It was not so long ago where rumors circulated that Xbox Live Gold would cease to exist. That rumor could not be further from the truth. Today via news.xbox.com Microsoft has announced a Xbox Live Gold Price increase.
Going forward, new pricing will be 1-month for $10.99, 3-months for $29.99, and 6-months for $59.99, or your local market equivalent. This is a far cry from what most assumed which is Xbox Game Pass being the replacement for Xbox Live Gold. And if you are wondering, yes, you still need Xbox Live Gold to play online while playing free to play titles. Xbox is the only platform with this policy currently.
So, what does this mean for you if you are currently subscribed?
- If you’re an existing online 12-month or 6-month Xbox Live Gold member, there’s no price change. If you choose to renew your membership, it will renew at the current price.
- The price of a 1-month Gold membership is increasing $1 USD and the price of a 3-month membership is increasing $5 USD or the equivalent amount in your local market.
- If you’d like to upgrade your Gold membership to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate your remaining Gold time will also convert directly to Ultimate (up to 36 months). For example, if you have 11 months of Xbox Live Gold now, and you upgrade to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, those 11 months convert to 11 months of Ultimate at no additional cost.
Xbox what is you doing baby? This is not a good move. What are yall’s thoughts on this Xbox Live Gold Price Increase?
