Microsoft has revealed some of its pricing plans for the US Xbox Live service, hopefully giving some indication of what it's lined up for European consumers. Renewals will start at $49.99 for a year's subscription, or $5.99 for a month; subs can be topped up either online or with top up cards bought from various stores.
The voice communicator will sell separately for a rather princely $29.99, but new users will also be able to buy an all-in starter kit including bundled games, communicator and one year's subscription for a pretty respectable $69.99. Assuming that Microsoft plays fair with currency conversion, we expect this to translate to either Â£29.99 or Â£34.99 annually in the UK, or Â£3.99 a month.
