Split screen live with USB stick?

I didn't know where to post this, but I figured more people frequent the BLOPS forum than any other around here. So here's my questions, if I buy a usb stick, can I load my live account and BLOPS info onto it, then log into it on my roommates 360 and play split-screen online with him? Or is that not possible? I don't see why it wouldn't work aside from the fact that it might deter activision from making money, so does anyone know?

NO you cannot load a Gold account on a USB. You will need to recover your account to his Xbox. Then you can play split-screen on your Gold account with him. No USB needed.

 

The USB is for arcade games/movies/DLC.

Say if you bought the Map Pack and he didn't. If you recover your account to his xbox and use your USB with the new maps on it you can both play on them.

Yes, that will work.

NO, that will not work. I have that same XBOX USB flash drive and you can not load a GOLD account on it and play somewhere else.

Yes, that will work.

So you can't load a gold account onto a USB? That makes it seem so pointless...

Yea I know. I thought it would work when they first came out with the official USB drives. But when you save your profile to the USB and try to play on a friends xbox. A pop-up window comes up and tells you that you must recover your account first. But the USB can be useful in other ways.

Gotcha. Thanks for the info guys! Great help!

I keep my profile on a little MU and have never had any issues when moving it around to different Xboxes.  Maybe you should just get one of those instead.

You CAN load your GOLD profile on a USB stick, I have done it many times when I go to my friends house plus when my xbox recently broke I put my profile on the USB and used it on my dads xbox until i got my xbox fixed. I should note I do not have a official xbox stick but a 4GB kingston configured with 256MB for the xbox.

No USB needed to play split screen with two gold accounts.
