Xbox Live Price Increase in Six Territories

Are you affected?

Microsoft has announced that the price of Xbox Live is going to be increasing in six countries. The reasoning behind the price jump is that they are making adjustments based on currency inflation.

The countries being affected by this news are Austria, Hungary, Israel, South Africa, Sweden and Turkey.

Gameinformer, who got in contact with Microsoft, managed to get a reply via Email and it read as follows:

“We occasionally update pricing in a given market to provide a balance of service and value, and in some instances, meet currency fluctuations within the region, and will be adjusting the price of Xbox Live Gold subscription in a small number of markets on June 20, 2016. We do so always keeping in mind that our goal is to offer our members the premium gaming and entertainment service at a fair price.”

 

We will keep you updated should any more countries be announced as part of the price increase.
