Microsoft publishes US Xbox Live prices
Taster for Europe?
Renewals will start at $49.99 for a year's subscription, or $5.99 for a month; subs can be topped up either online or with top up cards bought from various stores.
The voice communicator will sell separately for a rather princely $29.99, but new users will also be able to buy an all-in starter kit including bundled games, communicator and one year's subscription for a pretty respectable $69.99.
Assuming that Microsoft plays fair with currency conversion, we expect this to translate to either £29.99 or £34.99 annually in the UK, or £3.99 a month. © gamesindustry.biz
