To which is not really surprise, most of the new features on the Xbox One will require a Gold membership. If your expecting a price hike, don’t, it will be the same $60 for the premium membership. You’ll still get your entrainment apps like Netflix and Hulu Plus among others. In addition you’ll get the OneGuide which let’s you switch between Live TV and the console with the HDMI pass-through, Game DVR that records gameplay and the NFL on Xbox. Also know that your current Xbox Live account does transfer over to the Xbox One. The only one that is a bit of a surprise is Skype calling because of its big user base besides the fact that you can chat with four different people in 1080p.
