It takes a lot of work to put together a robust service like Xbox Live. However, it takes just as much work trying to figure out how a digital service could raise its prices, especially when direct competitiors don't even charge in the first place.
Regardless of things not making sense, Microsoft has saw fit to raise its Live subscriptions by as much as 10 doll hairs for nearly every territory. $60 dollars for a one-year subscription? That would make sense if, you know, they added some sort of incentive. I personally don't care about ESPN, and I'm paying for Kinect usability when I, you know, buy Kinect. This seems to be a classic case of the greedy being greedy.
People will still pay for it, though.
