Welcome to the official Xbox Live Topic. This topic basically serves to inform you about Xbox Live and allow you to contact fellow GTA Place members through it.

What is Xbox Live?

Xbox Live is an online gaming service for the Xbox/Xbox 360 video game console created and maintained by Microsoft. It has features such as Friends lists, game matchmaking, and video chat, and costs approximately $49.99 USD per year, or £40 in England.

How do I get an account?

To create an Xbox Live account, you need to make an Microsoft/Windows Live Passport. This can be done by going to any website that uses this feature, such as live.xbox.com, clicking the Sign-In button, and clicking Sign-Up. Once you have a Passport, you can create an Xbox Live account.

You should then use the same method on Xbox.com and again click Register now. Choose your gamertag, gamerpic, and motto. These can all be changed later at any time, but changing your gamertag will cost you a fee. You will then link your gamertag to the Live Passport you just created. After that, choose whether you want an Xbox Live Gold (paid) or Silver (free) membership. I recommend getting Silver for now, as it can be upgraded at any time. Finally choose your preferences and favorites and you have your account.

Xbox Live Gold
Xbox Live Gold is the meat and potatoes of the service, and I highly recommend it, as you need it to play any game on Xbox Live against other people. The price, as mentioned above, can be paid in monthly, quarterly, and yearly installments. The monthly installments are approximately $7.99 USD per month, which is about $45 more than the yearly subscription.

A credit card is not required for this. You can simply go to a retailer, such as Best Buy, and then enter the code on the card in your account on Xbox.com.

I don't have XBL anymore, but my gamertag used to be WarningNeo. Once I get it back, I'm changing it to something reminiscant of my old one.

EDIT: And once I get Live back, say goodbye to yer butt in Saint's Row and DOA4.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

Sure! Just let me get a new 360, broadband, and a new DOA4 disc, because mine is scratched to hell.

Can't we just have an "official" Xbox Live thread?

Well, at least you get quality online gaming with plenty of perks. In the US, I heard of some stores giving discounts and bonuses to those who print out their gamercard.

Mines Chris82TheKid, I'll add you through Xbox.com, Chris.

Pinned. I'd like to see TGTAP members interacting outside of the forums. :yup:

BTW I only have Xbox Live silver right now, I still technically have slikdude12592 but I cancelled the renewal. It was a stupid long name for people to remember and I'd rather use my debit card to pay for it than ask my Mom every year for her card number.

Oh and Saint's Row is a GTA clone with eye candy and no gameplay. Seriously lame. The taxi/paramedic/etc...missions are required to continue the storyline, and there's no aircraft whatsoever.

I accepted your friend request ;)

Also -"I'd like to see TGTAP members interacting outside of the forums" - has given me another idea for a topic. Check out The Lounge in a little while. Also if you know someone on the forums who has an xbox get them to this topic ;)

I got a new idea for my new gamertag, because I'm sure not even going to attempt to recover it.

How about Team WnN? And when I do get XBL back, I will be playing Saint's Row, PGR3, DOA4, and Halo 2.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

I heard the online was really buggy, is that true?

No. There are some downsides such as losers quitting just before the game ends, but that really isn't common anymore since we can give them negative feedback and it will be shown publicly. (x out of 5 star rating system for each player)

Overall I like it and if you have the means, I highly recommend picking a 360 up. It is so choice.

BTW Crimson accept my friends request.

I ordered my Xbox 360 with Call of Duty 3 earlier this evening, so hopefully it'll get sent tomorrow, and arrive on thursday, or Friday maybe. Also bought Gears of War and PGR3.

Thing is I won't be able to play it over the weekend as I won't be at home, which sort of sucks, anyway at least I'll be able to pwn you all soon.

Like I said many times before, I have to buy a new 360. (I'm suspecting that those Dead Rising rumors are true.) But after I get a new one and broadband, I will either be pwning or be pwn3d on a regular basis.

BTW, tvg. You only pay 5 bucks a month or 50 bucks a year. It is a pretty sweet deal.
