If you can answer questions answer this does xbox one really take one game on one xbox one and not the other


It depends on the medium. If the game is physical (on a BluRay disc you purchase at the store, for instance), then you can play it on any XBox One console. If it's obtained via download (even if it's a game you purchased a code for), it's associated with your XBox Live account, and this does restrict access. Gold accounts also require you to tether them to a "home" XBox One, but the chief purpose is to allow other non-Gold accounts on that console to access Gold content if they share it as a home XBox One, not to further restrict game sharing.

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 set up live


In order to set up an xbox live account you need a few things. First is an internet connection to the Xbox itself. Secondly is an email account, as you need this to set up the live account. Third is an Xbox live subscription for gold if you intend to play games online. When you set up your account, you will be allotted 1 month free of gold subscription, after that, you can buy gold subscription cards at walmart, or kmart, or radio shack. An Xbox live silver subscription is free and allows you to download game content and movies and such, but not play games online. When you connect your box to the internet, you sign in with your profile and your then already on an xbox live silver subscription. You can upgrade to gold again buy either buying a gold card, and entering the code, by redeeming your code through, there is a tab after you push the dashboard button. Or you can choose to put in your credit card information, and have it charge you monthly, three months, or even yearly!

We have played the xbox call of duty for 3 months. game now telling us that profile could not be used . wanted us to renew our gold membership. the console was preowned. do we have to renew or can we...


To play ONLINE Call of Duty then you will need a Gold account. I am assuming that you had bought a 3 month membership to Gold and that is why it has run out?

If the Xbox 360 is used then you still might have a few free trial periods free for 1 month Xbox Live. If I recall previously you could load up to 4 trial accounts. So try just creating a new user profile and see if it doesn't give you one month free for that account? If not then the previous owner has used all the trial accounts.

Make sure you don't use a credit card when signing up to Xbox Live though... it will automatically be set to charge you for renewal when your Gold Account runs out.

If you have to get a Gold account then I recommend you purchase the Live cards at your local store. Some people go onto Ebay and find cheap deals... but I have heard of a few people complain when getting cards that don't work.

I cannot sign into my xbox live, my fiance renewed his account already, and even though we are on the same console do i have to renew as well?


Yes you do. Xbox live accounts are processed by the individual user not the console. In order to play online you BOTH need a gold subscription. (or make a third gamertag and share that one for online play)

It say I dont have permission to play on battlefield bad company 2 online


You probably either dont have xbox live, or you just have an xbox live silver account. Or your parents may have set up parental controls blocking you from using xbox live.

When ever i create a new account with xboxlive i can go on market place and stuff but i can play online???


Are the accounts you are creating "silver" accounts? If so those accounts only allow you to keep track of your game saves, achievements, and to purchase and download content. They do NOT allow you to play against other online. To do that you need to sign up for xbox live Gold. The Gold membership runs $25 for 3 months or $59 for 12 months. When you become a gold member, you can then play against others online.

Also, if you purchase a code and activate it, the account that is signed in is the account that becomes gold. Very important to double check before you buy in case you have multiple users in your household.

My xbox signs in to xbox live and everything but when i try to play a game of call of duty online it tells me (the current profile is not allowed to play on xbox live ) how do i solve this problem


Hi. You probably only have a silver XBOX Live membership. In order to play online multiplayer, you need to upgrade your account to a gold membership. For details on how to upgrade your account, click here.

If you have an Xbox live "Silver" account all you can do is talk to your friends, it will not allow you to play games with them. If you have a "Gold" account it will allow you to do both and download content etc. It will tell you what type of account you have in "my xbox" under your avatar. This could be your problem. The other problem could be that this is the busiest weekend of the year for Madden due to the Super Bowl. I think the problem is going to be your subscription status being silver instead of gold.
