Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Xbox LIVE Gold 12-Month Membership Card (Xbox One/360) (Accessory)Xbox live is probably one of the best things about owning an Xbox 360. The system is so effective that I'd have been happy even if the visual capabilities of the console weren't so good.
So what's so great about Live then? Well, for anyone who's played PC games online, you'll know that you have to create an account for every single one of them, which can be confusing if nothing else. Xbox live allows you to create one account, linked to your hotmail account if you so wish, allowing you to play any compatible game online without having to register every time. Aside from this, Live now allows you to download playable demo's, video's and pictures to your Xbox 360's hard drive. There is also a new thing called "Xbox Live Arcade". This is where you can play some 80's classics and a range of puzzle games.
Live also has a few neat touches that round off the whole experience. You can now have a Gamercard. This is where you can show off how many achievements you've unlocked and how good your online reputation is. Its only a small thing, but it makes a neat package even better.
The Membership card for sale here allows you access to the Online gaming element of Live (the rest is free). If you have Project Gotham 3 or Dead or Alive 4, it is essential. At £32 it works out at £2.60 per month, which is fantastic value for money. If you want to play against other people from around the world, there is no better system.

You should try the PS3 Playstation network. Its equally as good, if not better and I have both systems.

It's funny how you pay for quality, just a year after you post this the "FREE" PSN gets hacked. Do you ever see xbox live getting hacked? NO? I think not.

Xbox live is for foolish people with too much money and little intelligence. I have a PS3 and an Xbox so I am perfectly positioned to comment on both. I prefer the xbox interface it feels more user friendly and intuitive , I also prefer the xbox controllers which have a better feel to them than those for the PS3 but after that its downhill for the xbox. Having to pay again for Netflix etc , inability to complete a simple task of surfing the web without a subscription fee???? come on how can you justify that??? Unable to use parental controls unless the parent also has a rip off live account. Score Xbox 2 PS3 8 - No contest
