    Sharing games with family on two consoles in same house


    Hi,

    We recently got a 2nd xbox console a couple months ago. My kids, partner and me all have profiles on the xbox and are family members.

    I am the ultimate pass holder.

    Can we share the games we have downloaded between the two consoles and both kids play the same game on different consoles at the same time?

    I have watched so many YouTube videos. My understanding was that if I made the new xbox my home xbox and the original one the kids home xbox this would work. But it doesn't.

    Please can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Do we need another subscription?

    Thanks.

    :)

    You can only share on your Home console and you can only have 1 console set as your Home at a time. So if everyone is going to be switching between both consoles, it would be best to have a second subscription. Otherwise, you'd want to set the most used console as your Home so everyone else can use that one. You can still sign in and use everything on any console because it's tied to your account.

    Game Share

    Game sharing is meant for console's within the same house or family. Not for friends or other people.

    3 xbox consoles

    The Family Game share feature is only available for 2 consoles. There isn't a way to share on 3 consoles at a time.

    I have the same issue at my house. If the Kids want to play on two of the consoles I'm not able to log into the third with my profile, because in order for the Kid that is on the Non-home console they have to have me logged in on it.

    Two consoles, same house, sharing issue.

    With physical copies you would need two copies of the game. You have to have the disc in the drive in order to verify that you own the game, so it would not be possible to have the game running on two consoles with 1 disc.

    Two consoles, same house, sharing issue.

    Well that sucks. I get the whole if they let you play without the disc you could just install it and sell it while continuing to play it. There should be a feature where it can sense that someone is using a physical copy, otherwise it's pointless buying
    physical copies.
