    silver accounts are free but you can only play online during special "demo" periods and thse show up very rarely and no one knows when they are going to happen. also silver accounts get content after gold does. gold is only $7 a month or $50 a year and you get to play online and get content before silver users. gold is the best one to get

    Get Gold not that Silver's bad, but without Gold you'll be like wtf is all the hype about my only reccomendation is don't even set up a LIVE account until you've got 2 or 3 good online games

    yea it is automaticly on your system when you sign up for the xbox live account!! I have a silver account but i will be upgrading to gold when i get more xbox 360 games so im not just wasting my money since i only have one online game and it is an xbox live arcade game that was free to download!

    did u even READ any of the posts?

    madden 08 isnt a special game where u get to play online with a silver account, no such thing exists. please re-read the posts above for clarification of what you can do with a Silver account

    you can play any game with a silver account. the only thing you cant do is play online (except during the special promotional periods which come and go randomly)

    Yes, I did read the posts. However, I heard from a friend that EA uses some other service that is not xbox live. I guess he was wrong. Your post clarified that.

    EA uses their own servers but it doesn't mean that you don't have to pay to play online. Silver is free with every account that is created and it lets you do is download some free demos and other crap. Gold is to play online. Period.

    ah yes, EA nation. i dont think EA has the right to chose wether to charge for online play or not, i'm pretty sure Microsoft controls that. but even if they didnt EA probably wouldnt chose to make it free.

    Getting the Gold Account for $50 each year is the most logical thing to do for a 360 user. For the quality of the online n the games, it's worth every penny.
