I recently got a PAL xbox360 but my gamertag is of a Canadian account as i had a UC console first...so my question is in order to get live membership, i should get a UK based live card or a UC based live card or they are generic??

I am looking to get back into the online gaming scene.

Here is my speedtest.net result. I am wondering if it would be sufficient to play CS:GO and Halo Reach online with ease. I am on Worldcall.

I might be wrong, but I believe I am on a 512KBs internet. My ping is always like that though. Usually from 35 -60.

I play with buddies in the states with ease and I'm on a similar connection.

Counter Strike: GO really sucks on the 360 btw... like REALLY REALLY sucks.

downloading XBOX 360 game via redeem code

Hello

I just recently bought an xbox 360 from US and brought it back to Pakistan. It had free 3 months live gold membership and also a game download card for the game Halo Reach. The card has a redeem code on it that has to be used in order to download the game. How can I download this game onto my xbox? Are there some particular settings that need to be used when setting up my xbox live account? Cuz when i tried to download it, a message came up saying that this game cannot be downloaded in your region.

I am totally new at this so please kindly give me a step by step guide on how to accomplish this feat. Thank you very much. I will be grateful :)

New Born to 360. Following are my problems:

1) Got my gamertag amm0iam85 and setted up my profile. No problem.
2) I have the Silver Membership but somehow I am not able to download Demos like Forza Horizon etc
3) I got 4 MB PTCL connection flawless. But the XBOX 360 keeps signing out after every 10 shity minutes. It is pissing me off.
4) Where can I check my Download status etc?
5) Where is the marketplace where I may check all DLCs for Forza Horizon etc. When I search it only Shows my Forza Horizon and not the other Forzas.

What shit is going on I am so pissed. Please help here :/

Check the connection cable which is linked from your router to your xbox modem ... happened to me before so i changed it and it solved my problem also run the connection test from the settings to further verify it ! .. as well as the demos are concerned they are saved in My Games .. in the Games section tab on your Xbox dashboard .. Hope this helps! ^_^

and there is no such market place for XLIVE though .. inplace of it .. there is a XBOX STORE where all the upcoming games reviews and in store games are available .. you can buy either buy them from the MS Microsoft points or via credit card! Demos are free to download! and same with the entertainment applications like youtube, facebook, crackle, sky etc are also available for free but as deep as you go in it .. there are gold subscriptions and other paid things they will be offering you! i suggest you explore all this by yourself then you'll understand! Xbox dashboard is sort of a puzzle but its not that hard to figure it out ;)

1. good for u.
2. some demos are exclusive to GOLD members for a limited time.ul have to wait it out.
3. the speed of ur BB doesn't not mean ul get less pings/disconnections.its a back-end problem with PTCL service.could also be a NAT issue.
4. once you start downloading an item, its status can be checked in "ACTIVE DOWNLOADS" area of XBOX LIVE GUIDE.
5. DLC can be accessed through in-game menus or Xbox 360 - Official Site - Xbox.com

hope this answers ur questions!!!
