-- There are many sites popping out these days that detail how you can get a free Xbox Live account â€“ just perform a quick google search and you're bound to come across a site or two. That doesn't mean all sites you come across are legit though. There are definitely some out there that are up to nefarious purposes. Why is the Xbox Live so popular? The Xbox Live service is changing the way we consume our media. Whereas before we only watch shows on TV where the schedules are predetermined, or buy our games as a package (no way to chop off sections of games that we don't like), now with the Xbox Live we can choose which shows we want to watch, when we want to. Microsoft opted to increase the availability of the Xbox Live service in a very effective way: instead of selling extra equipment, they chose to sell Xbox Live codes, making subscription a lot easier for customers. Not only is it convenient for the subscriber (no need to install and configure extra devices) but it is also a cost saving for Microsoft since they don't have to deal with repairs and inventory returns. A word about collisions Would you really believe it if someone told you that the game codes being sold are randomly generated and thus can never be truly reproduced? If you had any basic course in statistics, you'll find out that this is just marketing gimmick to prevent people from realizing the truth and getting a free Xbox Live account. If code generation were truly randomized, the more codes that exist, the more you will experience what statisticians call â€œcollisions.â€
A collision is simply the creation of a code that had already been created before. The more codes there are, the higher the chances of a collision. Think of it this way: suppose you have to randomly choose a number from 1 to 10. If you randomly choose a number, you'll find that after just 3 tries (on the average) you'll start to choose a number that has been previously chosen. That is what you call a collision. Enter the generator In order to avoid collisions, the Xbox Live codes are in fact created using generators. A generator simply produces a game code based on a specific, secret algorithm that guarantees there will be no collisions in the creation of game codes. In our count to ten example, one generator we can use is a â€œplus oneâ€ generator which simply adds one to every number. Using that generator, we are able to get the whole spectrum of numbers from 1 to 10 without a collision. So yes, there are definitely code generators out there that will give you a free Xbox Live account. But be careful in choosing a generator for Xbox Live codes. Remember, not all generators will give you a free Xbox Live account â€“ some might just be pulling your leg, but some are definitely the real deal.
