Brits to get off lightly when Xbox Live prices rise

New tariffs from November

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Some British Xbox Live Gold users will be paying more for their online gaming pleasure from 1 November onwards.

On that date, the price of one month's Gold access will rise from £5 to £6. Neither the three-month nor the annual price will go up, Microsoft pledged.

Actually, Brits have fared fairly well. US-based users will not only pay more for a month's access - rising from $8 to $10 - but the other packages are going up too: three month's access will jump from $20 to $25, while a year's access will cost $60, up from $50.

Unsurprisingly, Microsoft suggested all subscribers should buy more access pronto, before the price rise. ®
