    No, Changing your gamertag is not required. Changing your gamertag is all up to you

    Even if you change your Gamertag, you purchases and saves are still locked to your account. I could change my gamertag right now and I still have everything. It stays with the email address you signed up with, not gamertag.

    From your the console dashboard, go to settings>>Profile>>Edit Profile>>Enter new gamertag

    If this is the first time you change your gamertag it will be free, anytime after that will be 9.99 + tax.

  6. To clarify what Rafael has said, if you have a randomly generated gamertag that xbox gave you, then you can change it once for free as long as it is less than 30 days old. If you picked your own gamertag, received one via forced gamertag change, or it has
    been longer than 30 days since you created the account then you will have to pay.

    Changing Gamertag

    So I need some clarification, you purchase the games on the computer but play them on xbox live? You would change your gamertag through this page:
    live.xbox.com/.../GamerProfile

    you can change your gamertag from this page.

    Hey Rafael,

    That is correct, some games on PC like GTA IV, Dirt3 and Dark Souls, are working through xbox live.

    You play them on the computer, but login with xbox live.

    When i go to that link, it tells me "How to change your gamertag on your Xbox 360 console"

    But since i dont own an xbox, this is impossible..

    I cannot change it through that link.. Is there any other way to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you sure? The link I put should have taken you to the old "edit my profile" page on xbox.com, you should get the option to edit your gamertag there on the top of the page. Let me see if I can find anything better, it appears MS wants to drive people
    away form the site, I'll keep you posted, in the mean time, try to find a link to the old "edit my profile" page yourself.

    From everything I have checked, you can only change it on a console.

    Gamer tag

    I received a forced Gamertag change. Can XBLPET let me choose a new Gamertag for free?
    Some rumors give the impression that XBLPET will provide a free Gamertag change to accounts that have received a forced Gamertag change. This is not the case.

    In the past, a forced Gamertag change gave users the opportunity to change the offending Gamertag free of charge. Unfortunately, this gesture was prone to abuse, and many people simply chose new, equally offensive Gamertags. As a result,
    the Gamertag enforcement process changed. A forced Gamertag change now automatically assigns a new Gamertag to the account, much in the same way a system-generated Gamertag is provided when you first sign up for Xbox Live.

    If a player is unhappy with the assigned Gamertag and wishes to change it, he or she may purchase a new Gamertag through the

    standard Gamertag change process

    gamertag change

    Hi there,

    I'm afraid there are no free gamertag changes, if a gamertag was deemed to break the CoC/ToU then you will given a generated one and if you want to change the gamertag into something chosen by yourself it will have the fee like any gamertag change.

    See this link for the steps:
