Xbox One digital downloads

I've a friend who's bought an Xbox one for his son. He wants to download the 3 digital games on a friend’s internet before Xmas day.

The question is, does he have to login to his sons Xbox account (its a Xbox 360 one currently) to download the games? OR are the games able to be downloaded on any account to the new Xbox one and on Xmas day his son signs into his account and can play the games?

Hopefully I’ve written that well enough to be understood, apologies if I’ve not.

Many thanks

He could be able to see the games in his history. I have a 360 & an Xbox one, I'm at work until tomorrow but when I get in I can check how easy it is to notice Xbox one games showing on the 360 profile?

He won't notice them, if you just downloaded them there is no way to see them. Even the achievements just come up as xbox one.
Just download them, the only giveaway is that a friend that is online will see him on Xbox One but won't know what you are doing. You can also set it to appear offline under my profile settings on the Xbox One

It would be best if he download using his Xbox live account as they would be linked to his profile. But you don't need to as the Xbox one allows game sharing so he could create a new profile & download the games then once his son puts his on he will be able to access & play them also. But the profile created to download the games will need to stay on the Xbox for good.

Download the profile that has xbox live onto the console then add the new profile and download the game codes that way it dont matter if the person who has live stays on the console or not
but one word of warning most of one games require live connection

He's also worried by using his sons profile on the new Xbox one his son may see the games when hes on his xbox 360. I know they are xbox one digital download games but maybe in the history?
