    Hi,

    Is there any easy way to transfer an Xbox live account to be associated with a different Microsoft account? I originally set up my son's Xbox account on my email which is associated with my Microsoft account. He would now like to setup his own Microsoft
    account and move his Xbox live account across to it.

    It appears that this is not easily achieved without loosing all Xbox/Gaming points and starting with a completely new gamertag. Obviously he is very reluctant to do this. I am also reluctant to change my Microsoft account as this is associated with my business
    email account. What options are there?

    :)

    Gamertags/xbox profiles can NOT be moved between microsoft accounts. Even if you change the email (as seen

    here
    ) it will still log you into the same microsoft account, but with just a different email. You can only change TO an email that is NOT Hotmail, Live or Outlook.

    The only way to fix this is to have your son create a new account. You can set your account as the

    My home xbox
    account and on that console he can share your games and gold.

    If I associate a new email address with my Microsoft account and then remove my existing email from this account, couldn't I then create a new Microsoft account with my previous email address? This way my son could continue with the same Microsoft account/Xbox
    subscription under his new email address. He would then retain all the benefits of his existing gamer profile which he has gained over the past 8 years.

    You could do that and create a new microsoft account and xbox account with that email but he will start fresh with 0 everything and no subscription.

    The gamertag and all purchases, subscriptions and gamerpoints and save game progress will stay with the microsoft account that it's on and there's no way to move that to another microsoft account no matter what you do: may that be email moving or anything.

    Sorry.

    Sorry.

    I don't think I explained myself very well in my last post. I am actually suggesting that my son keeps the Microsoft account and the Xbox live subscription, gamer points etc. What if he adds a new email address to this account, then makes it the primary
    email, then removes the original email address (mine). Is this possible?

    Then if I require a Microsoft account I will simply make a new one. I'm expecting that I wouldn't be able to use my email address due to it being associated previously with a Microsoft account. If this is the case then I will have to create a new email address
    purely for a Microsoft account.

    Yes you can do that. You can only add an email that is not Outlook, Hotmail nor Live mail.

    You can do this and make a new microsoft account with that email if the email is not Outlook, Hotmail nor Live mail. Otherwise you will need to create a new email and new microsoft account.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding.
