Xbox Live is not getting a price increase, stop the rumors.
Here we go again.
Sometime during the week, a rumor broke out entitled, Microsoft to further monetize Xbox Live this holiday. Instantly people jumped to the worst case scenario saying, Microsoft is increasing the price of Xbox Live! Microsoft is not going to increase the price of Xbox Live.
First off, the original story is simply a rumor. Evidence to support this rumor is extremely vague. We have a report that says “Developed strategy to further monetize Xbox LIVE subscriber base that will be implemented for holiday 2012.” Where in that statement does it say anything about Microsoft increasing the price of Xbox Live?
