    Quick gamertag question

    Just a quick question lads about the gamertag. Is there anyway that you can change your gamertag by yourself?. Going into the gamertag options, i cant see anywhere where you could change your name should you want to.

    Actually i want to change my name, really should have thought about picking a better name tbh.

    So can i do it myself or do i have to get in touch with M$???

    TIA:)

    I can't remmeber exactly where it is but you can do it from your 360 and it costs 800 points if I remember correctly.

    Press the guide button, it's under there somewhere.

    You can change everything bar your actual NAME for free. For example im "Ultra Extreme" and to change that to "Lilly Mcspriggins" Would cost 800points which aint bad considering and i mean lets face it people wont trade names to confuse people etc

    LOL no :D

    The marketplace points (which you buy and in turn use them for Live arcade games etc.) are totally different to gamerscore points, which purely show your achievements status from games you have played.

    It's about £6 to change, you might be able to convince the MS support desk (0800 587 1102) to change it for free if you say you've been subject to racism, worked perfectly on the original Xbox!

    Cheers fellas

    Just spent a good hr or so setting up my lcd tv only to find the damn thing has 3 pretty deep scratches on the panel..not on the lcd panel. Anyways will have to ring them up tommorrow and get it exchanged, am not happy as it took them nearly 3 weeks to deliver the damn thing to me in the first place :mad:

    Anyways ive connected the xbox to it and my GOD!!!!! what a lovely sight to see...everything so clean and clear...no more squinting at my normal sony tv lol:p

    It does indeed cost gamerpoints, because i bought my 360 secondhand and it came with 8months live gold remaining i wanted to keep it so had to cough up the cash.

    Gamerpoints are in game achievements.
    Microsoft points are "spendable" and purchased for cash.

    A samsung 32" jobbie....model number is LE32R74BDX Virii. Its this years model so the newest one out and have heard very good things about it. Got it for about £800 and it took them nearly 3 weeks to deliver it as they had problems sourcing one.

    Only thing that really annoys me about it is that my one came with a few deep scratches in the panel and they are quite noticeable. So am going to ring them up tommorrow morning and get them to send me a new one without any cosmetic scratches and pick this one at the same time.

    Cool. I take it it is the 8ms panel? I am thinking about getting one myself for my spare room - I anticipate the odd night in the spare room soon as the latest mini-me is due mid August.
    Did you get it via a competitor or is it a mntionable store?

    Yup 8ms panel it is, i definitely recommend getting one...very vibrant and sharp colours but then its the first lcd tv which is hd that i have ever owned bar my 21" tft screen that i use at home with my main pc.

    Sadly they do a few things that Ocuk do ie cameras and mp3 players so cant really say the name.
