    There is talk in the US,that games coming out for xbox live will have an extra fee to pay to play them on live. the first being PSO the fee is because sonic team will use there own servers not MS. so would you pay extra on top of what you have paid already to MS?

    If I had X-Box live and I had a game that was worth paying for a subscription, then yes.

    The difference between a good free-to-air game and a good pay for game is unquestionable. If you paid for your service then you would be able to have servers that could support 32 players plus for FPS games and hundreds of thousands for RPG games. If you play public or host yourself you will get few players and likely bad connections.

    It is already happening in the PC world that servers are degrading more and more, very difficult to get on a public server (usually takes me at least 10mins to get on my regular CS servers) and the pings are getting worse (currently around 50-60 when I used to get 25-30). I would pay £5-10 a month depending on the game to guarantee a smooth service.
