Creating new live account - What email - hotmail/msn?? advice!


Established Member

It's got to the point where my son needs his own live account so I need some advice on creating a totally seperate account for him.

He will want to use the messenger service tied into his gamertag so what is the best email to create?

If i remember correctly when we created one at my friends once you could either specify an existinge mail or create a new .msn one??

I'm on the look out for a 12 months gold subcode as well so will be entering this, but i take it they want credit/debit card info no matter what?

Advice on the right order to attempt setting this up would be great.

My original gamertag was created on the xbox1 a very long time ago so i'm not clued up on the messenger/msn/hotmail/.net intergration!
