    Text tutorial.

    1. You want to recover the persons gamertag whos buying you the game on your xbox.
    2. Then you want to download the game you want.
    You can play it because it was the first xbox to be downloaded on which lets everyone on your xbox play it.
    3.After the download, your friend will have to recover his gamertag.
    4. After the recovery, your friend will have to download the game by going to Account Management and then Download History.
    Your friend can play the game too because he is the owner but since it was downloaded on your xbox, its the original xbox.
    5. You can now delete your friends profile from your xbox. Remember to chose delete profile only because then you will lose the game.
    6.YOU'RE DONE!!


    This is my second tutorial so please go easy.

    3.After the download, your friend will have to recover his gamertag.
    4. After the recovery, your friend will have to download the game by going to Account Management and then Download History.
    Your friend can play the game too because he is the owner but since it was downloaded on your xbox, its the original xbox.
    5. You can now delete your friends profile from your xbox. Remember to chose delete profile only because then you will lose the game.

    Um....what? So, what you're saying is, you buy the game for him on your console so you can play it? Or it's like PS3 how you just sign into his account and download it? Either way that means he can't play it and he'd have to do the license transfer in order to play it.

    Can't you just do it that way? Recover his gamertag then go to the xbox support site and do the license transfer method?

    He doesnt need to license transfer. He just has to go to account management, download history, then re-download the game you installed. Watch my video!!

    Really? O_O. Wow, thanks for telling me that. I was like, really sure that it had to be done by license transfer and you can only do it with the person 1 time per year.

    Your welcome. By the way, I actually found this out yesterday with my friend. He gave me Doom, I made a game with zobies in it, avatar ninja, and avatar karate. The thing that sucks is that your friend needs microsoft points, its not a license transfer.

    I only have two questions.

    1.Do you have to get the persons main account or can they make another account and download the games from there ?

    2.Can the account be silver if you try downloading the stuff ?

    LISTEN TO ME! I KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!

    I've done this method for over a year. For well over 16,000 (not 1600) MSP worth of stuff.

    The ORIGINAL download signs to the ORIGINAL XBOX 360 that it was first downloaded onto, as well as the account it was purchased on NO MATTER WHAT! That's why I let my friends use my account to buy what I want on their consoles first because it's 2 for one and DOESN'T REQUIRE A LICENSE TRANSFER! You're basically doing a quick version of a license transfer, that's unlimited.

    As long as its downloaded on your profile. You can recover it on any xbox by re-downloading it. I tried it already.
