i was going to purchase a Kinect unit so i can video chat with friends, but then i read that feature is a Live feature, so i would have to pony up for the GOLD account to use the Kinect to video chat.
i saw a headset for i think it was 19.99$, so my question would be, could i still voice chat without a GOLD member account with my friends? or is voice chat via headset also part of the GOLD member ship to Live, because its an online service? my guess would be No, but i want to make sure.
i just got my 360 slim (4GB) a few days ago, so i am still learning about this xbox online stuff. i have been able to create my avatar, set up a connection to my main PC, and buy a few things on the marketplace with my so far free month.
what would be the best charging method? purchasing a charging station that plugs into a wall outlet, or using the play n charge kit/cable things? i have already bought 2 controllers preciously for my PC to use in platforming games n such, so im just reusing existing hardware at the moment to charge my controllers (the play n charge kits - i have 2 USB charge cables already)
