Microsoft Finally Adds Multiple Live Account Price Break
Now that Microsoft has decided to create the next Nintendo Wii and continues to chase the elusive crossover or casual gamer, it finally decided to offer an option for multiple Xbox Live! gold accounts at a reduced price.
Beginning this fall (and in no way to support requirements in upcoming Kinect games I’m sure) Microsoft is offering a “Live family pack“. The new pricing includes 4 Xbox live! gold accounts for the price of 2 – roughly $100. Linked accounts also share a billfold and allow gifting of MS points for purchases along with parental control features. This means only the primary account can make purchases without help BTW.
Not a bad idea, just about four years too late for a service that should arguably be free to begin with.
