    Multiple xboxes


    For Christmas 2018 I bought one of my children (physical and on my Microsoft account) an xbox one. From what I can work out it is MY xbox live subscription, not his - I remember marking his xbox one as my home console. I don't really want the subscription
    TBH but I think that was the only way I could get it working.

    I have now bought an xbox one for my other child (physical and on my Microsoft account). How do I go about ensuring he has access to xbox live? They both want to play Minecraft together (I have bought another copy of Minecraft so they now have one each -
    I believe you have to put the disc in to be the licence) and Fortnite.

    Should I have bought a subscription for child #1 so that then I could buy a subscription for child #2? Should I have bought a xbox live code for them to redeem?

    IT expert of over 30 years but can't figure this one out at all!

    Many thanks in advance.

    :)

    Multiple xboxes, multiple users.

    Hey there -

    The Xbox One has the
    Home Console
    system which is designed for families with multiple users/consoles to share games across consoles without needing to purchase the same game multiple times. Making sure that is set up correctly should alleviate many of the issues you're outlining
    regarding sharing games.

    Regarding Destiny and needing to be logged in - Do you own multiple copies of the game digitally or on disc? If it's a digital copy, double check that your purchase for the game went through using the account in question's
    Microsoft Commerce account or the account's

    My Games
    section.

    Let us know if that helps or if you have other questions we can help with. :)

    So with four of us there would need to be 2 "home" xboxes and 2 sets of the game we desire to play.

    No matter what console the profile that bought the games is signed into it will always be able to play its games and use its subscriptions.

    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.

    With this in mind in your situation only 2 consoles at a time would be able to play the games.

    Let me see if I can explain it to you.

    P1= Profile with purchased games and subscriptions

    P2= Kid profile 1

    P3= Kid profile 2

    C1= P1s Home console

    C2= Console 1 that is not P1s Home console

    C3= Console 2 that is not P1s Home console

    C1 all 3 profiles can play any of P1s games and use P1s subscriptions without P1 being signed in

    If C2 or C3 want to play any of P1s games on either P2 or P3 then they would need first sign into P1 on either of those consoles then switch to their profile and then they can play any of those games or use P1s subscriptions Keep in mind going this route
    P1 would not be able to sign into any other Xbox One console to play because it will then sign out of that console and kick the person playing out of the game or online. So only the home console and one other console would be able to play P1s games and use
    any subscription at the same time

    i believe so.
    You can not share across three consoles. You can not post information like this, it is neither accurate or helpful.

    You can only have one xbox set to home xbox, which would allow all users to play using the gold live and share games. The account holder could the sign into any other Xbox and have Live and access to their games. Unfortunately it won't work between 3 consoles.
