Xbox Live users should be on alert about a major Xbox One change coming into effect soon which will impact their access to free games.
Xbox Live Gold offers plenty of value for money, with two Xbox One and two Xbox 360 free game downloads available each and every month.
Xbox One fans don’t even need to own a 360 to play those titles thanks to the backwards compatibility support on Microsoft’s latest console.
But those wishing to continue being members of Xbox Live Gold and getting free Xbox One games need to be aware of one major thing.
Soon the price of being an Xbox Live Gold member will be increasing in the UK.
From May 8 the price of a 12 month Xbox Live Gold membership will rise from £39.99 to £49.99 in the UK.
If your Xbox Live Gold membership is expiring soon then now’s the perfect time to renew before the price rise kicks in.
