It seem to only go bad at peak times. So...take off that 50% and you get about 96 cents. I think they are being more than generous giving a free arcade game on top of all the free stuff we get already.
They should just give you 96 cents of free live tacked onto the end of the year you paid for.....
Well I think I calculate it differently. I dont play games 24/7 365. So the week of christmas (when I was off work) was going to be a major gaming week for me.
$50 and 100 days of gaming/yr (yes I have a life) = 50¢ * 14 days = $7. Plus lets not forget the inconvenience of having to try and play online = wasted time. I make $25/hr and spent at least 5 hours of games beign dropped etc. = $125.
Total = $132
now what really pisses me off is this spin:
"Sorry for the trouble, it was all these new users! WE HIT NEW RECORDS! WE ARE #1!"
Notice how they dont even take responsibility for the problem? They blame the new users!
