    Microsoft XBox Live! Gold Subscription Price Increase Announced.

    MS just announced this.

    As of November 1, 2010 we are increasing the price of an Xbox LIVE for some members. This price increase only affects Xbox LIVE Members in Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom or the United States.

    US
    Current
    1M Gold: $7.99
    3M Gold: $19.99
    12M Gold: $49.99
    Starting Nov 1, 2010
    1M Gold: $9.99
    3M Gold: $24.99
    12M Gold: $59.99
    UK
    Current
    1M Gold: 4.99 GBP
    Starting Nov 1, 2010
    1M Gold: 5.99 GBP
    Canada
    Current
    1M Gold: $8.99 CAD
    Starting Nov 1, 2010
    1M Gold: $9.99 CAD
    Mexico
    Current
    12M Gold: 499 Pesos
    Starting Nov 1, 2010
    12M Gold: 599 Pesos

    Unless listed above, there is no change in any other subscription packages.
    What I'm going to recommend doing; is to stockpile a couple of the 12 month Xbox Live subscription cards found at retailers and online vendors. Because not only are they being sold for 39.99 USD in most places. But if you buy through an online vendor, you're usually not paying taxes either. Renewing directly through MS automatically forces you to pay full retail & sales tax.

    And XBL's integration is better.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    Dont get me wrong, XBL is a shitload nicer than PSN, but the main reason is that XBL's interface is clean and easy to use, whereas PSN's is cluttered as hell. The 360 also has (imo, of course) much better games.

    However, you have to admit that the PSN is a much, much nicer system than the 360. Wireless? Free. Hard drive? Free, and upgradeable. The controller cables are plain old USB-MiniUSB as opposed to the 360's proprietary ones. Oh, and the PS3 is a Blu-Ray player. AND, of course, PSN is free.

    The M$ product charges you for everything. The wireless adapter is $80, XBL is now $60/year, the hard drives are a titanic rip-off for what they are and they're completely proprietary, and oh, it's not a Blu-Ray player.

    Again, XBL is nicer, and the games are better, but it's a shame because otherwise the PS3 completely smokes it all across the board.
