    Xbox 360 Pachter: Xbox Live Likely to See 100usd 'Platinum' Service

    From [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]:

    This week Microsoft officially announced a $10 increase to the annual Xbox Live Gold subscription. In a special Pachter's Podium last year, Wedbush Morgan Securities' Michael Pachter correctly predicted the $10 increase.

    As for Xbox Live's future, the great thing about the $10 increase is that it will enable Microsoft to reinvest in the service to then offer even more enhancements. "The extra $10 translates to around $100 - 150 million per year in additional revenue for Microsoft. I think that they will reinvest at least this much in developing other new applications, and will roll out a premium service with $100 - 200 million worth of enhancements," Pachter told IndustryGamers. "If they can get 2 million users to switch from the $60 plan to the $100 plan, they'll make an extra $80 million a year, and can keep investing to try to grow that business."

    $100m to $150m what will that bring probably more useless addons that we already have i.e. Facebook, Twitter etc. And they still wont budge regarding BBC iPlayer.

    I just wish Pachter would fuck off............... Pachter "I predict M$ will put the price to $80 a month" M$ "Well if Pachter said it we better do it, it makes sense."
