Do you think MS will counter and offer free online play for silver - and premium features and content for Gold?
I think something like this could be in order:
Silver free - online play, Netflix for free, chat and messaging, as well as Facebook and Twitter
Gold - online play, party features, Last.fm, beta passes and free TV shows, two free movie rentals a month and demos at least 2-3 weeks earlier than silver.
What do you think?

I added a tidbit at the bottom of this thread about the highlights of the PDF from the investor conference.
