ReAd My ReViEw! :D
First off, as i am an owner of an Xbox 360, for 2 and a half years now, and not getting the red ring of death, i am a satisfied customer. relating to the annual, monthly, or period subscription... i have to say, its totally worth it. Microsoft has secure servers which is a must due to the recent hacking of Playstation Network by a group known as Anonymous. Also, Xbox Live is a lot more user friendly than its competitors. You have the ability to customize an avatar with Xbox Live Add-Ons and show them off to your friends. Games like Guitar Hero 5, allow you to actually use your avatar during gameplay. Xbox Live is absolutely worth every penny you put into it. Unlike games like World of Warcraft which can charge you up to 13 dollars a month and restrict you to only 1 game! Xbox Live has thousands of games online capable, and games available to download directly to your Xbox. Xbox Live, you get what you pay for, i got a lot!
Great Deal, But took awhile
Great deal it took me awhile to find where the code was. Just open your order on gamestop.com and click on the order number and it should be there. I never got an email to tell me where to look, so just a heads up if you can't find it. but this is a very good deal, and the code worked great.
Hey - XBox Haters
Look, we know you hate the Xbox360. Get over it. Live beats PSN any day of the week. The only downside to Live is the price, though even then it's less than $5 a month. And with that we don't have to deal with all of the annoying people who are just there to cause problems. That's the good thing about having to pay for Live. You get kicked off of PSN then whatever...it's free. You get kicked off of Live and you lose out on $59.99. Might think twice about being a jerk for that much.
The interface is far easier to use with Live, as well. PSN basically uses the standard Sony television interface. Live was designed for gamers. Perhaps if the PS3 had some exclusives worthy of playing online they'd spend some time making the service work better - oh, and let's remember the month that PSN wasn't even available.
An instant code for a discount!
This is the greatest thing you could buy right now for Xbox LIVE. This is even cheaper than it was before the price went up! I didn't even have to wait, the code was right there after I bought it... and in a instant I had 12 months of Xbox live again. This deal is very good.. only paying basically $3.33 a month rather than $5.00 a month. Get it now!!!!
Good price, wait time is a drag.
Like most I hate how they jacked up the price for a 12 month card, but with this deal being better than most I couldn't resist.
The only thing that I can truly complain and moan about is the wait time for this thing. I ordered the card shortly after 11am and was told that I would have the code within the hour. For whatever reason that hour turned into 4 and a half hours.
Other than that I'm happy. Just wish the wait time was a little shorter.
With tax total = $43.19
Fact: This service for a whole year is cheaper (even at full price) than most cell phone provider services are for month, and before you think comparing a gaming service to a cell phone service isn't the same thing, then why are you paying to talk to your friends and family when you can go visit them? probably cause its convenient right? well isn't it convenient to play with people all over the world from your living room? yes PC and PS3 let you do that for free, but what you probably don't realize is that what you pay for XBL goes to maintaining servers and keeping it up and running. which by the way, I am sure this is the reason sony started the PSN plus service, but probably too late to stop the big crash and security breaches though. However, I'm not saying one system is better then the other (subscription prices should not effect your decision of this) but if you cant be bothered to spend money in to what can be described in supporting your console of choice, then you shouldn't be complaining, and go play angry birds on your iphone or whatever it is you do.
I recommend that if you are going to be constantly on Live and you want Gold, this is the cheapest way to go in the long wrong. I say that because for a year going month by month is way to expensive (12x$10=$120), and doing it every 3 months is also expensive(4x$25=$100). So if you are going to always have live, buy the 12 month card.
12 month live.
Pretty good, would be better if it was CHEAPER!!!!
I am not sure what the other people are talking about. The redemption code was there on the order confirmation page. I typed it in to Xbox Live and it was done. It was immediate. Thanks GameStop.
