    I'm thinking no, but is there any way to change my tag for Xbox Live after I have activated it? I got in this weekend, started playing, and my wife says, "oh, surprised you didn't use (insert_name_here)?" My jaw just dropped as I agree with her, I should have used a different handle.

    Any way to permenantly change a registration from one to another?

    Nope.

    I believe you'll have to buy a new kit to change your GamerTag.

    I guess you could try calling 1-800-4MYXBOX and asking them, but I'm pretty sure that you cannot change it once you've set it.

    As indicated above you need a new kit with a new subscription code.

    I used the name "Gaspacket" which is kind of an old online joke. I used to play Myth on PC a lot and one of the units (the wight) likes to shamble around, fill up with gas, and puncture himself to kamikaze on the enemy. I just loved these guys and used them to great effect, so I was eventually dubbed "Gaspacket" by my clan. They also turn into a lot of little piece of wight that you could pick up and throw as grenades, so lil gaspackets, if you like.
    The other name I can't give you [​IMG] Someone will eventually take it, but I'll hold out for Xbox2...
