We've seen a slew of deals lately for Xbox Live Gold membership cards for around $30, all the while the official price from Microsoft has remained $60. Now all that has changed, at least temporarily, as Silver Members upgrading to Gold via the dashboard can pay the low price of $4 a month - or $48 a year.
The official line from Microsoft?
"We are currently running a promotion in-dash that gives Silver members a special opportunity to upgrade to the full benefits of Gold membership at a reduced price for a limited time," said a rep. "While there are occasional price promotions offered for our service, we're confident our 12-month Gold members realize the tremendous entertainment value provided for just over $4 per month."
Having a gold membership is the only way you can play any of the online co-op titles the Xbox 360 has to offer - so if you are still silvering it, well get to it!
