Xbox Live is an online gaming service that lets you play multiplayer Xbox games on the Internet via broadband. (something like cable or DSL - dial-up isn't fast enough.) That's gaming service. Gaming. Got that? We're not here to get you shopping auction sites, checking news headlines, or emailing your dear old granny. What you can do is play great games with people everywhere. It's like having a couch of friends ready to get their game on. You can chat with them while you play, no matter where they live You can download new levels and items to keep everything fresh. It's all about the games.
