Xbox Live subscription prices rise today

Today’s the day, kids. Microsoft is officially raising the price of its Xbox Live Gold subscription fees in North America, Canada, Mexico and the UK. Now you get to pay even more for stuff that you can get free elsewhere. It’s the American dream!

In the US, a year’s Xbox Live will cost $59.99, three months will cost $24.99 and a month costs $9.99. In Mexico, a year will command 599 pesos. The UK and Canada get a better deal, with only their monthly subscriptions jumping up to £5.99 and $9.99 CAD respectively. 

Henceforth, these are your new prices starting today. Please take your gruel bowl and thank Microsoft for its benevolence and charity, and don’t you dare ask Mr. Bumble for more!
