Heh, and according to the email I just got: “*Price will increase to $29.99 per month in June. The exact date and more details will be communicated in a following email.”

So at what point in your meeting did you guys say “Lets send out an email letting people know we are going to be removing their Ultra or Infinite and we’ll be charging 14.99 a month for boost but then we’ll send them a second email less than a day later saying, Not really it’ll be 30 bucks for boost.”

 

Because that part of your meeting sucked donkeys.

Im sad man. 

I waited 6 months for my acount to be activated and got delayed. And all youre doing is being positive about the new changes and challanges without actually giving intell or insight on how much longer the new activations wil take….

I received the same communication. I’m a US customer that had the top tier and used it for Studio work as well as gaming. Now with Boost I can’t use it at all for the studio work and gaming would still be fine if they offered enough storage for my needs on that front.

Even still, having a full system accessible from any device would be fine at the $14.99/month price, but at $29.99/month there’s just no way I could justify what I’m getting at that price point. The competition for cloud gaming is too good to consider it against them.

Just a thought: If you couldn’t afford to keep leasing the graphics cards for the top tiers of the service in the US, maybe you should have considered asking us about raising prices for that service to pay for it and keep most of your customers, whom I’m sure would be more than happy to pay extra for it anyway (especially reading the comments here), rather than cut it off completely and almost certainly lose a huge amount of those customers that were using it.

Even worse, don’t just “hide” the fact you’re increasing the price of Boost in the fine print of an email.  I used to rant and rave about how great your were to everyone I could, but now I’ll have to steer everyone clear from this mess until I see some sort of clear improvement.
