This morning Xbox gave a lot to talk about by announcing that Xbox LIVE Gold will go up in price in some regions. This set off the alarms of many Mexican consumers, who feared being affected by this. Fortunately, the reality is different and that is something that will not happen.
Through an email, Xbox Mexico confirmed to LEVEL UP that the news of the Xbox LIVE Gold price increase does not apply to Mexico. This means that, for now, the prices of the service to play online will remain the same.
“This announcement does NOT apply to Mexico,” was what Xbox Mexico answered us when we asked if the news this morning will impact our region.

Remember that this does not mean that Xbox LIVE Gold will stay the same price forever. In the past we have seen the company increase the price of the service in response to different factors.
So while it is impossible to predict whether there will be an Xbox LIVE Gold surge in the future, this is not something you should be concerned about right now.
What is the price increase?
As a reminder, Microsoft confirmed this morning that 1, 3, and 6 month Xbox LIVE Gold subscriptions will increase for some regions. Thus, the new prices are as follows:
1 month subscription: $ 10.99 USD 3 month subscription: $ 29.99 USD 6 month subscription: $ 59.99 USD
“The price of a 1-month Gold membership is increasing by $ 1 USD and the price of a 3-month membership is increasing by $ 5 USD or the equivalent amount in your local market (…) You can always visit your account to manage your membership , and prices will not be adjusted until at least 45 days after receiving the messages, “Microsoft explained.
