It is clear that Microsoft intends to go all out for its Xbox One launch day; the company’s “Day One” edition of its console with special limited edition controller and achievement token has already sold out at various retailers including Amazon and Best Buy. Now, the company is introducing preorders for a “Day One” edition of Xbox Live Gold.
The new Day One Xbox Live Gold package costs $59.99 and includes a 12 month Live Gold membership along with a copy of Xbox One digital game, Killer Instinct: Round One, and a commemorative gold membership card.
Microsoft’s standard 12 month Gold membership can be picked up for as low as $45 on Amazon, so we aren’t exactly sure if this special “Day One” edition is much of a deal. Either way, the Day One Xbox Live Gold Membership card can be preordered now at Microsoft’s online retail store.
What do you think – is the $15 difference worth the included “free” game?
