    You often see people on live with with 2 characters with similar names i.e; clarky and clarky[1]. Is there a way to get a friend on for 2 player games? When my brother or friends come round we want to play GOW online or PGR etc, but they dont own 360's so don't need a proper account.

    Also i have 3x 2day live passes and all of them came back as duff when signing up, what gives?

    Some games allow split-screen same console on-line playing. Top of my head, Perfect Dark Zero, GOW, ? allow this.

    Can they not get a free silver account ? If you set them up on the 360 I belive they get the gold features for a month free.

    Thanks for replies. Sure we tried this and it insisted both signed in players have a live account, but i'll try again. Not aware you could sign 2 players in as same account..?

    I tried the 2 day ones, set up as new gamertags, surely that should work as a new profile?

    OK tried it, no good.

    I can't log in player two with my gamertag as it's grey'd out because i'm using it.

    I know in GOW you have to sign in on your live account, then go through the GOW menu - iirc go to versus, then whatever option you want, ranked, host, etc. After that last menu it should give you the option to press Y to sign in a guest profile - obviously make sure the 2nd controller does that last bit.

    That's basically what you do - hope it helps :)
