Microsoft loves to let everyone know when they hit a nice round number of Xbox Live subscribers. Its what they do. With that being said we have now heard that they have reached the 35 million member mark, with a steady increase continuing. While we dont know how many gold vs silver subscribers there are its still a very impressive number. Whats even more impressive? Microsoft has said that they now make more money on transactions (when you spend MS points) vs what they make on selling gold subscriptions. So I guess we should be seeing a Gold discount soon? I fear not.
