2 questions about the 360

Hi, I am planning to buy the xbox 360 console and I have 2 questions:

 

1. Is Xbox LIVE necessary for playing multiplayer on games? I hope not, because it is not yet supported in my country.

2. I heard you have to pay a monthly fee for membership in the Xbox LIVE. Is this correct?

Xbox Live Gold membership is needed for playing multiplayer with others online. It is not necessary for splitscreen or system-link.

Xbox Live Gold requires you to pay to play with others online, yes. Xbox Live Silver is free. Silver lets you download and use the xbox marketplace, but you will not be able to play with others online.

It depends on the region. In the US it's $10/month.
