I have a $10 off coupon for anything at Best Buy because my birthday is in January....might use it on a new Xbox live Gold card.

Totally forgot that I got my membership last year around this time.  Just paid full price for XBox Live  ::)  I couldn't find anything online for under $50, and almost all of those were sold out or required shipping (and I wanted to play tonight).  Sucks paying full price, but worth the extra $10 not to dick around with it all night.

I'm thinking of picking up Lego Indian Jones for my son.  This is an older game so there are lots of used copies out there.  Anybody have any advice pro/con on buying used video games vs. buying new?

Make sure the disc isn't scratched and don't expect any included DLC codes to work.

Awesome, so with GTAIV, all I need is for them to make NCAA Football and LA Noire backwards compatible and I can toss my 360

In general used copies are generally ok but if a games real old look around for a new unsold copy for cheap even on eBay.  Just my preference.

So, has anyone else had issues with their XBOX Live Subscription?  Mine ran out at the end of the year, so a few weeks back I picked up a new one at full price.  Found today that XBOX charged my credit card twice.  I called up to get one payment cancelled and was presented with the offer to keep both payments and extend my sub to 2019.  I said no, but was asked THREE MORE TIMES.  Then they transferred me to someone who literally sounded like she was trying to stall to keep me on the line while they traced the number or robbed my garage.  At one point, she gave me a 25 digit code checking in on each individual number.  "The next letter that is in the code is going to be the letter J...for Joline, okay?  That is a J which is the next character in the series, so you will want to enter a J next, alright?  Let me know when you have entered the letter J and then we can advance to the next number or letter in the series."  Now re-read that at one-third speed and you have my call-in experience.  I'm a pretty patient guy, but was easily 60 seconds away from my head exploding.  Then it took her forever to tell me they completely cancelled my subscription(!) instead of just trimming off the extra year.  So, I had to get a cancellation notice, then re-register and enter a code for a "free" year of XBOX.  Which conveniently auto-renews.  Love my XBOX, but that CS is a joke.

I've been buying the Live subscription cards for about a year now for that very reason. My credit card expired last year and I forgot to update it with Live, so they charged me like $50, $10 for the month and then the rest were "nonpayment fees" or some BS. Then it refused to let me use a subscription card until I paid them. Took about an hour on the phone to get that mess cleared up.

Never put your credit card into an online subscription service considering how often the Playstation network has been hacked.

Have any of you bought the elite controller?  I'm wondering if there's any real reason to spend $130-$140 on one of them?  I don't play online... I just play single player games in the vein of Resident Evil, Gears of War, Skyrim, Bioshock...

If I don't even play online I cannot imagine a single reason to buy a controller that expensive.  The regularly priced ones I wait for sales even.

I got a good deal on the Elite version of the X-box which came with the controller.  It's nice, but I don't even use the extra paddles that come with it.  When it came time for me to get a second controller (to play Lego TFA with my son), I did not feel the need to purchase a second one.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is now free for Gold members through the end of the month. It's backwards-compatible on Xbox One.
