  1. Xbox Serie S prevents Son and I on Family account to play different games at the same time


    I recently got the new 'Series S' for my son while I remained on the 'One X'. Since then MS has prevented my son and I from playing games at the same time. This never happened when he at the 'One S'. Each time either of use is on and the other jumps online, and log into Xbox, it tell the logging on party the I, the parent, cannot play two games at once; however, due to the parent account, my son is automatically logged on under my account. With the Series S, my son loves to play MS flight Simulator while I love to play COD War Zone. Is my setting messed up or is MS really trying to prevent my son and I from enjoying our entertainment? If that's the case, it's new to MS Xbox policy. I hope that's not the case since it wasn't with his previous One S. But if it's, then I may start looking at PlayStation instead. I didn't add my son to my account and paid for his games only to be restricted on how we entertain ourselves. I've an account with Netflix that support four simultaneous login; Netflix never prevents us from being logged on at the same time. Anyway, any assistance resolving this will be appreciated. Thanks!

    :)

    Xbox live Gold Share / Epic games account PROBLEMS!

    It's still an easy fix, just a little different. Just log in with son 1's account on son 2's Xbox, and make the console the home Xbox. That will then let Son 2 use son 1's Gold with no extra cost. It just means that Son 1 has to be logged into Xbox Live
    all the time on his console to be able to play his games. There is also no such thing as family share. That is why you have to set up the home console to share games and subscriptions.

    Xbox Live Gold - how to use on 2 separate consoles at same time?

    I have purchased Xbox Live Gold for my oldest son's account and he is playing on an Xbox One S and it is set as his Home console. My younger son now has an Xbox One. We have signed the account with Xbox Live into the younger son's Xbox One. When he attempts to play online with a friend (at the same time that my older son is also on his console playing) he cannot use the Live features to play online. Is there a way I can set up the younger son's Xbox One to be able to use our Xbox Live Gold account at the same time as my older son and on different consoles with different games?
    Hey Jared, No, you can't have 2 consoles, both on the same account and fully online at the same time. You will have to create a new account for the younger son to be online at the same time. Here's a link to create a new account: . After that you need to login to that account on your younger sons Xbox. To login to the new account, Go to the Xbox Guide, Profile & System, Add Or Switch, Add New. Then enter the email and password you did for the new Microsoft Account. Once you have done that, it will guide you through the steps to creating the Xbox Account using the new Microsoft Account. Once that's done, you need to buy another Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Live Gold subscription. If you login to your older sons Xbox using the new Account while your older sons Xbox is set to Home Xbox, your older sons Xbox subscription will be shared with whoever logs in to the Xbox using a different account.

    Why won't Microsoft allow a game to be moved from 1 account to another?

    So if son #2 puts his account on son #1's xbox (in another city) son #2 can access the games on son #1s xbox?

    Is that the "game sharing?" If so, that won't work since son #1 game shares with someone else.

    So really this is why we should have been buying discs this entire time. Same price, different outcome.

    Xbox Series S / Xbox One signing out issues

    I have just bought an Xbox Series S, my son who plays on our account keeps getting logged out when I launch a game on the new console. I need this log on my new console as I have all my previously purchased games. Any ideas? Can I make my sons profile a
    child account and if so will that still means if we play at the same time we will keep signing each other out??

    Really don’t want to create a new profile!!

    2 xbox ones in one house. can i share games

    [quote user="Jedi dotNET"]

    From news.xbox.com/.../license

    "Give your family access to your entire games library anytime, anywhere: Xbox One will enable new forms of access for families. Up to ten members of your family can log in and play from your shared games library on any Xbox One. Just like today, a family
    member can play your copy of Forza Motorsport at a friend’s house. Only now, they will see not just Forza, but all of your shared games. You can always play your games, and any one of your family members can be playing from your shared library at a given
    time."

    So definitely sounds like different people can be playing on different Xbox Ones at different places. Can they both be playing at the exact same time. That isn't clear.

    The words, "anytime, anywhere" and "any given time" sounds like a yes to same time. My son and I want to play together in different places at the same time. That fits the description, right?
