Multiple home Xbox Ones

I think that Microsoft should allow a player to set up to two home Xbox Ones. I know I'm not the only person with this idea, and many forums have agreed with me. Myself, being a teenager with divorced parents, have two Xboxes: One at my mom's house, and one at my dad's. I use each of them equally, but the other Xbox is used by another person just as much. If I could set both of these to be my home Xbox, then when somebody starts playing a game, it wouldn't sign me out of the game I'm playing, since most purchases are on my account, and they would need to sign in on my account to play. I can understand Microsoft's worry about people just sharing one profile that has many different games, therefore lowering their profit, but I think that two Xboxes is a rather fair argument. In exchange, instead of it being one home Xbox that you can change three times a year, make it two home Xboxes that you can change twice a year (each one once). This way, people won't necessarily share the account with their friends, but people who are like me and have two Xboxes, can use each one as a home Xbox.

    I too, now have two xbox's. I am the dad in the family and my wife and I have a console that we play in our basement while our daughters have their xbox upstairs. We are all linked on xbox live as a family. They all gold share off of my account. The games are all purchased on my account. We played a fun game of kicking eachother out of games because apparently for them to play the games I bought them, I couldn't be signed in playing a game on the other console myself. This Eliminates the point of having the two systems..... With out a fix, we are going to be selling our xboxes and buying PS4's or alienware alpha consoles. So done with this.

    Can't you just put a password on your account? That way if someone goes to play a game on the other xbox they need your password.....and you wouldn't be auto signed out

    @OptionalAura89: How can someone sign you off using the other XBox? That'd mean he/she uses your account/profile. That's not the idea. Every user should actually use its own profile.

    I understand the reason why this is limited to one but now that the 1st X is out we need to do something to give us better access to our library. My son has to have me login to our OG Xbox before he can play games we own since I made our 1 X the home console.

    Do you guys really think they are going to give you a second free game. Be grateful that you alreayd receive live and two games for one.

    I'm in the same boat as another commenter here. I'm a father with 2 children and we have 3 xbox's in the house. Because I can only be signed into one, and 'home' the other xbox I cannot have all three playing the games that have been purchased under my live ID, so it because unusable on many occasions (including kids birthday parties). Please have the option to allow multiple xboxs maybe on the same subnet/network or something!!

    I'm a father with 2 children. All 3 of us have our own xbox now. There is no way for this to work for us. I have purchased all the games.. over 200. I just purchased the X, so the 2 children will have the original and the S. Without the ability to add a 3rd console it's impossible for them to share games and not effect me.

    Please help!

    also with the idea of the new Xbox One X coming out... maybe one home on the X and one on the original

    This idea would leave the system exposed to abuse. I don't think it will be considered

    How about using your home Xbox to determine your external IP, then allow all Xboxes on that network to share licences.

    Could use a latency limit from the home Xbox to the others to stop people using VPN

    This is a great idea but if can't be done for now, atleast xbox allows us to have more than 3 chances a year. All we have to do is to contact xbox support and request for a reset.
