    Default XBLA: shouldn't this be free?

    That's the thing i dont like about Microsoft, Gamez on XBLA should have all been free. Microsoft would have gotten a lot more people buying their consoles. and they are wondering why they cant sell it to the casual gamer. Those XBLA games are quite fun, sometimes even more fun than some actual paid video games out there.

    So, why isn't this free?

    Yeah and those old SNES/NES/N64 games should be free on Wii, not to mention Sony's PSN games...

    Wow, are you talking about the same principle that people sell what they make, that thing that has existed for thousands of years?
    Amazing.

    These people are stupid then.
    A subscription service works, yes, but not at $25 anually.
    Royalties for movies are more than that and games developers are spending their own money to develop games for XBLA. Who is going to pay for that?
    The Xbox Live Gold subscription has nothing to do with XBLA and movies. You can get those with just a Silver account.

    XBLA is just like Steam: It's an online system that lets you purchase games. Nothing else.
    Should games on Steam be free too then? >.>

    Should music on iTunes/Urge/whatever be also free?

    How about movies on iTunes? Free also?
