Microsoft Reverses Course on Xbox Live Gold Price Hike
After receiving negative feedback from users regarding its planned Xbox Live Gold price hike, which would have doubled the price of a 12-month subscription, Microsoft announced that they are reversing their Xbox Live Gold pricing updates. In addition, Microsoft will soon allow users to enjoy free-to-play titles without the need of Xbox Live Gold.
Today was not great. We always try to do our best for you and today we missed the mark.
We hear you, and we’re reversing our Xbox Live Gold pricing updates.
