4.0 out of 5 stars Cheapest Live Subsription Option November 5, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
From what I can find this is the cheapest cost per month option available for a live gold subscription. Depending on the current price, it ranges from $2.9158 to $3.3325 per month. What I don't get is why this credit card sized subscription card comes in such wasteful packaging. It comes in a rather large plastic packaging, which requires it to be shipped in a box. You get free shipping, but how wasteful. Why doesn't amazon just offer the code online and not eat the cost of shipping and at the same time be a little greener?

I must be a glutton for punishment. Back in the day, I was the best gamer in the neighborhood. Oh, how times have changed.

With Xbox LIVE, I compete against other gamers across the globe (mostly adolescents), and they are much better than me. And they are mean - not only do they use a sniper rifle and kill my avatar with a headshot, but then they make fun of me via our headsets and use new insults that I've never even heard of. Such potty-mouths!

1.0 out of 5 stars The code didn't work April 21, 2014
Verified Purchase
I don't know if it was a slip up on xbox or the seller but the code did not work. Tried to enter twice via my xbox and then tried on my microsoft account and it still didn't work. Amazon was very quick to remedy the issue and refund my money.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's a card that lets you use Xbox Live for a year. Not much to say about it. Getting the card delivered is a much better price than what Microsoft charges for the exact same service. However, it's completely illogical how Amazon charges roughly $15 more for a code to be delivered virtually is beyond me. There is no cost of postage, and not even a cost to print the code itself. If someone from Amazon can please explain this anomaly, that would be great.

As for the Xbox Live experience itself, it has grown to become so much more user-friendly than a few years ago.

Features:

- You can create an online avatar that can be as close to or as different from your real-life self as you want.

- There is ESPN streaming (provided you have ESPN3) and Netflix instant streaming as well (again, you need to be a Netflix member).

- The Live Marketplace is now even more filled with content than ever before, ranging from themes to movies to well-made arcade games.

- Online gaming is a great experience. Playing against actual people extends the life of a game near-indefinitely.

- Kinect, which is a relatively new feature. It will surely be more fleshed out in the coming months with more content and features.

- Presumably many more things to come in the future.

All-in-all, are all these services worth getting for $60/year? In my opinion, no. As great as these features all are, I don't buy into how Microsoft needs to raise the price for any reason they state. So just buy the card from Amazon instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best way to purchase Xbox Live January 23, 2011
By R.B
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I wouldn't pay full price for Xbox Live, and luckily, thanks to these 12 month cards, I don't have to. If you are reading this, you probably don't need any convincing that Xbox Live is worth paying for, but you probably want to know why you wouldn't want to simply enter your credit card information onto your Xbox, and pay for Live that way. First of all, Xbox Live almost never goes on sale through Microsoft. If you are patient, you can get these cards for thirty, forty, and sometimes even fifty percent off through retailers such as Amazon. Secondly, if you need to cancel Xbox Live for any reason, it is difficult over the phone. For a device that is so connected and Web 2.0, it is odd that you can't simply hit a button on your console and cancel Xbox Live. Having to actually call customer support to cancel a digital subscription is medieval, leaning toward draconian. Once you finally get someone on the line (after waiting on hold), you'll be asked to explain why you want to cancel Xbox Live. You may get offers for a discounted subscription, or other sales pitches, when all you want is a no hassle way to end your subscription. With a pre-paid card, all you have to do is let your time expire,without the hassle of having to call someone.

All things considered, since you have to pay for Live (to play online, to watch Netflix content, etc), you might as well get a discount. This is the best way to make that happen.
