Microsoft does not raise Xbox Live Gold subscription prices yet
Microsoft reversed the price increase for Xbox Live Gold subscriptions announced on Friday. The Beslissing geldt ook voor de voorgenomen prijswijzigingen in Nederland, Laat one woordvoerder namens farm zaterdag aan NU.nl weten.
With Xbox Live Gold, players can play online games with each other. Subscribers also receive free games every month.
In Nederland zou de prijs van een subscription system 2 euros stijgen when 8.99 euro per maand. A quarterly subscription would be 4 euros more expensive: 23.99 euros. So that does not continue.
Pricing for longer subscriptions will also remain the same, the Microsoft spokesman said. Six- or twelve-month subscriptions are not sold directly by Xbox, but are available at retailers.
In addition, Microsoft announces that free Xbox games will no longer require an Xbox Live Gold subscription. This adjustment will take place “in the coming months”, but the spokesperson has not yet been able to say exactly when that will happen.
Improvement: An earlier version of this article stated that Microsoft would continue to offer online subscriptions for six months. That is incorrect: subscriptions longer than three months were and still are only offered through retailers.
