Well... I have took the first step of many to suspend my subscription. First out the credit card door is the WoW monthly subscription, but I'll end up using game time card instead of recurring credit card charges. Next on the list is the Xbox Live Gold membership as I have upgraded it from original Xbox Live to Xbox360's yet I don't even have an Xbox360 to go with it (though I do want to get on XBLA)... I'm happy with Xbox Live Silver membership when the current subscription runs out in March (note to myself: remember to call Xbox Live customer support to cancel the Gold membership). I will return or get game time card when I have Xbox360 later.

That should be about it for my game subscriptions.

What about you folks? I'm cutting back to save some bucks for much better thing later.

FYI: Bond & Bond and Noel Leeming are selling 12 months Live Gold Subcriptions for $70. Can't go wrong with that.

My Xbox Live Gold membership is cancelled... so in few days time, it should gracefully dropped back down to silver membership. Then I can just use prepaid gamecard IF/WHEN I have Xbox 360 *lol*

James Bond: Heads up. Till March 10th, 12 months Live Gold Membership for $56 at Noel Leeming. A steal.


Hmmm truly is a steal.... I might check it out and get one, though kinda useless when I don't actually have an Xbox360... perhaps that Resident Evil 5 Red Xbox360 elite is a good buy now (anyone can confirm that may be a Jasper?)... though my employment situation is a bit shaky at the moment :-(
