    Hi guys. I was trying to set up my son an xbox live account last night and ran into a problem. Will I have to pay for 2 accounts if he and I each have an account? If so, that's a crock. It's not like we can both play at the same time on both accounts on the same system, and I'm sure as hell not buying a 2nd 360 just so we can. Thanks in advance.

    You'll only have to pay for his if you make it a gold account.

    I'll elaborate. After I put in his info, because of his age, it said I'd have to continue. I expected this. After I put in my info, it starts asking for my credit card info. Not gonna happen. They don't even have that for my account, and I'm not gonna put it in for his. Is there a reason/way around this?

    I think if you both want to play with your own separate Gamertags, you'll have to pay twice.

    I think.

    Edit.

    Yeah, I think its because you're paying for the XBL account, so if you have 2 LIVE enabled profiles, even if they're from the same system, you'll have to pay twice.

    You can play with 2 account at the same time.
    Games like Halo 3 allow it.

    Even a silver account (no multiplayer unless its a guest on a gold account and free) asks for credit card info for Live Marketplace. You can turn off purchases using the parental controls.
