    Some games require an internet connection to be able to play, you can find the requirements of the game on the box or the marketplace page

    Hi woodyvan,

    You need to have a Microsoft account to create an Xbox profile to then save your game progress and data and any digital content that is purchased has to be done from a Microsoft account as that is where the license for any digital content is stored.

    If you have a Hotmail account, you can use it to set up the Microsoft account but I wouldn't recommend using it if you can't get in it. What is the error with the email? Is it just a forgotten password?

    During Microsoft account creation you can create a new email as well to set up your Xbox profile with. It will be from Outlook.

    If you bought it on disc it has to be installed to reduce load times. Otherwise, the disc reader can't keep up and you would experience a ton of lag.

    You can play games offline but you may need to download the initial updates to begin. Otherwise a subscription to Xbox Live Gold is required for pretty much all features to work properly.
