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 :)

Call of Duty World at War on XBOX multiplyer


Halo will allow you to play with several guests on the non-competition section of their system.

But most ( maybe all ) CoD will only let you use a single account for one player when playing online.

The only option would be to have your friend purchase a 360 and join a party/game with you.

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.

Do u have to pay to go online on the xbox 360


Hello there.

On the Xbox 360, you'll have two choices of service level: Xbox Live Silver and Xbox Live Gold. Xbox Live Silver will offer limited Xbox Live functionality at no cost, while the Gold package will be a fully functional pay service.

The Xbox Live Silver service means you can connect your Xbox 360 console to a broadband Internet connection and get functionality right out of the box without having to pay any amount of money.

With Xbox Live Silver you can:
  • Create an online Gamer Profile
  • Access the Xbox Live Marketplace
  • Engage in voice and text messaging
  • Talk to a single friend at a time using voice chat
  • Receive video messages from Gold level members
  • Access massively multiplayer online games (additional fees may apply)
The Xbox Live Gold is similar to the current paid Xbox Live service. The Xbox Live Gold service delivers the complete online connection package. With Xbox Live Gold you have all the features of Silver level, and additionally:

  • Play multiplayer games online
  • Video chat
  • Multiplayer online tournaments
  • Participate in Xbox Live online programming, such as Game with Fame, Play and Win, and Prime Time activities.
Hope this clarifies things for you.

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
