Vodafone NZ offers Xbox Live Gold/PlayStation Plus to new customers

Vodafone's 'Gamers Choice' promotion gives free one-year Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus subscriptions to new Vodafone Red home broadband customers on 12-month term, 80GB/month or higher plans.

Customers must choose either Xbox Live Gold ($79.95) or PlayStation Plus ($89.95) - in multi-console houses with subscriptions to both, the smart choice is obviously PlayStation Plus as you'll be getting $10 more out of the deal.

The offer may be used to extend an existing subscription for another year, or to fund a new subscription.

Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus subscriptions are required by their respective consoles to access certain online services. Specifics can be found on xbox.com or nz.playstation.com.

"Gaming is a mainstream activity that's enjoyed by many households. No matter what your console preference, Gamers Choice allows you to enjoy the full digital experience of Xbox or PlayStation -- delivered over standard or Ultra Fast broadband -- at no extra cost." Vodafone's consumer director Matt Williams said in a press release.

"This is the only offer of its kind in the market and we're pleased to be able to offer gamers another reason to choose Vodafone."

Today's press-release was likely timed to coincide with the launch of Sony's PlayStation 4, which will be celebrated by media tonight and will launch to the public tomorrow (29 November). Microsoft's Xbox One launched last Friday morning at midnight (22 November).

The offer is available now, and has no set finish date - Vodafone NZ says it is "available for a limited time and while stocks last".
