The other concern I have is that I don't have one of those XBOX keyboards, nor a headset. So... If I got the Gold account, how would I play with you guys?
Do I just click on your name and send a "I wanna play" request? Should I get the headset so I can at least talk to you while we're setting up a game? Should I get a keyboard so I can type in messages? What's the protocol for setting up games?
Very easy. If I setup a game all I do is go to the Dashboard (hit the Xbox Guide Button), navigate to my friends list, and press "X" to Invite to Game. You simply hit the guide button when the invite pops up and accept the invite. It's that simple. You just need a headset, which every Xbox 360 comes with anyway. I use the wireless headset but it's not necessary. A Keyboard is definitely not necessary, I never text chat on Xbox Live.
