Trying to sort out the differences between PSX2 and XBox. Currently we have both systems in our house. Although only the PSX2 is online. The XBox is not online, however my other son wants it to be. I understand you need the XBox live kit . BUT!! Am I to understand that there is a FEE to use the XBox for online play? With the PSX2, my older son simply goes online to play, but if my other son wants to play his XBox online, we HAVE to pay for this? You CANNOT simply go online to play as with the PSX2? Anyone shed some light on this please. Also what is this XBConnect I read about? Is this necessary? Useful? Or usefully necessary? Just some inquiries before I look into this for the XBox. We already have the sytem, not the online portion.
