Oh and on top of the monthly fee we have to pay for most DLC and Arcade Games, Yeah teh demo's are nice and dont even get me started on Avatar clothing. The main thing that brought how much of a tool i am to my attention is that there is Some DLC coming out for Left4dead here soon, PC users get the DLC for free, BUT 360 users have to pay around 500 MS points to get the exact same content
Arcade games and whatnot shouldn't always be free. Particularly Arcade games which are standalone so the companies that make them have to get paid somehow anyway. DLC is debatable, but mostly it'll cost money for either the download or hard copy of it (Like extra Halo maps). The L4D is an exception, which is a bit annoying, but it doesn't really bother me too much.
Spending money on avatar clothing is just plain retarded, but hey, if you don't want to, then don't. It's not like it's forcing you to spend money to get new clothing.
Yeah, Microsoft is greedy, this is true, but they also offer a good product that you choose to partake in if you so want. You may feel like a tool, and if so, then don't pay anymore, sell your 360, get a PS3. I still feel fine with the way things are, nothing so far has exactly struck me as outrageous.
