We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
Hi, a silver membership would also not allow you to play online. If you took up the offer of the free month trial when you set up your account on the console then yes you can play some but not all games online.
Some games require you to have a full Gold subscription, a trial is exactly what it says, a trial of some of the services on offer with Gold but not all.
