Any XBOX live gurus around?

Found 27th Oct 2009
Am after some advice on the following if anyone can help.

We have an Xbox 360 with an XBOX live gold membership - Gamertag 'A'.

Like I say gamertag 'A' has been activated for gold & is the one we (me & my son) use to play online, whilst gamertag 'B' is my sons tag which he uses to play offline.

He wants to buy his own gold membership & use his own tag - gamertag 'B'.

1) Can this be done - ie 2 gold accounts on one console, if so is it just a case of buying the membership & 'upgrading to gold' whilst logged in with his gamertag ('B') - he has a hotmail account so is it a case of linking it to this?

2) Does he get a free 1 month trial?

3) On gamertag 'A' (the existing gold account) we both have numerous 'friends' - is there any way to move these over to his new gold account, or does he need to send new friend requests out?

4) He also has plenty of online achievements whilst using gamertag 'A' - is there any way of copying/moving these to gamertag 'B'?

Sorry for all the questions, just want to make sure we can do certain things before buying the extra membership.

yes yes no no afaik

you get up to 3 free trials per console, for up to 3 gamer tags

think so ive got two accounts on my 360 cos i screwed one up but need to sign into it as cod4 map packs are on it .. just makesure the email address are not the same and it should give you the month free trial ??

else buy a 48hr trial for £1 off ebay and try it
also you can both play online at the same time in games like halo 3 all you do is guest sign in so you'l be playing gamertag "A" and you will have AA playing as well

yeah, which might possibly help him earn some achievements quickly on his tag as if he's your guest he can probably access maps etc. in co-op that you unlocked on your account.

Thanks for the help people.

You will only get a free 1 month trial if the console is brand new since purchase(usually people have used the 3 limit if its used). And you can only do this 3 times.
