    Hi all,

    XBox live newbie here! Now I may come across as being a bit of a numpty with all you seasoned xbox livers but I just wanted to help/advice (please don't laugh!).

    So any tips for a newbie? I have yet to play anyone online. Managed to sort out month to month gold membership (thinking of buying one of those cheaper 13 month memberships).

    But I wanted to get some basics right:

    1. To play online against anyone I need to own the game right?

    2. I have managed to download some stuff but get a message each time saying unable to log into messenger after I have signed in to live - where is the option to try this again? (I have upgraded to the new operating system, you know the one with the characters etc).

    3. I have no friends yet! How do I find some?

    4. My gamertag is: springsteenboss (yes I am a massive Springsteen fan!) if anyone wants to add me and help me around the thing.

    Thanks in advance for all your help.

    1) Yes

    2) Messenger is the msn chat thing. I disabled it on mine. But I think it's on your user profile, and auto sign in.

    3) Play some games, and add the people you like. If you wanna play cod4 or 5, add me for a game. ukbootlegs
