Need help please Xbox Live

I'm getting an xbox one launch day, I have an xbox 360 that I've never connected to xbox live.

I want to connect to xbox live on my 360 tomorrow to install various DLC I've collected from pre-ordering games (e.g. the blimp in GTA V), and to keep my gamer score.

Two questions;

I used my email to sign up to this website and it assigned me 'CitedMoss00759', does this mean my email address is permanently associated with that as a gamer tag which has no gamer score or real identity?

I heard live carries over between consoles, so I can have xbox live on both with the same gamer tag, same gamer score and same subscription.

How do I achieve this?

So I can use a pre-paid xbox live card to get live on my 360 and be able to keep all of my gamer score, then use that log in also on xbox one.

Will I need a new email address to activate live on my 360 because I used my current email address to sign up to this website and so have a 0 gamerscore associated to it?

Hi Moss,

Yes, the pre-paid card should get you setup.  

As for the email and the '0' gamerscore, that is because you signed in with an email address different than the one attached to your original account. When you sign in with a new email, an auto-generated gamertag is created, which CitedMoss00759 is.

Hope that clears things up, and let us know if you have anymore questions.
