My old 360 was ready to kick the bucket and I upgraded to the new 250GB unit. Since it has the wifi built in I logged onto XBox live for the first time.
I mostly play sports games (NHL, FIFA, Madden) either vs computer or a real live person sitting in the same room. I am not sure if I will use the XBox live enough to warrant getting a "Gold Membership" subscription. Other than playing head to head online, what else does the online gaming experience have to offer? Also, what are the Microsoft points used for?
