What are the advantages of Live over XBConnect? Is it worth paying 60 euros for these advantages?
I searched but couldn't find a topic, there's so much topics with Live and XBConnect. If a thread like this already exists, could someone post the link to it? Thank you!

Live doesnt lag as much as XBC, also there are alot of games you can only play on Live (but at the same time there are alot of games you can only play on XBC, lol) apples and oranges really

Live is more accessible, downloadable content, less lag, headset support is more frequent, better friend support.
I prefer live, only game where you can always find a server thats any good on syslink is halo which doesnt support live anyway.

i think live is a lot better, there r tons of servers to choose from with no lag and the headset is awesome. On xbconnect the only game that is played on there is halo (mostly), and the servers are usually very laggy. Go for LIVE!!

xbox live is 10 times better than xbconnect but xbconnect is free so take your pick. But people on xbconnect only play like 4 games. Rb6, halo, and maybe 2 others. O i should mention 99% of peeps on xbc use it for halo. so if thats all you want to play then its perfect but if you want to play all the other games then live is the only real option.

Heres what I think:
They are both great but why not have them both. I have my xbox linked to my pc so I can switch between the two when I feel like it.
Xbox live: is alot more popular and is better in a few aspects, like: you cant play some games online, you have to pay for it, you nedd at least a 512k connection and you cant play modded xboxes on it because you get banned.
Xbconnect: is mainly used for playing Halo but I like playing T.H.U.G. on it mostly plus Serious Sam and Brute Force. You cant get banned for haveing a modded xbox so its good for people have broadband and want to play online with games running off backups/HD. You can have more 1 player on each xbox and you can have multiple xboxs linked and online people can join depending on your connection speed.
T.H.U.G. is great online with 8 players so get on there and play dudes.
