Today i was trying too play online games , so far i've tried "gears of war" and "saints row" and it keeps coming up with this message "Your current gamer profile settings do not allow playing of online games.To continue all signed-in gamer profiles must be allowed to play online games." i've checked in the xbox360 dashboard system menu and looked and i have got it set too let everyone play online so i dont get the problem and i have had a look in gamer profile edit menu and theres no where for me too change this so any help at all would be great for all i know i could have missed something simple but this has happened to me before i used too have an account that worked fine with both those games until one day it just came up with the above message , so i deleted that account from xbox live made a new one started playing on that and now months later its happened again i cant play online... i decided too create another one but now its saying it on that one too so yes please explain what is happening.

Re: gamer profile settings

Have you tried the recover game tag options? I would suggest this if you did not purchase a gold membership. By the way gold memberships can be purchased on ebay for a fraction of the cost of retail outlets, plus you get emailed the key almost instantly. Actually faster than going to the store..

I believe only voices from other players come through on the headset. Other game sounds (cutscenes, gun shots, explosions, etc.) come through the TV. Try checking the Chat or Accessory settings on your PS3 to see if there's an option to change where the sound comes from. It'll be in the PS3 dashboard (press the PS3 button on your controller). I hope this helps and don't forget to rate. Good luck and thank you!

    Unreadable discs xbox 360

    Most likely a DVD drive problem. Call 1-800-4my-xbox and they should take care of it for you...especially if the console is fairly new.
