Instaalling games on my laptop

  bjantbear 17:51 09 Apr 2009

I have just got a laptop and would like to install my games onto that as well as my main computer so that my wife can play them when I am doing something else.

Am I able to do this, please or do I have to buy them again?

Depends on the game, games that play online such as Halo need another disk but a few other games are fine.

If you could list the games, that would help.

Yeah, depends on the game. Offline shouldn't be a problem, and with some games (eg original Unreal Tournament) you can use the one disc for multiple installs and battle each other online (you don't need to keep the disc in the drive in order to play).
