    That would be a good idea and then I think it wouldn't be a good idea because I feel like people would change their gamertag everyday and if everyone was able to then imagine the disaster if changing gamertags... we wouldn't be able to because someone would take that gaermtag....

    Be a nice idea to do it for people who get a yearly subscription, then they're not missing out & also limit it to a set amount per year.

    Or maybe every 3 months you have gold you get a free GT change?

    Know that I love a change now any then so actually a good idea.

    This is a great idea. If not, AT LEAST be cheaper like $5 instead of $10.

    This would be cool but they have proven they can charge and ppl will pay this wont change if anything will go up in price

    cant be free i like the system how it is. if it was free then there would never be any to choose from. people would constantly change them and everyone would end up having to have gamertag123452324 and so on.

    Can't folks change their name gamertag once for free? I thought that was the policy... if not, maybe it ought be.

    I don't understand why you have to pay. You can change your password, family details etc no charge. I just wont to know why you have to pay?

    Xbox live players have been shooting out tons of money for their features, we deserve a free name change! After Switching to the 360-->to the one, we should have one free name change! And every two years or so we should get another one! POWER TO THE PLAYERS

    I would like to only slightly change my gamertag not make a completly new one i have been a member for 7 years havent changed it once and what i find a bit annoying is the name i initially chose that it wouldnt let me have has been free to use and still is to this day so i would just liek to change it the once and not havr to spend £8 for a name i chose but wouldn't let me have for no reason

    Would like to change game tag but don't want to be charged only have my xbox1 for week

    It should state that there is a charge to change Gamertag when you are doing it. My son changed his name and no mention of a charge until I received the email that my CC had been charged. Shame on you Microsoft, very misleading.

    Why does the website say it can be changed once for free but when I click it it says I have to pay? I was told it is because I have been a member for 8 years. It doesn't say on the website that there is a limit. So I should be able to get my first change for free. I think the fact that I have been a member for 8 years I should get it free anyway for being so loyal.
