- Great news for Xbox players!
They're also going to allow you to join a party without Gold too so that's an added bonusID: gvc3vfl
Imagine if they forced you to SOLO. LmaoID: gvcklus
Since match making is broke you essentially play solo 4 out of 5 games anyway.ID: gvcnipp
WDYM you get solo qued even tho you have fill on 22.214.171.124.9.9 percent of the timeID: gvcm6c9
Free to play games actually free to play on Xbox nowID: gvc6bpn
You couldn't join a chat party without gold? That's rough, never knew you were so restricted without gold on Xbox.ID: gvc8agr
fortunately it was only 60$ a year, which is not little but its not over charging. You also got free games every month and discounts but it was still a shady practice, pretty much forcing you to buy gold. luckily they are moving away from stuff like that and being more about the consumers or whatever.ID: gvd1b7o
Hugeee, my Xbox just ran out and I did the 1 dollar trial because they wouldn’t let me join a party lol. Now I don’t have to renew at allID: gvctfv0
So why does Gold even exist?ID: gvd5si2
I think games that are not free still need gold for onlineID: gvddo6j
To pay for server upkeep for parties and to return a profit from their loss leading strategies
About time! I hate that F2P games still require goldID: gvc5frw
Honestly it’s disappointing xbox still needs gold to play other games like CoD or TF. I was looking forward to them phasing it out, and having GP as their cash cow :/ID: gvc72co
They are slowly ridding of gold. they are gonna make it the "xbox network" or whatever and its gonna be free. the perks of gold will be included in gamepass for the monthly free games and discounts.ID: gvcfpby
Not anymore, they just announced itID: gvcbidk
That's insane. I thought this was a super common practice. I'll pick up apex for a few months and go without subbing to PS and grab some packs instead. Jeez xbox wtf?!?!?ID: gvccixe
They said they were gonna change it soon
Good for you guys. My playstation has been little more than an Apex machine for the last couple years. Who knows if I would have stuck around if there was a bill to play the game.ID: gvcadon
Wait... Do you not need to pay on PS4 to play apex?ID: gvcalow
Nope, F2P games like Apex don't require Playstation Plus. You do need it for multiplayer "paid" games like a Battlefield and such though
Love the picture they chose for a game with no local multiplayerID: gvcdbl7
Maybe they got two xbox's at the same time.
Or dude's just given a controller that's not connected, like a younger sibling lmao.ID: gvcog3u
I'm not sure which of these I want to believe because they're both hilarious.ID: gvcojak
Plus she's smiling, huge lie !ID: gvcvsts
It's a wraith player ditching her teammates, about to drop the round all together.
So I just found out I’ve been paying for PlayStation Plus purely for Apex when I didn’t need to... thanks to this post for saving me a few quid!ID: gvcpa00
i bought 6 months of xbox live just for apex so now like half of it is just wasted hhhID: gvcwu1z
If you bought xbox live gold you can upgrade your remaining time to game pass ultimate for $1ID: gvcnt42
You got some good games from it though!ID: gvd09xq
I mean FF7 Remake is way more than a years subscriptionID: gvcu0bz
Have you not been claiming the free games?ID: gvct8ms
Wait you needed to pay to play Apex on Xbox?
wtf i just redeemed 3 months of xbox live gold yesterday lolID: gvcmffs
Play titanfall 2ID: gvcnyzh
it is only like 10 bucks on amazon, i'll consider itID: gvcayli
Hate how ps3 xbox360 free online died with ps4 and xbox have live gold and psplus JUST to play onlineID: gvcbonn
Paying to play online is the primary reason why I don't understand playing multiplayer games on consoles.ID: gvctbzb
360 was never free online. Xbox has required subscription since the original.
Nice! I have a second Xbox in the bedroom for my wife so she can play apex with me. Now I won't have to pay for a live sub for her in addition to my game pass sub
That’s great but also how it should have always been. Online subscriptions are dumb af, especially if you need them to play free games.
WAIT THEY DID?!
Breaking news: free game now free
I do not own a xbox , i'm a ps4 gamer but i am happy for the xbox homies
I just cancelled my subscription
I always didn't get why would you have to pay multiplayer on xbox when on other platforms you could just play it if you buy the game
Damn thats rough ps plus has been this way since its been on ps4, any game you can download free you can play for free online as well. I assumed Xbox was the same way but I guess this makes sense since you need gold to access Netflix too which is odd
