X-BOX LIVE raising their subscription prices.
Yes, I just received an email from X-BOX informing me that they are increasing subscription prices for Gold Level membership to their X-BOX live subscription by $10.00. Now it will be $60.00 per year rather than $50.00 per year.
So it will be roughly $5.00 a month now starting in November. Not a huge hike up but still, more money.
I read further into this and was informed of some new changes and upgrades such as: ESPN will be streaming live and on demand content and highlights. So from what X-BOX says you can watch just about any game you want to. Sounds great if you love college sports. In addition, a couple of Kinect features will be added such as video and interaction with your friends online. The last upgrade they mentioned was Hulu Plus, which I am not sure what that means yet, but hopefully it means all access pass to tons of shows through Hulu.
In all, some cool features will be added that I will use and X-BOX still has the best online networking around. Plus when Halo Reach and Call of Duty Black Ops are released it will be all worth it.
Tell me what you think of the price increase.
