I want my visitors to pay me 20 for each game they play in my arcade.

Early on in the hype for XBL didn't they claim users would be able to generate content for games and make a profit from it?

Being the sad SOB that I am one of the most played games on my MAME machine is Lunar Lander so I'll likely be one of the 11 people worldwide who will pony up for that one.

Anyone can download a demo though, so what would be the point of visiting someone's arcade?

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

Ok...how do you take Zune video off of your xbox after installing it? I wanted to check it out, and it replaces the normal interface your xbox has for watching videos. It is a lot slower, which I could deal with, but it does not update when a video is done downloading from xbox, which forces you to leave the zune interface, and go back to your xbox dashboard, then click back into the video. This sucks, cause I usually download 4 or 5 video game videos at once, and like to watch them one after another. I can not find anything in the memory that would let me remove it...

I also want to know. I've only once tried that new interface and didn't like it.

Amazon had a year long membership card on sale for 35$. Order one and enjoy.

I think we've already established that full Gold membership is pay-only. You can get a full year for only $35 at Amazon, or if you were planning on buying something on the Marketplace anyway, you can get a year of Live + 1600 points ($20 value) for $50 at Costco.com with free shipping. Either is a pretty good deal. If you want all access, that's the way to go.

I also don't like the Zune marketplace interface as much as I liked the old video browsing.

Over Christmas, I used Last.fm on the 360 to play Christmas music by playing tag, well, "Christmas".

Now that music is in my Library. So I'll hear Suicidal Tendencies, Black Flag, then the Andrews Sisters. Is there any to not include that tag in my library?

My wife and son signed up for silver accounts and got the free month of gold to play 1 vs 100. Near the end of the month they also got an offer to get three months for $10. She wasn't sure she wanted a year since she only wanted live to play 1 vs 100 and bought the extra 3 months. She figured she didn't want to pay for too many months that 1 vs 100 wasn't running and I think the season ends fairly soon.

So if nothing else you can get the free month and then 3 more months if you want and only spend $10.

I don't think the free month of Gold is still offered.

When I got my Xbox and signed up for Live Silver I was never offered the one month of Gold. However, when my gf created her Silver account on my Xbox she was. So it doesn't seem to always offer it for some reason even though it's supposed to do so.

The first Halo doesn't have online play.

I could have sworn I played Halo 1 co-op with my friend in Pennsylvania on the old Xbox.

Splitscreen or over a LAN. Neither of which require Live Gold.


Spoiler:

Now, there was a tunneling program that would trick the Xbox into thinking folks online were on a LAN. However, there is no way Scott will work his way through that setup.
