IT IS AMAZING. The $50 a year a pay turns out to be worth every single penny. I very much advise you to get it.

You buy things with Microsoft Points. You can buy the points with a credit card or buy the pre-paided cards in a store.

You mean for the dowloadable content that costs money? Yeah you use a credit card. They don't ever force you to buy anything though.

Demo's are free, theres a lot of free content on xbox live. Its a great system that you meet friends in and such. I never would go to any other system after using Xbox live.

XBL is the BEST online gaming service around.  The only thing about it (and every other online service) is the annoying kids, sexists, racists and homophobes who seem to feel liberated in the autonomy of cyberspace. Aside from that, the content is wonderful, the setup is a snap, the functionality is top-notch, nobody else can match the server level/upkeep, and the IS functionality is far superior to others.. IMO. Game on!

How do you  pay them the money ? is it by using credit cards ?

You pay $20 bucks in the Retail store to get *Microsoft Point Card.It contains 1600 MS points and they let you accsess to Themes Pictures Movies etc etc...Answer to your question in "Should i get live" i say Yes its the homebase of Microsoft its what makes the Xbox stand so strong.

xbox live is great. pros are that it makes games last longer as long as they have some kind of multiplayer, you can download some really great games from the arcade, download new maps or skins or game modes for games, and of course download demos. the only possible negative is that it costs money.

It's ok, I guess. Best online service for consoles, that's for sure. Whether it's great or not is for you to find out. I'm in the minority of XBL users who don't think it's all that.

Yes. Best online you can get for a console, but it's $50 a year. Not much for what you get, but the "free" thing is a big sell for a lot of people. But MS runs a tighter ship than Sony and it actually works unlike Nintendo's online (which hopefully will be made right by the time Super Smash Bros comes out, but that's getting off topic).

The themes and gamerpics cost money, and aren't worth it so I'd pass on those. Use your points for downloadable content like Oblivion's Shivering Isles expansion or good XBLA games like the upcoming Bomberman Live. You get MS points with a debit or credit card -- but you can also buy pre-paid cards in the store. You can get all this without paying for an XBL account, though. The "gold" (read: paying) account gets you the best online multiplayer in the business (clutch for adding retail value to your games) and early access to a lot of content.

 Highly recommended. Definitely rounds out the Xbox 360 experience. $50 a year. If you don't like it, don't sign up for another year. Don't pay by month, it's more expensive. You'll love it.
