    Thumbs down Xbox Live Price to go up starting November 1st, 2010.

    I got this e-mail... gonna copy and paste it if you haven't read it yet.

    Thank you for being a valued member of Xbox LIVE Gold. We hope you are enjoying the many exciting and exclusive features that are included in your membership. We wanted to let you know about an upcoming price increase for your Xbox LIVE Gold subscription and how you can lock in your current price to continue enjoying everything you've come to love about Xbox LIVE, plus all the upcoming additions including ESPN and Hulu Plus.
    Over the past seven years, Xbox LIVE has evolved from an online gaming platform to an all-in-one gaming and entertainment service. As an Xbox LIVE Gold member, you can not only play blockbuster games, such as Halo: Reach with your friends online, you can also stream movies from Netflix* and music from Last.fm right to your TV. You can even connect with friends near and far on Facebook® and Twitter™. Plus, you also enjoy exclusive discounts and early access to game demos.
    And we aren't even close to being done. This holiday, Xbox LIVE is adding new Gold features, including ESPN and Video Kinect, with Hulu Plus coming on Xbox LIVE in 2011.
    • With ESPN on Xbox LIVE, you can stream and watch over 3,500 live and on-demand sporting events plus highlights.*
    • Video Kinect allows you to chat with family and friends on the big screen, right from the comfort of your living room—no headset or controller required.*
    • With Hulu Plus on Xbox LIVE you will be able to enjoy a customized Hulu Plus experience that will include Kinect navigation and Xbox LIVE Parties*
    Besides launching the new features and titles, we will also be increasing the price of Gold membership on November 1, 2010. The new prices are as follows:

    Old Price New Price
    1-Month Gold Subscription $7.99 $9.99
    3-Month Gold Subscription $19.99 $24.99
    12-Month Gold Subscription $49.99 $59.99


    At only $5 per month, our 12-month offer continues to be your best value. And, because you are a loyal member, we want to give you the opportunity to lock in your current price with an additional discount. Click here or log on to Xbox LIVE from your console to review and take advantage of these limited time offers.


    We hope that you will continue to enjoy all the great gaming, entertainment, and social experiences that Xbox LIVE has to bring today—and in the future.
    Sincerely,
    The Xbox LIVE Team
    Thoughts? I think my subscription dies in December... I should quickly buy another 12 month thing at Amazon/Ebay for 30-35 bucks before it goes up. >_<

    It sucks that they're raising it. What if you don't want ESPN, Hulu Plus, or Kinect video stuff? Seems like we have no choice.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    LOL. That sounds about right. People will pay whatever price they hike it up to be. I'm not surprised by this. It's a shame but what can you do? I guess not pay or get a PS3. Thanks TC.

    As an Xbox LIVE Gold member, you can not only play blockbuster games, such as Halo: Reach with your friends online,
    Wait, does that mean you have to pay a certain amount to play certain games online? If so, that's ridiculous.

    I do not mind the increase. It is still a great value.

    Keep your 360 in open surroundings and you should be good oh and pray to 360 gods for not needing your system as an early sacrifice. Hardware I like the wireless mic if I remember to charge it lol and maybe one of those battery chargers so you don't run through batteries so much.

    Games depends on your choice of poison. Fallout series, Dead Rising series, Of course NHL 11 and more

    I just renewed in May, so I'll hold off, but Walmart always seems to have the 13 month cards, so that's where I usually get my renewal at.
