    Multiple Xbox One S..ss with Sea of Thieves


    Hi all ... question ... obviously ...

    I have 3 kids who love to play and they were wanting to play all at the same time ... long story short we were able

    to purchase 2 used xbox one S..s and now we have three !! I have been able to get them all onboard my Live

    subscription ...

    Now to the real question ... I purchased a hard copy of Sea of Thieves for one of my kids ... now the other 2 want

    to play and work together as a team (like this) ... Initially I (think) transferred Sea of thieves from the home

    xbox to the other 2 xboxs' but of course each box is wanting the physical disk to work ... so after checking

    the online store I see that it is available for a great price but it is a digital download .... so am I stuck in looking

    for additional hard copies or is there a workaround with the digital download as I am under the impression one

    can share the digital downloaded game across all 3 boxes ... of is it possible to just use the original hard disk ?

    I hope someone more knowledgeable then I ... firstly understands what I am trying to do ... and secondly may be

    able to give me a solution

    thanks !

    :)

    thanks for the warning ... so far we haven't had an issue ... but I will watch for it ... I seem to recall a sales rep telling me, but can't confirm of course as I don't have 5 Xbox's, that one can have up to 5 devices on LIVE. This was to allow for the
    old family membership that XBox you to sell

    Let me see if I can explain it for you a little better.

    No matter what console an account is signed into it will always be able to play its digital games and use any of its subscriptions (gold, game pass, EA access)

    Each profile can set ONE console at a time as its home console and ANY other profile on that console can then play its digital games and use its subscriptions without the main account being signed in at the same time.

    Each profile can change which console they have set as their HOME console only FIVE times a year.

    So lets look at your situation. You said you have all the subscriptions and games under your account

    I will use this diagram

    A1- Your account- Has all the digital games and subscriptions

    A2- Kid 1 account

    A3- Kid 2 account

    A4- Kid 3 account

    No matter which of the 3 consoles you sign into you will be able to play the digital games and use your subscriptions

    C1- Console 1 - You set this console as your home console ALL 3 kids would be able to play your games and use your subscriptions

    C2- Console 2 - Would only be able to play your games and use your subscriptions if you are signed in at the same time

    C3- Console 3 - Would only be able to play your games and use your subscriptions if you are signed in at the same time

    The thing is this you would only be able to be signed into ONE console at a time so in the scenario above only 2 of your kids would be able to play any of your digital games at the same time. Now if you were to buy a Physical copy in the above scenario
    Console 3 would be able to play the game on their console at the same time as the other 2 kids but they would not be able to use any of your subscriptions.

    So in your scenario if the game is an ONLINE only game you would at least need 2 gold subscriptions and 1 digital copy of the game and 1 physical copy of the game.

    They should never of been able to play that game at the same time online unless someone somewhere had a gold subscription.

    Once you signed in on the 3rd xbox it should have signed you out of the second xbox and kicked that kid from the game and online if he was online.

    Now you did say that you bought the Xboxes used It is possible that someone else still has that xbox set as their home xbox and still has an active gold subscription that is allowing your kid to use it.

    OK so if I understand ... I will remove the Physical disk copy off the home xbox and install it on one of the other ones ... then purchase the digital download onto my home box and transfer that to the box that isn't using the physical disk ... ?

    hey thanks for the info ... I was looking at the game pass but read on these forums that yes it is included for free but once

    the game is removed we could no longer play it ... we did get the digital download for Monster Hunter World shared that with 2 xboxs and they were able to get online from both boxes ... so I wonder if that online access is game specific then ?

    Hi All ... first thanks to all the assisted with my question ... compiling all of your replies I was able to make my scenario work with much success ...

    This is what I have done ... hopefully it will help any of you out there

    1. 1st of the 3 Xbox One S's

    - this is my home Xbox

    - purchased the digital download of Sea of Thieves

    - allows 2 xboxs' to be used under one license

    2. 2nd Xbox - transferred game onto this xbox

    3. 3rd Xbox - purchased a physical copy of the game

    4. Signed into Xbox Live with my ID and started up the game on the home Xbox

    - 1st kid changed from my profile to their profile

    5. I signed into the 2nd xbox with my ID

    - this signed me out of the home xbox - my child was not kicked off the home xbox and they were

    able to continue in xbox live

    - my 2nd child then switched to their profile on the 2nd Xbox

    6. I signed into the 3rd xbox with my ID

    - this signed my out of the 2nd xbox - and as before my 2nd child was not kicked out of the 2nd xbox

    and they were able to continue with the xbox live

    7. my 3rd child then switched to their profile on the game

    Viola !! all were playing ... they invited each other to a private channel chat ... using Turtle Beach headsets were

    able to play and talk to each other

    PS: this also worked with Overwatch ... and no indication this wont work with any other games we play
