CrunchDeals: Xbox Live Gold for $30

0088222489821_500X500 Walmart is selling 12-month Xbox Live Gold cards for $30. The full retail price when purchased directly from Microsoft is $50.

If you’re still chugging along with the free Silver membership, here’s what upgrading to Gold gets you:

  • Multiplayer games
  • “TrueSkill matchmaking”
  • Parties (not real-life parties)
  • Gamer feedback (vote down jerky players)
  • Netflix (you have to also have a Netflix membership)

Should the service be free? I vote for YES! But Microsoft will never listen to me. And $30 is better than $50, I guess.
