I don’t know about you guys, but winter is already shaping up to be a pain in the ass – a pain so cold and snowy that all I want to do is hunker down and play some Xbox all weekend, every weekend.
Those of you who have been reading this site for a while might recall my disdain for having to pay $50/year for Xbox Live service. I’ve tried to make the case that it should either be free or it should cost $20 per year for a non-existent “Silver” membership. Some of you have agreed, some of you have pointed out that it’s a service worth paying for, and a few of you told me to quit being a baby.
Whatever your stance in this issue, let’s all agree to disagree and look lovingly to Amazon.com, where a twelve-month (plus one bonus month) membership to Xbox Live Gold is $29.97. I’m not sure how long this deal will be around, but if you’ve been waiting to pull the trigger or you need to re-up soon, this is probably the best deal around.
