I have an xbox360 and every time I play Grand Theft Auto IV and the go to multiplayer, it says "your gamer profile does not have the correct permissions to access Xbox LIVE functionality". I have tried changing my privacy settings to adult, but it sti, as far as I'm aware.

What's going on?

Do you have a paid Xbox Live subscription? – GnomeSlice Dec 22 '12 at 2:45

For every game on Xbox Live you will need a paid Xbox Live Gold subscription. Make sure you have that.

If you do have a subscription, you might be banned from playing GTA 4 online, if you misbehaved online. If it is your first time playing online beeing banned is unlikely.

If none of the above seems to be true, you might want to contact Microsoft in their support forum or Rockstar Games on their support site.
