Confirmed: Xbox Live Price Increase Isn't Coming Nov 1

At least, not if you're Australian.

David over at Kotaku has confirmed with Microsoft that the Xbox Live price hikes we covered earlier aren't on the cards for Australian users of the service.

Before you crack out the expensive champagne, though, it's worth pointing out that the price hikes in the US still leave the service cheaper for Americans than the price we pay here. At current exchange rates, the $US59.99 asking price for a 12-month subscription equates to just over $67 Australian. Current Australian Xbox Live pricing for a 12-month subscription? $79.99.
