360 live account

Hey guys, i was wondering if there was a way to merge my 360 live account and my offline account? I want to do some things over live with forza 2, but all my saved stuff is on my offline profile. How do i do this? I read the microsoft.com thing, but its quite confusing since they named all their profiles the same in the example, its hard to follow.

Someone please explain?

Thanks

if you have a silver account, you just get a gold account and you will be able to use the same gamer tag and keep all the info from your silver account.

I have a gold account, but none of my saved games show up on my gold account. They only show up on my other account, which is offline only. How do i get the offline ones to show up on the gold account?

Answer:
You take your offline account "steve" and pay 60$ to make it online. However I would recommend you do this after your current Gold account, "livegamer123" expires (so your not paying for two accounts and only using one). Also you'll have to repick a new gamertag ("Steve" becomes "livegamer234") and then you just ignore your current gold account, "livegamer123", after it drops down to silver.



I wanted to make a new thread about it but I might as well post it here:
Here is what I always wonderd, Xbox live has 6 (now 7 as of this E3) million users online. But how many of those are actually Active Gold and Active Silver. Because I know I've got about 5 gamertags, of which I'm only using 1 but I'm assuming Microsoft counts it as 5.

UltraLobster <Last free month, Current 360 gamertag Silver
PS3OwnsThis < One month free gold (comes with 360) Expired/Silver
PokemonRancher < One month free gold (comes with 360) Expired/Silver
SuperChicken69 < Two month free card on Xbox. Not sure what happened with this. Expired
SuperChicken70 < Two month free card autorenewed to full year on Xbox. Not sure what happened with this. Expired

So yeah, those 7 million is really... *shrugs*

Sony's is a little more accurate because most people have only one (Aside from Scud and others with a Jap and Europe account as well) account. Nintendo is just worry about the soccer mom population that are now excited to dance and who have no idea what a Nintendo press conference is.

I use the free coupons and for the original xbox they couldn't stack onto one another, so I'd be forced to make a new gamertag each time. As for the 360 you get 3 free one month gold memberships but you need to make a new gamertag for each. I also got fucked on original xbox because it automatically renewed me for a year (You had to call in and manually cancel your account) and it pissed me off because I had one more free two month card (Yeah, remember when you got a two months card instead of two day card) but it expired by the time that extra year renew was up.

if you could transfer your saves to another account you could cheat your gamerscore by taking all of your friends save games and boosting your score..

Depends on which profile you like more, you need to pick one, then use it. There's really no reason to have an "offline" profile. You should take your "offline" profile and turn it into a silver account, you might also get a free month of gold if there's any left on your system.
