March 5, 2013, I went to the xbox website and they're selling live (1yr) for 20 dollars cheaper. I'd recommend going there and checking it out. Not sure how long this great deal will last. But I'm assuming they're doing this because the release of the new xbox in December.
What's the difference between the physical card and the online code? I have a 9 year old that wants to play live with several of his friends who have the xbox live. Do I purchase the card? Can it be used the same way as purchasing an online code? Are there differences to the subscriptions that I should be checking for? Thanks, Lisa
If you have time to spare, just buy the cards. In fact, I'd recommend buying them in bulk if you have the cash to spare. I can't imagine Xbox's NEXTGEN console will just forfeit accounts that already have gold subscriptions. I'm about to buy 3 of them and enter them all. 3 years of XBL for $120 ... Vs buying the online/from microsoft at $60 .. That's a year free.
Anyone without a GOLD Subscription can sign up for 2 months for $2 and then rinse and repeat when the 2 months are up an unlimited # of times. Just make sure to TURN OFF Auto Renewal. This amounts to $12 a year for Xbox LIVE. The proper xbox.com link can be found using GOOGLE.
