new Xbox One update

Xbox users that have yet to upgrade will be able to get Xbox Live Gold for a month for the low-low price of a single dollar, according to a limited-time offer from Microsoft that they posted just today.

Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Live Silver are the two different tiers of the Xbox Live program, each with a different group of functions.

While Xbox Live Silver just allows you to access the Xbox Live marketplace, allowing you to download demos and trailers, buy games online, and buy or rent movies. However, Xbox Live Gold allows you to access the rest of the online features of the Xbox, allowing you to play online with friends in addition to everything you can do in Silver.

Members of Xbox Live Gold also get access to Microsoft’s “Games With Gold” program, where twice a month Microsoft allows two different games for players to download for free, with two different sets of games on the Xbox One and the Xbox 360.

For instance, this month’s Games With Gold games are Lords of the Fallen, Styx: Master of Shadows, and Sherlock Holmes: Crime and Punishments for the Xbox One, and Supreme Commander 2 and Borderlands for the Xbox 360.

Other games that had previously been part of the program were Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, Tomb Raider 2013, Killer Instinct, Dark Dreams Don’t Die, Halo: Reach, Rare Replay, Darksiders 2, Gears of War Judgement, and Terraria.

The games available normally switch around the middle of the month. Gamers with Xbox Live Gold also have the ability to get special discounts on highly popular games through the Deals With Gold program, which this month is nearly all Lego games with Lego Marvel Avengers, Lego The Hobbit, Lego Jurassic World, and the Lego Movie Videogame.

If any of this sounds good to any of our readers that still only have Xbox Live Silver, you can go and try out the Gold version of Xbox Live for yourself. It’s only a dollar, what do you have to lose?
