Default XBOX360 question ?

I just purchased an XBOX360 and was curious if any of you have an XBOX live account? And if so is it worth the cost? I am so frigging amazed with the system I had a PS2 with NBA live 06 and I got a used copy of it for the XBOX360 and was shocked at the difference and not just the graphics. The way the players and the jerseys move the sweat poring of there face and the way they slow down as the game goes on.(WOW) I didnít think it would be such a drastic difference but Iím on the fence whether or not to join the XBOX live family. What do you all think of it? I appreciate the feed back.

Yes, get it. It is well worth the $50(i think) you pay for. You can download free demos, rosters, and patches for your games.

Hell yeah it's worth it. I'm signed up for the $9.99 a month plan where they just take it out of my bank account automatically. Face it, once you're done with the campaign or season, Matchmaking is where it's at.

Definitely get it. In my mind, it is the most valuable part of Xbox. Also, if you really aren't in a hurry, last year Best Buy sold 3 month passes for $7.99 ($32 for the year). I actually lucked out and after buying 6 of them, one accidentally registered as 1 year.

Funny to see someone amazed by NBA Live's graphics considering what the series has been through in the past few years.

Its worth it. Cant play xbox 360 without xbox live. You can but you rob yourself of the online experience. There is a bunch of stuff people do on xbox live I dont do that you might be interested in.

1. The $ sign comes before not after. How old are you again because you claimed to have attended the NBA Finals when Lakers played Bulls in 91. Pretty sad you still put the $ after

2. Its $60 not $50. I'm guessing you dont check your credit history to notice the charges from xbox live. In your case its $60 and change because tax is automatically included now.

12 months in a year. $10 per month = you are a retard. I guess you like taking it up the ass?

my annual membership ends every october. i get an e-mail from those bastards reminding me i have one month of gold left and that i will be automatically charged to renew my yearly subscription.

thats when i call those mofos and tell em im about to cancel the shiet cuz it aint worth it. then they proceed to use the sales pitch about all these new features that are about to come on xbox live - this year, the dude was overselling me internet explorer.

i then tell im not interested and they will offer you the goodies. if you've been a gold member for a long time, they will offer you some good deals. they don't want to lose you, so they'll offer you something that will catch your interest.

2 years ago, they gave me 25 percent off of my 1 year gold membership. last year was the best - dude gave me 33 percent off and 1200 microsoft points ($15).

this year, they gave me 6 months of gold for $20. just gotta play da game, dawg
