What Is Xbox Live?
Using Xbox Live Arcade you can play online with other players, download demos, trailers and even full game.To start playing games on Xbox Live you need to pick a game tag(name) through which people will know you on that gaming platform.You can maintain a friend list so that you can add your real life friends and other players with whom you would like to play in future.
As Xbox live is no longer available on original Xbox console you need to have an Xbox 360 or Xbox One to use Xbox live along with good internet connectivity.As it is a subscription service you need to purchase it for either 1 month,3 months or 1 year.To purchase the subscription you can simply walk into a retail store or use your credit card on the console itself.
The service of Xbox Live is divided into two different levels.Using Xbox Live Marketplace (free level)you can download things, chat with friends, use Netflix, WWE Network, ESPN, other networks and even share your gaming profile but, cannot play games online.In order to play games online, you have to go for The Xbox Live Gold Level.
Xbox Live Subscription and Gift Cards
When a Microsoft game is tagged for $10 it means it is of $10 which makes an easy understanding.It indicates that instead of getting Microsoft points from a shop you can now buy gift cards from Microsoft in different amounts.You can purchase Xbox Live Gold subscription cards from the retail store.
It is highly advised to use the subscription and gift cards instead of directly using your credit card in Xbox Live account.
You don’t really have to give your credit card info so it is safe as there is nothing to get hacked.In addition to this Microsoft provides a high level of security on Xbox Live accounts and has updated security in last few year so there is no chance of getting hacked but to be safe don’t use it directly.
Some sort of payment information is asked in the account, so we advise and recommend to use PayPal.As PayPal provides a good level of security than Microsoft it is the most trustable.
