I think i'm gonna get a Xbox 360 for christmas and i have this one question for XBLA.
I've heard that you have to pay to get online with the 360, does this include XBLA?
And I'm not asking about the Microsoft point thing.

Nope, you're good. Anyone with a 360 and an internet connection can have a silver membership for free, which includes full access to the game marketplace.

The gold membership requires a monthly fee, and is mostly only needed to play multiplayer games online. A silver membership still lets you connect and send messages to friends. There are some special discounts and offers for gold members on XBLA, but otherwise you only need to pay for the Microsoft points to download the games.

When you sign up for Xbox LIVE from an Xbox 360 console, you get 1 month of free Xbox LIVE Gold with all it's features (Cross-game chat, party system, online play, matchmaking, Deal of the Week, 1 vs 100, early access to demos, etc.).

You can access the marketplace, and play online the enabled games (all games that are Games for Windows - LIVE on PC and have cross-platform play) with a Silver membership.

To go Gold, you can either pay monthly (which is the most expensive option), or yearly (you can get 1 year cards online from $35 and up, or buy directly from the Marketplace at $49.99). The deals are more than worth the price of admission, and you can get free Microsoft Points by playing 1 vs 100 on LIVE)

De Puerto Rico a Los Angeles, the New York al Dirrty South
Este guerrero latino es representa'o
Muero de pie hantes de vivir arrodillao
Y tu eres fake'ah, mas fake'ah que chinatown

@Luigi - I keep hearing that the wii online is worst than xbx and that's not true. I have seen both and they act pretty much the same. Sometimes better, sometimes don't. Is a matter of what kind of connection you have.

That's why I don't see why people pays for play online if the experience is the same.
