    Cheapest way to get 12 Months of Xbox Live?

    Hi all,
    Saw the deal posted yesterday, it mentioned that it might be cheaper to order from Littlewoods using vouchers... Does anyone know which vouchers I can use to get the lowest price, or does anyone know a cheaper place to get it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sell the Xbox and any games you have on ebay, and use the money and the subsciption you would pay to buy a Platstation 3, it doesn't charge for online access like Xbox do.

    Plus if you trade it in for a PS3 it will double up as a George foreman grill so you can cook your breakfast on it whilst playing Motorstorm. Sweet :thumbsup:

    You missed a few steps off the end of that plan, in full, it'd be:
    Sell Xbox
    Spend £400 on a PS3 with the only worthwhile exclusive title, Motorstorm
    Play Motorstorm
    After 5 minutes, realise that I'd be having more fun if I was playing Excite Truck
    Turn off PS3
    Turn on Wii
    Play Excite Truck
    Wait until October for a decent new game to come out, and then realise that the same game is being released on Xbox anyway.

    Anyone who would seriously recommend buying a PS3 at this point must be worried that third parties are going to completely drop support for it soon unless they can convince as many people as possible to buy one.

    So... anywhere I can get cheap Xbox live?

    Cheapest way is to create a new gamertag every month. Every gamertag gets one month free gold membership, if you arent too bothered about achievements etc this is an easy way to stay gaming online.

    The geeky bbc programme on at silly o'clock this morning featured a chap from Sony who was saying that they were going to knock £100 off the price of a PS3 in a few months.

    Yer that was quite random now i think about it

    DONT DO THATLITTLEWOODS THING!

    IT takes a month to get delivered and also if you use voucher codes and ur not a little woods member they have the right to charge full

    brum

    :? not sure how this helps reduce the cost of xbox live subs??


    There was a discussion going on relating to PS3's. PS3 allows you to play online for free, so I guess my post wasn't massively off topic or particularly random, is it honestly worth having a grumble over though?:whistling:

    i have never had a problem with these codes, however i only order every now and then and use littlewoods, littlewoods direct , great universal and marshall ward who are all part of the same group but the codes can all be used with. i only use them when there is a sale on and i want some new trainers ( im wearing my onitsuka tiger trainers now (£20)) from littlewoods direct.

    however, if you find you have been charged the full amount, refuse to take delivery and you get a refund, no problem really. i guess it depends how much you want to save compared to how long it takes to get the item. 4 weeks is a long time to wait, however some people appear to get their codes alot quicker than 4 weeks.

    i have only ever used my live account about 10 times although it only cost £16 for the year.

    I only got 3 on my xbox free ones

    yes, you only get to register 3 gamertags on each console for 1 months free gold membership, after that each gamertag you make will be free (but its the silver membership)

    i got my 13month subscription code off ebay not too long ago for about £12.50 - downside was you had to register with an american address (its not that hard to do) and you can't download some content - ie. music videos or movies because of the region licencing differences. you can get around this however if you spoof the IP of your xbox console to an american address, but this might be too much hassle for some people.

    edit; Item number: 120144892596 is the auction I got mine from, well same seller anyway. she usually sends the codes out about an hour after you've paid for it!

    I just had a look on her auction and it states that the voucher is for new Xbox Live accounts only. Was this the case with your purchase or were you able to apply it to an existing account?

    Yeah, what's the cheapest way to get a 12m renewal? I wanna keep my gamertag

    The littlewoods codes look a bit dubious, in that there's loadsa reports around this forum that they won't honour them. And 4 weeks lead time! :?

    I agree with Dandocs suggestion - get the live vision bundle for £45, sell the headset and camera and maybe get £15-£20 for them....

    or if you have the luck of the gods - if you ever see an xbox live starter pack with 12 months xbox live for the original xbox going cheap BUY IT......(they are amazingly rare these days but sometimes pop up)

    Hi Carlson2000,

    Just a quick question re getting the xbox live gold subscription from the states, can you still play games and talk with your UK mates as before ?

    yeah, you have to make a brand new account for it, but wasn't much trouble for me as i hardly used my old one!


    and aty, yes, works fine for playing/conversing with UK/USA/rest of europe/anyone really!

    could someone give anymore details about registering a US account? does that just mean all you have to do is when selecting country just select US? is itr that easy? i dont mind doing this as i couldnt care less about the points and im on my 2nd free month already

    thanks

    Gai189 is right original XBOX live subscriptions work, so if you see one buy it cheap as it works!

    I found some eBay original live starter kits, but they're comparatively the same price. Also, do they allow for renewel? "Starter kit" suggests they only work for new accounts?

    i think that offer from game by dandoc is the best one, quick delivery as well littlewoods are terrible for delivering stuff. id say go for game

    They will work but if you are paying the same price you might as well get the subscription only. Unless you want the game and headset that come with the starter kit.....
    Some shops were selling off the starter kits cheap eg £9.99 but that was 6 months ago...

    I managed to get one for £20 and the other £10 and both codes worked to give me 2 years subscription.

    £50 in gamestation, with two arcades games adn xbl camera.
