Upgrading to new Xbox 360, quick question.

From what I understand, I can transfer my game saves and profiles to the new Xbox simply by using a USB thumb drive, right?

Also, I've bought a few games via Xbox Live Games on Demand. Can I re-download those to the new console once I switch?

I hate you and you hate me.

    You can do a license transfer to your new xbox if that's what you'll be using permanently. Otherwise, you can download and play those games you bought *when signed onto your xbox live account* you bought them with.

    Transferring the licenses to the new xbox opens it up for all accounts on that xbox. You can do it once per year, last I knew.

    If you only ever use one XBL account, the license transfer is largely unnecessary. But if you buy all the games and then like your brother/partner/mom had her own gamertag... it'd be necessary. Hope that explained it.

    They have licence transfer? Back when I had to first 'licence transfer', the customer service girl just granted me a load of MS Points to re-buy my games. It was great.
