  • Family Center - a single, easy to use, destination for Family Settings and account management, accessible on the Xbox dashboard and on Xbox.com.
  • The primary account member has the ability to purchase and dispense Microsoft Points to other Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack members.
  • Activity monitoring reports viewable on Xbox.com to help encourage discussions about safer more balanced gaming and entertainment habits.
  • Simplified billing that applies all purchase charges to the primary account holder’s billing account and the ability to authorize purchases, helping to manage the family’s entertainment budget.

Sounds interesting. How about a package were you get 2 accounts. I only have 2 people that use the xbox in my house and one account. It’d be good to buy a second account that was linked like the way described above byt for a discounted price this way you can have a main account and a spare for friends/ family who may not play regularly.

My family like watching Coronation Street. I don’t think they are ready for xbox live.

MS Xbox 360 family pack is so very cool. We already have this and we are always playing inside the house. I love it thanks

Really? I disagree, I think you may perhaps be a spammy bot.

A family pack for the robot and three little batteries.
