    What is the best way to move games between GFWL accounts?


    I have two GFWL accounts and I wanna transfer my games from one account to another so I only have one.

    Is the smoothest way to do it to delete one of the accounts and reactivate my games on the other or is there a better way?

    I did not know that. What will happen to the games that use GFWL? Nothing will make my saved games become unusable, right?

    Microsoft has changed their minds now and they are not gonna remove GFWL yet. So I still have the same problem: what is the best way to move games from one of my GFWL accounts to the other??

    Have you logged into your account (now x-box.com) to see if there's a feature that allows you to transfer games between accounts? I checked mine but didn't see such a feature, but I've only got one account. Since you indicate you have more than one, you might have to call Microsoft about that. Outside of that, I have no other suggestions.

    Good luck.
