Many of today’s games usually come at a hefty price. If you were to play a game through Xbox Live, you would have to have a subscription with them. Plus you have to pay for the game which usually runs about 60 bucks and additional content that will probably be released over the course of the next couple of months. It can actually get pretty expensive.Same thing goes for playing PC games. You buy the game which might require some subscriptions as well. Many people don’t like the fact of havin to buy additional stuff just to play a game they have already payed for. On the other side, you can argue that it’s good to have a pay to play feature. Xbox live needs money to help keep their business and servers up. Same thing can be said for an online game on the computer. Role playing games usually have servers in which large numbers of people can pay on all at once. To have these servers up 24/7 cost a grest deal of money. That’s just one thing that costs them money. Some people think with all the money they make from selling the game and such, they should have more than enough to allow online for free. What do you all think about companies that have games that have been round for a while like Blizzard. Should companies make you pay to play? If so, should the cost be reduced? The average online MMORPG costs about 12-15 bucks a month.
