You must be connected to xbox live to update them, once connected starting the game should automatically prompt you to update (please note a hard drive is required)

Does the new xbox 360 gaming system give a free trial of the live internet access or do you have to purchase live immedieately. And is the firmare update a onetime thing, or do you have to perform this...


Hi, to answer your questions, 1 you will have to pay for xbox live you can get top up cards from most video games shops or you can pay by card, you dont have to purchase live at all if you dont plan on playing massive multi player on line games such as call of duty etc etc, you can still play these games as normal on your xbox but you can get to play other players online via the live network if you plan on challenging other players around the live network if your into playing massive online player games, you also get some bonus levels via live but these are not needed if you dont want to use live.

i have got an xbox 360 and all i use it for is playing the games as they come ive never needed to use it online as im happy enough just playing the games as they are.

now for the updates, you can either go through the live network to get the firmware updates or certain games come with the updates on them so if you dont want to use live then the xbox will update from a game, it is not something you need to do with every live game but as microsoft bring out new patches to get round bugs in their software or a new feature your xbox needs to play a certain game well you will either be sent the update via the live network if your planning on using the network or when you buy certain games the xbox will update from the game, the updates come out say every 6 months to 12 months so its not something you need to do all the time and its not something you need to be worried about because if you buy a game that needs your xbox updating then this game will update the firmware without you having to go on live network.

please let me know if you have any other questions or problems.

will give you some advice though, when you get the xbox please make sure the air vent at the bottom end of the xbox as if its lying flat, at one end you have the hard drive if it comes with one or if you buy one but the other grey plastic panel at the other end is an air vent so make sure this is not blocked as it will cause the xbox it over heat in a couple of minutes you will then have the dreaded red ring of death and need to get it sent back for repair so make sure this vent has a good 3 inches of space before anything else as the air is sucked in through this panel and at the back make sure the fans vent is not blocked as this is where the hot air will be blown out.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have pages of unrated posts, thanks

Bought Lips recently and played it fine first


The game was released broken. There is an update on xbox live that fixes it. So you pay twice, once for the game and once for xbox live. If you don't have xbox live or no internet you simply can't play. In other words you got robbed. Nice scam huh?

Bought used xbox 360. It came with a lego star wars game. That game plays correctly every time. Bought a used Halo 3 game. When you put it in, the system thinks it is a DVD. Took the game back and got...

There could be one of 2 things going on here. Ether you are having a software or hardware problem. To address the software problem you will need to connect the XBOX 360 to XBOX Live and download the latest updates to the system. Most likely this is your issue as the XBOX 360 came out before Halo 3 and you do not have an OS updates on the system to load it properly.

If you do not have an LIVE account. You might trying to check with a friend to see if he will log into your system to run the updates. Another option is that they sell just One Month LIVE card access cards for around 8 Dollars. These cards will let you get on line and get the updates with out having to get a one year subcription. Note alot of your newer games give you a One Month card with the game when you by it new to be able to get any updates you might need.

Now if the updates do not fix the problem then you have some kind of hardware problem and you may need to check with your local repair shop to see if they can fix tthe problem.

Hope this helps

When i load up a game my xbox live kicks me out but when i go back to the dashbord it sined me in ?


you probably need to update the game. Xbox will sign you out until you receive the update to that game. once it has been updated you should be able to play the game online.

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade
