Hello All.
Hope you all are doing well.
This is my first thread on pakgamers.
My xbox one s is arriving in a couple of days and i am thinking of getting an xbox live gold membership.
So i have a few questions about xbox live and I hope you guys will help me with them
1) How to set up a Microsoft account? (Should I select a specific region?)
2) How to get the xbox live gold membership?
3) How can I load these membership cards that are available on different online shops in Pakistan?
4) After setting up my account and membership, can I buy games from xbox live with my credit card?
5) Is there any kind of lag while playing multiplayer? If yes then is there a way to fix it?

I hope you guys would help me as I'm new to this xbox ecosystem. Waiting for your feedback. Cheers!

    Exactly. Xbox is only relevant in a handful of countries, the US being one of them. It being the biggest market for consoles certainly helps.

    Besides, it's already being called the biggest console launch in history by business insiders. It already did the job.

    This means its not really worth it to jump ship on the PS5 just yet. Even the current gen will do fine until PS5 gets a really good exclusive
    Some may say PS5 already has a really good exclusive in Demons Souls at launch.

    Looks like Jason Schreier's "hold off" comment is equally applicable to PS5 :LOL:

    i'll probably get a PS5 in a year or two when the bigger exclusives like Ragnarok, Horizon are near (even though Horizon is already coming to PS4 and God of War is almost certainly too)
