Default xbox live question

When you buy a xbox 360 game and want to play it on xbox live, do you have to register the game?

No. If you buy the game off XBL it will be tied to your console and your gamertag. If you decide to get a different console your license will be valid for those games while signed in to XBL unless you do a license transfer which can only be done 4 times a year.

Thats only if the game is bought digitally, a lot of newer games require online passes though. *cough* EA *cough*

Just avoid EA and you'll be fine. I can't adequately express my distaste for those guys....
