If you have an Xbox One or even an Xbox 360 and have been waiting for a great reason to purchase an Xbox Live Gold subscription, there’s probably not going to be a better time than right now to get one. Microsoft have announced that they’re cutting the price of the subscription by $20 – in other words, the price has been slashed from $60 a year to $40 a year. Hey, anytime you can get something with a third of the price knocked off, it’s got to be a good deal, right?

Xbox Live Gold Gets A Price Cut

So, why would anyone want an Xbox Live Gold membership? Well, for starters, everyone knows it’s a heck of a lot more fun to play certain games with other people, and that’s exactly what the membership lets you do – game it up with all kinds of other gamers from around the globe. (Would you rather play Halo by yourself or with others just as good and/or better than you are? It’s a rhetorical question). It also gives you access to free games and discounts on other games found in the Xbox Store.

I honestly can’t tell you how long this price cut will last; it might be a permanent change, or the price might go back up tomorrow. So if you want to get in on it while the price is at its low point, you can do so here. If you’re still on the fence, I’m not sure what else will help you land on either side.
