Can i transfer Xbox One game to another account

10
Posted 20th Dec 2016
Hoping this is possible. I bought my kids an Xbox One with Fifa 17 which came as a digital download. I have my son's account logged in for most of the games but I went and downloaded Fifa 17 with my account and now every time he wants to play it, I have to sign in for him. Is there any way I can remove it from my profile and install it on his?
Thanks.

You should be able to game share ! If you google xbox game sharing you can both have access to the games !
Sign into your profile on his xbox one, make it xbox home, download the game.

Then just sign back into his account on his xbox and leave your account there (best to leave there to download future games, just password your account, so no games canb be accidently bought lol, you know what kids are like)

on your xbox dont touch nothing just sign in as normal never touch make xbox home or anything.

We only have the one Xbox One so not sure if that makes a difference. I wouldn't be able to download the game again would I, if I've used the code? Ideally, I should just remove my account from that Xbox but wondered what happens to the game.

just sign into your account on his xbox, goto settings, all settings, personalisation, my xbox home, then make this my xbox home, then download the game, that way you wont have to sign in all the time.

Great, thanks. I'll give it a go. Not used any consoles for a long time lol.
By doing this, I only recently found out you can share Xbox live too so I only need to pay for one 12mth sub instead of two for my kids (2 xbox's)

Hi yes still works. Which ever is paying for live add that account to the other and set it to the main primary console. Just log in with normal accounts as usual. If o remember correctly the free games or any discounted digital games will need to be purchased on main account
