Gamers can get their hands on one-year subscriptions to Xbox Live Gold for a reduced price right now over on Amazon and Newegg. Prices have been marked down by 40 percent from $59.99 to $35.99 USD. The barrier of entry for three-month membership has also fallen: Amazon has trimmed the price point for one-fourth of a year down to $19.16, while New Egg is asking for a scant bit more at $19.99. (Three-month cards normally retail for $24.99.)

As Joystiq points out, the one-year sale price on New Egg is limited to five cards per customer.

Non XBLA PSA: Halo Anniversary for USD $30

Update: While the NewEgg deal says expired, it is still valid. Also, Amazon is offering a similar deal $40 for Halo Anniversary with $10 Amazon gift card.

It's not exactly XBLA news, but Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary will be out November 15. If you're willing to wait a few days for shipping has a preorder for USD $30 (normally $40). When you consider that the multiplayer map pack alone will likely be 1200 MSP when it gets released to everyone it's a great value. We also checked with GameStop. They'll be taking in trades on Anniversary for USD $18 initially, meaning that if you just wanted the map pack you'll have picked it up for roughly 960 MSP. It's quite the deal, and unlike so many console bundles, this deal isn't a wallet breaker. We highly suggest picking it up, especially if you've never played through the original Halo.
