    You have to get the Gold membership to be able to play multiplayer matchmade games... the points are the currency of the Xbox... they can buy picture packs, new maps for games, arcade games like uno and poker, you can even rent movies with the points...

    The gold membership will run you about $50 a year... but it is WELL WORTH IT

    Microsoft points are what you use to buy stuff off the Xbox Live Martketplace. You can buy movies, games, and ect.

    You may need to buy a router if you can't plug your ethernet cable directly to your modem. If you want to play online (Silver you can only talk to people and buy stuff online) you will have to buy a Gold Membership which is $50.00 for a year, and $20.00 for three months. You can either buy a card from EBgames or anywhere really or you can use a credit card directly through Microsoft.

    Hope I helped.
