Blame Microsoft for making a shitty console with a shitty service.
Whoa whoa whoa whoa now. Xbox Live is in no way a shitty service, it's honestly the best out of the 3 console choices.
Even the greedy fucks at Valve can't condone how inane Xbox Live is with it's monthly pay.
The monthly subscription fees help keep servers up and keep servers generally lag free.
World of Warcraft is just a single game with a £9 a month subscription, Xbox Live unlocks the possibilities of thousands of games for just £5 a month with savings if you buy 3/12 month packs. Just because Sony and Nintendo gives their stuff for free doesn't mean it's the better choice.
constant ads and little-to-no free updates.
Constant ads? Only if you're not a gold member which is fair.
Little to no free updates? It's the developers choice if they want DLC to be free or not. Not Microsoft's.
