A Simple Fact about Xbox that Blew My Mind


So the other day I got yelled at by my roommate because I saved over one of his old games on something I thought he was done playing.

Me: I thought you were done!

Roommate: Nope! Why didn’t you just make a new save file?

Me: It only lets you do one! This isn’t Mass Effect.

Roommate: You’re an idiot. Just sign in with a different profile and start a new game.

Me: What-what-whaaaaaat?

So some games, like Mass Effect or Dragon Age, allow you have multiple save accounts using one gamer profile, but others, like Ninja Gaiden or Saints Row let you create a new save account of simply sign in using another gamer profile. Not another gamerTAG, just another user account that you’ve made on the system. WHAT THE HELL HOW DID I NEVER KNOW THIS?

Is this common knowledge, and I truly am an idiot as my roommate says? I never once knew you could do this, and this would have saved me a lot of grief in and endless amount of games over the past few years. If you didn’t know this before, consider your mind as blown as mine was.
