Cannot use console until subscription payments are udated

Hello! Your Xbox is simply telling you that in order for you to access any of the online content available for the Xbox 360, you will have to update your subscription payments by adding a valid credit card to the account credentials so that Microsoft is able to charge you for your usage of their online service, Xbox Live. Until you update your subscription payment option, you cannot access the online content. To update your information on the account, go to, log into your account and then head on over to account details and then "Payment Options" and then update your information by entering your valid credit card information. Hope this helps! Good luck! :)

How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb

I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360:

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website: "

How do you update your xbox 360

How To Get the Updates
For most gamers, keeping the XBOX 360 up to date is pretty easy, especially if they've taken advantage of the numerous online components through XBOX Live!. When a gamer is signed in to the Live! service, the system automatically checks for new updates. If one is available, you'll be prompted to update. Most updates take 3 to 5 minutes depending on the speed of your internet connection.

If you've never updated your console, but have access to a high speed internet connection, getting your updates through the web is pretty simple and straightforward. Unfortunately, Microsoft has made online updates unavailable to those who have not registered for the XBOX Live! service. Most folks that don't like or participate in online gaming wouldn't normally think of signing up for XBOX Live!.


The Live! service has two levels of membership. The gold level allows you to play games online with others, an enhanced friends list, the online marketplace, and more, but is only available to those who subscribe monthly or purchase prepaid subscription packs. Getting a silver membership is free, and allows you to receive all system updates, but this also means you'll need to give some personal information to Microsoft. I've read through their terms of use and privacy statements pretty carefully, and even though it doesn't contain any major clauses that would cause me to be concerned, I would have appreciated an option to get online updates without having to give out my name, telephone number, and personal address.
8b5644ba4a76476f--54c34f3a-11972598fb2--76ab-628131945-w580h580.jpgYou can sign up for an XBOX Live! account directly through the 360 dashboard. Instructions for doing so are located here. Once you've successfully created an account (which may take a few attempts if the service bombs out on you), you should be notified immediately that a new update is available.
Not everyone has high-speed Internet access, and those that don't participate in online gaming may not have their Internet access accessible from their living rooms. Yes, Microsoft offers a Wi-Fi bridge for the 360, but most folks are not going to cough up $100 bucks to download an update. Besides, that still wouldn't solve the problem for dial-up users.
Microsoft has made one update available as a direct download from, which allows you to play more original XBOX games on your 360. If you don't care about 1080p or any other feature that they've made available, you can download the update and burn it to a CD. To update your 360, just stick that CD into the drive. It's unfortunate that Microsoft doesn't make all updates available in this manner, which would benefit a great deal of users that own high-tech consoles, but have low-tech web connections.
If you're in the dial-up group, there are a few ways you can get the full updates to your system. One option is to grab your console and drag it to a friend or family member's house in order to download updates. It's certainly a pain, but fortunately major updates are few and far between.

8b5644ba4a76476f--54c34f3a-11972598fb2--76a9-87690626-w580h580.jpgIf you're technically inclined, you can use a Windows 98SE, 2000, XP, or Vista computer to share your dial-up connection with your XBOX 360 via ICS (Internet Connection Sharing). It can be a little tricky to set up for the novice, but fortunately there's plenty of useful guides to walk you through the process. Updates will take a while to download this way, but it will prevent you from having to pack up your 360 and drag it to your neighbor's house just to download the latest updates.
Final Thoughts
On the surface, it may seem inconvenient to make the casual 360 owner jump through hoops to update a video game machine, but the move to an upgradeable platform will allow video game makers to adapt their existing technologies to ways that will improve your experience long after your initial purchase. Those who are up to date in the latest gaming hardware, but relics when it comes to computers and Internet access, will find updating their 360s much more inconvenient than those with ultrafast connections and whole house LAN. It's unfortunate that there's been less effort to provide system updates via alternative means to the Internet.
In the end, if you're always looking for ways to get more out of the gear you already own, these updates are a sure fire way to make your 360 investment seem better and better every day.

Hope this helps.

All of a sudden when we start Call of Duty world at war it says there is an update for the game. Chose update and it then says that it cannot download the update and signs out of xbox live. You cannot not...

check playing with this disc on any other Xbox 360 connected to live, ideally the disc should not have problem since the problem you are facing could be with saving or downloading of the specific update required to play game online on xbox live which is mostly related to updated playlists.

If it still does not work, try erasing the saves for this particular game from your Xbox 360 HDD in case you are okay to forego the game progress / XP gained for the offline campaign play.

Cannot play any games live on xbox 360 for bfmc2

As per Ea websites, and Xbox live websites the servers are not down. You should restart your xbox to see if there might be an update for the game (you must install updates to be able to play online, denying an update will sign you out). If that doesn't help call XBOX live. Hope this helps! Please sumbit a rating.
