Xbox Live lets members connect to the online community and create their own digital identity with an Xbox Live gamertag and personalized gamer profile. Members will be able to send and receive text and voice messages and join their friends on Xbox Live. Xbox Live Marketplace is the one-stop download center for additional game-related content like free trailers and demos as well as content that adds more to games, such as new levels, characters, and weapons. Gamers can also purchase and download fun, casual, and highly addictive Xbox Live Arcade games directly to their Xbox 360 system (additional fees may apply; hard drive or memory unit required for downloads).
The Gold Membership includes online multiplayer gaming, enhanced matchmaking and feedback tools, and exclusive privileges and rewards on Xbox Live Marketplace.
