To sum up the important stuff regarding XBL:

There will be two versions of Xbox Live. Silver is free (everyone gets it), and Gold is a paid subscription, like the current XBL. It looks like Xbox Live will be free on the weekends for everyone; Gold members will get it all the time, obviously. Current Xbox Live accounts will carry over to the 360 and become Gold Xbox Live accounts. Both Gold and Silver members will be able to download demos, trailers, and other content through XBL.

I saw a report a little bit back that quoted the console being in a 250 to 300 dollar range.

it seems they feel threatened by Nintendo pay-nothing online perspective, so theyve made two different types. maybe not?

Creating a way for people who can't afford online to actually get online anyways is a smart marketing mood. If I was only able to play over the weekends, because thats when the feature was available, then I think that would eventually make me want to purchase the feature so I could experience it all the time. Xbox Live is the main appeal of the Xbox. A lot of people only bought an Xbox to experience Xbox Live. If they make it free at times, then more people will buy the system.
