    I just want to start off by saying great thread GraFF. I have always wondered how xbox live was? I have never played live nor a 360. Is it sort of the same as ps2 online? You login it does dnas and you have to accept/decline the thing?

    I think it's more like a system where it pulls up a list of the friends you've added (as a XBOX Live name) and from there it tells you what game they're playing and whatnot so you'll know what to put in, I'm pretty sure it works like that.

    In my opinion Xbox Live is the "be all/end all" online gaming experience that I've had the priviledge of playing. This will be my opinion until I eventually get a PS3 sometime down the road... so please don't think I am "slamming" Sony's (new) online setup for their newly unveiled PS3.

    Also, it is NOTHING like playing on PS2's online service (or lack thereof). After playing on Xbox Live for the past several months, I now realize what an utter joke Sony's PS2 online service truly was.

    Here is how I have my Xbox 360 setup: I turn my system on, and POOF! I am right there logged on Xbox Live. You're basically automatically logged on, you can see how many of your friends are online, you can go to the download section and download content, demos, themes, avatars, movies, TV shows, etc. etc.

    Long story short, it takes much less time to get logged on Xbox Live... compared to the "waiting game" (Will it get through DNAS on the first try? Will I have to try logging on a second time?) that I used to experience when I played PS2 online games, it is a HUGE difference!

    The reflection of the 360 logo is too long for a reflection. Also consider fading it towards the bottom. :smile:

    Live is exponentially better than PS2's online capabilities. Like Creep said, you turn on your 360, and you're on. Everything is connected via Live, it's not like PS2 where each different game is on a different "network" (for lack of a proper word since I'm not sure what it would be called).

    At any point in time that you are logged in to Live you can simply press the logo button in the center of the controller and it will bring up a "mini dashboard" as I call it. It's a miniaturized version of the central area of Xbox Live. From there you are 2 seconds away from viewing Friends, Messages, and just people that you recently played with.

    Also, whenever there's any kind of event, such as someone signing on, or you receiving a message, or friends request, or being invited to join a game, a small icon will appear on your screen. Press the Xbox logo and it automatically takes you to the message, or friends request etc. and gives you options as how to handle it.

    Not to mention Private Chats, at any time you can chat with anyone in any game.

    It's absolutely amazing coming off of PS2 online gaming.

    No, you can make another account but not on the same XBL Card lol

    that one account you have is for all games, for everything you do on Xbox 360.

    If you got a Premium 360 Package then i'm sure you got a long Gray cable, if so Plug it unto the back of the 360 and plug the other side of the cable unto the back of your modem.

    Thanks, sounds easy enough.

    But I'm worried about my router, will I have to change all the ports like you have to do with the PS2?(To hear through the mic)
