Xbox Live pricing increasing November 1st

Boo I say. Major Nelson has given word that pricing for Xbox Live is increasing in a few areas.  In the US, you're seeing a $2 increase for one month, $5 increase for 3 months, and a $10 increase for 12 months.

I'm not one that ever wants to see pricing increases in subscriptions but it's happening next month. It's not the double increase that we saw Michael Pachter talk about, but it's still taking some more money out of your pocket. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy all the services that Xbox Live has to offer but I'm seeing the free online gaming I do on the PC and the PS3 and I'm starting to get disappointed in the amount I have to pay to play online with my friends on the 360.

Is the price increase starting to get to you or do you think it's still well worth it for the service?
