    I bought a used Xbox One today. Are the games previously installed by the former owners now ...


    Today I purchased a used Xbox One. I have my profile on my Xbox One and am signed in. The games previously installed by the former owners still show up and I am able to play them just fine. Do I now own these games? How can I check who is the owner
    of the license for the game? And is there anyway to transfer the license of these games to my account? If I remove the old profiles will these games disappear? Thanks.

    :)

    New Xbox with installed games?

    When you get a brand new Xbox One is there games installed on it or not?

    I just bought a new Xbox One from a respect store but unfortunatelly I feel like I've been lied to.

    When I opened the box it really felt like it had been opened by someone else before and that the Xbox had been used.

    When I opened the Xbox, there was already a Final Fantasy game, MX & ATV supercross game and Trackmania turbo game.

    Since I am not the one who download and installed those games would it mean that this Xbox I bought as Brand new was actually posses by someone else before? Therefore I would have bought a used Xbox?

    Thank you

    When you purchase content it is tied to the gamertag that purchased the content. So the previous owner is still the owner of the games. There is no way to transfer the licenses to your account. With the One, if you designate your console as your Home console,
    you can share content with other profiles on the console. It sounds like the previous owner has not removed that designation. If he does purchase a new console and chooses that as his Home console, it will remove the licenses from your console and you will
    not be able to play the games.

    i bought a 2nd hand xbox one with 3 installed games how to handle?

    If i don't remove the former account, can i use my own live gold account if the live account from the former owner expirers? If this works i can buy and install new games on my own (my Sons) account and use the former account only for the already installed
    games, maby in the future it is possible to switch the installed games to another account?

    The games will be linked to the former owners Microsoft account. You'll not be able to use these games once that account has been removed from the Xbox One.

    Game won’t work after soft reset

    ... i have a battlefield 1 edition console, that came with battlefield 1 that i’ve been playing since i got the console, now it doesnt seem to recognise that i own the game.
    Did you buy the console new and did you have to redeem a code to install the game on the console?

    Or did you buy the console used, and the previous owner already installed Battlefield on the console?

    If it's used, then the previous owner "owns" the Battlefield game, and just had the console set to be his "Home Console", allowing the console to unlock his games for everyone to play on that specific console. However, if the user changes his Home Console,
    the new Home Console can now unlock the game, and the former Home Console can't unlock the game for you anymore.

    So if you bought the console used, and you paid more money for the Battlefield game, ask for your money back.

    If the console was bought new, and you did redeem the code yourself, make sure you are using the same account that you used to redeem the code.

    Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising - Purchase problem again

    Did you previously own an Xbox 360 - No

    Now i tried from PC and XONE - nothing. And maybe MS will fix this problem - cause I bought Gold - and can't use some preferences - it is strange.. Maybe MS will sold gold for new users ('cutted' version) - and for owners X360?
