Silver Membership to be renamed Free Membership on Xbox Live

Admittedly the title Silver Membership is a little bit cheeky for Xbox Live, seeing as it doesn’t let you play games online. While you can still download demos, you’re really not getting the main feature, which you might think would be included in any kind of package. Smart move by Micrsoft to rename it Free Membership then; XBL Community Manager Graeme Boyd revealed the change on his twitter.

Boyd said: “Just been told that ‘Xbox LIVE Silver Membership’ will now officially be called ‘Xbox LIVE Free Membership’. The times they are a-changin…”

We’re not exactly sure when the change will happen but it will be pretty immediate by the sound of things.
