I wanted to change my gamertag recently. I entered in the gamertag I wanted, and then I saw that someone had the gamertag that I wanted. The thing here is that this account hasn't seemed to have been used for more than a year already. I can tell because not only is there no gamer picture, there has been no increase in gamerscore over the past year. I heard online that Xbox will delete gamertags that haven't been used for a long time so that their names will be available to those willing to spend MSP. The thing is, how long does it take for a gamertag to completely expire? Not just from Xbox live gold membership, but simply from xbox?

Pretty much only Xbox 1 Gamertags that haven't moved to the 360 are the only ones with a shot.
You should buy Beyond Good and Evil HD. Seriously, please?

I like how you're going to say something, without an explanation. you might as well have not posted as all. If you're going to post something, it better be useful.

There is a video on xbox 101 that tells that they are in the process of deleting unused xbox live accounts.

First of all, I was posting on a mobile device. Secondly, watch the video closer. They are getting rid of old xbox accounts, not the new xbox 360 accounts. How are you going to take somebody's account that has points on it and has DLC and delete it?

His account had little or no activity done on it whatsoever. There is no gamerscore, no profile info, and not even a gamerpicture. It's almost as if someone made the gamertag just to have it, without intention of using it.

Doesn't matter. I have guest accounts like that. And you can't tell if it has points on it.
