    This is an exceptional value.

    I recently purchased an XBOX 360 Arcade, and I got into XBOX Live with the free month of Gold. I loved it so much I began looking around for some good deals on Live 12 month Gold cards on Amazon. I stumbled across this bundle, and decided that for only $8.99 more than buying a year of Live Gold directly through my 360 - I'd give this a shot because of all of the great extras.

    Let me run down the items included and what I think of them:

    12 Month Gold Subscription Card:
    This is not a 12 Month + 1 free card like the other sold on Amazon - this is strictly 12 months, which is fine by me, I got my first month free of charge just for signing up.

    XBOX 360 Live Chat Pad:
    This device clips on seamlessly to your XBOX 360 controller, and sits in a position that is very convenient and accessible to use. It is back lit, and works very well for typing messages, or communicating with MSN Messenger contacts if you are using XBOX Live Gold on your 360. It even has a shortcut button to pull up your messenger contacts so you can start chatting right away. The buttons have a nice tactile 'click' to them, but they're not too firm. The device also has a headset connector port on the bottom for use with the included XBOX 360 communicator headset. (NOTE: this chat pad headset port will not work with the original launch model communicator headsets that had the mute and volume controls on the connector).

    XBOX 360 Communicator Headset:
    I have no issues at all with this headset. I also have a launch model one without the inline volume control and mute switch that this newer model has, and I have to say I much prefer this newer model.

    Just when my subscription to Live! was about to run out, I caught this little bargain. Snap it up quick while it's still around. For slightly more than the years cost, you'll get the chatpad, (AWESOME) a new (And DIFFERENT) headset and a game. I didn't think I'd like or use the chatpad, but oh yes, I like it! It lights up so you can type in the dark with absolutely no problem, and you'll text as quick as you can talk with just a few minutes practice.
    A real bargain!

    I was going to buy the live card and headset seperately for my nephews birthday, which wouldve costed me around $60.00. Spending an extra $10.00 he gets a game and the text pad. This is a great package for you xbox live gamers, gives you everything you need for a great price.

    Okay, so I will start out by giving you a little background here. I am a gold member of Xbox Live previous to purchasing this package. My subscription was running out early 2010 and I needed to renew. I got an email from Microsoft (M$) regarding an automatic renewal using the credit card I have on file with them. I like to buy the points to purchase DLC (downloadable content to those who don't know all of these acronyms yet). I am not a fan of auto-renew, not because of the ease, but because M$ is not the best deal in town for their own service.

    Generally, you can find 12-Month subscription cards for less than the $49.99 M$ will charge you. In fact, Amazon and Walmart (am I allowed to say that?) had a price war recently where the 12-Month card went all the way down to $30! So, I figured if I was going to spend that kind of money, what else can I get?

    I found this package and figured it was time to add to my xbox toys. I had a headset already, as well as PGR 4 (Project Gotham Racing 4, but the 12-month card and the text pad were new to the collection. So, I purchased the bundle. Overall, if you don't have any of the stuff in the package, it's a great thing to have. I am going to break it down piece by piece for future buyers:

    -12-Month Subscription - Xbox Live is great. I can't say enough about it. The only negative is the yearly price. Others do not charge to use their system to play games online. M$ does. I feel it's worth it still, but I have hopes that one day it will be closer to that $30 mark direct from M$. This is why the package did not get a 5-star rating.

    -Headset - This is the same headset you get with every console. It's your basic headset but it does the job. It's certainly not a Turtle Beach headset, but it's good!

    If you price out the individual items in this kit it is well worth the price. MSRP on a 12 month Live subscription is $50 alone, so for another $20 (MSRP of $70) to get a headset, keyboard, and Project Gotham Racing is a steal. Of course Amazon's price is better than MSRP so you save even more. Even if you aren't interested in the game, you still get a great deal for the Gold membership, keyboard, and headset.

    Trying to play a voice enabled game without a headset is torture. It is extremely frustrating hearing other players and not being able to talk back to them. Typing a message is also painfully slow using the on-screen keyboard. If you're going to play on Xbox Live, you need this kit to start out with as it will get you started with everything you need at a very good deal.
