For a limited time only, Microsoft have dropped the price of the 12 month gold subscription for Xbox Live.
When people first started noticing the drop, there was speculation as to whether or not the price drop was going to be permanent, however Microsoft have confirmed that the price drop is only going to be available for a limited time and will go for the current US price of $39.99 (roughly R415.00).
At the moment it looks as if the price drop is only valid for US accounts, as the UK price on Xbox.com is still sitting on Â£39.99.
A rep at Microsoft had the following to say regarding the price drop:
“We are currently running a promotion in-dash that gives Silver members a special opportunity to upgrade to the full benefits of Gold membership at a reduced price for a limited time,”
“While there are occasional price promotions offered for our service, we’re confident our 12-month Gold members realize the tremendous entertainment value provided for just over $4 per month.”
