This is something you sort of have to figure out for yourself. Are you interested in competing with or playing cooperatively with other people? A lot of people bought Halo just to play it online, same with CoD4. Other people don't care whatsoever about playing online.

Personally I wouldn't enjoy games like CoD4 if it wasn't for online. Then there are games like Fable II or Resident Evil 5 coming out that are mostly single player focused games, but the coop is a nice bonus. If Fable II had no coop I would still be getting it, but if CoD4 had no online I would have passed it up.

If you enjoy playing with other people then you might as well drop down the $50. Why spend so much money on a console and games and only get half enjoyment out of it?


I've been refurbished and reissued, prepackaged and precooked, decontaminated and deloused, but I still smell, sound, look and feel like shit.

New to the video game forums?

Yea, do it.
To get the best experience out of games that are team-based, like Halo, Call of Duty 4, Battlefield: Bad Company, and the like, get together a team of friends, or people you meet over Xbox LIVE that are either a) good, or b) not abusive, and it's a hell of a lot more fun.

Sure, you'll lose occassionally, but it's all about fun.

Online play kicks ass, I say go for it! Its worth the price of $8 a month.

Xbox live silver is free, but you don't play any actual multiplayer.

It just gives you access to DLC.

8 bucks isn't that bad. Go for it.

DLC = Downloadable Content. The only difference between a Gold and a Silver account is that you can play the game online with other people.

There are tons of parental controls. They can restrict the info that shows when you sign on, who messages you, what games you play, how long you play, etc.

If I had an Xbox I would definitely get Live, however the fact you need to pay for Live (and the expense of a Wifi adapter) is the main reason I won't buy an Xbox360. I have a PS3 and that is free online (with builtin wifi) so I don't see a point in getting an Xbox if I have to pay for the amount of time I'd spend on it compared to my PS3 :P

Did you even bother to check Xbox.com about this? It would have told you all of this if you'd checked.
