gamertag = Chromnicon


Can someone tell me, is it possible to share gamertag / profile on two consoles?

I set up my 360 in the office with my gamertag and then I set up the 360 in my bedroom with the same gamertag (by recovering it from xbox live).

However when I went to play xbox live back in the office it wouldn't let me connect to live. I recovered gamertag and it worked again.

Back into bedroom and low and behold would'nt let me connect. AGhhhhhhh

Does that mean I have to have a different gamertag for each 360?

Ouch. Looks like it. Or put your GT save on a MU and load from that.

you should be able to use your tag on any system. contact the live support team and they will fix the problem no doubt

Just an update guys. I contacted Microsoft support few minutes ago.

You can use your live tag on any console unfortunetly you have to recover it everytime you switch machine.

It's the only way that it can keep track of your achievements / gamer profile I guess. It's a damn bloody pain though.

I was advised to jsut create another profile. But that sucks ass as it means my downloaded marketplace stuff is invalid on the other console and also means I would have to pay for gold membership twice.

The woman suggested I just create a new one each month and that way I get free gold membership (using the month trial each time) that's too much hassle too.

Oh well.

No 360 (yet) but I'd be up for some Halo 2, Ghost Recon (2 and Summit), and any of the Rainbow Six games.

GT = Dave The Nugget

And yeah, the clan thing sounds cool. I just don't know how bad Im gonna suck at Halo 2 against anyone on here.... I suck!

I am on a regular old Xbox, but I only play Halo 2 on Live, so I could still play with most of you.
