    Necessity of life if you own a 360

    Posted
    TheSpartan117

    This is a must have if you own a 360. Xbox live lets you set up what is the gamer equivalent of facebook or myspace. You have friends lists and an inbox. You invite or get invited to games, which exist int he pregame lobby. This is similar to chat rooms or IM for those who haven't tried it yet. In Halo 3 for example, you get your group together and then you enter a game once the lobby is ready. You can chat and bring up to 3 guests with you, but guests can't go into ranked games. You can choose to stay with a group of favorites and track buddies online so you can try to keep gaming with people you know or try making new friends. I won't lie, sometimes you encounter cheaters or people who just make the game the opposite of fun, but there are built in measures to make sure they won't hassle you and it's really a minor convenience. This is worth the price and it's easy to do. Two drawbacks, only the account owner's profile can use the headset, guests have to get thier own account or simply not communicate. The other, for a whole 12 month subscription you'd figure a nice little bonus would be maybe 100 xbox points, or 1 free theme download. Granted there are some freebies and some cheap things on the marketplace, but a little bonus makes a good buy a 'Best Buy.' Regardless, still a good choice and you should not go without it.

    A MUST have for any gamer.

    Posted
    MAC22

    At first I was reluctant to buy the Xbox live gold membership. After all how much could I really be missing. The answer...A LOT! A games replay value goes through the roof with the ability to play in an online multiplayer match. You also get access to exclusive content on Xbox live, such as contests, gamer pics and themes, and more. All of this is in addition to what you already get with the free Xbox live silver membership. The ability to download additional game content, movies, tv shows, game demos, and more make this a must have. The bottom line is that while it might seem expensive, it is really a small price to pay for so much content. As long as you want to play agaist other gamers from all over the world and increase the replay value of almost all of your games, this is a must have.

    Awesome Service

    Posted
    Bill4RockBand

    A lot of people complain about the price of Xbox LIVE, but when you buy it a year at a time, it's only $50 for a year, or about $4 a month. That is not a bad price AT ALL for a great online service. You're paying for online matchmaking, leaderboards, messaging, and more. The only downside here is that it isn't completely free, but the small price is worth it for the great features. However, if you don't play games online, you can skip this, as everything else about Xbox Live, including the ability to download the awesome Xbox Live Arcade games, are available with the free Silver level account. Bottom line: Like to play games online? You need this.

    XBOX LIVE!!!!

    SmartyMarty

    Alright, I know you review readers have been reading alot of good reviews for this product, but I just wanted to add my own perspective to it. I'm a faithful bestbuy customer and a constant gamer, during my free time, and boy oh boy...bestbuy had another xbox live (12 month + 1 month) sale for only $40! This product is so easy to use and so cheap, for the worth of it. If you think about it, $40 for 12 months is a better bargain than paying $8 every single month or paying $20 bucks every 3 months. And hey, they even throw in an extra 1 month of xbox live gold for you. Can't beat the bargains man! Thanks Bestbuy!

    MUST BUY!

    Yankeez

    I've had Xbox Live for about 2 months now. Let me tell you it is great! It's so fun to use. My parents bought me the card from bestbuy as a reward for good grades and let me tell you it was worth the studying etc. Games like Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4. Even Guitar Hero 3 is so fun. You can talk to the person your playing with around the world! Yes it is worth it buying the 12 month card it saves you more money. But make sure when you buy this you should have games that you will have fun with people around the world. Like Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4 and Guitar Hero 3.

    Microsoft - Xbox Live 12-Month Gold Renewal Card +

    Posted
    Whyse

    This is certainly worth paying for; you can download demos for a lot of games and try them before you buy them. You can also download many gamer pictures and themes for your Xbox dashboard. There are also additions to games, like new maps, guns, cars, levels, etc. Also, you get a free month with this purchase. This is great for someone under 18 that does not have a credit card to pay with online and whose parents are do not want to pay it for them. You can play online without the gold membership, but there is so much more that you can do with it.

    Should've bought it when it was $30!!!

