Hasn't microsoft had enough backlash for trying to price rape their customers????? All the more reason to go with PS4. I know if i had 3 kids, i sure as heck wouldn't pay $240 a year so my kids could play online, when PS4 is $5 per month per account. The only thing xbox one has going for it is a few exclusive titles.

Sorry i meant to say, $5 per month per console on the PS4. Only 1 account to have PS+, and the other accounts on the console will enjoy the benefits and online play.

Xbox One will be allowing multiple users per account, just like PS4. This article fails to mention that the reason why family packs are being removed is because you will only need 1 account going forward.

Sorry for the double post, GGG, I'm not sure if it applies to the 360 or not, but I would take a guess that it would as they are tying the accounts across platforms.
This article seems to confirm that it will work on 360, http://www.slashgear.com/xbox-one-will-allow-multiple-users-on-single-xbox-live-membership-22283155/. That makes sense, if you can go cross platform with the membership, the accounts should work too!

nate, while one account will allow you to have a 360 and an XBOX ONE you only get the gold features on multiple accounts on the XBOX ONE itself, so to maintain gold features on all your 360 accounts (4 in my case) means you need 4 gold memberships now. Now they may be changing that in the next dashboard update, but as it stands 360 family pack owners are stuffed.
