That is the current retail price of 12 months of Xbox LIVE service. Most people sign up, then just let the account auto-renew every year. Frugal Xbox 360 gamers have been taking advantage of the latest barrage of deals on the 12+1 month Xbox LIVE card deals that have kicked off the new year.
With that being said, given the fact that both Sony and Nintendo offer their online services for free, the pressure is on Microsoft to continue to innovate and offer a reason for gamers to continue to pony up on their annual subscriptions.
What do you think?
Is a price drop or free Xbox LIVE gold subscription coming this generation?"
