With a Gold ($50 a year) membership you can play games online. With a Silver (free) membership you can download things from the marketplace and talk to people on your friend's list but you can't play online.

Go to gamestop and buy a 50$ card subscription...they are behind the counter so ask your clerk.

Yes, you need a gold membership to play xbox live. With a Gold membership you can play all games that are live on multiplayer. With a Silver you can talk to people on your friends list and access the marketplace.

that was a promotion, with TLAD everyone could, if its still on then i dont know but you cant play anything else other than lost planet and shadowrun.

Id say get the prepaid card for LIVE, keeps your personal info off the net, and if u use a credit card it can renew itself automaticly (lucky i caught it and called MS) got my money back but its easier to control.

Yes - you pay to play online. System link is free, but of course requires you to have 2 consoles, TVs, copies of the game etc. Games that support splitscreen are free to play with several people as long as you have enough controllers for everyone.
