Since most people refrained from spending money on a personal past time this holiday season to buy presents for other people, Amazon.com is now offering 13 months of Gold service for around $30.
Gold service means you can play games the day it’s put up, play all of your multiplayer-enabled games online, and use voice/video chat. Those capabilities would normally run you $50.
With that membership, games are not the only entertainment you get. You will also get access to music videos, movies and tons of TV shows, such as “The Office” and “The O.C.”
