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!
OK, I'm total newb to x-box. Can some clarify what is free and what is not with x-box live. Of course you pay for movies, games add-ons etc but what if I want to play on-line with a friend for example - do I have to pay for that privilege or what?
