Microsoft raising Xbox Live subscription prices

Microsoft has today announced that, as of November 1, 2010, it will be raising the price of Xbox Live subscriptions in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom. 

In the United States, twelve months of Xbox Live Gold will now cost $59.99 instead of $49.99. A three-month subscription will cost $24.99 instead of $19.99, while one month will cost $9.99 as opposed to $7.99. In the UK, a month will cost 5.99GPB, in Canada it’ll be $9.99CAD and in Mexico, twelve months is listed at 599 Pesos. 

There’s been no word on twelve-month subscriptions for the UK yet. We’ll update if there’s any more on regional pricing changes.

So there you have it. Xbox Live now costs more. I’d comment on this, but I have a load of cheap subscriptions to go stock up on.
