    Just got an email from XBL stating an increase in subscription price($10 extra for 1 year I believe); though they are offering a $39.99 lock-in price. Jump on it!

    Really? That's odd to me. PSN has always worked fine for me. If I play 20 games of Modern Warfare, I'll lag out on maybe 1 of them...

    Yeah, I looked at PSN Plus, and I really didn't see anything that was worth spending money on. It's not like they're holding out. Basically you get access to some betas, and discounts on a few games and some media through the PSN store. The free service still does everything you'd need and want it to do.

    I'm really to the point where I need to re-up my XBL account or just get rid of the damned 360. I don't think I've even turned it on for 6 months now. Trade in for a Wii maybe?

    GT5 Prologue has played fine for me, and my internet connection blows. I pay for the 12g service from comcast and sometimes I'm lucky to get as high as 4g down and random kb up... I live out in the middle of nowhere and they periodically go around and fix what is wrong and I'll get as high as 10 down. Anyway, GT5 has been ok for me most of the time. Sometimes people do skip and cause wrecks before the game makes them go invisible. Its a damn demo though, I'm sure the finished product will be fine.

    I never noticed my xbox being any better with forza or any other game before I got rid of that thing before it melted on me. Damn jet engine sounds that came out of it. The download speeds for updates/arcade games were better.

    The Wii is really fun if you have a lot of guests. Otherwise, xbl is just a good way to stay up to date on the electronic/gaming world along with some other things.

    all you can do is buy pre-paid cards on amazon. after that, there will probably be discounts every once in a while, but thats about it.

    Xbox.com | price lock - Renew now and save 30% off Gold

    expires Oct 31

    It's only 1 year but I guess that's not bad considering you can renew at discount prices later on as they always have "specials". Thing I don't know about, which one of you guys may know, is if I renew now does it add on to my current subscription or does the 1 year reset so to say?
