Microsoft has some bad news for Xbox Live Gold members

There's no question that Xbox Live is the most uniform, streamlined online service for current generation game consoles when it comes to online multiplayer gaming, media streaming, and social interactivity. And for those that want to enjoy all of the fruits that come with such a service, gamers have been willing to work over $50 per year for an Xbox Live Gold membership.

Now, however, Microsoft is moving to the "Dark Side" by raising prices across the board for Xbox Live Gold memberships. According to Microsoft's Major Nelson, who broke the news earlier today, a one-year Xbox Live Gold membership will now cost $59.99 per year. For those that don't wish to commit to a full year of online gaming goodness, three-month membership now cost $24.99 and a one-month membership will set you back $9.99.

For reference, the previous pricing structure was $49.99, $19.99, and $7.99 respectively.
