Transferring Old Xbox 360 Save Files To The New Console

No Comment 1137 Views


Currently, one feature makes Xbox One much better than the PS4 – it is the backwards compatibility for previous-generation games, which Microsoft officially announced.

Backwards compatibility means that more Xbox 360 games will be playable on the Xbox One in the future, which is a great feature for the longtime Xbox 360 gamers to upgrade. Though, this also means that moving from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One will involve one crucial step: backing up the old saved games in order to move them to the new console.

The good news for all the Xbox 360 owners who want to migrate to the next console, is that there is a thorough guide on how to perform the process.

The Xbox 360 saved games stored in the cloud will be moved to the Xbox One automatically, and you won't have to do more. In order to transfer over your saves, you just have to save them in the cloud from the Xbox 360, if you’re not doing that already. Also, you should make sure that you have an active Xbox Live profile for this to work.

As the game website states that Silver members won’t be able to use cloud storage, they won’t be able to move their saves from the cloud without the upgrade.

In case you have an access to the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program (either now in or in November), you can start transferring your saved games for the titles you want to play on Xbox One.

On Xbox 360, go to Settings, then System, then Storage, then Games and Apps, then Name of the Game and then Saved Game. In there, you can copy or move the data to the cloud. After that, move over to the Xbox One and let it find your saves. The console should inform you that it’s syncing data as soon as it’s found. Then, all you have to do is to repeat the procedure for each game you want to play on the new console.
