Midas Touch: The Xbox Live Gold Paywall Fiasco

(Pt. 1)


Last Level Press’ Youtube Channel:


The Midas Touch miniseries investigates what gamers are really getting for their money from Xbox Live Gold now and in the future.  Already an incomplete list just in the span of time between filming and editing this video, I'm counting off each feature of the Xbox Live Gold service that Microsoft has launched for present and next-gen consoles.  


With the release of the Xbox One just a month away, gamers need to know, now more than ever, just what they're buying or not buying.  


I founded LLP on the bases of honesty and the resistance of bias, and damnit, I've kept as open a mind to Microsoft as I possibly could up until now.  The gloves, however, had to come off at some point, so...consider this one equal parts editorial and news piece.
