About to get a 360 - Can I...?

Can i use the subsription kit i got from a normal Xbox game (unused) and use that for the 360 to go live and play other gamers?

Have read a few posts but not entirely sure on the matter.

Does anyone have any tips on how to get it cheap? I've seen a few posts mentioning getting a game with the live service free - is that the 12 months gold service??

Cheers

Do you mean subscription kit as in those ones that come with either PGR2, Pro Evo 5, Halo 2 etc (like this)? If it's any use to you, I purchased the PGR2 Xbox Live Starter Kit (complete with headset for the original Xbox) for £25 and used the 12 month sub code to renew my Xbox Live subscription on my 360 for another year. It fact, the packaging actually stated that it was 360 compatible.

I then sold PGR2 and the headset (which was useless to me anyway) on eBay.

I also used an original Xbox Live package which came complete with PES5, headset and 12 months Live which added another 12 months to my 360 Live experience :)

Will this give 12 months 'gold' membership for the 360?
