    XBOX 720 to have $15.00 a month subscription fee....

    Microsoft seems to be on track to officially reveal the Xbox 720 at its May 21 event in Redmond, Wash. Previously, technology blogger Paul Thurott said that one of the upcoming Xbox models will be priced at $299 with a subscription for $10 a month, but now Thurrot says that the subscription fee will be $15 per month.

    SO folks this would create another boom in our cash flow each quarter....

    • Xbox 720 To Get PGR 5 On Launch....

      Project Gotham Racing is something that an Xbox platform deserves, especially at launch. Bizarre Creations, who developed these games, were closed and in their place Lucid Games were formed which consisted of ex-Bizarre developers.

      Earlier there was a rumour floating around which mentioned that the studio was developing Project Gotham Racing 5 for the next gen Xbox, and they also came from a reputable source.

      It’s still speculation but a recent Facebook comment by Lucid Games has somewhat hinted that the game could be announced on May 21st at the Xbox 720 reveal event.

      The post reads: “So yeah, Mid-May will be interesting for the studio. We have some exciting updates coming. Stay tuned!”

      The comment says something about “mid-may”, so it looks like the game is set to be announced soon. They had also earlier teased an image which kind of hints at the game.

      so subsidy bad in phone, good in xbox?

      especially if you pay $15/mo. for subscription instead of $10 price avail. now?

      hey, emperor! i see it getting even colder! more hot air needed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Just to add that during the third quarter 2013 earnings, MSFT reported that Xbox Live subscriptions have increased 18% over the prior year's same period. The total number of subscribers is now over 46 million worldwide.

      Additionally, the entertainment and devices division posted revenue of $2.53 billion, which is up "56%" over last year.

      SO the $15.00 subscription for XBOX 720 will further balloon our earnings and if we decide to compete with Netflix, you can do the math....

      IT is also worth noting that Electronic Arts will be producing the next few games (such as Respawn) as XBOX "exclusive" and that would be the real driving force for increasing our subscription base.