    6packmike

    I was VERY excited when this was $30!! I immediately went to the store and the associate was just replenishing the same product. I immediately grabbed one even though my current membership doesn't expire in a year. I know it's a long ways away; however, with today's economy you're streetching every dollar you can. Good stuff and it's the only way you can really utilize your 360 console. I LOVE fps and it's insane knowing that I play with millions of people around the world on this thing.

    I'm not much of a math whizz, but I do got to say that $20 off from $50 is not bad at all. And as a bonus (For Me) I get to use my $5 Reward Zone Coupon that I just got from Best Buy. So that means I'm only paying $24.99 for my LIVE CARD. SUCKERS!!! If you're going to play on XBOX 360, you best bring your XBOX LIVE CARD and your "A" game along for the ride! You hear me out there? I'LL SEE YOU ALL ON THE BATTLEFIELD THAT IS.....XBOX LIVE! PEACE OUUUUUTTTTT. (DIZZMANTLER)

    Why pay so much for a system and not get the full potential! Xbox Live allows you, the player, to connect with thousands of players across the world. You can set up your preferences - you can play with the hard core games - or you can play with the novice players- Or just play for fun. The online feature is what makes the Xbox360 so incredible (besides the graphics) Don't sell yourself short. Get the XBOX LIVE and play to your full potential!

    The Best Deal

    Posted
    CalebPlaysSports

    First time xbox live gamers should buy this because it is so worth the price. Xbox live is so much fun. I bought xbox live about a month ago and I absolutely love it. If you feel that you shouldn't have to pay monthly, don't worry about it. The deal is so good. If you decide to get it, BUY THE 12 MONTH MEMBERSHIP. It is CHEAPER. Also don't buy a camera because it is worthless.

    Xbox Live 13 Months

    Posted
    ApocLeader

    Xbox Live is definitely the staple of the xbox 360 gaming console. This card allows you to play your favorite games online. When the labels on the game say "Game play online may change", they are truly true. With this card you receive 13 months of online play making it about seven dollars a month for online game play. Almost all the xbox 360 games are online compatible.

    This is simply a mmust have for anyone who likes to play mulitplayer. I have had xbox live since it launched on the xbox and have loved it. It is. Most games have online multiplayer and some games even go as far as to have online co-op. I know some people don't like the idea of having to pay for online game play, but trust me you get what you pay for.

    Great Value

    Grendal6006

    Got this card when it was going for $30 and it is awesome. Even at the price its currently at it is a great value. 13 months of Xbox Live for $50 is better than constantly renewing 3 months for a year for $80. That $30 dollars that can be used for new games or downloads. Great investment for gamers that use Live constantly.

    You have to have live with your 360!

    This card is very easy to use. I would reccomend buying this instead of buying constant 3 month cards. I would not play my 360 without live. The ps3 live is free but not near as fun as the competitive edge you get with x box live. The live is cheap though. its Less then $4 a month. If you have an X-box 360, get this card.

    best online gaming period

    b16si

    Ps3 and wii do not even compare with the functionality of xbox live. It is a little bit more expensive than it used to be but it is well worth it. Their isn't anything bad about live. But you may not be able to access it because the console always has hardware failure know as the red ring of death.

    Essential for Netflix!

    headexpl0dy

    The best value for long term gamers. You could buy a 3 or 6 month membership but why would you want to when this will save you almost 50% off the other memberships. It's also required for streaming your netflix movies to your TV through your 360 when the new Xbox experience comes out on the 19th.

    XBOX LIVE

    bballdon32

    This is insane, you can meet new friends on your Xbox 360, which can be on the other side of the world. You can be a STAR on XBOX LIVE. You have a gamertag, a gamerpicture, and a theme, and your playing all day. The two game I mostly play LIVE on is HALO 3 and CALL OF DUTY 4. I like it a lot.

    live0311

    I recommend this if you are like me and don't like going to the stores a lot. This is a good money saver instead of buying three months. If you do the math you would spend $120 on the three month memberships to get twelve months. plus you get a bonus month whats so bad about that.
