    Having just about run out of our 1 month free trial on live i don't want to pay £120 per year live membership for me and the 3 kids (especially when its all free on our PS3).Is there anyway that i can get a family membership where it covers the xbox itself not individual people,as to me its a complete rip off considering the competition of the PS3 or are MS just ignorant of that fact.
    Hopefully i can get a better deal out there.

    Thanks

    not that im aware of im afraid, however i totally agree with u that u should get maybe 3-4 tags all assigned under 1 xbox, maybe though because each tag is a seperate account which u can recover onto another xbox somewhere else is probably the reason why.

    It isn't possible as far as I'm aware.

    You might be better off getting four 3-month LIVE memberships (one for each) that might satisfy them in the short term! You can get 3 month memberships for around £13 on eBay. Not ideal by any means though :(

    Is there no way you could just set up an online profile for all to use? Fair enough it won't allow MP gamer points but would stop everyone from sullying everyone else's profile? I'm presuming that while you've had the month free it's not been all 4 of your fighting to get on at once?

    Tis certainly shoddy of old MS

    It does seem strange that officially it costs £40 per person in a househould.

    If you have a typical house with a Dad and 2 children playing 360 then that is £120, and with it becoming more common for mum to play 360 £160 is a rip.

    I guess MS don't think family members care about Gs.
