    Am on the verge of signing up with x-box live....do i need the starter pack or can i just have my credit card handy and an ethernet cable and plug into my telewest modem and away i go???
    I am not that bothered about talking online...is it an integral part of x box live or can i get away without using it?

    You don't have to use it to go online, but it really does add to the experience to gloat/apologise/tell the other people where to go...

    I'd argue, in some games, like capture the flag in Halo for example, its invaluable to talk to others to get your tactics right.

    Get the head set its quite cheap and it really adds to the game being able to verbally abuse your enemies - Its great playing Germans they can really give out a lot of abuse - very funny as i have no idea what they a shouting :laugh:
    Also note alot of servers will kick you if you have no voice - as its a right pain playing with these people as you cant talk tactics or ask them to change teams etc. Its also a rumour that if you have no voice you are using some cheat devices.

    I have a spare one and I never use either of them. I should though, it definately helps when you are playing in a team.
