I got a Series X preordered. I was unable to secure the Series S for my son but after some thinking I think I'll get him his own series x through the all access option

The trouble is that the game pass will add to your account that signs up to the policy if you go all access. So your kid will be gamepass-less and you'll be sitting on like three years of ultimate. Let me know if you find a way around it because I want to do the same thing

Huh? Surely both of them can use the ultimate. Just set the kid's console as Baddman's home console.

You can set your son's machine as your home Xbox, but turn off auto sign in. He will have access to all your gamepass/live privliges on his machine. Then you can turn on auto sign in on your own machine for your account, but don't set your machine as the home consol. You should be good to go then on both machines with one gamepass subscription.

yes I was about to say we already share my game-pass subscription on his one s and my fat Xbox.Technically I pay for or game-pass sub through  his mothers Microsoft account which is what he uses for his Xbox. 



It took ten scary minutes, but I did manage to get a preorder

Sadly though walmart says it will be two days late so I might be getting a ps5 and xbox on the same day
