Via Game Informer, Microsoft finally got around to revealing the price of what their Games for Windows version of Xbox Live would cost you. Here are the penny-pinching details:

While Microsoft was quite quiet about Live for Windows Vista, today during a press event prior to the Game Developers Conference the company revealed to Game Informer Online the exact pricing structure for the service. Live for Windows Vista will actually be the same exact price for Vista as it is for the Xbox 360.  Just like with the Xbox 360 there will be a free Silver package as well as a Gold package which retails for $49.99 for a year subscription, $7.99 for one month, and $19.99 for three months.

Good news for gamers who already have an Xbox Live Gold Membership – you’ve already subscribed. Your Live membership works on the Xbox, Xbox 360, and Live for Windows. Your gamer tag and achievements will be used across both Xbox and Vista PCs. Upcoming Vista games like Halo 2 and some exclusive Vista casual games will include achievements and will be able to add to your gamer score.

It's pretty much what we all expected: Same price as Xbox Live on the console and current Gold members would already be allowed into the Vista club. Phew, Microsoft came out clean on that one. Had they charged a penny more for current Gold members, I would have done something very illegal to them for y'all.
