Microsoft announces US Xbox Live pricing

Dey wants your dollaz

Microsoft has revealed some of its plans for the US operation of the Xbox Live service, hopefully giving us some idea of what they have lined up for us over here. The pricing structure for renewals will start at $49.99 for a year's subscription, and $5.99 for a month's, and subs can be topped up either online or with top up cards bought from various stores. The voice communicator will sell separately for a rather princely $29.99, but new users will also be able to buy an all-in starter kit including bundled games, communicator and one year's subscription for a pretty respectable $69.99.
