  1. Minecraft on pc via Microsoft Xbox live not signing in with Microsoft account


    I purchased minecraft for my son via a card with a pc code. I had a hell of a time getting it all set up on his laptop only for minecraft to just spin and spin and never sign him in using his microsoft account. He has to play as ‘Steve’ all the time. A
    game should not be this difficult to get set up. I will definitely never purchase a microsoft game this way again. How can i get his microsoft account to finally connect and sync with minecraft?

    :)

    I don't own an Xbox nor an Xbox account and yet Microsoft thinks I do

    Hi Genesukt64,

    Have you signed in on a pc with the info you used to create the microsoft account for use with minecraft?

    When you created the account to use with minecraft it is an automatic action with the gamertag it doesn't mean microsoft thinks you have an xbox.

    Hi there,

    -

    Disconnecting your microsoft account from your pc account, will allow you to connect via a different microsoft account for each app.

    You could also connect the microsoft account with your xbox live account to the pc account.

    Microsoft Account linked to PS4 account on Minecraft

    I do not understand why Minecraft has to have Xbox live, Microsoft and mojang just to play the game.
    HI,

    Minecraft needs a Xbox Live account and running subscription as its a ONLINE game. You need the Microsoft account as Xbox Live is a Microsoft gaming platform and you need to sign in with your Microsoft account for access to your games , etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Minecraft and cross platform

    Hello ObsessedLynx,

    I know for Nintendo you would have the have the latest update of Minecraft, all you need to do is sign into your Microsoft account after loading up Minecraft and then you will be able to cross play with your Xbox friends via that. So if it now works on PS4,
    your friend would have to sign up for a Microsoft account and log into that.
