Petition to Microsoft, Phil Spencer

Make Xbox Gold Membership free for everyone

I got an Xbox One in 2014 for Christmas. I was so excited when I got games like Halo Master Chief collection, Forza Horizon 2, and more recently, Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield 1. They're all amazing games when you're offline doing single player stuff, but then it gets boring really quick. I wanted to try out mulitplayer for the games but saw that it was worth a fairly expensive cost to play. Me as well as many other people don't have the time nor the freedom of spending a lot of money on something. I have done some online play for a couple months now but it's frustrating when you're schedule is packed an can't play for a week of so, and you're just wasting time and you're money away. I also have a PS3, and online play is totally free. All you have to do is sign up for PSN with your email and you're set! They had good revenue just like the Microsoft had with the Xbox 360 at the time. Sometimes I just go onto my PS3 and play online since it's free, but now with these new and better games on Xbox One and PS4, I feel pushed into the direction of getting a longer and more expensive Gold subscription to go online with Xbox. It makes no sense to me that many of your customers are teenagers, like myself, and we can't put together the cash and time to do our favorite hobby. The service needs to be free, and to the people reading this and think that Microsoft will get less revenue, here's my argument. More people will get an Xbox One and the games when they see that online gameplay is free. Therefore they will get more revenue in, in that way rather than enacting fees on the service itself. Also they should make their music and TV services cost a little more money to make up for whatever is lost by making Gold free. Making Gold completely free will make me and so many others happy and have like Microsoft and their services more. Thanks for reading my argument and if you support my cause then please sign it and leave a comment!
