Xbox have had a busy start to the weekend, but not in the way fans would have liked to have seen. Xbox live gold was set to get a substantial price hike, almost doubling the cost of annual memberships, or upping it by smaller intervals for the shorter term, monthly renewals. The move angered Xbox gamers around the world at the shocking rise in prices, but in a surprise move by Microsoft they have put their hands straight into the air and have said “We messed up”.

The Xbox Live price hike has now officially been reversed and an apology has been issued in a press statement. The statement states that no changes will be made to the current Xbox Live Gold prices and Xbox Live gold will still be able to be converted into Games Pass Ultimate for the remaining months of your subscription. Additionally, Free to Play Games will no longer require Xbox Live Gold to use online features. Xbox has also stated that more updates will be coming for Xbox Live in the coming months.
