] ‘We messed up today and you were right to let us know.

Connecting and playing with friends is a vital part of gaming and we failed to meet the expectations of players who count on it every day.

] New and existing members can continue to enjoy Xbox Live Gold for the same prices they pay today.

] ‘Periodically, we assess the value and pricing of our services to reflect changes in regional marketplaces and to continue to invest in the Xbox community; we’ll be making price adjustments for Xbox Live Gold in select markets.

In many markets, the price of Xbox Live Gold has not changed for years and in some markets, it hasn’t changed for over 10 years.

] Xbox users who want to upgrade from Xbox Live Gold to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (which includes Gold and Game Pass), the remaining Gold time will covert to Ultimate.

‘For example, if you have 11 months of Xbox Live Gold now, and you upgrade to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, those 11 months convert to 11 months of Ultimate at no additional cost,’ Microsoft said.
