gamesindustry.biz logo Microsoft has revealed some of its pricing plans for the US Xbox Live service, hopefully giving some indication of what it's lined up for European consumers.

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
