I have a question that I don't really know the answer to. I have an unused 12 month xbox live subscription card, from my original xbox ( the very 1st console released by microsoft, with the big duke controllers ) I found while cleaning out my storage unit. I plan to use it within the next couple of days when my current 12 month xbox live subscription expires. But before I do I've looked over the 12 month sub' card to make sure there weren't any fine print / and or expiration date on it... it has neither of these on it. So I thereby deduce that it should still be a valid card with the value of a 12 month xbox live sub'. If for any reason anyone think this may not work, or has a difference of an opinion to my above statement, please feel free to leave your comments. Thanks and happy holidays to all.
