    Hi folks,

    My son is getting an XBone S for Christmas and, until this weekend, would've been quite happy without Gold. Now his mate has moved closer (into a better area for broadband) and now it's life or death to be able to play with him online. Given that I missed the £25 Black Friday deal, I was wondering whether the price is likely to change around Christmas?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    £34 Less 5% Facebook Discount on CD Keys at the moment.
    Sometimes drops to £29ish but not very often.

    I'd say the usual price is about £29 - £30 these days which it often hits on cdkeys or ebay. Hard to say if it'l hit a £25 sale again. That was a one off deal apart from the odd price glitch here and there. It rarely seems to go under £29 these days.

    OK, cheers folks. It's annoying that I saw the £25 offer come up and thought "No point in that, he doesn't bother with online play."

    When I fired up my One S after picking it up in the Black Friday sales I was offered a month of gold for £1 on the dashboard/homepage, am sure this is a usual thing to get people trying it out.

    That might keep your lad going over the Xmas period and you can continue to shop around for a better deal although like has been said you won't get it for much less than £30.

    I only got my XBOX 360 up and running around Christmas and benefitted from the £1 for 1 month offer. There was an offer on my homescreen, which in hindsight I should have taken up, but it's now lapsed. I hope I get another decent offer shortly!

    Do people really quibble over a fiver for a years subscription? Really, REALLY? :rolleyes:

    1.3 pence per day, and you want to hold out for a better deal? Wow!

    In the time it took you to post that you could have changed it to annual and saved yourself £20 a year.

    That's not for everyone though. As above, my Gold expired recently and I have had no offers since.
