If you still don't have Xbox LIVE, now is the time. Microsoft today announced two new "Starter Kits", both of which will get you on to LIVE lickety split. The first kit includes Project Gotham Racing 2 (our favorite racing game), a 12 month subscription, and a Communicator Headset for $69.99. The second kit includes demos of MechAssault 2 and Outrun 2, a three month Xbox LIVE subscription, and a Communicator Headset for $39.99. Xbox LIVE is very addicting. My favorite games to play online are Star Wars: Battlefront, Brothers in Arms, and Project Gotham Racing 2. If you have a job or a life, you may want to pass up this offer.
