  1. Why does xbox live gold need to exist?


    Hi there everyone I need this answered as I have been a loyal xbox customer since the 360 was released and I was wondering why does xbox live gold need to exist anymore back in 360 days it made sense as microsoft had just started online play but nowadays we have online only games and gamepass so why does gold need to be around all it does is prevent people from playing the ganes they bought with friends, or in some cases playing the game at all example fallout 76 you cant play that unless you have gold or gamepass so make online play free plz.

    :)

    FIFA 14 - Gamer Profile does not have correct permissions

    Hello,

    You need to have a Xbox LIVE Gold membership (paid) in order to for you to be able to play online with others. The account you're currently logged into does not have a gold membership which is why you're getting this message.

    Why does xbox live gold need to exist?

    Xbox live/online play started on the original xbox long before the xbox 360 even existed.

    The xbox servers cost money to run & they're a lot more secure than other platforms.

    I remember when the Playstation/PSN servers were free & trust me,it was terrible.

    A years live isn't expensive & if Microsoft rewards is available in your region then you can pretty much get live/ultimate for free.

    I've not paid for a gold sub in ages thanks to rewards.

    Microsoft don't make any money on selling consoles either so they need another way to make a profit.

    It is an easy way for a company to make a profit by charging for online gaming since the cost of maintaning the servers will cost less than they're bringing in.

    As for the Games for gold, Microsoft only started doing that to compete with what Sony was doing with the PS4 and Sony wasn't any better with their pricing either for PS+.

    Sony was losing money for a few years and a few months after they increased the price of PS+ to what it is now, they reported their first profit if a few years and have stayed in profit ever since.
