    Linking my son's account to my live account


    My son has an xbox account which he has used regularly but recently it keeps asking him to sign in using his email address and password. Once we've done this it then says we need to sign in at xbox,com before he can use his profile (code 83118853)

    I then log in using my email address and get presented with a page that says "Let your child use a Microsoft account?". When I click "Yes" I get a message saying "We were unable to sign you in. Your account is missing a full name or date of birth. Visit
    account.live.com to update the required information, then try again." When I follow the link my name and date of birth are already present

    I have tried this with 2 different live accounts and get the same message each time. This is very frustrating for my son as he has a lot of saved games under his profile that he currently can't access

    :)

    Ea Access Question

    I have two different account on my Xbox one for me and one for my son. If I got ea access on one of the accounts could the other account play those games.

    Is Split Screen and Multi-Player across different consoles possible?

    Yes! Your scenario above is exactly what they hope for, but it would all be using Xbox 360 consoles (I'm not sure if that makes a difference). Each console does have a separate copy of the game.

    I think each person does have an Xbox live account. I'm really unclear how Xbox live works even though I know I'm paying for it for my Son. Is the Xbox Live account attached to a specific account or is it attached to a specific console?
