    Who here plays Xbox and has an online account?

    I play both the 360 and One, although I don't have live for the 360.

    Feel free to add me, my gamertag is "John Majest"

    Majestic. You do know that you can use the same gold live account on both and have both on at the same time (although I wouldn't recomend having two headsets on at the same time).

    So lets see I understand correctly. If you add gold to your xbox one, your account will have live on the Xbox 360 as well? Only reason I ask is I thought they removed this exploit for games with gold.

    I've got one, but it's currently deactivated. Probably will get it up and rolling again once I move out west next week. Tag is Warrior Zelph.

    Zelph, I'll be playing Halo Reach soon enough on my Xbox One. How?

    Coming next month:
    http://www.xbox.com/en-AU/xbox-one/backward-compatibility

    Good news is digital games are also included in this. Additional good news you can play 360 games on your Xbox One with players who are playing it on the 360.

    I say this should had been available this time last year. Still it's good that it's finally coming in.

    Howdy. My Xbox tag is Assimil8ed. I already have Majestic as a friend (did this when I set up Windows 10 on my PC). Anyone else here is welcome to friend me.

    I do have a question though. I logged in to claim a game from the Games with Gold list and it still shows the regular price tag. I signed up for the 30 free trial but do have an active subscription. Does it show the discounted price at check out? I am new to this so I don't know how it works.

    I don't think trials count mate. Unfortunately. You can pick up subscription cards off ebay cheaper than paying through the Xbox site itself. ;)

    It actually did work. I tried through the Xbox and they downloaded at no charge. I do plan on getting a years subscription card through ebay though.

    Maybe someone here can help my out. I have Xbox Live Gold (been getting the free games) but, every time I try to get on any online game (Neverwinter and even tried WWE online mode) I keep getting sent to purchase a Live subscription. I checked my subscription status on Xbox/Microsoft and it shows that gold is active. I did sign up for the 30 free trial but I do have a payment option active and the next payment will be on the 1st. Should I wait til after the first before I panic or do I need to get in touch with Microsoft?

    I would personally call Microsoft support. It sounds like there's something wrong with your account.
