2) Live membership for one year is included, which I am also asking for for Christmas ($50 more)
3) Wireless controllers (honey, no more ugly wires everywhere!)
2. Yes and no. You get Xbox Live Silver, which just allows you into the community (marketplace, messaging, downloading of updates I think, etc.). From my understanding you have to get Gold ($50) to be able to play online. I also believe people still on Xbox Live at that time go up for free until the next pay period.
3. Yep, although they cost $50 a pop...and if you want a charge kit, that's an extra $20 a pop. Whee!
