I am reading talk that Microsoft is making Net play free. That is why they have removed 12 month XBL Gold from sale. My requests are being read and answered!? I have always been a Sony person and I never paid for PS"+". I was going to move to PC but now I can buy an Xbox and feel very happy. I already prefer Series X to PS5 in all areas, except for SSD. Microsoft is trying to banish 30fps, Sony is embracing it with all their top games. Microsoft made a good looking machine, Sony made a stupid kiddo looking machine. I hope online play becomes free for Xbone and 360 as well.
