Some Xbox games require XBOX LIVE GOLD to play. They will save "Xbox LIVE Gold required" on the box or the packaging or will show on the screen when you buy them.
However, there's no cancelling of LIVE accounts; instead, you can cancel your GOLD
subscription, or let it expire. You will always have an Xbox LIVE Free account tied to your Microsoft Account addresse once GOLD is cancelled or expires.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
