Hi sorry I've got a silly question, Google doesn't seem to help which is weird ...

Say off I've got 2 xbox ones, both have all digital games on one account.

I presume you can play different games at the same time

Can you play the same games offline at the same time without need to tweak like pull out the Ethernet cable to do that

Use another account on the Xbox. Add yours as a 2nd and it becomes a secondary/family Xbox and can play the same games at the same time.

Designate the Xbox you're gonna use your profile on, make the other Xbox the home Xbox.

 

The home Xbox, anyone can use your content on regardless of being offline or online, using any gamertag/account. Any account can also share your Xbox Live Gold subscription on this console.

 

The other Xbox, you can only use your content when you're signed into Xbox Live on that console, and anyone who wishes to use that console will also need Xbox Live Gold to play online, and I'm unsure if they will be able to use your content even IF you are signed in (I've never tested this).





Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.
