    My brother has had an Xbox 360 for a while now, but it never went online. His old account has a high score and achievements etc.

    Today we set up a connection to it and set up a Live Account. Only it was a different account. We're using the month free Gold trial.

    Is there any way to move the free trial onto his old account, or transfer the gamercard details (points etc) onto his new online account?

    You shouldnt have needed to set up a new account. :confused:

    He could have just changed his exisiting account to a gold account at any time, and if he wanted to change his gamertag he can do that via live too.

    Basically achievement points are NOT transferable.

    So the answer is NO as it stands :eek:

    ah well. Good thing he's getting his Xbox Live camera+12 months online thing for Christmas, just activate the 12 months thing with his old account. It's only 16 days off now after all!

    Actually I found the whole setting up Xbox Live experience a little drawn out, asking for phone numbers and having to type passwords in left right and centre - continuously. They need to bring out an official keyboard :p

    Wait, on the new live you can change your gamertag with your existing account, or do I have to start over...?
