Only in certain games though. It turns out that there are currently 3 games that you can play online on your 360 even if you have a Xbox Live Silver account
- Universe at War: Earth Assault
- Lost Planet: Colonies
It turns out that all cross-platform (Xbox 360-Windows) games are now playable for everyone online. While this is great news for all silver members, as a paying gold member I not really sure why we are getting the shortend of the stick. Now what do we get for that 50 dollars a year? If they are getting almost all the same benefits (yes I understand that we get to play all the Xbox 360 online games) for none of the costs, what reasons do we have to drop 50 a year on Xbox Live?
Let me know what you all think.
Thanks forums.xbox.com for the info
UPDATE: from Shacknews.com

The representative concluded that, “When the new Xbox experience launches this fall all multiplayer gaming on Xbox 360 will be for Gold members only.”
