Buying arcade games for children/other

Hi,

I'm single father who often visits his 7 year old daughter. We are both Xbox gamers however I am online with an Gold account and she isn't online at all.

 

Is it possible to download arcade games for her and install them on her Xbox?

I'm trying to figure out the best way to answer the question. I hope it makes sense.

 

When you purchase content you also download a license that is tied to the gamertag that purchased the content as well as the console that purchased the content. So it's not possible to download a game under your account and then install it to her Xbox and have it work. You would have to download it through her account.

 

However, if you were to download them through her account on your Xbox and then install the games on her Xbox, her account would have to be connected to Live in order to be able play them (it doesn't have to be a Gold account, just connected).

 

In order to download them and have all the licenses connected properly, you'd have to connect her xbox to the internet and download them through her account.

Her Xbox hasn't got internet at all at her mum's... Can I not download her account onto an memory stick upload onto my xbox and buy her games and download onto the memory stick like that?

Sorry that wouldn't work either. The only thing that would work in this situation is if you took her entire xbox to your house and then bought the games on her console.
