    I dont even understand how this works? Are you still paying for it? Basically i have minecraft xbox360 i bought it on my xbox, Well my friend who wants the game lives with me so i wana give it to him on his xbox. Explain how i would do this because that tutorial says im supposedly "Buying" it for my friend. Which is not what im trying to do. I want to give him minecraft 360 for FREE? any help?

    We're going to call the person buying the game Buyer, and the person getting it for free Leecher.



    Recover Buyer's gamertag on Leecher's Xbox.
    Buyer obviously buys it on Leecher's Xbox.
    Leecher's xbow now has the game.
    Buyer recovers his gamertag back to his own Xbox.
    Buyer looks through his download history and redownloads the game on his own Xbox.
    Both Buyer and Leecher now have the game.

    In short, I'm not sure it can work for you. Though you can maybe do the download history trick, but I don't think that works.

    Like it said, the download history thing MIGHT work.

    Person who has the game = One Person who is getting it = Two

    Two recovers One's gamertag on his own Xbox
    Has both signed in at the same time.
    Two uses One's account to go One's download history.
    while still there, Two signs out of One's account.
    Two can still use his won account to scroll through One's download history.
    Two downloads the game from One's DL history.

    Someone told me that that doesn't work I think though. There's a thread on it somewhere for this, try asking there.

    this is a complete fail. This does not work. Like i said with the new dash it doesnt so stop trying to rewrite "how to do it" because it wont work unless you can transfer the purchase license over. You must not understand how it works now

    I just did what i outlined above yesterday for a **** ton of DLC.

    I'm saying I don't know if it works for full games. But if you're going to snap at someone trying to help you, go right ahead, I"m sure you'll go far.

    What if -
    1. Friend's gamertag is recovered.
    2. I go into download history and download a game.
    3. I sign into my account, I can then play the game.

    My friend did this with another friend of mine to get minecraft, and so I tried it out with a game called "Bastion". At first, I couldn't play the full game, so I signed into my other friends account again (Didn't delete yet) and went into the game, then I signed back into my account and I can play it now. Is this that license transfer thing? I don't know. I already did this and got an achievement from Bastion but I don't want to get banned or anything. Thanks guys!

    Not the topic to post on here.

    But I know how to help you. Get on your friends account and scroll over to settings, then select manage account or something. There should be a license tranfer thing. Click it and transfer. Now you should be able to use ANYTHING your friend has downloaded when you download it from him.
