    Xbox Game Ownership


    So, when I was unable to get a job and had no money, I really wanted Terraria on Xbox. My older brother would buy it for me, but I had to do his chores. Now that Im older, I have my own Xbox. I am trying to figure out if there is a way that I can transfer
    ownership of said game.

    :)

    Unfortunately not mate, as Smutches said, its only available to your bro because he bought it on his account. The only option is for him to game share with you and you can have it on yours. Otherwise you will need to buy yourself a copy.

    Hope this helps

    If he bought it under his account, there is no way to transfer ownership to your account.

    That games is not backwards compatible (which would be up to the publisher). So in order to play it on the One you'd either need another game pass subscription or you would have to purchase it for the One.

    Per the Code of Conduct, you are not actually authorized to use the account that was left on the used Xbox, or any game licenses associated with it. I would suggest deleting the content, including the child account.

    The relevant portion is below, and the full Code of Conduct can be found at this

    link
    if you want to peruse the entire thing.

    Don’t engage in fraud or unauthorized transactions. For example, don't:

    • Lend, transfer, sell, or otherwise provide third parties access to your accounts or Gamertags

    Hi again; I feel like I should let this go, but it really seems like something is being missed here. Just to be sure, I double-checked the definition of backward compatibility:

    Backward compatibility
    is a property of a system, product, or technology that allows for
    interoperability
    with an older
    legacy system, or with
    input designed for such a system, especially in
    telecommunications and
    computing. Backward compatibility is sometimes also called
    downward compatibility.[1]

    Modifying a system in a way that does not allow backward compatibility is sometimes called "breaking"
    backward compatibility.[2]

    A complementary concept is
    forward compatibility. A design that is forward-compatible usually has a
    roadmap for compatibility with future standards and products.[3]

    (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backward_compatibility)
    Being that this discussion was posted in the Backwards Compatibility forum, I think this needs to be said. The game is not forward compatible. Backwards compatibility is something that the newer product, in this case, the console, would either succeed or
    fail at. Blaming the publisher here doesn't seem at all justified; this is in Microsoft's court.

    Maybe the kind of compatibility I was expecting has just been the norm across other systems to the extent that I didn't do my homework. I felt like, in today's market, expecting the new Xbox to run my 360 games was a pretty safe bet on my part. Lesson learned.
    Now I have the decision of refusing to buy the new game, and resenting Microsoft for not being able to make arcade games compatible, or buying the new copy and feeling like I've been scammed into purchasing the same thing twice.

    I have too much Microsoft crap to want to look at other options over game compatibility, but part of me almost hopes to see more situations like this. Maybe I'd like Apple once I got used to it. How about you screw up Office compatibility next, so I feel
    justified in considering the switch?
