Unable to play online in umvc3 on xbox live

Hi, so I recently just bought the game and wanted to try it out online but the problem is when I enter Xbox live from the main screen of the game it says i need a gamer profile capable of playing online and everything but the leaderboards is blanked out. Is there something i need to do?

The road ahead is long and unclear…

Did you forget to pay for live?

nah, i’m able to connect to xbox live just can’t on umvc3 for some reason
