You can recover the gamertag to the same xbox, apply the family subscriptions and then "recover" them back to the original xboxs.

Also if you do this, only the main account holder can purchase things via the marketplace.

Its good control though to stop your kids buying stuff they cannot pay for.

Here are 3 easy steps to split a Family pack across multiple consoles: -Move all family members onto one console either by recovery, or with a USB flash drive [http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-live/how-to/xbox-live-account-management/gamer-profile.aspx] -Add members to the Family Pack [Xbox Dashboard>My Xbox>Family Center>Add Family Member] -Move all family members back to their original consoles (Same method as Step 1) ***If you have any problems with this process, please call Xbox Support at 1-800-469-9269 and we can walk you through the process. :-)

Your children can still redeem prepaid codes though. I currently have this subscription, me, my other half and my 2 brothers over 3 different consoles

You have 4 seperate accounts. The only limiting factor in doing this to play 4 seperate games is the need for 4 consoles. Dont forget if its the same game youll need 4 copies of the same to play each other.

Don't forget also...... If anyone wants to play EA games, put the age.down as 14 or above. (check its not now 16!)

Its the reason I now have a family pack so the kids can keep their details but get access to EA games with an "adult" account.

Dehumanization.............guv............. Cheers for that info just my mates have two consoles but 3 people on and they pay over £100 for the year. This way there gona save over £ 40.

I posted family pack as a deal a while ago, went about -100, people saying Microsoft charge too much etc, whilst that is true, it's for service that people want, and ad above post says it doesn't even have to be family as long as everyone trusts the main account holder
