MS has just given a free weekend of multi player gaming for people with only silver profiles.

Enjoy and exploit the opportunity to try ACB multi player, if you haven't already http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well, some people don't have the money for it.
Or people might not fancy ACB MP.
It might be a good opportunity for them to try before buy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

XBL annoys the hell out of me (but then I am a PS3 boy). Internet is not cheap as it is so I cannot see how Xbox can justify charging people to play online. I know there is more to the service than that but at its core... it is all I would do with it.

I'm not starting a console war... my bro has an Xbox and I war enough with him about it.

Nice to see that they are giving it away for a weekend though. Enjoy it

Not everyone wants to play online, and the cost that involves - however this is an ideal opportunity http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

the better question is why do people think Live is worth a subscription fee when every other console and the PC lets you play multiplayer for free?

I have all 3 consoles and a gaming PC, can you guess the one I wont ever use for multiplayer? I refuse to pay for a service that should be free.

Multy-player is not such important to me couse mostly I'm only playing the Fifa online(and sometimes Forza 3)

It would be much better to me If they would give us from Marketplace something for free, some DLC or atleast some Premium dashboard theme.

I think the multy-player should be free all the time and it's ridiculous couse we have to pay for that.
I think If they could the MS would charge us the air what we breathe but unfortunately for them that's not possible.

MS actually tried to charge for PC multiplayer, but as a result it lead to pirate servers and making MS lose the ability to police online play for pirate copies so in the end they had to drop it.

MS do what to charge for online play but this is because they want 100% control over the online service and games removing publishers from loop, meaning MS dictates how long a game is playable for and when the online services terminate. (just like they already shut down live on original xbox yet multiple PS2 games are still playable online)

Exactly my words...
It's a opportunity for the rest of us,
that are already online, to get more easy targets to assassinate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif haha
