Having been the first major console platform to really prioritize internet multiplayer and a smooth online storefront for gaming, purchasing digital currency cards and joining the subscriptions relevant to Xbox is near essential in today’s age. Xbox Live has grown to become one of the most robust online platforms out there, with the Microsoft Store playing host to thousands of exciting games only available digitally and memberships like Xbox Gold and Game Pass removing even more barriers to them. There’s a better way to do this affordably, though, and that’s through wallet top-ups and Xbox gift cards.
We at Gaming Deals compare prices on a range of physical and digital products, and this includes currency cards relating to Xbox Live. Sure, you can just tie your credit card details with your Xbox account and purchase digital-only games that way, but often you’ll find currency increments like £10, £15 and more for much less than their face value. By using our bespoke technology and comparing digital currency card prices from a wide variety of UK retailers, you can be assured that you’re buying into Xbox’s online eco-system for the very best price.
Unlike most other gaming platforms Xbox offers two different subscriptions in Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass. The latter works almost like the Netflix for games, where paying a monthly fee grants you access to a rotating library of games. Xbox Live Gold, meanwhile, unlocks online play for PVP multiplayer games and treats you to four free games per month. Both memberships can be purchased separately, but combine in what’s called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Xbox games sold on the Microsoft Store regularly go on sale throughout the year, but choosing to purchase them using digital currency cards rather than your bank account could see you get them even cheaper. This is because UK retailers have the option to discount them much farther then their face value. Plus, opting to go this route is ideal for parents worried that younger Xbox players might run rampant with their digital purchases. Currency cards always have a limit.
