If my son has XBox Live Gold Membership do we just need an internet connection to play or do we require extra GB per month to play?


The xbox live gold membership is paid for when you buy it. It never runs out until you have used all of the time you bought. Like say you bought a 12 month subscription it will last you the whole year until the day you bought the last one and activated it. Only time you use money is when you want to buy something from xbox live. All you need is the internet wifi or direct cable works. You can actually use your xbox live account on any xbox. Say if his friend has an xbox and has xbox live he can then use his account on his friends xbox to play online with his friend. You dont have to worry though every time he goes to an xbox he has to recover his xbox live account info so no one else can use it while he is using it. There is also a few new updates to keep his account safe as well when he does want to do something like that. also you can go into family settings and make it so he cant buy anything with out a pass code even put a timer on it with a pass code to limit time of play. So inclosing no you dont have to buy GB it just uses your internet connection and it does cover the cost of play for as long as you bought the subscription. Hope this helps :)

My son has created an online ea account to play football on his xbox 360. he can't play because it is telling him he is to young. can i create another account..


Yes, you should be able to create a new XBox Live account for your son.

When you create a new XBox Live account, make sure to edit the date of birth so it is at least 18 years old. This way any and all restrictions on his online gaming experience will be nullified.

Hope that helps!

How do I connect 2 or more players with the xbox controller?



Hi,

Follow these instructions:

  • Set up your Xbox Live connection by connecting your Xbox 360 to high-speed Internet. There are two options: connecting it to your network via Ethernet cable or connecting to your network via a wireless adapter. The simplest and fastest connection is connecting via Ethernet cable directly to your modem or router. If you must connect wirelessly, use the Xbox 360 wireless adapter, sold separately. See the Resources section below for connection tips.

  • 2

    Test your Xbox Live connection after connecting your Xbox 360 to your high-speed Internet. Navigate to the dashboard, select "My Xbox," choose "System Settings" then "Network Settings." Run the diagnostic test to confirm your connection works. Your Xbox 360 will offer troubleshooting tips if the test fails.

  • 3

    Create an Xbox Live gold account. Log out of all profiles then press the "Guide" button and choose "Join Xbox Live." Follow the prompts, entering your billing and personal information. You will also choose your gamertag during this process, which will serve as your online name and identity. Lastly, you will customize your profile. Your Xbox 360 will then create the account.

  • 4

    Insert your Xbox Live multiplayer game and open the game's Xbox Live multiplayer menu. Different games have different options but certain features remain the same across all multiplayer games. There is the TrueSkill ranked matchmaking system, which pits you against players of similar skill levels. There are also unranked player matches, where you can practice and hone your skills in a non-competitive atmosphere. Lastly, there is the quickmatch matchmaking system, which automatically searches for games for you, whether they are unranked or ranked.

    Add and play with friends. Xbox Live allows users to add up to 100 friends. Add a friend by pressing the "Guide" button, navigating to the "Friends" tab, then selecting "Add Friend." Type in your friend's gamertag then press the "Start" button and choose "Send Friend Request." Your friend will need to confirm the request to complete the process. You can play multiplayer games with friends by opening your friends list and inviting them to a game lobby.

    Communicate with friends and opponents using an Xbox 360 headset. The wired Xbox 360 plugs into your controller. Once it's plugged in, you can speak into microphone and listen to others from the ear piece.


  • Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

    I conected my hard drive to my friends xbox and recovered my old gamertag .... but im not fully on xbox live .. i have a silver account .. so i downloaded an update . when i put my hard drive in 'my' xbox...


    The reason that you are not fully on xbox live after recovering your gamertag is because the gold subscription has ran out. The reason for your xbox not having your offline account is because you probably moved your account to your hard drive along with your saved games. If you cannot connect to xbox live, go buy a cat5 cable and connect it to your modem and it should connect you to xbox live so that you can download the update.

    My son has an xbox 360 with an xbox Live account it works fine except when he tries to go online from his friends houses apparently it comes up There's a problem with the credentials your using to sign in...


    Hi. This must be the router password that xbox is trying to connect. Your home routers password is basically saved to your xbox logon credentials. If the xbox will connect to another wireless router and sees that the password he knows is not the password that was save inside the console then you will be getting that error message. Solution is type the password of your sons friends router then this will solve the issue.
