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.

    Microsoft are being a bit greedy here the whole point of this is FREE TO PLAY not needing gold

    That is why I prefer PC gaming. You only have to pay for the WiFi that you use and maybe any paid games, but with Xbox and PlayStation, you have to buy "Xbox Live Gold" or "PlayStation Plus"! It is just a cheap way to get more money. This deserves over a thousand more votes.

    Yes this is true. its says download something for free and you need xbox live gold like fortnite on xbox you need xbox live gold but on ps4 no ps plus is needed

    I did a lot of research before deciding on xbox, but missed this subtext.... I hate my xbox, costs me money every time I turn it on it seems and just getting access to internet based media should not cost me extra. My kids can play roblox on our microsoft pc, but on our super cool xbox we now have to pay for the very same games. What a rip off.

    Microsoft, please listen to us, you guys did a good job with EA Acces that the competitor does not have, and Retrocompatibility, but you need to put the Games that are free for no need to have Live Gold, since on PS4 you do not need to sign PSN PLUS to play the free games online

    Playstation 4 has the exact same free to play games as Xbox One does. Sony isn't forcing players to pay for PS Plus to play the free to play MMOs. When Microsoft is forcing us to pay for gold to play the F2P games. That is why I own both Xbox and Playstation FREE MULTIPLAYER MOVEMENT

    You need to pay xboxlive to access the battlefield1 online multiplayer? Compare to PC just buy the game play online and thats it,this is full time robery this should be remove its so unfair i bought the game for 60$ and you need to pay again to access online multiplayer

    You shouldn't have to pay 3/4 the price of the system EVERY YEAR just to play online.

    I just bought my kid the Xbox S, her first gaming console...and she can't play Roblox with the Gold subscription. Something she's been playing for free for two years on a PC. I wish I'd read about the Gold pass requirement for even the free games before I made the decision to buy the xbox vs. the PS4...bad mistake.

    I'll be adding this comment on Amazon so people see this before buying.

    I am considering to buy a gaming console. After a long research, I choose Xbox One S over PS4.
    But buying a subscription to play free to play games makes me reconsider my decision.

    Certain people don't have enough money for gold because they already spent money on the xbox and games. So people have to miss out because they don't have enough money. So less people want to buy a xbox because they already know their gonna miss out.

    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.

  • King Svenm commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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

  • supernet2 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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
