Microsoft has today announced that, as of November 1, 2010, it will be raising the price of Xbox Live subscriptions in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom.

In the United States, twelve months of Xbox Live Gold will now cost $59.99 instead of $49.99. A three-month subscription will cost $24.99 instead of $19.99, while one month will cost $9.99 as opposed to $7.99. In the UK, a month will cost 5.99GPB, in Canada it'll be $9.99CAD and in Mexico, twelve months is listed at 599 Pesos.

There's been no word on twelve-month subscriptions for the UK yet. We'll update if there's any more on regional pricing changes.

So there you have it. Xbox Live now costs more. I'd comment on this, but I have a load of cheap subscriptions to go stock up on.

Aren't they offering the next year at $39 or something right now as a "Thank You"?

http://www.destructoid.com/xbox-360-d-pad-redesign-confirmed-182842.phtml

t was rumored yesterday that Microsoft was working on an overhauled Xbox 360 with a new D-Pad, and now the company has confirmed that yes, the ratty little squirt of plastic shite that we currently have (in my opinion) is getting a bit of an improvement. Only slightly, though.

"The Xbox 360 Wireless Controller with Play & Charge Kit -- with Transforming D-pad will be available beginning early 2011 in the UK," a spokesman told CVG.

When the D-Pad is rotated 90 degrees, it will raise by roughly a quarter-of-an-inch, a design that will apparently help fighting fans pull of their combos with a greater degree of ease. Who knows? It might even mean that when you press "up" on the thing, it'll actually mean "up" and not "right" or "left" or "I can't be bothered to work properly."

So there you are. A new D-Pad for a new America.
