For many of you, Xbox Live Gold may be taken for granted, but there are many for whom Xbox X/S is the first console from Microsoft. We will tell you everything you need to know about Xbox Live Gold!
The most important first.
What is Xbox Live Gold?
First of all, it is important to mention that Xbox Live Gold should not be confused with Xbox Live. Xbox Live is simply the general online service that Microsoft offers, while you need Xbox Live Gold to play online (just like you need PS+ to play online on a PlayStation).
With Xbox Live Gold you also get discounts and free games. Essentially, that's all the details already summarized. You need Xbox Live Gold if you want to play games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare online with your friends.
Xbox Live Gold Price
You have two options for Xbox Live Gold. Pay €6.99 once a month, or pay €19.99 quarterly, every three months. If you're already completely convinced, simply because you want to play online, you can also get gift cards for Xbox Live Gold for a 12-month membership, for example on Amazon, but also in your nearest electronics store.
If you're not sure, you can also take out a trial subscription and try Xbox Live Gold.
Is Xbox Live Gold Worth it?
If you are someone who values online play, then you will not be able to avoid buying Xbox Live Gold. On the other hand, if you're more focused on playing single player then you might want to think about saving your money.
Another option is getting the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate instead of the Xbox Live Gold. This includes Xbox Live Gold and you will also get new games for free every month - more than with Xbox Live Gold. Additionally, you can play and download all exclusive Xbox titles. The Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs a little more than Xbox Live Gold, but you have much more free games to play.
