    The 1 month games pass is a subscription service that gives you access to a ton of games from Microsoft, can play all to your hearts content.

    If you want Xbox Live you need an Xbox Live subscription, it works out cheaper to get a 12 month sub. All depends if theres months where you wouldn't be playing Gears of War ? If there would be then buy a 3 month subscription.

    12 month is £36 here https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/memberships, do not pay £40, it can be found cheaper than £36 but it depends on time of year.
    Ive used that site before, you get the code in your cd keys account once you login.

    Just under £40 from amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Xbox-Live-Month-Membership-Download/dp/B00DR1TFM8/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1514449934&sr= 1-1&keywords=xbox+live+gold+12+months if its easier.

    You enter the code you get emailed at xbox.com,
    Login there then click on your account photo on top right corner and go for redeem code and enter the code.

    Amazon used to give you a link to the xbox page to enter the code.

    Excellent detailed reply.
    Thanks for the subs reminder since 360 years 2009-2011
    Haven!!!8217;t yet used cd keys, though@36 12 mths very tempting.
    Looking forward to purchasing city skylines in a few weeks-hopefully download rather than disc.
    6 mth option looks not bad at all.

    Not sure if its still there but a couple of day ago I took on the offer of £1 for xbox live for a month, then it turns into subscription unless you cancel.

    This gives me a month to do what I want until I cancel that subscription and buy a years worth.
    Either that or a month to get the game im playing out of my system and I can go back to the pc.

    I go for a 12 month personally.

    You can sort your sub out before you get the console and download the free games so when you set your console up the games download straight away.

    FWIW I just bought 6 months from Game for £14.99

    They have an offer in store for a 3 month xbl code for £14.99 and a BOGOF so I got 2 codes.

    Thats me OK for the next 6 months.
    Even buying 2 pairs (4xcode) will be cheaper than current online prices.

    Thanks for this, just ordered mine from Amazon and they arrived almost instantly. Expires 20th March, just wondering if that applies ONLY to the free one (which is clearly marked), or to both. Safest thing to do is just enter both and they will stack, to make 6 months, but I'd rather use 3 months now, 3 months later...
