Xbox live specific 360 game issue HELP

Idk why but saints row 2 is the only 360 game on my series x that wont let me join or invite to a game. I have game pass and my friend can invite me to a game but if i try to join it says my account doesnt have gold? We even tried saints row 1 for 360 and multiplayer worked. We also tried another 360 game and that also didnt give us any problems. It is ONLY me that it says this to and ONLY with saints row 2. It makes zero sense.

I have tried uninstalling the game, resetting console, cycling the series x power, and everything. Also ive triedthe coop and multiplayer option from the main menu as well and it gives me a warning saying my profile is unable to play on xbox live. Again only with this game.

What happens if I redeem a bundle code for 2 games, but I already own 1?

I'd like to get Forza Horizon 3 ultimate edition, but the only bundle I found on a keysite that seems available is both Forza Horizon 3 ultimate edition, and Horizon 4 ultimate edition.

I already own Horizon 4, will it recognise if I activate the code or can it mess up something?

Question about adding months

Hello folks, I have a quick question I know with this transition to Xbox core I have a inquiry if I already have Xbox ultimate currently right now if I put in another 3-month ultimate code will it work? Or will it make me do it as core.

Basically I have a 3-month game pass ultimate code I'm wondering if I put it in if it will add to my current sub

Thanks all,

Multiple accounts on one console question.

I have Xbox live on my account, but I’ve gotten a room mate recently who wants to game under his own account. If he makes an account and logs in on my console, will he be able to play games that require live, or will he have to get his own subscription?

Can y’all prorate my live subscription when your shit goes down? I don’t expect much from you but I pay a fee to use your servers. I do the 3 months at a time plan which is pure profit for you. Is it too much to ask to pay a nerd some over time to make sure the only thing you offer actually works. I mean goddamn you provide a link to an abstract concept of a product. Make it work or kill yourself. If I paid a fast food franchise and they said “tough shit try again later” blah blah blah, incriminating statement blah blah blah, I’d throw a Molotov into their grease trap. Fuck, give me what I’m paying for or stop offering your subpar services. You don’t deserve to get rich off this product. I work hard to earn my measly-ass peasant wage and I’m so let down by you didn’t even create the service you so poorly manage. You know what never mind. I’m obviously blowing smoke at corporate bitches who can’t wipe their own ass anyways. Fuck all of you I hope your kids never learn how to read and if they do know how to read I hope they get dementia at puberty so they forget how to read, and then something else aweful. Fuck you.

So xbox core just came out, yet I don't see a year subscription for it. Can i still buy the 12 month xbox live gold card and it still work even though it is switched to care already? (It says online that people already with gold automatically get core, but my subscription just ran out today) please let me know if you figure anything out!

Ex is still using my Visa Debit for XBL, Microsoft can't help??

I broke up with an ex a few years ago. My (visa debit) card was linked to their account. I've changed my card, but Visa just automatically updates the card on the Microsoft account to the new card. I've disputed the transactions but my bank says there is no fraud taking place. I've spoken to Microsoft support and they say there is nothing I can do. I'm sick of paying for my exes shit. Has anyone else run into this? I can't be the only one.

Short of changing banks, what can I do to get out of this??

xbox social

Is there a way to disable the friends/xbox social tab on the bottom right..? and to stop it loading like you can in steam..?

Beta testers with continuous memberships should be rewarded.

I have been on Xbox Live since the beta test. I never let my account lapse. Now that Xbox Live will no longer be a thing, there should be some recognition for us OG members.

Can’t link Xbox account & Steam account?

Remove if this isn’t the right sub, but wasn’t sure where to post and haven’t had any luck with google. I play on PC mostly and had to make an Xbox live account today to play State of Decay 2. I did so, and tried linking my steam account as prompted to play with my friends, and I keep recieving the same error message saying “Uh oh, we encountered a problem. Please try again later.”

I reinstalled steam and State of Decay. Ive tried on PC and on mobile, getting error messages on both. I messaged Xbox support and got nothing (tbf it is a Sunday), so I’m trying here. Am I missing something? Should I make another Xbox account with the same email as my steam account (I made a new Microsoft email for the Xbox account)? Any advice appreciated!

Edit** I found a work around but will leave this up unless removed in case any one else encounters this issue. I added my friend on Xbox through their website, and was able to invite them once in a loaded game. I’m still unable to access my Steam friends list, but will use this method if I need to add anyone else.

Couldn't post to halo subreddit, so posting here as it's about xbox live and the sign in loop freeze

I tried so many different solutions except reinstalling the game and windows.


This one fucking worked. And it's so old i can't upvote or comment on it. So i'm posting here, in case someone else was in the same situation.

Looking for headphones recommendations

I had a set of Turtle Beach headphones that had a connection to my TV and Xbone controller. They were super nice in that I could watch a movie on the TV and not have to plug into the controller to hear it but could also use them for online gaming.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a new headset that has both connections to the TV and controller?

Looking for people to join my party and play Shredders Revenge

Come join my party! I got a headset if anyone wants to actually talk. Playing on Xbox but cross play is totally fine by me!

Streaming services aren't streaming

So last night, mid show, my stream locked up on HBO Max. I switched over to Netflix, and still no stream. I checked every service I have, nada. I have access to the dashboards of each, I can see every title, no problem. I hit watch, and nothing. I've turned the router off and back on.
I've switched the connection (I have a 2.4 Ghz and a 5 Ghz connection). When I check, Xbox says I have 100% performance on both.
I've logged all devices off the services and logged back in.
I unplugged the Xbox, which updated as soon as I turned it back on.
These services work fine on my phone, but not my Xbox.
What else am I missing here?

