Xbox Live Subscription Charges

Microsoft Raises the Price on Xbox Live

If you've got an Xbox 360 (and quite a few of you do), you know that it can do a lot more than just play games — an Xbox can be like your own personal media center.

If you are in fact an Xbox lover, it's likely that you've signed up for an Xbox Live account, which lets you download cool arcade games, demos, previews, access multiplayer games to play with friends online, stream Netflix movies and TV, and lots more. But for new and old subscribers alike, using your Xbox to its full potential is about to get a bit more expensive. Find out why after the break.

Starting on Nov. 1, Xbox Live members in Mexico, US, UK, and Canada will begin paying a bit more for their subscriptions. In the US, one-year subscriptions will go up to $60 from $50, while one-month and three-month subscriptions will jump from $8 and $20 to $10 and $25, respectively.
Granted, these are small price jumps, but every little bit counts nowadays when you have games, cable, and paid online content vying for a piece of your entertainment budget. Good news is, if you're already an existing Xbox Live subscriber, you can renew for another 12 months now for $40.

Its worth it... $50 or $60. I always recommend to newbies to pay annually.
