Now Amazon's thrown a $20 curveball at the issue by discounting their Xbox 360 Live 12 Month Gold Card plus 1 Month Bonus card, making the new price just $29.97 a 40% markdown. Is Amazon's $30 a deal? Sure. It's 40 points less than you had to pay 48 hours ago, and for online multiplayer aficionados, Xbox Live isn't optional.
