Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hi - we've just got an xbox 360 and only seem to be able to play games with a single player. What do we need to do to be able to play against each other please?
We've got 2 wireless controllers but only seem to have options for single players highlighted at the start of any games.
When we go into the Games option to Sign in - it says there are 4 profiles, but we can't have more than 1 open at any time - so how do we get the machine to recognise 2 players?
On the wireless controllers, there is a very tiny little button, while the big "X" is lit up, press and hold the tiny button down (for 10 seconds?). the lighted "x" should start going around in circles. there is also a matching tiny button on the xbox360 itself, press and hold it down too. you have to press both of the little buttons within a few seconds of each other. the lit "x" on the xbox360 will do the same "going in circles" thing. they will both stop (for the second controller, the lights will stop on the top right of the lit "X") when they see each other. the first controller light is the top left quarter of the "x" the second controller is the top right of the "x" you need a kid with good eyes to see what the other two are, it is written on the wireless controller around the "x". when the xbox 360 sees both the first and second controllers, the top left and top right of the xbox 360 will be lit - so it looks like the top 1/2 of the x is lit. the first controller only has the top left lit, the second controller will have the top right of the x lit. hope this helps.
