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!
Can I buy an Xbox Live Gold membership with the currency in my Microsoft account? The currency in your Microsoft account
can’t be used to buy an Xbox Live Gold membership at this time. The thing to remember is that the currency in your Microsoft account
can "ONLY" be used to purchase Digital Content and not An Xbox Live Subscription. It`s a subscription and it`s not a DLC Or a Game or New avatar Clothes and more. It`s a product. A Subscription.
The currency in your Microsoft account can
Rent HD movies and buy TV shows, and with Kinect, your voice is the remote control.
Download arcade and full Xbox games.
Keep games fresh with new map packs, new songs and workouts
Get new items and avatar props for your Xbox Avatar Profile
The thing to remember is that the currency in your Microsoft account can only be used to purchase digital content and not subscriptions to Xbox live.
