I wanted to get an Xbox One eventually but a major thing holding me back is this. I have purchased alot of Xbox Live Arcade games on the 360. When you transfer your gamertag to Xbox One, will it let you download all the games you had on your account as well? If not, i will be getting a PS4.

No game on the 360 will work on the XB1, including arcade games. Only "fix" they've announced is streaming 360 games a la Gaikai in the future, which isn't really a fix.

The PS4 doesn't let you do this either. Just a heads up.

Yeah but i don't own a PS3 so i have no arcade games or gametag to transfer so it's not an issue. The Xbox One won't let me transfer my games i paid for so why get it? Ill hang on to the Xbox 360 and get a PS4 and start fresh.

It's for the best..

And you'd probably be best doing what I'm going to do. Buy a new 360 around march time (When everyone and their dogs has an Xbone), Download all of you arcade titles to it and then do the licence transfer.

Then put it in the box, get it out when needed.

If not, then in around four years time you'll not be able to play any arcade titles on your 360 as Microsoft will have dropped the service to the old console like a bad smell.

That won't matter too much though as you'll have a new 360 loaded with your stuff.


Sucks, doesn't it! But this is the wonderful world of digital we were all promised...

Unlike the Xbox -- Xbox 360 service, I believe the Xbox 360 and Xbox One share a service.. buy gold on Xbox 360, it applies to the Xbox One that kind of thing.

You can run your 360 through the One. Or just play on your 360. No biggie.
