  1. Playing games with other household members, do I need another Live subscription? Help XBOX ...


    Finally broke down and got my son an XBOX 360 for his birthday over the weekend and I need HELP. We bought an extra controller and programmed it, and it seemed to work. But when we went to play a game with him, nothing. Then I read somewhere that each
    person needs a subscription/membership to play against one another. Is this true? What if we just wanted to play at home like the PS3 and not online? He was trying to get us to play Plants v Zombies Garden Warfare with him and I cannot figure out how to
    do this. Again, another Live subscription? If so, is this for all XBOX games? Do we always need to be "connected" to play any game? I am so confused and XBOX illiterate.

    :)

    Two Consoles x box one

    I have one xbox one atm, I'm considering getting another and would like to know if we add another console and want to play Fifa or any other multi player game together on each of the consoles would we have to buy two copys of the game to play online with
    each other (in the same household) or do we need two copys of the games (one for each console) and two live accounts ?

  3. Help! I'm a mom who is xbox illiterate!

    Is there a way to change for one Microsoft account to another? My son brought his xbox to his dad and he signed him up for the free xbox live trial. Now every time we want to change or do something we need his password for his email. If I switch it to
    my account, does my son lose all his maps and live membership and achievements? Also, it won't let my son play GTA5 on live????

    Confuse...Please Help!!!!

    to be able to play EVERY game with each other you will need 2 xboxs. 2 controllers, 2 TVs, 2 copies of the game, and 2 xbox live accounts as gold members to play online with each other.

    some games let you have guests and do split screen though which helps.

    as said, halo allows guests to split screen, COD3 back when I played it allowed split screen a well but i am not sure on guests.

    NO XBOX LIVE OPTION ON COD GHOSTS **HELP**

    Only one account on the console needs to be GOLD but Malacath's response is accurate also. Either your account or another account on your console needs to be a Gold Xbox Live member before you can play multiplayer.

    How do I make it my home Xbox

    Also, for sharing games, just keep in mind that game sharing is only intended for family members in the same physical household. Any other form of game sharing, such as with a friend in another house/city/country, is against Microsoft CoC and can result
    in both accounts being banned.

    Xbox Live Gold Family Pack Conversion to Home Gold

    Hi Nick,

    Xbox One Home Gold is specifically features for the Xbox One, these features do not transfer over to the Xbox 360. If you have family members that wish to make use of their Xbox 360's and play games online they would need their own Xbox LIVE Gold subscription
    to do so.

    Xbox One Home Gold will be good for (1) console in the household. Your gold membership will be tied to that console and anyone that signs in or makes a gamertag on that Xbox One console will have a gold membership while they are on that console. If you purchase
    multiple Xbox Ones, you'd need another subscription for that console to allow everyone to play on that specific console as well. This is how it's been explained in the FAQ and things could change but that is how it is at the current point in time.
