    Registering new Xbox one


    Hi,
    newbie looking for some expert advice.

    My son in law and grandson both have an xbox one each. They share my son in law's Microsoft xbox account. One of the Xbox ones no longer works so I bought my grandson a new one. Can I add the new Xbox one on to the existing account without deregistering the broken xbox? If so can you tell me how to do this please. You will make me and my grandson two very happy people if you are able to help.

    :)

    Registering new Xbox one

    When you're running through the initial setup of the new Xbox, it will ask you to sign into an account, so all you need to do is sign into your son's account. The account being on 2 Xboxes already makes no difference.

    If you are going to sell the broken Xbox for spares/repairs, it would be a good idea to change the password on your son's account first, then if the new owner of the broken Xbox manages to repair it, they wouldn't be able to access your son's account as they wouldn't know the new password.

    Rather than sharing an account, it might be better for your grandson to have his own account, then he can have his own achievements and game saves, and when he's old enough, his own friends list, online purchases etc. It is possible for your grandson to still access the digital games and subscriptions purchased with your son's account, so he wouldn't have to buy his own copies of games and own subscriptions etc. If you want some advice on how to set that up, I can help you with that.

    yeah you need to register the new console first, assuming you have already registered your original xbox one and the Kinect itself..

    Registering a new Xbox ?

    Is this the site you're using to register your console? If it is, and you're not seeing the option there that you'd like to preform, I suggest giving phone support a call.
