I'm pretty sure this is legal but if it's not, let me know. I hope it won't cause my friend and I to get banned or anything.

Anyways, my friend wants me to do him a favor using his gamertag (playing Gears 3 to unlock the Golden weapons that are available during the first week only). I asked if I could use his gamertag to download some content I don't already own and he said it's fine and that I can even do a license transfer.

1. Can I still use the content I download using his gamertag on my console and without doing the license transfer?

2. Can I still use it even if I delete his gamertag off my harddrive? I know I'll only be able to play the content offline and that's fine.

3. Can more than 1 license transfer be done on 1 console? I just bought the Gears 3 360 bundle last night and have to do a license transfer for myself. I also want to do it using my friend's gamertag so I can use his content.

Thanks.

He would have had to transfer his gamertag onto your 360, THEN buy the content.

If he already bought the content, the only way you would be able to use it on your xbox is if hes signed into Live at the time on your xbox.

^ yep.

The dlc works on the first xbox in which you bought the stuff. And you can move your GT to other Xboxes and use it on other xboxes as long as the GT is online on those other xboxes.

You can do a license transfer every 121 days IIRC.

What about doing a license transfer to use the dlc without staying online using his gamertag?
