I'm just wondering because Sony cancelled my PSN account but I don't see anything about it on the Xbox site like Sony's. The reason I'm cancelling is because I sold them both, making the transition to the Wii U very soon when it comes out... I like my PS3, I won't lie, I kind of miss it, and I have a ton of games for my Xbox 360 but it just collected dust since Halo/Fable/Gears of War really isn't my thing. I found myself playing with my Wii more than both of them, guess I'll always be a Nintendo gamer at heart, ever since I was a little kid I have been one. Haha! If anyone could help me out that would be awesome.

In the case that an ordinary user can actually delete their account, you'd probably have to do it from a computer through xbox.com.

Maybe contact Microsoft themselves. I am sure they would have an answer.

Guess I'll have to. Surprised there is not one thing on their support page about it though, lol.

I haven't used Live myself, but I don't imagine much reason to cancel a free account, just not use it.
(though if you told them you sold the account, they'd probably be happy to delete it :D )

Since XBL accounts use Windows Live, I'd assume that deleting your Live account would take care of it.

Load up https://account.live.com/summarypage.aspx and click on 'Close Your Account.' That should help.

Figures.. it's Microsoft so of course it has to mess up and be a hassle. On my 5th Xbox 360 too, 3 from RRoDing and the other the disc drive failed.. still have the same Wii and PS3. :P I'm done with them, NOT getting the next Xbox. Anyway, mini rant done. This is the message it gave me.

Why do you even want to delete the account? I mean, obviously you'd want to cancel automatic transactions and remove credit card data, but once that's done why go through the hassle of trying to delete it when you can just simply not use it? I think I'm missing something here.

I had fun once and it was awful.
