    Gamertag suffix and I'm the original


    Hello ! I changed from Xbox to PC so I wanted to bring my gamertag with me. When I created my PC account my gamertag was already taken by my Xbox account so I got a suffix (3260). Recently I changed the Xbox gamertag so mine should be available but I still
    got that annoying suffix. How to get rid of it?

    :)

    you didnt need to create another account for pc, you could have just logged in with the account you use on xbox, this would then carry on using your existing gamertag.

    I wanted to separate accounts, one for Xbox, one for PC. The only way is to change the gamertag to something else and then back to mine but this means that I would spend 20$ for nothing

    Suffix in my gamertag

    The numbering suffix is used to differentiate gamertags. A change to the gamertag system last year enabled users to have similar gamertags to other, existing players, but to distinguish them from the original one, a numeric suffix is used. If you wish
    to change your gamertag, there is a charge of US$9.95 (or local equivalent) to do so.

    Hi New Jersey Bully,

    Have you recently changed your Gamertag? The suffix and numbers are there as the gamertag you chose has already been taken and there for the suffix and numbers are added to differentiate it from the original taken gamertag. Check out the Gamertag
    update FAQ
    for more info.

    Not all games support to the gamertag format and therefore that might be why you are seeing what you are.

    Hope this helps.

    New gamertag system?

    Hi JoJolyne Cujoh,

    Check out this Gamertag Update FAQ. The suffix and numbers are added as that Gamertag you have chosen is taken in its original form.
    The only way you can have that Gamertag if it is taken is with the suffix and numbers. If you don't want those numbers, you will have to find another Gamertag you like that's not taken.

    Hope this helps :)
