Gameshare is an interesting feature of the Xbox gaming console. It helps you play more games while saving money. With the Game sharing feature, you and your friend or family can share the game. With this, you get the chance to play massive game titles. If you prefer taking advantage of game sharing, you need to have two Xbox game consoles. Also, the friend or the person you share the account with should be trustworthy because it involves sharing the entire digital gaming library. Sharing credentials is something that we don’t recommend often. But in this case, when it comes to Gameshare on the Xbox console, there is no other way to do that. With game sharing, you could even share your Xbox Live Gold account. So let’s see how to Gameshare on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in this article.

Tips Before you Gameshare
