Thats just stupid.
On the pc, XBL silver also supports online. Gold just adds crossplatform online.
If you have XBL gold account you get the windows one free.
Do you have to pay a subscription to play the PC version online? Or can you play for free against other PC players?

But its like £30 a year or something for live...
EDIT: as in thats what you pay for, not your comment.

Well for pc gamers nothing changes when they use xbl except if they play crossplatform. I'm sure ms would want to do that free as well but it would fuck up their pricing system.
I've got a feeling that the system will get a repricing sooner or later. They have been making shitloads of moneys from their dlc and the structure right now just doesn't make sense.
A 20 € a year for any gold subscription would make much more sense and would be much more attractive for pc gamers.
It would be interesting to see what MS's profits are on the whole dlc business.
