The xbox live gamertag system is the WORST I've ever seen for 3 simply reasons:
- You cannot use symbols like underscores, points etc.
-You cannot create tags already used by Zune, Microsoft Games and all the other bullsheep that have nothing to do with xbox live.
-This world is plenty of yoinking yoink who create original gamertags that will never be used. Since Microsoft knows that, why the hell do we have to wait 7 years of non-activity to reclaim them? It's a ridiculous amount of time. I mean in 7 years I'll probably get married!
Because of these reasons the only way to get the gamertag you want is to put yoinking random numbers or letters somewhere in your name just like that
