    2 Xbox live accounts on one xbox?

    Hi All,
    My kids have been playing on my Xbox One. My son has basically stolen my account and is working his way through PvZ Garden Warfare 2. My daughter wants to play at the same time on the same Xbox, but has to keep starting as a guest.

    Is it possible to use 2 Xbox live accounts on the same Xbox at the same time, and do I have to pay for 2 lots of Xbox live?

    Ahhhh the joys of parenthoood.....



    Ta.... b0redom

    Yes, you can have as many (or at least if it is a limit it's huge) accounts as you want on the Xbox.

    The Xbox 360 forced you to have Live for each account, but with the One you can choose to"share" Live with everyone on a single Xbox.
