    I want to change my gamertag on XBL for two reasons. Firstly it's gay and secondly, nobody can pronounce it and I get call all sorts of amusing things. Also, I managed to break my headset due to winning too many races on PGR2 and my head swelling to an incredible size.

    So, if I buy a new starter kit when my current year runs out (must be soon) can I just get a new gamertag on my current xbox? Also, what happens to my player in games like PGR2 where it signs me in as Paiger each time? Will I have to start again?

    Spike, I think you changed yours recently, how did you do it and what did it entail?

    Buy a new starter kit get a new tag, call M$ & cancel your old account job done.

    :smashin:

    EDIT you'll see your old tag & new tag on the sign in screen, you can get rid of your old account off the HD.
    Also all your old stats will be lost but you wont have to remake players ect.

    Hi Steve,

    LFC Fan is right as usual :rolleyes: ;)

    You can purchase just the headset now to replace your old one but a new starter kit is the only way to change your tag, unless you have any of the 2 month free trial barcodes that come with some games - using that now will at least let you get the tag you want before someone else.
    Try adding a new friend in the dash to see what tags are free before you start the new account.

    Regards

    OK, so when I sign in to PGR2 it signs me in a paiger. If I change my name to something else, will I lose all those platinum medals or can I rename that player. I know it's only one game but I would be gutted to lose all that hard work. My sub lasts to March so maybe I'll leave it till then before I change it to Bitch Vicar.

    You didn't earn your medals on live did you?
    They are stored on the HD you are only changing your Tag so you will still have all your medals mate.
    I made a player for golf i used him on my old tag & he's still there on my new one.
    Now your stats for (R6 Grit Wolfy) will be gone forever, i know cos i've lost all mine :(

    Ps all your times on PGR2 will be gone with your old tag.

    Never checked mine on GRIT but I'm probably ranked as a suicide case.

    Spike, think I accepted you'r request, didn't realise you had changed it. Not sure when I will get a new tag, my sub runs till march so may wait till then. I've also bust my headset in half though so could do with a new one.


    LFC, I like the suggestion but I am also considering Fluffy Bunny and also Hippy Stabber.
