Q:

Do you have to pay for Xbox Live?

A:

Xbox Live is a premium service that requires a paid subscription. A monthly or yearly subscription can be chosen. The yearly subscription saves money if the plan is kept for an extended period.

An Xbox Live subscription gives members access to unlimited online multiplayer gaming, exclusive weekly discounts for Live members, early access to content and free game demos. If an advanced TV is available, access to HD movies, TV shows, live events, music and sports through the OneGuide app can be obtained. This app allows users to download additional apps, such as Skype and Internet Explorer.

    What are some badass gamertags for the Xbox?

    Bad-ass gamer tags for Xbox Live should include a self-titling prefix and an elaborate, explanatory suffix designed to strike fear into the heart of opponents. Good examples of bad-ass gamer tags include "LittleMissRuthless," "BigManiac" and "PoisedPanther." Each word should give opponents an idea of the player's gaming style and make them fearful of their tactics. The use of alliteration and puns can create an exceptionally bad-ass gamer tag.
