We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
they are not lnked to the credit card and can not make purchases or downloads. They mey experience some restrictions on what they can download (mature content) etc. For me it works fine. I just have to punch in the password when they want to do something
that they can not do. If they get a points card, they can add it to their account, or you can put it on the primary and gift it to them in 400 pt incriments.
I have a family pack. The only thing I can not do, is making a purchase of MS points or games on demand for a $ amount.
I can play mature games, indie games, download demos, play online etc, with no issues.
When a new TOU comes out I do need to put in the Primary wlid and password, but that is not an issue for me or those on the family pack.
The other accounts are not really child accounts from what I have noticed.. Just really secondaries. They can still play mature games which child accounts can not.
Just make sure that all parties know their wlid and passwords before jumping into a family pack or it could cause some issues. I know a few friends who didn't make sure on this one.. And were well.. They have to spend extra time getting those reset. But,
then again it is good to know that info anyway, and it is up to us (the gamers) to know our account info, and wlid's and passwords.. etc.
I love my family pack! I highly recommend them to my friends and family.
The family pack is, like most gold subscriptions, something that will charge you each year. So do keep an eye on when your gold runs out so you don't go over on your bank account or anything like that.
