**Warning it may be that I am being a fuckwit**

My 2 boys have been harping on about getting a 360 for a few months now. We told them to save their money and if they got any money over Easter they could buy it. Anyway I used my Game share money to buy them one.

Anyway other than the 4 hours it took me to try and setup an account for 1 kid on Sunday I appeared to have it up and running (with parental controls). I have then tried to add a 2nd account for child number 2. This is where my problem comes.

They have been trying to play with their cousin online at Minecraft, however it is saying that 1 signed in user isn't allowed to play Online. Do I have to gave a Gold for both accounts using the same console? Can you not play as a Guest?

Cheers

Spoken with Xbox support.

Firstly, I should have chosen Xbox Home Gold (although its not actually available for the 360). Then I was told I would need to give both boys a gold subscription. I thne asked about the "guest" option. This is available but not on every game.

The short of it. Microsoft are dicks and Mojang are also dicks and I am going to have to buy another gold sub

Sounds like you need a PS3 :-D

I believe you get 30 free days when you make a new Xbox account so just make a new one every month, a bit of a pain in the backside but I guess your boy does not care about achievement

They already have my PS3 but more of their friends seem to have a 360.

Sounds like a plan, he is on the free month at the moment and I remember sometimes they give you a good deal the following month, so I will see what happens

At least you can save a bit of money on the second gold sub by going through CD Keys.

Yeah minecraft needs at least one account to play in split screen and at the higher resolution.

I've encountered the same with my two boys. However I've found they can still play after one of the subs expires
