View Full Version : XBox Live for everyone?

02-04-2003, 11:39 AM
The other day I was flipping through one of my XBox mags when I found a small part that I hadn't seen before. It says that Microsoft may try to get involved in broadband to try and bring the price down in the coming years. It said down to around $25/month.

I say go for it. Who says monopolies are bad?
Hey, that's my favorite game!!!

:eyeraise: :eek: $25 a month? Damn, we can only hope.....I don't have broadband yet myself, so LIVE is not an option. At least not right now.......I think we might see an opportunity here in the coming week or so. :D

That is pretty cheap! I pay around $40 a month right now.

If it happens, it will no doubt cause an uproar by all MS haters.

I'm paying $30 a month right now and it's a absolute steal for the amount of bandwith I use/have. As more and more people get broadband the price will go down further.

Don't tell my cable company, but I'd pay double, if not more for my connection that I love so much :D Good thing I don't have to though

You don't have broadband?


I've been using it for years and cannot imagine life back on a 56k. I'd have to say goodbye to BF 1942 if I did that.

I got Xbox Live a month ago but my parents have been too busy to help me install it, since our router is on a difference floor then the Xbox.

That would fit my budget nicely. And then I would have to consider buying an XBOX

Yeah, well I grew up on consoles. The original Nintendo came out when I was 10 yrs old......I just got into pc etc back in July, so I'm a little behind. All I have now is this POS paperweight I call a pc. It works......for now. :)

25 bucks a month? All I know is my family pays 50 bucks a month for DSL.

Leemu, you'll be quite happy with broadband. :D

How does XBox work?

I know the new XBox systems already got it in but the older ones don't.

So what do I have to do or buy to get XBox Live?

You just buy Xbox Live(Assuming you have broadband already). I already had broadband and a router, I just need to set it up.
