    you will need an xbox live subscription, you can get a free trial
    you need either the ethernet cable or a wireless adapter
    i'm sure game had an offer on the wireless adapter the other day when you buy something you get it cheaper or it was reduced to 40 quid can't quite remember sorry xxx

    The ethernet cable that came with it, a broadband connection & M$ Live Points.

    You don't need MS points - only if you want to purchase something online. You need a MS Gold subscription - you are entitled to a free month's Gold subscription, when you choose to make a SIlver subscription.

    Once you have your Xbox hooked up to the internet (just plugging an ethernet cable to your router / modem is the easiest), you need to choose the option on your 360 to Connect to Live (or something like that).

    It will then check if your gamertag is already taken, and if so, you'll need to make up a new one. When it asks if you want a Gold or Silver subscription, if you choose silver it will eventually say you can have a free month of Gold. You will then be able to play your games online.

    You might also need a hard drive to accomodate updates & add-ons to games or for downloading demos or arcade games etc...

    thanks everyone for the advice...... i have another question... technology is not my strong foot.

    In my sons bedroom he has a computer with his internet through a 3 network dongle... does that make any difference to the things i need..... also is a xbox hard drive an important piece to have. I want to make sure i get the right stuff and dont mess up... like usual

    Hiya. Yeah, I'm Chewyone and I just posted a good deal about Amazon (US). There's the 13 month xbox live for 27.41 which is better than what you wanted and about a quid more expensive. And it is to be bought new!!! :thumbsup:

    Have fun on Xbox Live!!!!!!

    Hi mate, for xbox live the 1 year subscription, this website is pretty good.

    gamingmall.com/det…tml

    £25.99 plus code is emailed to you within 24 hours :thumbsup:

    also for the wireless adapter, best place to look is if somebody is selling one on here cheap.

    Hope this helps mate
