Additional Gamer Tags under main account

We have had the Xbox 360 for awhile but my sons were too young to "friend" anyone.  That has changed, and now I want to set up their own gamer tags.   I have tried looking through the Xbox settings as well as on Xbox.com and have only found how to add accounts to Xbox One.  Both boys have their own avatars.  I looked online and it suggested that I have to create Microsoft accounts for both boys and then sign up.  Will they still be associated with the XBOX Live account that I have?  If they want to play against each other (e.g. multiplayer MineCraft), do they both have to sign in and then play?  Also, will I be the administrator for the account as both boys are under 18?

Probably easy stuff but we are just starting to wade into the world on-line gaming with friends.

Thanks,

JT

Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 1 Applies to:

I have this same issue and need to figure out whether I can add my two sons to my Live account with their own gamertags. We are brand-new to the world of xbox, and the boys were telling their friends about it, and so I need to figure out how to get them playing with their friends.

Anyone in the know will make a couple of families happy! Thanks for any help-
