    I just got this game for Xbox 360. Every time I try to start a career it says I need to pick a lead profile. Do I need to be signed in to Xbox live in order to play these games? That doesn’t seem to make much sense.

  • Josh says:

    You need to sign in with a lead account so that the game knows which account to save your progress to. You don’t need live to have an account.

    • Mark says:

      Okay, I will try. But where do I find the NHL14 profile management screen? I am signed in with an xbox profile, but that doesn’t seem to do anything. Forgive me, I am not a gamer. NHL 95 was so much easier to play. Thanks.
