My nephew is bringing his offline Xbox 360 round to download some arcade titles. I haven't decided yet whether to download the games to both his console (offline licence), and my console (online licence), or just to his console. But either way, I'll need to download the games to his console first I think. But I'm assuming his Xbox profile will be an offline one. So how does that work? If I log in to Xbox Live on his Xbox with his profile, does it need to be converted into an online profile or something? And if so, would that cause any kind of problem when he played the games offline at home?
I was originally planning ondownloading the content to what will be an offline console, and then re-downloading the content to my own console, to be played using my online gamertag. But now I'm wondering if I should just download the content to the offline console, and then it could still also be downloaded to some other online console as well, at a later date.
But if I chose to just download marketplace content to what will be an offline console (thus meaning that the content could still be downloaded to some other online console), and something later went wrong with that console and it had to be fixed or replaced, would I be able to re-download that content to the new console? And if I could, then would that new download still be the console licence, or would it be the gamertag licence (which would be no good, because the console would have to be online)?
EDIT: It now seems that the Licence Transfer Tool could rescue the static (offline) licenced content on a replacement console should the need arise. So with that being the case, would it not matter if I downloaded the content to my online Xbox anyway? Apart from choosing not to so that there was a "spare" online liecence?
