XBOX FAMILY GOLD Discontinued!!!???

#1TightNinjaPosted 8/9/2013 2:34:38 PM
I received an email today saying all accounts under the family plan will convert to individual memberships.


I have 4 Xbox live gamer tags in my family account that we pay $99 a year for. As of August 27 it will cost $240 (individual memberships are $60 correct?)

Microsoft is screwing us before the Xbone is officially out

They'll probably just say to buy an Xbox One, even though people could be happy with just an Xbox 360.

If I read the news right today. Just cancel them all but one. Only one for 60$ will be enough for every GT on the same machine. At least on the X1.

We had a family plan where different family members lived in different cities (my brother and his kid)

They are doing this because you dont need it anymore! All accounts on the console will have access to live as long as ONE account has it. Its all over the news today, but im posting this just incase this isnt a troll topic

Someone from Microsoft should confirm whether or not that applies to both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One or just Xbox One.

Polygon article


"Unfortunately, the Home Gold service won't be available to Xbox 360 owners and there are no plans to bring back the Family Pack. " We'll continue to evaluate for what we're going to do on the 360 but that's an Xbox One feature right now," Whitten said.
