  • I had seen somewhere a while ago that someone had been talking about Xbox doing a subscription based option the same way cell phones are done. I know nothing about actual pricing but lets say there would be a standard model for the regular price, say $500 and the subscription model for less, call it $200-$250 or whatever. The standard model would connect to Live through the standard yearly $60. The subscription model would be a monthly charge. Call it $10-$15 a month. This would give people the option to get the newest console right away for a more reasonable price. The fees they would be paying monthly for the service would more than make up the discount given on the cheaper model. I could see the subscription model having to have always on, like was mentioned in the cast, just so you couldn't get a console, cancel the service then keep using the machine. I wouldn't be surprised if the standard model wasn't an always on model. There would be no reason to have always on if you owned the machine outright. It would be stupid of Microsoft to do something that would alienate so many people.
