Don't Require Live Gold for Free-to-play Games With Online

All Free-to-play games should be playable without Xbox Live Gold account. This is against the sense of free-to-play.

    PLEASE READ!!!! Hello Guys,This is a Life Time transformation !!!Am so happy I got mine from Elizabeth. My blank ATM card can withdraw $3,300 daily. I got it from him last week and now I have $16,500 for free for just a week. The blank ATM CARD withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it, it is not traceable and now i have money for business and enough money for me and my family to live on. I am really happy i met Kelvin Roland because i met two people before him and they took my money not knowing that they were scams. But am happy now. Kelvin Roland sent the card through DHL and i got it
    in two days. Get your own card from him now he is not like other scammer pretending to have the ATM card, he is giving it out for free to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught. i'm grateful to Kelvin Roland because he changed my story all of a sudden. The card works in all countries except Philippines and Mali. Kelvin Roland email address is kelvinroland.blankatm@outlook.com!

    I hate it.
    -Sony, play any free game with out a subscription..
    -PC, you already pay for internet service so we wont't charge you a cent.
    -Microsoft, You pay for internet but we're still going to make you pay for something that is free.

    the whole idea bugs me its not like there paying for the servers or really anything in general why do we have to pay to play a free game like elder scrolls online each month makes no sense

    Apart of why I ditched investing in the Xbox one market any further beyond win10 play support. I'm not paying for subscriptions to play what's listed as free (not free if their are strings attached to get free). Apart of what pushed me to invest in a ps4 pro and upgrade my ps4 and give my gf my ps4 slim. I'll gladly drop 10k on ps4 and Nintendo switch products since they are giving free to play games availability on non gold or premium subscriptions like ps+ or Nintendo online. I upvote this and state my funding allotment for.the year being solely invested in Nintendo and sony because they give this feature. Still can't get over the fact in 360 you need a golden subscription to use your Hulu or Netflix subscription but in Xbox one you don't. You've literally made me turn my Xbox one into a dust collector. A literal dust collector

    This actually made me mad af lol i was all hyped to play smite since it said free to play and then it says u require gold-_- almost sold my xbox for a PS right then and there

    Like someone previously stated this is basically saying here is free food, you just have to pay for it. This is essentially what they are doing by not making F2P games actually free and enabling multiplayer. The addition of free multiplayer on F2P games, along with the new console(Xbox one X) would not only get new users and make them feel intrigued to the Xbox system but also would give old users such as myself and millions others to enjoy the console to the fullest without such limitations. If anyone actually took the time to read my comment and put my thoughts into consideration, Thank you!

    The only things that should cost anything are expansion packs and DLC packs. Having to pay to play is taking away the game and our choice to choose so we are forced to comply, they literally are hanging it above our heads till they get payed, then you get "privileges". We already payed,...everyone payed to have the game. Not having PART of it, the FULL game. If you have all the features on the case, all of it should come with it. Not to mention the system as well that is able to run the software. If they don't clue in now, this company won't last long. But unless I know something of why they do this, my opinion still stands.

    I totaly agree, this is not fair to play free games and pay for them, microsoft should think about it and make free games to play really free

  • CardzZilla commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This should happen.

    As it is now, you are just giving people who are debating between getting an XB and PS one more reason to get a PS instead.

    If you change it to the same thing PS does, then:
    - Removing a reason people may pick a PS over a XB
    - Revenue for addons for F2P games should go up since now the install base much higher

    And one more huge reason is that doing so will work as advertising for other people to get XB live gold. Think about it, they see they like to play multiplayer now, so they decide to do so for more games.

  • MetricMars4 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Totally agree.
    An example: Gwent: The Witcher Card Game (F2P) system requirements "slight" difference between PS and XBOX:

    "XBOX Live Gold is required do play"
    "Playstation Plus" is not required do play"

  • EPICELMO4EVER commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I completely agree. After I complete a new games or if I just don't feel like playing them, I should be able to go a play a game that says exactly what it say. If it says free-to-play it should be. That's like say you'll get a free soda if you pay $1 in advance.

    Yes I cannot play a free to play game on x-box without live and I have 3 computers in the house. I only have minecraft and can't play the games that we already have on computer, including minecraft. The x-box is just sitting here because I cannot return it. Why pay a membership fee for something that is otherwise free to play?

  • BluePikmin10422 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Really Microsoft just give non gold members multiplayer privileges for either ALL games or at the free to play games!

  • peztechjr commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It's should be called Subscribe to Play. The term "free" means has no hook to buy.

    S2P not F2P

    Subscribe to Play not Free to Play. Let's make that distinction perfectly clear.
