Unless listed above, there is no change in any other subscription packages.



Since launching Xbox LIVE in 2002 we have continually added more content and entertainment experiences for our members, while keeping the price the same. We’re confident that when the new pricing takes effect, an Xbox LIVE Gold membership will continue to offer the best value in the industry.



However, we do want to thank our loyal members and give you the opportunity to lock in your current price with an additional discount, so now would be a good time to renew your subscription.

I was dismayed when I saw the title but £1 extra isn't too bad I guess.
But I'm going to stop paying through debit by November. Instead I will buy yearly codes or 3month codes.
I don't like the idea of £5 going out of my bank account every month that much. And so £6 is a bit too much to me.

Still, regardless of the price, I shouldn't be charged extra for a service full of features I barely use. I use online play and cross-game chat. THAT'S IT. I was already reluctant about paying $50 a year for that, so unless Microsoft adds some useful features to justify the even higher price tag, I'll be even more reluctant to pay (although I most likely will since I'm a tool).

Thats why they probably are raising it. Because they know people will pay.

Well atleast in N.A. the price is justified at $60 (US)


In Europe and the Pacific... no way near.

It's not justified at $60 either, but I do feel sorry for those who have to pay more and receive less.

Yeah, this stinks. Someone I talked to earlier had a perfect fix for this; Microsoft should offer a third tier of service. Silver stays as-is. Gold includes online play, x-game chat, and it's party system while either remaining $50 per year or dropping to $40 a year. Platinum should be created for the $60 price point and include ESPN, FaceBook, Netflix, & Twitter integration. Options are always a good thing so long as they don't confuse the consumer.

I like that idea. I also like the idea of a pick-and-choose service. Each service has an individual price, and you pick which ones you want that will ultimately add up to your fee. There could also be bundles and deals, like Facebook and Twitter each cost $5 a year, but if you buy both together, you get two for the price of one.

I think its justified at $60, but I probably only say that because I'm used to getting ripped off when it comes to buying games.

You work with percentages.

I look at the numbers.
