    I am getting back into PC gaming and am thinking about setting up a Games for Windows Live account, but was wondering, can I use my Xbox 360 account, or should I keep them separate?

    I will still be using my Xbox 360 for some games.

    I have decided to use the same account as my Xbox 360.

    I do the same, you don't need a gold subscription to play on PC though which is awesome!

    Pretty much what he said and you might need to be aware of a number of instances.

    1)GFWL 5-time-per-month activation
    2)make sure you run the installation as an Administrator on your PC
    3)also run the decryption as Administrator
    4)Have fun!
