xbox live 12 month subscription bundle

Found 2nd May 2007
I'm looking for a decent value way of getting a new 12 month subscription. Whether that be with the camera, wireless headset or a retail game.

I'm aware of Microsoft bundled Live Camera/Wired Headset/Arcade Game for around £50, But what I was wondering is if anyone has come across any other bundles or multibuy offers whereby I get a few things and get a chunk knocked off?

Thanks in advance.

I've also been trying to get some xbox live sub at a decent price - tried ebay but they continually go for around £30 which is too close to the normal price. If I find anything I'll post ch8rt - if you could do the same it would be great

count me in too!

I think I may end up going for the camera, I liked the game bundles on the original xbox cause just buying a 12 month subscription on its own feels a bit empty?

Maybe there are some discount codes around for some retailers?

I decided to create a new gamertag (not bothered about gamerscore) and register it as a USA player then bought a code off the American Ebay for £23. It makes no difference when playing games and if it means I can continually get nearly half price Live I'll be happy.

Do you not need a US Credit Card though?

ppl sell US 12mnth live codes on fleasebay all the time bud

The only things that have to be USA are the address and the Origin when setting up the new Gamertag. No credit card details go anywhere near Xbox Live cos you're paying by 'Redeem a code'.

Just bought it through the US version of Ebay and paid by Paypal.

I just set one up using a Hotel address I stayed at last year, bought a code for $45 (£22) and it's topped up till next August 2008

What if you already have a UK gamertag and don't really fancy setting up a new one? Can you use european codes or something?

you can only use PAL codes on PAL gamertags. the chap above set up a new US gamertag to us a US code.

I'm hoping for another LX direct code at some point.

LX Direct?

Can you potentially use PAL codes from any PAL region then? If so, which is the cheapest?

Yep that's right

I intend using my Pal gamertag for offline use so I don't lose my achievements and saves (and downloads) and then using my US tag for online play. I guess the major drawback is losing you're online rep but cheap Live was my driving factor as my son and I use it a fair bit.

I used a US xbox live code before from ebay for 20 quid. they work fine.

The only thing that wont work is MS Points due to currency rates etc they wont allow it

I believe its a fairly new thing to region lock the codes. So chances are you got one before then
