Gamer Profile


Once you connect your Xbox 360? video game and entertainment system, you'll be ready to start using it. Initial setup is simple: set your default language, create your gamer profile, and you're off and running. The first time you turn on your Xbox 360 console you'll be prompted to set a default language. Use your controller's left stick and the A button to select a language for your console. Note You can change language and other console settings (including time, audio, display, and automatic shutdown) in the System area of the Xbox Dashboard. Once you've set your language, you're ready to create your gamer profile. To start playing games as quickly as possible, choose Create an Offline Profile. If you already have an Xbox Live membership, choose I Am a Member of Xbox Live. If you're not yet a member of Xbox Live but know you're ready to join, choose I Want to Join Xbox Live. Note To access Xbox Live, your Xbox 360 system must be connected to the Internet, directly or through a network, with a high-speed (cable or DSL) connection.
