View Full Version : Multi Gamertag Change


Parasite 0004

If this is in the wrong place, I apologize.

Ok, I have two Xbox Live accounts. My main one that I'm normally on is Parasite 0004, my other one is PoisonedPanda.
I'm wondering if there's any way to make Parasite 0004's name PoisonedPanda, by like changing PoisonedPanda's gamertag first, then making Parasite's name PoisonedPanda?
Of course I'd have to pay 1600MP but does anybody know if that will work?
Or any other FACTS that can do it.

Help would greatly be appreciated.

Of course that will work. I think you need 800 points on each account to change GT

I doubt Microsoft frees up the name instantly after you change it. However, you might be able to find out somewhere how long before they release the name back into the pool of usable names. I know companies like Google and Yahoo wait about 6 months with e-mail addresses.

You can do it, BUT you'd need 2400. As you would have to change One account to something u don't need and then change other to the one you want and change the g/t that u didn't need to the one you want...

Parasite 0004 ---> 'what ever'
PoisonedPanda ---> Parasite 0004
'what ever' ---> PoisonedPanada
as you can't have the tag in use...
I am not responible for any loses if this doesn't work as I am not 100% sure... small print FTW... LOL

Don't think this is necessary. Sound's like OP doesn't care if his 2nd tag is called Parasite 0004 so 1600gs ($20 BTW) is correct.

Only thing I can confirm is that it's possible to switch (changed my tag then created a new account with my old tag). I can not confirm if there is a waiting period.

Maybe you should read it GhOsT :P
And yea it'd be only 20 bucks for the one account to change the GT and then points on te other would cost another/ too bad you cant transfer points

It works, a few months ago I changed my tag to avoid an e-stalker who had gotten hold of it. I was able to instantly use the old gamertag name when creating a new tag. (Just to tie up the old name so they couldn't use it)
