Left feeling a little dissapointed and ripped off

Hi all,

 

just thought i would share my dissapointment with you all and see if anyone has experienced the same thing.

I have had my xbox for over 4 years not and me and my son both have an account with gold membership on my console.  we purchase a lot of dlc like new maps for cod and arcade games and both enjoy playing them.

 

i recently decided to line the pocket of microsoft by buying a new 360 slim console and also a 250gb hard drive and data transfer lead. I transfered all our data over and everything went ok, that was until my son came to play the new maps on cod.  Because they had been originally downloaded on my account he now no longer has access to them and will also have to shell out 1200 points to get them unless he plays on my account.

I read up on the terms and conditions of dlc and it does state that dlc will will exclusive to the account it was downloaded to first and the console it was originally downloaded too but sureley this should carry over to a new console if you buy a new one and the lead to move everything over.

 

Just wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences as today i feel a little annoyed that i have spent a good whack of money and will now have to shell out again for points for my son to play dlc on his account 

thanks for reading and sorry for going on i put it in words best i could!!

 

Question Info


Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 6 Applies to:

I've had something similar. I've got my old Xbox 360 registered in the Netherlands (Played on PS3 for the past 2 years btw), and after about 4 years it died. Than I got a new Slim, 250GB and a transfer cable for my old Xbox.

About 5 months ago I went to buy the First Strike map pack, so I bought some points and redeemed it. When I went to buy the map pack, it came with the message 'Not available in your country', as my Live account was registered in the Netherlands and I moved to Belgium. I went back to NL and downloaded it, which was absolutely strange for me.

After calling Microsoft once again, I've had to create a new Belgium account, to download the Escalation map pack on. That worked for me, and also worked on my other account.

Don't know if it helps you by the way, but good luck.

[/quote]DLC is tied both to the account used to buy it and the console it was first downloaded on.

 

To make the DLC 'belong' to your new console, which will enable your son to use it again, you will have to run the License Migration Tool.

In the Future, I have heard that you can download the DLC to his console first, then download it again to your console, but it will require you to recover your gamertag to his- download, recover to yours and download again. It only works once, so if you get a third xbox it won't work anymore.

Like Biscuitz0r said,  just do a license transfer and all the accounts on your new console will be able to play previously downloaded DLC.

Green eyed leo. Doing that is theft of market place content and could lead to a console ban for both consoles.

click on the link and follow the steps. just a bit of advice when the list of downloads comes up tick EVERYTHING. I did the migration and didn't select two games. once I realised I tried to run it again but it has a stand down period before you can do it again, I think it was like 3 months or something stupid so I had to wait all that time before I could get the two games back

Thanks for the help guys kind of sorted it. Found out about the 3 month stand down period only problem is you can only transfer 30 items over at one time and i had a lot more than that so just had to choose my top 30 i use the most for now.  Cant do the others till sept.  And i forgot to choose the 1st map pack for black ops.  I did the 2 nd ones but not the 1st ones. What a dingbat!!! cheers for the help guys
