(CMR) Xbox users worried about a Live Gold price increase announced by Microsoft Friday can relax as the company has decided to let prices remain the same.
Xbox posted on its website Friday night that it messed up when it indicated a price increase.
The company had announced earlier the cost for a yearly subscription to the service, which is required to play games online on Xbox consoles, would have doubled to $120 for many users.
Xbox also announced that it would be working to change its free-to-play gaming subscription system in the coming months. The company said with these changes, players will no longer need an Xbox Live Gold membership to play those games.
This would mean Xbox Live would be in line with Sony and Nintendo’s online services by dropping the subscription requirement for free-to-play games such as Fortnite.
