After the recent news about Playstation allowing their gamers on the PS4 to play the Elder Scrolls Online MMORPG without having to sign up or pay for the additional Network Subscription, thoughts were high about Microsoft doing the same on their Xbox One.
However, sources confirm that Microsoft still aren't budging and are pretty much set in stone that if any user wants to play any compatible game online, then they must have a paid subscription to Xbox Live active. Peter Hines, Part of the Press Release for Bethesda states: "Unfortunately, Microsoft's mind has yet to be changed. "The answer right now is that's the way it works, but it's something that we're aware of and we keep pushing on, to see if there's something that can be done." Elder Scrolls Online is due to be Launched on both the PS4 and XboxOne in June, with Beta Sessions planned to start within the next couple of weeks. However, only time will tell if Microsoft will realize that they are just adding another reason to the list of why to buy a PS4 over their Xbox One with their negative stance on changing the way they operate, even when it comes to a $200 Million game that wants to share a part of it's own players subscription fee's for the privilege of using the Live Network.
