Rated 10 out of 10 by clark6050 Smart investment
I believe that this one year subscription to the Xbox 360 is a smart investment some people I know think the price is not reasonable. but I tell them " but how many times will you use it" then that changes there impression. But this is a must have to any xbox360 owner not only to play online with other people but to watch Netflix movies, listen to music, and even check your face book page! Also live gets us away from the single player campaign of the game we bought(not to say the campaign isn't good) the campaign gives us more action and twists to keep us interested. but it gets boring after a few times so live can bring us back to the game. Because every time you play its something different new players, new weapons, and new game play. Meeting other real players is fun to you can meet some nice(or mean) people. Also if you win the match you can brag about it(only 'till the next match.) but i would recommend this to any xbox360 owner I know.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Tarzanman0 Don't complain about better service
Xbox LIVE has so much to offer that people do not understand. Like music, movies, netflix. facebook, and espn to name a few. So when Sony tries to put out an online Xbox LIVE type thing and fails because it has no money, that does nothing for the consumer. Wii's online is useless as well. I would prefer to pay for Xbox LIVE and know that it will work every day out of the year (maybe a day or two when they fully update it, even then they sometimes give out a thank you for not going online for a day). Basically Xbox LIVE is near perfect for an online console service. Services like Destination Arcade help me pick out better arcade games or ones like my favorites, a radio station for your own music, easy to use interface to interact with friends and play online, the list goes on and on. Sure the PS3 and Wii online are free, but there is a reason for that. I would rather have better service and pay a small amount of money for one year than have terrible service for free. Im 17 and have a job, and 50 dollars is easily paid, so no one should complain about the price at all.
Rated 10 out of 10 by big papi must buy for 360 owners
i just got my xbox 360 pro a little over a month and a half ago and i am very pleased. i got live about 3 and a half weeks ago. before this i was playing single player. now dont get me wrong because single is awesome but it is just nowhere near as good as live. sure i was havin fun playin cod 5 by myself and i got a lot of achievements but i am never going back to single player again. team deathmatch and other multiplayer modes for any game are awesome. you can talk to people and almost everybody has a headset. it is very addicting. i have certainly played a lot and i assure you that i enjoyed every minute of it. right now i only play cod 5 on live and i have yet tp try out my college football and basketball games. i plan on buying halo 3for my next game because i hear it has good multiplayer. so to conclude, every xbox 360 owner should have live. if you dont you are missing out.
Rated 10 out of 10 by dgteske What Xbox Live Offers!!!
I have been playing Xbox Live for a while now, and it is the best online experience you will ever experience! Xbox Live uses many great ways to find your friends, or even people you have recently played. Don't like that guy you just played with, not a problem, you can tell Xbox Live that you want to avoid that player! It works the same way if you like a player, just tell Xbox Live you prefer playing with that player, and you will run into him again on Xbox Live. But what if you like him that you want to be able to play with him whenever you want to. Well than just add him to your friends list. There is also messaging and chatting options. If your friend is not online you can send him a message that he will get when he is online, or you can chat with him using the chat service on Xbox Live. And then we have the MarketPlace, MarketPlace is where you can download demos, movies, gamerpictures, trailers, etc. It is not hard to use, infact you will find yourself browsing it with ease in no time. Xbox Live is a good infestment, make sure you at least try it. Oh ,but be warned when you try it you will get addicted!!!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Bacon Lover You definetly need this if you have an xbox360!!
This is a must have for all xbox360 owners.It gives exclusives such as, facebook,twitter and other sorts of fun stuff to do! Also, with gold you can go online for multiplayer games so you can get right into the action. There is also the avatar creater you can use to "dress" up your avatar and make it look just like you! In my opinion, I think it is ridiculous to have to pay to go online but on the other hand, it will probably be one of the best gaming experiences of your life. Plus, they have some of the best games that the playstation 3 does not have like:Halo for instince. Halo is a fantastic game, but it is even better if you go online with it (PS3 does not have Halo availiable to pay). And that is just a tiny bit of the good things this product have in store for you.
Rated 10 out of 10 by dasciguy Great Deal
I think XBOX LIVE is a great deal that everyone should have. Its a great way to get away from playing the campaign over and over again. And even though a lot of adults think its not safe for their kids to be communicating, its actually designed to allow fun and fun only. Nobody likes having to play the same levels over and over but with XBOX LIVE, you can mix everything up. On a lot of shooting games, you can play on different maps with different weapons and have a new experience every time! Its a great deal that is a total must-have. Its what makes having an XBOX 360 fun and without it, you would be stuck doing the same levels with your friends. Its a completely safe way for people to enjoy themselves without worrying about "being hacked" or something stupid like that.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MrPandaGuy One of the biggest features of the Xbox
This card enables you to unlock the full potential of your Xbox 360. Xbox live is one the biggest, funnest, and most entertaining part of Xbox 360. There are so many benifits of Live besides online multiplayer. Being able to download demos, game add ons and Netflix would be my favorite. But trust me if you don't have Live your missing out on the new era of gaming. Oh, and if you worried about your kids hearing profanity and other inappropriate content fear not their is a feature wich enables you to controll the users access to content such as music, videos, movies, online multiplayer, and games based on their ratings. Xbox Live is truly a huge breakthrough in social gaming and interactions.

Rated 9 out of 10 by Steviathon A must need
I bought it the start of the summer, and I gotta say, my gaming experience wouldn't be the same without it! Its so much fun playing with friends or discovering the huge world of online game. But my only problem is that I'm pretty sure this was only $50 about a year or something ago. Why would Microsoft decide to increase the price during a recession? Honestly, as useful as it is to gaming, the whole online multiplayer should've at least been free like how Nintendo and Sony do it.

If you have an xbox 360 then xbox live is a must get. When i moved from Az to Nc I thought I would never talk to my friends again. Well xbox live saved that. I can talk to every one of them over xbox live. It so great! Having friends on xbox live is the best thing. Also a mic is a must have. Also online multiplayer is a blast. So overall i Would definetly get this. You get netflix ,Zune, Last Fm, Facebook, twitter, news and just about everything!!
