In celebration of the Halo Reach: Multiplayer Beta that launched this week, Microsoft has approved a XBOX Live 12-month subscription card price drop.

Future Shop and Best Buy are both selling the cards for $39.99 (Around $3.33 a month). This an awesome deal as these regularly go for $60.

Sure the PS3 offers free online serviceā€¦ but I still believe XBOX Live is far more superior, and at $3.33 a month, its worth the price.

I recommend everyone with an XBOX grab this, even if you still have a few months left in your subscription (you can just add the 12-months to whatever you have left)

Price match at Staples for a even better deal. Sale ends May 6.
