Still, a lot to spend if you're already invested on another system.

I'm wondering if I should keep my Xbox 360, I only have the Mass Effect series on it. Seeing as ME 2 and 3 are on PS3 which is my main console I could just rebuy them on that.

Really, I only have an Xbox for the first Mass Effect game.

You know that $70/year you are talking about? Try playing 99% of your games online without paying that. The only exception I can remember was the cross-platform xbox live/games for windows games. I believe you could play a couple of those without a gold account at one point in time.

The point being that the fee is not game specific.

It breaks down to like $6 a month, and usually you can find free months of Live being offered in exchange for filling out a survey or some other random promotion. Plus it's not hard to find Live cards on sale for like half price.
Yeah, I got one of those messenger packs (card plus chat pad, which I needed, plus 400 points or something and a wired headet I'll never use) for like 40 bucks. Since I needed to replace my chat pad, this worked out well for me.

I normally buy whenever there's a deal and I have less than a year. It's super easy to find them at a discount.

I usually get a discounted one from my brother's microsoft retail rewards, but the account needs to be re-verfied and it's a pain in the ass. Its like 50 percent off for Gold.
