Once in a while, a retailer will confuse a thing or two about games and consoles. But when it’s GameStop, a company specializing in video games, there’s no excuse for confusing the PlayStation 4 and Xbox Live Gold.
Which is exactly what they did in an email to customers, where they suggested what upcoming PlayStation 4 owners need was a 12-month membership to Xbox Live Gold. We might have looked past something like this if Target or Best Buy did it, but GameStop? Come on, guys…
Anyways, as you well know: Xbox Live Gold is for that other console. The PlayStation 4 uses PS Plus subscription, and every PS4 owner will get 30 days for free right out of the box.
