To clear up the Lego Star Wars question: Yes, it has online co-op. There's an Xbox Live option right on the main menu. I just searched for games, and there are ten or so in session right now. Alternatively you can invite a friend while you're playing the game solo.

Is there a way to create an offline account for a child on an xbox? Every time I try to add an account it wants it tying to an email address - shes 8.

When I go into family mode it still wants an email address, am I being extremely dense here?

No, I don't think it's possible. It has to be created through an MS account.

Have you considered buying a Switch?

What a bloody stupid design choice. I just downloaded Minecraft for her and I just want her to play on an offline account that isnt connected to a bank account. Wankers.

I set my lad (7years) up his own email account so he could have his own Xbox account. Obviously I have the password for it and he doesn't use it.

Yeah, it doesn't have to be linked to a bank account. And I assume you can set parental controls so she can't go online.

If I do that and create and account with an email address, will it be able to play the game I downloaded on my account?

I think so. I've never used the family sharing thing. Way to make me feel bad on a Friday night.

What subtle but helpful extra's do you think Scorpio can add to games?
I think games in 1080p will benefit quite a lot from faster loading due to the extra memory the machine has that can simply be used as a super speedy drive.

Titanfall 2 for 15 wraps seems to be the highlight in the latest deals this week. Mafia 3 for 18 doesn't seem too terrible either.

I'll take the phantom dust dlc but i have the rest elsewhere; hopefully there'll be more freebies around e3, they gave away tekken tag tournament 2 last year i think.

Their Ass Creed fascination is starting to grate. Happy with Watch Dogs though, had it on PS4 but got a bit sick of it, crap story and awful characters.
