You'll need to shell out 50 bucks (or less) for the Starter Kit, which includes a 12-month subscription to Xbox Live and the Communicator Headset. MS hasn't announced the subscription renewal rate.

Keep in mind that Microsoft controls the Xbox live servers, not Ritual. It's MS that people will be paying to play XB live, not us.

Looking at that, it seems to be a decent deal, for 50 bucks (assuming you already have a high speed net connection) you get hopefully a really good headset which in some cases cost more than 50 bucks, your own unique ID on the network system, and a FULL year of access.

I think the voice communication in CSX would be awesome... sure you can do it with the PC but it's a pain in the ass and you have to fight for bandwidth since it's going out on an open network (Internet). I'm guessing Microsoft's network is closed so it should be dedicated to only game traffic.

Volume 2 of the repackaged Xbox Live Starter Kit was released today. The only real difference is an updated demo disc that now includes Tetris Worlds and trial demos of MotoGP and MechAssault.
