Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter has predicted that the price of Xbox Live Gold subscriptions will soon go up, from $50 to “a 100 bucks” within a couple of years.

He made the remark in an episode of GT’s Bonus Round.

“You can’t hook a guy into Xbox Live Gold if he’s playing on a PC. hat’s the other problem — you really want to hook every gamer who has a 360, you want them to buy all their games on 360, play everything multiplayer, pay you 50 bucks a year so that, in a couple years, it’s a 100 bucks a year.

“And that’s going up, we all know that … it’s a profit deal,” said Pachter.
