, but if you get just one person to play with and talk to, you find out the majority of gamers are actually pretty cool. I have gained numerous cool friends that way. You start to build up a friends list of awesome people and then you don’t have to worry about the losers:)

    Casserole is just another anti-american person who will find any reason to hate. I say, lets all get along, but people like her don’t want that. Makes me wish we’d stop helping other countries.
