  • Xbox Live Gold Membership, Price Hikes

    Posted on August 31st, 2010 Shawn No comments

    You may have seen the email today stating that on November 1, Xbox Live Gold memberships will be going up in price. The old/new pricing structure is below.

    Old Price New Price
    1-Month Gold Subscription $7.99 $9.99
    3-Month Gold Subscription $19.99 $24.99
    12-Month Gold Subscription $49.99 $59.99

    You may also remember from an E3 announcement that family plans will be coming this year as well.  If I remember correctly, you can have four Gold accounts for only $99, which blows the new announced pricing structure out of the water. If you have friends or family that you feel comfortable splitting the cost with, go that route.  If you are a loner, hurry up and stock up on 12 month Xbox Live Gold cards before the price goes up.

    Here’s more from today’s announcement:

    With an Xbox LIVE Gold membership, you can play blockbuster games such as Halo: Reach with your friends online, you can also stream movies from Netflix* and music from Last.fm right to your TV. You can even connect with friends near and far on Facebook® and Twitter™. Gold members also enjoy exclusive discounts and early access to game demos. And, this holiday, Xbox LIVE is adding new Gold features, including ESPN and Video Kinect, with Hulu Plus coming on Xbox Live in 2011.
    Because you are a loyal member, we want to give you the opportunity to lock in your current price with an additional discount. Log on to Xbox LIVE from your console to review and take advantage of these limited-time offers.
