If you own an Xbox console, Microsoft’s Xbox Gold Live subscription is a must, literally, if you want to play multiplayer games. But that doesn’t mean you have to pay a heavy price. Today only Newegg sells 12 months of Xbox Live Gold for $ 50, $ 10 off the regular price, with the payment code 93XSA25. The deal ends just before midnight Pacific Time on Friday night.
The great part of this map is that it is good for all Xbox gamers. If you’ve already subscribed to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate title set, which includes Xbox Live Gold in the package, this card automatically converts to four months of Ultimate.
If all you want is Xbox Live access, that will cover you for a full year. Xbox Live Gold gives you the ability to use Xbox’s online gaming features, as well as access exclusive discounts and even free games.
But if you are using Xbox Live for a console and have a gaming PC with Windows 10, you should really think about Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $ 15 per month, or $ 1 for your first month. This subscription service not only includes Xbox Live Gold, but lets you play a selection of over 100 games for PC and Xbox. Games that are also part of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere program also allow you to track your progress between PCs and consoles. You’ll also be able to stream games to Android phones, PCs, browsers and more with Xbox Cloud Gaming as part of an Ultimate membership.
Whether it’s Xbox Live only or Game Pass Ultimate, today’s deal is good for gamers.
