Price of Xbox Live Gold in UK Will Increase Next Month

Microsoft has announced that the price of an Xbox Live Gold membership in the United Kingdom will rise by 25% from May, 2019. On the upside, they also have access to stuff like the Xbox Game Pass which serves as a sort of Netflix for games. This new subscription allows you to pay by the month and pay the same price, with the additional cost of Game Pass. It's called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and shaves the total month-to-month cost of the two subs by $5. A subscription will also net you a discount for games in Xbox Game Pass if you decide you want to buy them outright.

Original story: The price of an Xbox Live Gold subscription will rise in the United Kingdom from next month, Microsoft has advised.

Initially, you could cancel your Xbox Game Pass subscription through the Xbox One, Xbox One X, or Xbox One S - however you signed up - but this is no longer the case today.

Xbox Live Gold allows players to play multiplayer games and offers free monthly games in the Games with Gold program.

An Xbox Live Gold/Xbox Game Pass bundle has always been rumored, but on Friday, well known Microsoft leaker h0X0d posted on Twitter that it was finally happening. Keep in mind Microsoft is working on a Windows update that's able to play Xbox games directly from the online store. According the Thurott, the official reveal could be coming at E3 this June, and news regarding Game Pass on PC could be on the way as well. If you rejoin Xbox Game Pass, you have the option to sign up again from your console, or re-enroll from the subscription screen.
