Someone wasn’t thinking well at Microsoft. In the span of hours, they increased the price of Xbox Live to nearly double, and then came back down again, and made the free games truly free. Their backpedaling was quick and impressive, unlike many companies that like to double-down on their stupid decisions. It’ll be interesting to see if they creep the price up instead… so we’ll be watching in the coming months.

Microsoft won’t raise the price of Xbox Live, and it’s adding free multiplayer for free-to-play games like ‘Fortnite.’
