So you are planning a big game day with some of your family members. You live in Boston and they live in New York. You decide to leave your 360 at home because you know that they have one at their house. You get to your family’s house and everybody is talking about how great they play street fighter but no one has enough ms points to get the game from the marketplace. You tell them you have the HD remix version of the game and they laugh you to scorn. They laughed you to scorn because you left your 360 at home in Boston – How the heck are you gonna get the full version of the game that night to own your family members with guile or chunli?
- Turn on their box and recover your gamertag
- Sign in
- Hit the menu button (the button between back & select)
- Go to settings
- Account Management
- Download History
and download the full game again in the download history. If they try to play the game as themselves, since they do not have the full game they will only be able to play it as a demo. Since you own the game it will play as the full game and you will own them in New York before you head back to Boston.
I recently called and asked if this was possible for me to do, and the customer service people who are getting paid to have the right information told me that this was not possible to do. They told me that I can only play the game at home since that is where I downloaded it first. Wrong! Your arcade licenses aren’t married to your 360, they are married to your gamertag/account which can be recovered from any 360. This feature is great because you don’t have to take your 360 with you everywhere you go. I hope this helps and feel free to leave some feedback.
