My wife and I recently purchased the newer Xbox 360, the one that's compatible with Kinect with the built in Wi-Fi. So we both transferred our Xbox Live accounts over to the new system. Next we proceeded to go through our download history and started downloading and installing all of our purchased content from our previousXxbox. This is where it gets confusing.
I go to play Mass Effect. My wife had purchased it on her previous xbox and it is conncted to her XBL account. She can play it fine when she is online with her profile. But when I log onto my profile with a different gamrtag. I can't play the game. Which is strange because I have purchases linked to my gamertag that she can play on her account. The example being Vigilante 8 for Arcade.
And just in case this is an issue with non arcade games, my wife has also purchased Fable 2 on her account, but that is a game I can play just fine if I log into my profile.
So long story short. Is this something that only occurs with certain games because of licensing issues or am I just not taking the proper steps to play the game.
Any help or insight would be much appreciated.
