Xbox LIVE is an online gaming service from Microsoft that extends the power of the company's Microsoft Xbox 360 gaming platform by connecting users to other Xbox LIVE subscribers for multiplayer gaming and social networking as well as making a wide variety of Internet-enabled content available to its users.
With Xbox LIVE users can play their Xbox 360 games online with friends and other gamers, connect to Facebook and Twitter, chat and text with friends, watch streamed movies and TV shows in High Definition, watch live sports, play personalized music from Zune and other sources, and more.
Microsoft offers a free subscription option for Xbox LIVE with limited functionality (no online multiplayer gaming support, for example), while Gold and Family Plan memberships are available for $69 and $99 a year, respectively. Xbox LIVE is also available through Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system as Xbox LIVE Mobile.
