So I'm going to download Red Dead Redemption, but I don't want my young cousin to play it. So is there any way to block other xbox files on your hardrive from playing? Thanks :woop:

Download it to a USB drive and play it from there, then remove the USB drive when he's using the xbox maybe?

This is the only way I can think of. I don't know of any way to actually manage who can play one certain game, that goes more on blocking ratings on games.

The xbox cannot tell the difference between one M rated game from another. So if you decide to use rating restrictions, it's going to be all or nothing unfortunately. You can either set restrictions so he can't play any M rated games, or tell your cousin not to play it and trust that he wont.

Or you can get a physical copy, and secure it when you're not playing. The USB drive isn't all that bad an idea either.

I believe the only way to block specific games is if both accounts are part of a family account and one game is designated a child account.

From Dashboard,
My xbox-System Settings-Memory-Hard drive-Games

Then you should be able to transfer it to a USB if you have one inserted in the xbox.

I would just do this. You're planning to buy the game, so rather than getting the game and a new USB drive, might as well just buy a disc and save a little money.
