How to Purchase

I wish to purchase Minecraft for my son. If I buy points under my account (Parent) and buy the game and download it under my account will my son be able to play it and use his Xbox Live account to access any online features. I'm concerned that if I buy it he wont have access and I'll be wasting my money

If you buy the game with your account, any other account in the same console will be able to play the game and use all its features, including the multiplayer. Just remember that of your son's account must have a gold membership in order to play online multiplayer.

Points can only be used on the account that they are on. So if you were to add points to your son's account to take part in a deal of the week promotion, you would have to make the purchase on his account.