Microsoft Hear My Plea - Upping Support for Below-S-Tier Events, Emerging Casters/Creators & More, Across the Entire Age of Empires Series!

I think that if we really want the grass roots of the games to grow and succeed there needs to be more support for the lower end of the TO (tournament official) and caster community. While yes, we could talk about MS or corporate esports partners actually hiring or sponsoring more TO and casters, especially those that have already taken steps to be casters/TO’s voluntarily and/or put their own money into tournaments. I think a good start that isn’t going to cost much or potentially anything is allowing for more promotion of non official/non-ms-sponored tournaments and broadcasters over the official MS channels (forums, website articles, official AoE discord posts). Especially for regional events. I would also like to know if it is a possibility for MS to look at the project Celeste Aoeo server as an investment in the series and genre and a way to reap company goodwill by also allowing for promotion of Aoeo on the official MS channels once again.

It’s not a secret that there have been half a dozen top 50 aoe4 players coming from the AoE title that lives in the most obscurity and has the smallest playerbase, and that the pre-public-release tournaments were dominated by them too.

While I do not wish to insult the “success stories” of aoe commentary such as T90 or Aussiedrongo, I do believe that their prominence actually hurts the social media reach of new generation casters both in their original titles and in aoe4. And I wonder if there could be more done to support creators such as Harrison, Widgie and Lionheart for aoe3 supremacy for instance, or say for the aoe2 and 3 Deathmatch communities, aom TOs and casters in either supremacy or DM (like Meta Plays, Boit and IronMaiden). Rising Empires in aoeIV, or even Project Celeste affiliated creators.

It’s nice to see support for the Deathmatch world cup in aoe2 from the top end, but what about Deathmatch in aoe2 the rest of the year round, or in other titles? Especially in AoM, which used to see events several times a year thanks to Nakamura and Meta Plays. Yet that’s all on hold until AoM retold, or an act of God encourages new growth in the format and community. They have also had to put their aoe4 presence on hold due to a lack of viewership and again I think whether or not MS gets financially involved, these implosions may have been prevented with better social media coverage from MS official channels or from the most established creators in the series.

I would like to know if it would be okay for people affiliated with Aoeo to try reach out to esports teams and tech companies for corporate sponsorship without concern that it’s going to cause a legal shitstorm with MS

I know I’m probably the biggest loudmouth to have any form of competitive or broadcasting profile in the series, but I do believe my concerns are valid and a way to encourage growth across every game and every format in the series.

I was looking up my previous enforcement history and I saw that the only thing I have is a 2 day comms ban with the reason literally saying “fuck you”

Now, how should I interpret this? Did I say it in vc? Did I send it via message? I honestly don’t know, it happened last year :p

Xbox Live Ultimate Friends & Family

Anyone know if they're releasing this in the US any time soon? My current live subscriptions run out on the 31st, and between the wife, 2 kids and myself all with our own Xbox, I'd much rather wait until they release it so I'm not paying nearly $60 a month.

So I found a 10+ year old Xbox Live 12-Month Membership Card

I was unpacking some boxes and I came across a really old xbox360 12-month Live God Membership Card. It's probably from 2010, or earlier. But I don't play xbox anymore.

What will happen if I try to redeem it? Is there any way to convert it to cash, or the microsoft store equivalent?

I thought about just redeeming it and hoping it would work for xbox gamepass, but didn't want to activate it and discover that it's only for xbox and waste it.

Gold Code Question

Just bought 2, 1 year xbox live gold cards and went to redeem the second one. It said it conflicts with my subscription so can I only use 1 at a time or are they still stackable?

Two consoles

Just looking for some clarification. We have two Xbox. One in our theater room and one in my daughters room.

My son and I only play in the theater room. My daughter will play in both places.

Who’s account should have Xbox live and which console should be set as the home console.

Trying to only have one live subscription if possible. The chances of us both wanting to be online at the same time are very slim. But there is always the chance she might want to game online with me using a separate console

Suspended for this?

I've been a paying xbl member since launch. That's almost 20 years. Then I get an unappealable 48hr suspension for a destiny 2 LFG that said "Non flawless, 1.0+, checking". What is going on?

00:04 UTC


question about enforcement history from anyone who might know.

I got a suspension January of this year for sending a childish message to someone calling them a "bitch" anyways I shouldn't have done that and haven't done it since almost a year now since the incident. Now I never knew Xbox keeps track of this and I just found out today. It never bothered me all that much before but now that I see it under "enforcement history" it bothers me so much. I'm debating about starting from scratch. My fear is that in the future I could get banned if this happens again, maybe? Anyways does anyone know if this will effect me long term? Could this one mistake come back to haunt me like it did today. Should I start fresh? Is the OCD getting to me too much?

Billing problem

So I had a problem with my account billing due to a lack of funds which happened last Sunday. So I'm without gamepass gold until I get paid tomorrow.

My question is, why didn't Microsoft contact me? I'd have paid the bill last Monday had I been informed. A simple text message or console notification or anything.

I canceled game pass and RDR2 is giving me grief about it. All hard saves for the past year have disappeared. I've had at least a Xbox Live Gold membership since 2012. What gives?

Is there a way to add a custom gamertag when making a new account?

I'm making a new account and when I have in the past it's auto-assigned a gamertag, and I've had to use my free name change when assigning a new gamertag. Is it possible to make an account and enter a handle in the beginning so I can hold onto my one free change for later?
