I am surprised they didn't go with an achievement instead of the card.

Say someone already has Gold, does that count as" day one"?

n4rc1011d ago

Think you can just extend for another year to gain the extras..

My gold auto renews in December.. May bypass that and add on another year early

kreate1011d ago

I don't think so..
I'm gold member and when I clicked on that ad on the dashboard.

It took me to a payment page costing me $59.99

So you gotta pre-order XBL Gold even if you already ha e gold to get the benefits? wow

TeaRunner1010d ago

They already confirmed that your Gold membership will carry over to xbox one. Guessing if you preorder then your subscription would just add 12 months to whatever you got left.

Wow reading the title I was thinking now Microsoft is at least competing. But after reading the details I find out I'm not getting a deal? Just a full priced card with a day one decal on it? NO THANKS not that I would EVER go back to Microsoft after they tried to stab me in the back, by stealing my ownership rights from me. But I was hopping it would put pressure on Sony to keep doing great. Some pressure, all Sony has to do to match that sale a system alone with only, word DAY ONE on the plus card (which is way better than gold, free games!).

How about instead they focus on allocating more hardware for pre-order, limited supplies will next give them a strong foothold upon launch against a Sony machine that is already being made available for hungry consumers after being sold out a few times.

I like the new card... But its silver :S wheres my gold?

xReDeMpTiOnx1011d ago

That's kind of nice just as an extra benefit for getting live day one.

Insomnia_841011d ago

What's the difference between Xbox Live Gold and Day One Edition Xbox Live Gold? The silver card?

creatchee1011d ago

Shadow Jago on the preorder.

admiralvic1010d ago

Not like M$ doesn't have cards now that give you a free game or anything. You're pretty much preordering it for a character and special card, which I guess is a plus, but nothing I would be excited over.

NegativeCreepWA1011d ago

But what if I already have Live?

eezo1011d ago

Your current Gold Memberships will carry over just fine as confirmed by Major Nelson Here: http://www.reddit.com/r/xbo...

OrangePowerz1011d ago

I guess his question is if he will also get the stuff as existing Gold member or not.

brich2331011d ago

It will add 12 more months to your live subscription. i dont think you will need this card since i dont see any benefits.

NegativeCreepWA1011d ago

I looked it up.

If you plan on buying KI, you should just get this, you get a year of gold plus the game. A pretty good deal actually.

Though what's the point of the card, does it show up on your gamercard or something?

McScroggz1011d ago

I guess this is cool, but current Xbox Live Gold carries over from Xbox 360 correct?
