So Microsoft is increasing the price of Xbox Live Gold. Sucks. EarlyGame shows you, where you can still get Xbox Live Gold for cheap. Rocks.
So Microsoft's Xbox Live Gold just became the worst deal in gaming. Yup, that's not an exaggeration either: The price of the service is now double that of PlayStation Plus.
So it all seemed like Microsoft was building up the system for broke people: The Xbox Series S is super affordable and Game Pass is a serious steal. Now they undermine all this by increasing the cost of Xbox Live Gold? What?
From now on, Xbox Live Gold memberships will cost as follows:
- 1 month – $10.99
- 3 months – $29.99
- 6 months – $59.99
Uhm... Microsoft? What you doing, bro? Consider that PlayStation Plus costs $59.99 for 12 months and this is just ridiculous. Xbox Live Gold gives you access to online multiplayer gaming and four free titles a month (games with so-so quality), so this move is very confusing to say the least. Sucks. Except for active subscribers: Your active subscription will not be affected by this price hike. Until it ends that is...
BUT: We know where you can still get Xbox Live Gold for Cheap!
Luckily, many places still have Xbox Live Gold codes stocked. Yes, they will make changes A$AP (get it? Cause... money), but for now, you're still good to buy Xbox Live Gold for the cheap old prices here:
No we're not sponsored by any of these – we're just looking out for your purse. How long will you be able to get Xbox Live Gold for cheap at these retailers? Nobody knows. Is it even worth it? Up to you... the Xbox Games with Gold for February 2021 were just announced, so you can give those a look:
If there's anything in there that floats your boat, go on and spend that coin on Amazon. Other than that, you'll have to bite the bullet soon and drop $60 dollars for a 6 months Xbox Live Gold subscription.
Silver lining: Xbox Game Pass is available for $15 a month and includes EA Play and streaming on every device. Guess we know what basket Microsoft's putting all its eggs in...
