Rumortoid: Survey gauges interest in 1 vs. 100 pay-to-play

Rumortoid: Survey gauges interest in 1 vs. 100 pay-to-play photo



There's nothing more fun than being expected to pay to play a game on a service you're already paying to use, and it seems more and more likely that Microsoft is going to make such dreams a reality. A survey has been unearthed that lends more credence to the suggestion that MS will soon be charging for the privilege of playing 1 vs. 100, as it gauges interest among the consumer for such an initiative.

The survey asks the dreaded question: "If 1 vs. 100 were not available as part of your Xbox Live Gold Membership Account, how likely would you be to purchase 1 vs. 100 for $15 per season (13 weeks)?"

The current business model is that 1 vs. 100 is "free" to XBL Gold members, but is supported by commercials. Microsoft, however, is incredibly greedy and would obviously jump at the chance to gouge more cash out of the pockets of its customers. Methinks that if enough people are stupid enough to answer positively (and they will, because most people are idiots), then 1 vs. 100 will soon be pay-to-play. 

Oh, and it'll most likely still be full of commercials. Because this is Microsoft we're talking about.

Halo Online doesn't look half bad in motion

Yeah, this is about what I would expect from a free-to-play, multiplayer-only Halo game for Russia. That fast-forwarded run through the customization menu at 0:33 is telling -- rentable weapons, boosts, and "special offers."...more

How does twice the number of Games with Gold in April sound?

We're at that point in the month where it's time to start thinking about which adorable kitten is waiting to replace that other adorable kitten when you flip your calendar, and less importantly, what Xbox's Games with Gold ti...more

Multiplayer-only Halo Online headed to Russia

Halo Online sounds like something you'd see scribbled on a homemade DVD complete with copyright-infringing cover art but, no, it's a proper PC game in development at Saber Interactive. Granted, it's a free-to-play, multiplaye...more
