Hi, i've just got an xbox (used) and i put a 48hr code to use it live. the problem is that when i go online with my friend as a guest it says please use a valid membership! i can play online perfectly ok. its just when we want to play doubles. is this anything to do with the 48hr code? or do i have to buy a years membership in order for us both to play? thanks

Do you mean play together on the same Xbox, or play online together from different locations?
If you're trying to play on the same Xbox online, you can't because he can't login because he doesn't have an Xbox LIVE account on your machine, he's just a guest.
It's also possible that the 48 hr card might have expired.

Free codes


Unfortunately, you probably aren't very likely to find FREE codes for Xbox Live. I suggest you ask some of your friends or family members, as you are more likely to get a free XBL code from them than from online, as they'll probably be used up by someone else within minutes of them being posted online. Best of luck to you, I hope that you manage to get your subscription time! :)

How to get free xbox live codes?

P.S. if you are very desperate for a code, you can search online or join online raffles that probably offer Xbox Live codes in exchange for watching videos or commercials. I wouldn't recommend it, but it's certainly an option.

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 :)

I've got a uplay account so does this mean that my friends that play with me must also get one or what?


This means you don't have xbox live gold membership , you will need xbox live gold membership in order to play online

or if you have any free xbox live trials like 48 hours or 14 day , use it you can access online features in those limited time

hope this helps :)

I have a xbox live gold account and i have a friend round how can he play xbox gold live with me without membership


If you met him online then he has to get gold. you get 1 month free when you sign up a new membership. if you actually know him then he could play on your xbox as a guest.

Mtu keeps saying failed


I assume you mean you can't play games online?

Is your account Gold or Silver? (Go the the Marketplace blade, then down to account information, membership.)

You can only game online with a Gold subscription, which is like $50/year.

Xbox live


Make sure that you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription first,
Second You won't both be able to play at the same time enless it is a game that provides guest support(and in some games WITH) guest support you cannot play anything ranked online. To sign in a game with Guest support hit the guide button on the second controller select choose profile and scroll down, if u see "Guest" as a profile and you did not create it, then that game has guest support, and you can both play.

If u are just trying to let him play alone then you have to sign him in how you would normally
