So Microsoft jacked up the XBOX LIVE subscriptions costs you say? Well, yes. On November 1st in the US, Canada, and Mexico, the 1-month charge is increasing to $9.99 from $7.99, three months will cost $24.99 from $19.99 while the yearly plan is increasing to $59.99 from $49.99. Yes, it sucks, and it nags me because I was going to buy an Xbox 360 S (I still am, btw).
Reasons for the price increase could be that Windows Phone 7 phones will have integration with your Xbox 360 and LIVE, as well as cross-platform gaming and a ton of other “nice” stuff.
