    game tag name so when i come to get on live it said that game tag

    was taken!! Bummer keep trying to put what i want and some other person

    has got it!! Anyway am i right in thinking you get one month free to gold..?

    But dont want to join till i can aim straight or can stand up etc!! If i fill my gametag in etc..do you get a choice when you want to start your free month..if i get a free month that is??

    You don't need a game, get downloading some of the demos. I could happily play the demos for hours on end and they're totally free. Moto gp with two free tracks to play online, you can't go wrong. :clap:

    If I was you, and I did not own a 360 game, then I would feel bad not to own a 360 game lol. Plus demos do not gets you're points up, so that is one flaw a demo has.

    Also another thing is, the demo's can be deleted by mistake.

    Gold membership is only used for online play, you can actually download games with silver membership:thumbsup:

    I've got PGR3, fifa world cup and DOA4 full games. I have just enjoyed all the demos more. I only have a score of 30 because i've only played them for half an hour or so. I can't get over the size of the demos either, i mean, tiger woods gives you a hole on four different courses (but it took about 20 attempts to get it, finally today hoorah) and table tennis two player, boxing two player, moto gp two courses online etc etc, brilliant stuff. I'm really waiting for dead rising and other upcoming games that i can really get my teeth into.

    If you can only get a couple of games, get Oblivion for SP as it will last you ages and COD2 for multiplayer!

    Yeah, the demos are free to everyone. Start the gold membership just to play moto gp for free with two courses online. In HD on a huge screen it's fantastic.

    By the way, got the wireless thingy bob from kays online for £36. They are £45 (which is cheap anyway) then you get 20% off for first order (£9) and work a treat, highly recommend them, plus they look cool when fitted to the back!

    I heard from somewhere that you have to start the gold account to get your free month!
