Combine GFWL Account and Xbox Account

Hey there,

I was wondering if you can combine a 'Games for Windows Live'-Account and the Xbox Account.

The FAQ says, that it is possible to use the same Account for both.
Back as I created my Xbox account (last year) I tried to use the same Account, but that didn't work.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

You can't merge accounts together. I'm not sure where you read that you can't use the same account for both, but you can. You should be able to sign into GFWL with the same information you sign into your Xbox account and vice versa. I use the same account for both.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Well that's kinda sad.

You missread, I said, that you actually can use the same Account (-> FAQ said this), but when I tried it, it didn't work for me. It just said 'E-Mail address already in use' or something like that.

So there's no way? Whether combine nor linking?

Sorry, yeah I did missread it. But if you already created 2 accounts (1 for each) there's no way to merge them together. You would either have to just pick one of the 2 accounts to use or continue to use the separate accounts.
