Price of Xbox Live Gold in UK Will Increase Next Month

Xbox Live Gold UK Membership Fee Set to Increase Next Month

Microsoft has experimented with combo subscriptions in the past, called Xbox All Access. The 12-month Xbox Live Gold price will increase by 10 quid, so expect to pay £49.99 when the changes come about.

Xbox Game Pass gives users access to hundreds of games, such as Sea of Thieves and Minecraft.

The 25% price increase is said to be due to "changing market conditions". The company is planning to launch a new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Pack subscription. Some fans are anxious this may mean that Microsoft plans to segregate the PC and Xbox One Game Pass communities and offerings.

Xbox Game Pass has a monthly fee of $9.99, although right now it has a whopping 90% discount.

Starting May 8, the one-month subscription will increase from £5.99 to £6.99, while the three-month membership will set you back £17.99 instead of £14.99. It wouldn't help much in the scheme of things, but all these expenses do add up, and bringing the two offerings together makes a lot of sense.

Most people who already subscribe to both won't necessarily notice any savings, though. Keep in mind Microsoft is working on a Windows update that's able to play Xbox games directly from the online store.

Microsoft is all about services.

As Microsoft embarks on a cloud-powered gaming future, the tech giant is reportedly planning to bundle Xbox Live Gold with its game subscription service Xbox Game Pass. Unfortunately, this offer was limited, but that shows us that they were trying to test the demand for subscriptions.
