Xbox live question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Will the xbox live gold subscription cards work with the original xbox.
I need to get my account back so I got a 3-month at wally world. They don't have original xbox live cards there.

I've tried account recovery and it doesn't want to cooperate.

Okay...did some research on xbox.com and found out that it doesn't work.

All Live accounts automatically became Gold accounts when the 360 launched, whether you had a 360 or not. So the subscription cards you buy in the store should work with an XBOX as well as an XBOX360.

However, I will say that subscription cards may not work. I can't find a definitive answer on xbox.com and my Live account is set to automatically renew so I don't use subscription cards. You should call 1.800.4MY.XBOX and specifically ask them if an XBOX360 branded subscription card will work with an XBOX.

Also, are you trying to reactivate an account you stopped paying for? Unless the policy has changed, you cannot reopen an expired account. You will have to create a new Live account/ gamertag.
