Hi Stacey,

Does your son play on the old Xbox or the Xbox 360?

Xbox Live has been discontinued on the original Xbox as of April 15, 2010. A press release can be found here:

If my son has XBox Live Gold Membership do we just need an internet connection to play or do we require extra GB per month to play?


The xbox live gold membership is paid for when you buy it. It never runs out until you have used all of the time you bought. Like say you bought a 12 month subscription it will last you the whole year until the day you bought the last one and activated it. Only time you use money is when you want to buy something from xbox live. All you need is the internet wifi or direct cable works. You can actually use your xbox live account on any xbox. Say if his friend has an xbox and has xbox live he can then use his account on his friends xbox to play online with his friend. You dont have to worry though every time he goes to an xbox he has to recover his xbox live account info so no one else can use it while he is using it. There is also a few new updates to keep his account safe as well when he does want to do something like that. also you can go into family settings and make it so he cant buy anything with out a pass code even put a timer on it with a pass code to limit time of play. So inclosing no you dont have to buy GB it just uses your internet connection and it does cover the cost of play for as long as you bought the subscription. Hope this helps :)

I've got a uplay account so does this mean that my friends that play with me must also get one or what?


This means you don't have xbox live gold membership , you will need xbox live gold membership in order to play online

or if you have any free xbox live trials like 48 hours or 14 day , use it you can access online features in those limited time

hope this helps :)

Son purchased yearly Gold membership thinking two players could use it second player not able to use. Why?


Hi. Your son most likely bought the Gold membership to XBOX Live thinking that it was an XBOX Live Gold Family Pack. A single Gold membership costs $59.99 USD. An XBOX Live Gold Family Pack costs $99.99 USD. With the family pack, you get four 12-month Xbox LIVE Gold memberships for less than the price of two. Two players cannot use a single Gold membership, but if they play on the same console, then two players could share one membership. Also, certain games, such as Call of Duty: Black Ops and Halo:Reach allow players to play online multiplayer games together with one "guest" player at the same time, on the same TV. I hope this cleared everything up.

Notice:current profile is not allowed to play on xbox live . call of duty black ops


to play online you must pay for an xbox live gold subscription. you can do it on your xbox where it says upgrade profile, online at the xbox website under the my xbox tab, then accounts, then under membership options choose upgrade/manage account or you can buy a gold subscription card at any games store. the smallest you can get is 1 month for just over ten dollars, or 12 month which is usually about 80 dollars. note that you need a valid credit or debit card to purchase online.
hope this helps

Paid a years on xbox360 gold membership for my son, xbox is connected to live. I am connected for first month free but my son can not get connected.


Your son's xbox live account might have no permission to access online xbox gaming, to be able to check and correct this problem try following this steps:
  1. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Family Settings, Xbox LIVE Controls.
  3. Sign in using the e-mail address and password you used when you set up your child's Xbox LIVE account.
  4. Select Online Gameplay, Xbox 360 Online Games.
  5. Select Allowed or Blocked

Just lost xbox live message coming up xbox live membership not valid - still got 2 months left on membership. have been using account today up unitl 10 minutes ago


Is your xbox 360 modded? If it is, you've been banned from XBOX Live because you were foolish and played backups that weren't stealthed. And your Xbox is banned for LIFE.

Hi, i've just got an xbox (used) and i put a 48hr code to use it live. the problem is that when i go online with my friend as a guest it says please use a valid membership! i can play online perfectly ok....


Do you mean play together on the same Xbox, or play online together from different locations?
If you're trying to play on the same Xbox online, you can't because he can't login because he doesn't have an Xbox LIVE account on your machine, he's just a guest.
It's also possible that the 48 hr card might have expired.
