  • Talking to people in parties or through voice messages.

However although it is an awesome service it is not worth buying Xbox Live Gold over the dashboard as it is more expensive, Microsoft makes it hard to cancel and auto renews it so you may be paying for Xbox Live when you have got rid of an Xbox - not cool!

BUT you can buy 12 Month Xbox Live Gold subscription cards online from many places for cheaper prices. I have already mentioned how if you live in the U.S.A buying cheap xbox live gold subscriptions of Amazon.com is a pretty good option and a cheap way of getting xbox live gold which is what we all want.

So you do really want to buy an Xbox Live subscription online well good.

If you want reassurance just buy a Gold card of Amazon.com (link below)

There are other places to get them though such as Ebay and other shops but you do have to consider how reliable these places are.

BUT whatever you do don't buy it of the Dashboard as it really is stupid as it:

  • costs more
  • auto renews 
  • is hard to cancel
  • is giving MICROSOFT more money and they really don't need it and someone else would appreciate it a lot more (like me - just send me $20 in the mail and I will get right back to you!)  ONLY JOKING!
I hope you get a cheap Xbox Live gold 12 month card soon and save yourself some money!  If you found this article informative please share it!
