    Two Xbox's in the same household


    I have seen several other questions on a very similar situation, but mine is a little different. Currently we have an Xbox at our house that my brother and I play on. Sometimes I want to play a game on it with my friends and my brother wants to play a single
    player game on the same Xbox, so we struggle between when I should get off and when he should get on. Recently we have been thinking about buying a second Xbox, but the question I have is; If we bought another Xbox and me and my brother logged on the
    same account with two separate Xbox's, would my brother and I be able to play two separate games, one offline and the other one online?


    Thanks for any helpful answers...

    :)

    You can't sign into 2 different Xbox Ones with the same console. You would each need your own account (if you don't have one already) and then you would each be able to sign into each console and play separate games.

    You can share between two profiles, you have account A the primary account and account B the new account.

    On the first console you have account A, and on the second console add account A make this the home xbox

    https://beta.support.xbox.com/search?phrase=home%20xbox

    Now add the second profile to that console and now the second account will have access to everything on the primary account to include the xbox gold membership. This way you can play on two separate accounts, even together in the same game.

    There is one additional issue and that is having two xbox's on the same network but there is a solution for that.

    Two Xboxes within same household

    Home Xbox is a fantastic feature to help make this happen, as Leslie mentioned. All content in your account (games, subscriptions, etc.) will be shared to both consoles. Just know that if there is any content (games, DLC, etc.) purchased on your son's account
    and not yours, only he will be able to access that content on the Xbox where he is signed in.

    Does your son already have his own account? If not, check out this link to set up an account for him under your account: Add a new member
    to your family on Xbox One

    Let us know if you have any questions!

    Two Xboxes within same household

    This is the setup I have for my household and it works just fine.

    1. My kids have their own accounts that are tied to my Family

    2. The Xbox in the Living room is setup with all of our profiles and is setup as my Home Xbox.

    3. The Xbox in the Den just has my profile on it.

    When I purchase digital games I use my Account, This will allow the kids to have access to the digital library on the Home Xbox in the living room. They can play these games and use the Online features from my Xbox Live Gold account on the Home Xbox without
    me needing to sign in.

    I can then log into my Xbox in the Den. I can also Play my games and get online at the same time. We are also able to play the same games at the same time. We do this a lot with Star wars Battlefront and Plants Vs. Zombies Garden warfare 2. This only
    works with Digital Purchases, if you buy a physical Copy then you will need to buy multiple copies of the game.

    This setup only works with 2 Xboxs and is designed to be used only in the same household. We have a 3rd Xbox in the house, but there isn't a way for all 3 to be used at the same time with a Single Gold account.

    I hope that helped.
