    Transferring games


    A while ago I bought an xbox one as spares and repairs with tons of games on it, the disc drive didn't work but it didn't matter as the games I wanted were pre installed or ready to be installed.

    Then the WiFi card packed up, so fearing that I wouldn't be able to just put a new card in it, I bought another xbox listed as spares and repairs due to a power block fault

    It works fine and cost less than the other one (Gutted to be fair)

    Is there any way I can get the games from the old one, transferred to the other one since it wasn't me that purchased them?

    :)

    transferring game

    It wouldn't work. The licenses would be tied to your gamertag so it would only work if your gamertag was signed into Live on that console, and since you can't connect to Live, it wouldn't work.

    You would have to be able to sign into the account that purchased them in order to transfer them. Otherwise, you'd have to purchase them on your account.

    So I wouldn't be able to just plug the old hard drive into the new xbox or switch them over using that "Home Xbox" mode?

    You'd still have to be able to sign into the account that purchased them to make the new console the Home console and share the games.

    Problem with transfer

    The license transfer only transfers game licenses between console. There is now way to transfer games between accounts.

    Live Account transfer???dodgey

    The license transfer only transfers content lisenses. It does not transfer game saves. You would have to use a data transfer cable as suggested or a usb drive to transfer the saves.

    Broken hard drive! I have a few questions about transferring data.

    If you know for certain it is corrupted, avoid doing a transfer. You could transfer content but the odds are good that the content will be corrupted in the new HD. Transfer cable transfers game saves, profiles, achievements, game licenses etc.

    problem with the Xbox 360

    A license transfer will transfer the licenses for all of your games.

    Info

    Yes. Only the games will be transferred.
    Only the games will be transferred?. So my Profile will stay just on my Xbox One after I transfer the games?. Thank you so much.
