360 fans got an interesting surprise this morning. Microsoft announced their intentions to increase the monthly costs of their Xbox Live services. The change is set to begin November 1st 2010 and will effect all price plans in North America and the UK. Microsoft has been adding new features and content to Xbox Live since it's initial release.

However gamers will still have a chance to retain the original savings plan if they act fast. You can currently purchase a year subscription at the low, low cost of $39.99.

Head over to Xbox.com to take advantage of the savings before it's too late.
