I in currys today (gateshead) and there were about 8 xbox live starter kits in for £14.97 on the floor in the gaming section.

I bought one and was tempted to be greedy and get more but I thought I would leave it to you lot to get the rest!

I remember people mentioning currys having these kits in but i think that they were 20 or 30 pounds.

Thanks,

Peter

Aren't those just for the "old" xbox?

They apparently work on 360s. I am looking for a old headset for my xbox1 anyway, and they cost £15-20 on there own.

I've got one, £3.50 including P&P if you want it?

I have an Xbox 1 headset that you can have if you want it? £1 paypal to cover postage and its yours. Its brand new and sealed.

Edit... scrap that...

I cant find it at the mo. Will let you know if I do find it tho

Picked up Fifa 2005 starter kit for £9.99 in Toys r us. It was the last one in that store but check around you might get lucky.

You have a PM.

Which store was this in pet3r? Do you have the SKU code from the receipt?

Have you got the 6 digit product code from the reciept?

I went to Currys in Valley Park Croydon, that had loads of these. Though when I checked through the boxes all the subscription cards had been pilfered. That could just be Croydon for you, but best check...

I went to ToysRus instead that do Forza Motorsport 12 month Live kit with headset for the xbox at half price for £19.99. The games just a bonus really.

Does Forza Motorsport state on the front of it has 12 months free in it? I could have picked this up in toys rus but the back of box suggested that to play the game live I would have to subscribed.

You need to get the Forza Xbox live starter kit. This will say on the pack that it includes 12 months Xbox Live subscription, communicator headset and the game.

Toys R Us do sell a Forza Motorsport which says it is "online enabled" for £9.99 but this doesn't include the 12 months sub.

Yep, the starter kit has a card enclosed which will work with existing Live accounts as it works as a prepaid card. It will add 12 months onto your current subscription. :thumbsup:

Had a months free with live vision camera, but this appears to want we me to register as new member so did not proceed. I am registered with a month remaining.

I've previously purchased the Forza starter kit and just got the Fifa starter kit. I own a 360 and never had a Xbox live account and both the codes worked fine for me.

If the box is not sealed when you buy it make sure it contains the "scratch" card that gives the 25 character code.
Cheers

Comet stores were selling the xbox live starter kit with a game of some description for £10 in store only 2 days ago.

Yep Gari189 you are spot on I purchased starter kit from Toy R us for 19.99 which contained scratch card, thankfully it worked fine, half price is good enough for me, did check local Comet and Currys in the Paisley / Braehead area with no joy.

Now got a useless headset, doubt I would get much on ebay for this.

At toys r us at govan/glasgow i got 6 xbox live starter kits for £9.99 each, 5 fifa 2005 ones and 1 halo 2.I used the 12 month code on my 360 and i am now covered for live till april 2008!
Sold the other 5 fifa kits on ebay for £35 EACH, then sold the halo 2 and headset on ebay for £10.50! RESULT!!!!
The guy at the games collection was well annoyed because i was buying them all LOL.
Went up again yesterday and all i could see was normal xbox starter kits for £19.99, still a nice price for 12 months of live, also checked toys r us at the forge in parkhead/glasgow but they didnt have any xbox 1 stuff.
Seems these starter kits are being sold off EVERYWHERE as the 360 becomes the standard console from microsoft and the xbox 1 is phased out.
I ve seen many posts saying the xbox 1 starter kits dont work on the 360, or they have to be registered on the xbox 1, THIS IS ALL WRONG!
There is only ONE xbox live, and it's an on-line service that spans over xbox1 & xbox 360 allowing you to play games on xbox live.
So basically if you've got a xbox/360 and see a kit for £9.99 GRAB it.

I thought these things had an expiry date?

Looked all over town today for one of these but no luck


If anyone would be kind enough to grab me a starter kit and email me to the code, I'll pay you what it cost, and you can keep the game/headset/whatever comes with it!

Dan Ill dodge out tomorrow for you, wish me luck!

Yeah, I'll also pay a few pounds to anyone who can grab me one and PM the code for your trouble.

The 48 hour and 1 month codes, DO EXPIRE, and have the expiry date printed on them.

However the 12 month xbox live prepaid cards DO NOT EXPIRE!!

I see.
Thanks

Spot on ywith your comment there is only one xbox live I was a bit worried, but had no problems.

Thanks for leaving me the £19.99 deal at TRus. Did you try any local Currys for their £7.49 deal? Breahead had none.

OH DAN7 ???? come out come out whereever you are,...Uncle Necro has been out and found something for you!!!!

Aren't those just for the "old" xbox?



They do work on the xbox 360, I bought one a few months ago from currys for £14.99

I hope I'm not going to get shot down in flames for asking, but can someone please advise if these be used to extend an existing Xbox 360 Live Gold subscription?

@ feed_me_chocs they can

Cheers mate - much appreciated. Just gotta try and track a couple of them down now :thumbsup:

Dan07 . Whats the point of asking for someone to go and get one for you and then dont reply when someone goes out of his way and actually gets one for you on trust for you...?

I even found you posting on threads about live trying to get one!!!

Thats damn ungrateful!!
