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.

Since I'm getting an Xbox 360 next week, I was wondering what everyone's gamertag's are here. So we can all add each other and "pwn" each other in games we all have.
