    windows 8 itself supports for xbox games and music stores.
    refer to site
    Xbox - Xbox.com
    You can create free account and enjoy music and games at one place
    Your place should be properly configured otherwise it will face problem in log in.
    Also in order to share you have windows charms from where you can directly chat with your friends
    Hope it helps you...

    is it working now? this is usually a server side issue.

    I noticed the problem a few days ago with not being able to pull up my friends. It was logged in so I could do everything else but see my friends.

    Now it's cleared up (took a few days though).
