So, let's speak I have actually two consoles, mi key one and my backup, and I deliver my patent from the key one, whereby I buy every my games, to my backup console. Go that mean that after ~ I perform the transport all the gamings I already bought and all the games I will ever before buy space "licensed" top top my back-up console? In other words, carry out I have to keep transferring licenses every four months to play the games I bought after ~ the last patent transfer?

You acquire the license individually for each game bought after. If girlfriend bought the on console 1 after carrying on console 2, the an initial console will have actually it.

sorry if ns still dont acquire it. I additionally have the very same question: I have actually 1 phat console that has 20+ digital games purchased or GwG in it. Provided the phat one to mine nephew and I purchased a brand-new slim X360. Ns did not carry out a LT, coz i am always connected come XBL. So I simply redownload mine games and play at will. However what will occur if I carry out a LT to mine slim console, have the right to my nephew quiet play the 20+ games?


He doesn't need a LT (for the games already in the console), and also you don't need one due to the fact that you are using the profile you to buy the gamings with. Therefore you would certainly only have to do a LT if girlfriend buy brand-new games top top your brand-new console, so her nephew have the right to play them. As someone suggested here, it's much better to simply buy the game (with your profile), in this instance in her old console, so both that you have the right to play castle without having to carry out a LT, for this reason you have the right to save that for once you really require it. I wish i figured that before haha.


There room two types of patent on 360 console, mechanism license and local License. System license uses to the account/gamertag/xbox live profile the purchase and download the game while neighborhood license applies to the devices(xbox 360 console) wherein games and also contents where originally purchased and downloaded. If you desire to usage the very same account ~ above your ago up console and play your games their, license carry isn't necessary as friend still have actually the system license. However if friend want other accounts to play the game, that's as soon as you must do license transfer as you need at least the local license to allow other gamertag to play the game.

I think you might not recognize what patent transfer's do. Every a LT go is let you play digital gamings offline.

I think you can not understand what a license transfer does. Any type of profile have the right to play any game license is granted to that console. So if he downloads it top top his key one then license transfers come his second (or a friend's) then somebody else can play the same video game on a various console at the same time. It additionally works v DLC. Once I log in on my friend's Xbox and also play CoD, I deserve to play on all the DLC maps due to the fact that my friend has actually them.


As much as I've learned, when you purchase digital gamings you gain two licenses, one for your profile and also one because that the console friend buy the video game in (or the very first where you download it, I've bought games on mi pc's browser). I deserve to play mine bought games on my back-up without a LT as lengthy as I'm logged in v my file in the console, but, let's say ns invite a friend over come play PVZ GW, he has to use his account (with yellow membership) and I have to use mine, because that him to play on my back-up console I'd need to have excellent a LT right?
