How to add an xbox live guest for Gears of War?

Gears of War is an outstanding new game for the Xbox 360, the graphics and animation for this game are the best I have ever seen, especially when played back on an HDTV at 1920x1080p resolution.

That said, the menu system for the game was kind of an after-thought and is not very intuitive. The part that I and many other folks suffered with are how on earth to get an xbox live guest signed in so that both you and the guest can play together in split-screen on xbox live? I tried searching every where and I could not find an answer, but luckily after several attempts I was able to figure it out.

Below are the exact steps you need to do to get a guest signed in:

  1. Make sure the second controller is turned on and is not signed in to xbox live.
  2. From the main menu select VERSUS then select XBOX LIVE PLAYER MATCH
  3. At the bottom of the VERSUS PLAYER MATCH screen you should see this “Y Guest SIGN-IN” (see screenshot below)
  4. On the second controller press Y then select “Guest Xbox Live” from the list that drops down.
  5. That’s it, you are now ready to play with your guest
