    E3 on June 3rd !

    Xbox One dazzled and will continue to amaze. The only thing it is short of is ability to give BJs and mix a Margarita. I am guessing that games will be charged via subscription like Netflix and Itunes, $20/month for unlimited access to games? 200 million subscribers worldwide x $20/mon= $4 billion/mon on games alone!!!! or $5/mon to a single new game? This is a cash cow!

    Not including music, TV, movies, internet, Skype! Cash cow!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • To gamers, $5/mon/new game costs very little. This may be more cost effective for gamers but ends up costly over a long period of time. If they play the same game for an entire year, then it will run them about $60 which is break even if they were to buy the game. But most gamers get bored after a few months; thus, may save gamers some money to experiement instead of buying at $60. From msft perspective, it's a win win situation-- no friends can play for free, no sharing, and additive games will suck gamers on for a long time. This will drive the quality of games up. Cut out Gamestop middle man! Older games are at $2-3/mon/each.

      This good for an explorer like myself, I want to play for a few months and move on. If I catch something I like, I would not mind the continual subs, but I hate paying $60 for something that loses my interest after i open the box.

      This will be huge for Msft
