Xbox LIVE 3-Month Gold Membership $12.99
The world of gaming on the Xbox 360 has many layers, and while it is true that you can have loads of fun gaming with the free Silver Level of Xbox LIVE Membership, your Xbox will really shine when you start playing with friends online, and taking advantage of the online modes for all of your games -- but to do that you need to be a Gold LIVE Member!
With the economy being what it is, the Elves over at LIVE thought that you might like a break on the subscription fees for Xbox LIVE Gold Membership, so they created the Holiday 2011 3-Month Xbox LIVE Gold Subscription Card -- available from participating retailers for only $12.99 -- a savings of almost 50% off the regular $24.99 three month subscription cost!
As a Gold Member of Xbox LIVE you not only get to play games with your friends and take advantage of the online modes in most games, but you also get loads of online multiplayer, movies, TV shows, and more!
