    What's the Best Way to Have Xbox Live Gold on 3-4 Xboxes??


    Yes, I have three Xboxes. I'm about to add a fourth. I play, and I have three sons who play. We don't play a LOT, but when we do we want that option to do so with our respective friends.

    What's the best way to enable Gold on all so that we can all play with our friends? I have Gold, so I set one of the consoles as the Home Xbox and mine is the alternate. That works for two. But three? Four?

    The obvious way is to buy yet another Gold account. Ugh. Then there's the "well, everyone else is doing it" method of setting my third console up as a friend's Home Xbox to allow playing. That just seems wrong - but it might be the only choice.

    I wish there were two options for this - the current way and the old way (360). I paid one Family account and had all my kids under it. It worked perfectly, but then they screwed it up on the Xbox One. Thanks, M$!

    Any thoughts??

    :)

    Would you agree with me that it seems...wrong? It seems as if I'm being "punished" for spending more money with MS by spending...more money. So I buy four consoles and, as a result, have to purchase two Gold accounts. Seems odd.

    The best and the only way is to purchase another gold subscription. Redeem it on another account, one of your sons accounts, then make one of the other consoles the home Xbox using that account.

    Trial Time for Son on Live

    1. You can use all the time just for him if you like. If it's a 48 hour trial it will not show as gold and you can only use one at a time

    2. He will not have to change his gamertag if he joins live

    3. If this is a new console and his account is one of the first 3 on the console, there is a 1 month gold membership available for joining live (this can be used once only)

    4. If he is under 18 he cannot join the rewards program

    5. You can set up the console with a family timer and family settings but other than that, the best way is to keep track of what he is playing and when

    6. Have you considered signing up for the family gold pack? You get 4 memberships for $99. If you have gold now the remaining time on that will be credited to the cost. As the main account holder you can give MS Point allowances to the other accounts
    and keep track of their gaming habits.

    Xbox Acc / Windows Live / Gamertag

    I have a similar problem.

    I bought my xbox 360 sometime 3 to 4 years ago. I made my gamertag profile, and used one of the 3 free months of gold that come with the xbox. Since then, I have not played online at all.

    Now that 3 to 4 years have passed, and I want to actually get online, I have no idea what my password to my windows live account is, nor do I have access to the email address that it is linked to any longer. I have yet to contact support, as it is 5:30 am
    here. Does anyone know of a way around this?

    Yes. You can stack up to 3 or 4 years worth of Xbox LIVE Gold.
