X-Box 360/XBL Problem

Recommended Posts

My brother just got a 360 and created an account, but when he tries to play a game online, it says "Microsoft has an important message" or something similar and gives him two options: Go to account management to read it, or continue offline.

He goes to account management, and there's nothing there except the usual stuff. But whenever he goes back to the game it just gives him the same message. He can play it fine offline.

Any ideas?

Fixed it, because I'm the greatest brother ever.

All you have to do (in case anyone else under18 has this problem) is go into Family Settings and then Live Settings and allow Original XBox games.

For some reason, Microsoft thought it would be better if they blocked under 18's from playing original XBox games online. :wtf:

There's a load of other shit blocked as well (some of which I can actually see the point in, but most of which is just wrapping your kid in cotton wool while online), so just unblock it all.
