Xbox Live Gold

If you’ve been holding out on renewing that Xbox Live Gold subscription, now might just be the time to strike, as  Gold cards are on sale at at [easyazon-link asin=”B0029LJIFG” locale=”us”]Amazon[/easyazon-link]. A year’s worth of Gold will run you $35.96, or you can get three months for $18.76. Subscriptions normally go for $60 and $25 respectively, so buying now saves you a nice chunk of change – about $24 for a year (or 40 percent) and just over $6 for three months (or 25 percent).

While players can get online with a free Silver subscription, Gold membership is required to utilize most of the service’s basic functions – online multiplayer, group chat, Netflix/Hulu streaming and even Facebook/Twitter apps require paid membership. So what are you waiting for? Go nab yourself a card and start playing!
