Xbox Live Gets a Price Hike
Originally posted by Inactive User
Microsoft has announced that as of November 1, 2010, the price for Xbox Live Gold will go up in Canada, the US, United Kingdom and Mexico. The annual fee will go up by $10 in the United States, with one and three month subscriptions also going up in price.

Starting November 1, a one month subscription in the US will cost $9.99 and a three month subscription will carry a price tag of $24.99. These are increases of $2 and $5 respectively. In the UK, a one month subscription will go up by 1 GBP to 5.99. Canadian and Mexican one month subscriptions will go up by $1 CAD and 100 Pesos each to $9.99 and 599 Pesos. All other subscription packages will have the same prices.

In a posting, Microsoft spokesperson Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb explained the hike:

"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."

Analyst Jesse Divinich of EEDAR believes this price increase will not have a major effect of Microsoft's momentum or subscription base, saying that, "EEDAR believes the fee increase will do little to impact the positive momentum of the Xbox 360," and that given the service improvements through the year, "it comes as no surprise that Microsoft would eventually increase the price of a Gold subscription by a moderate amount."

I never pay $50 for a year anyways. There are always deals for 12 month cards.

you swear like $10 is going to change your life.
Aug 30, 2010 @ 23:54
it wont, but if you had an xbox 360 since launch you already paid $50 for 5 years. that's $250 and then you'll pay $60 for next year which will be $310. Your xbox live fees couldve bought you a fucking PS3 or Xbox 360 lol.

This 10 dollar increase is bullshit, no point really. They just know they can do it, so they will.

it really looks like microsoft is over the xbox 360. theyre just like fuck it we lost bungie, here is halo reach and gears of war 3 and a bunch of kinect bullshit ttyl working on xbox 720 to launch first again and win ^_^v

I might cop a ps3 and sell my 360 since halo is over. I want to get that new socom but thats far down the road. Plus I hate the ps3 controller compared to xbox.

I don't know how you guys can say PSN is better than LIVE. That's just fan boy talk. I've had every playstation and didn't own the original xbox. I'm currently a 360 user because 95% of the gaming I do is online. Yeah we pay for LIVE but you nigs act as if it cost an arm and a leg. I play MW2 and have to have squad communication. Whenever I played cod4 on PS3 I'd barely run into anyone with a mic, and shit would lag and I'd see "connection interrupted" once every 3-4 games. Interface is so much more user friendly. Inviting and chatting with friends is hella simple. PS3 was a hassle and took forever. Graphic wise, a lot of games are made for the 360 and ported to other consoles. I still want to get my hands on another PS3 to play a couple exclusives. I'm glad Sony is getting the better exclusives now that the PS3 has finally settled in the market.

I've owned a ps3 for about 2 years and have not yet found whats so good about it.
Do people play the same games even after they beat it 5 times or something.
It is an entertainment system with internet, bluray/dvd, psn, music, etc.
But still what the hell is there to do on the damn thing.
It just collects dust.
The 360 has its flaws but is more down and dirty.
Plug and play.

The new 360 controller looks dope...besides it being 64 bucks when it drops -_-....
Aug 31, 2010 @ 16:23
played microsoft kinect today. shit was sickkkkkkkk played a little bowling and the rafting game. its crazy how well it picks up your movements without needing any controller or anything. i was skeptical from seeing videos and stuff but it blew me away when i was playing it. probably gonna buy day 1 unless i get to test out playstation move and like it more. but playing without ANY controller what so ever is very badass
Aug 31, 2010 @ 17:50
Up until that comment I was completely against it, I still probably won't buy it lol but it's good to hear that it's actually impressive.
Aug 31, 2010 @ 20:19
the only issue is it is only good for on rails games as far as we can see.

controller is dope though


When the new MK drops, I'll be using this controller.
Aug 31, 2010 @ 20:51
how does that even make sense? lol go on the internet, watch blu rays, play ps1 games, play the exclusives, play multiplat games, share games with ur friends for free, etc. anything you do on 360 you can do on ps3.

It does all the but just doesn't seem to feel like a true video game system.
Aug 31, 2010 @ 22:52
because when you pay for something it just feels better. or what ever makes you feel better or whatever... i stopped paying for xbl...
Aug 31, 2010 @ 23:19
the new 360 controller looks fucking awesome. i'd be tempted to buy if it weren't for the fact my xbox looks like its on the verge of a breakdown

whats so awesome? the greyed out buttons? the stupid mechanical d pad that unnecessarily raises the price?

they should have just simply switched out the d pad no one wants for one the plus shaped d pad.

i like the colorless buttons though...
Sep 01, 2010 @ 14:00
Its way to overpriced for some grey buttons ....
Sep 01, 2010 @ 14:10
Thats pretty much a slap in the face to Europe hahah

To me it's taking away from the original.
