    Xbox One Game Sharing Question


    Hi, I have a question regarding Game Sharing on the Xbox One.

    I bought Far Cry 4 and my friend and I want to play co-op but he does not have it. He said we should Game Share it along with a few of his games that I do not own. That would mean he would have to set
    his Xbox One as my Home Xbox and I would have to set my Xbox One as
    his Home Xbox. I understand this option exists (according to the Xbox website) for multiple Xbox Ones in one household as part of a Family sharing plan. But the problems here are:

    • He is my friend. Not a family member.
    • We do not live in the same household. He lives 15 miles away from me.
    Is this legal? I researched some but the answers were kind of hazy. They were all variations of, "pretty much."

    Neither of us want to do it if it risks us getting banned.

    :)

  3. 2 Xbox Ones, 2 people, 1 Live Gold account?

    Hi in reply to your question Yes you could share gold with her but your account would have to be on her xbox and your account would have to be signed in to share xbox live. With setting the home xbox's yes you both would be able to share games if both of
    you have each other xbox's set as home. You only can game share 3 times a year though.

    If you have any more questions or are a little confused here is a link on how gold sharing and game sharing works.

    Xbox One Game Sharing Question

    Right, for family members in the same household but outside of that there has been no clear directive given. There are many people who do this, but I have also seen some of them report having been told they will no longer be allowed to do this.

    On the Xbox 360 this is clearly written into the Terms of Use as not permissible so while the official word has been incredibly vague it does seem like it's not worth the risk of potential action taken against you for doing this.

    Share xbox one with more than 1 friend

    Hiya, Renato!

    Paul from Xbox Forums Team here to help with the question. The question being if it's possible to share games with more than one person at a time. Unfortunately you can only home console share with one Xbox at a time. Here are a few links on how to set up
    Home Console Sharingworks and benefits you.

    Hi Guilherme,

    Thanks for reaching out to us in the forums with this question. In relation to your question about sharing gold, if the account that holds the subscription is made the primary Home Console profile, then you are able to share Xbox Live Gold with any other
    profile on the console. For further information about this, you can read the following support articles as they are pretty helpful:

    How to designate an Xbox One console as your home Xbox

    I hope that this helps out!
