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.


Again, the only subscription packages impacted are those mentioned above. For instance, the 12m UK Price? Not affected since it is not mentioned above.


Edit: You can sign in and hit this page on to find out when your Xbox LIVE subscription expires.





    Raising the price of live is just greed they announced they made billions on live they just want more. Thats my point microsoft is using my bandwith to play games i pay 60 bucks a month for my net. I use my net to play games free online for pc and ps3. If i got to pay more they better give us damn dedicated servers enough said. Im just paying microsoft for artifical lock they placed on my xbox. My xbox can connect to the net and play p2p just fine if microsoft stop blocking the connection by requiring i pay. The games lag online because im hosting on my net or someone elses net it makes no since.

    It seems like everyone is out to get a extra $5 or $10 bucks out of the consumer these days, that is fine as long as I keep feeling that I am getting my money’s worth. If someone does a little shopping I’m sure they can get a deal on a year on Xbox live, don’t think I’ve paid full price for one since I got my xbox. So I guess for me it really is going up to $50 and not $60. Last Fm, Twitter and Facebook are nice additions but not really worth Xbox trying to get a extra $10 out of us. What would be nice is if for us gold members we got a discount on games or even some sort of program where the more games,dlc or video you buy gets you some sort of break on Xbox live like a free month or something here and there with a certain level of purchases… Anyway, if you want someone to really hate, hate Sony for not getting out there and competing and making PSN a decent alternative. Then Microsoft couldn’t raise prices like this.

    @ ‘The Bill Payer’ who wrote: “So what about seven year Xbox Live gold members like myself? I think with that dedication to your service I should retain the current price model.”

    If you’ve been paying $50/£40 a year for fresh air for seven years you deserve everything you get.

    I stopped paying for Xbox Live after 2 years, it was ridiculous for Microsoft to think it was acceptable for us to pay for online gaming before Sony offered an identical free alternative, and to continue doing so (and worse, charging even more for it) is down right disgusting. I buy all my multi-format software on PS3 (just in case I want to play online) and refuse to support such despicable money grabbing skullduggery. Any 360 exclusive game I buy, I sacrifice online gaming in that particular product – big loss(!)

    Maybe all of you should have made a stand like I did, and they wouldn’t dare raise the price.

    Pay £40 for a PS3 game and you get the full article, pay £40 for a 360 game and you get features locked out. Lovely to their customers that is.

    Well since Canada as well as others outside the U.S. get less, pay more….and now even more with the increase, put another lost Gold Subscriber up on the wall at Microsoft….won’t be renewing.
