Free XBL Gold? No Wai.

Although, if this speculative rumor does come true, maybe Chris can go online.

Michael Wolf, a PR guy for Microsoft, has expressed a view, that could be taken to mean that XBL Gold MAY indeed become free in the near future.

"We're not stupid, and we're not gonna expect PC gamers to suddenly start paying for something that they currently get for free, but we're also going to be fair to our Xbox 360 owners and not expect them to pay for something that PC gamers are getting for free. So, we're figuring it out. We're figuring out a model that works for consumers, that works for us, 'cause at the end of the day we're working with our partners to make money off this thing. It's a business after all. Kinda driving towards finding the right solution that everyone's going to be happy with."

Take that for what it's worth. Maybe Microsoft has recouped enough money on flash games, I mean XBL marketplace games, such as rootbeer tapping, or other stuff? But considering nothing, including even pictures for your gamertag, have been free on XBL, I seriously somehow doubt this to be more than some PR move (Wolf is a PR guy afterall).

 Some think this may be necessary to compete with the PS3 and the Wii, but lets take a look. No one wants a PS3, and the Wii will never be online, so….
