    i am giving thought to possibly buying this:

    Xbox One 1TB Limited Edition Forza Motorsport 6 Bundle Games Consoles | Zavvi.com

    as it is double the storage, "limited edition" and comes with forza 6, which i will be buying anyway if i upgrade to a new xbox or not.

    question is, how easy, if at all, is it to move all of my games from my current xbox one over to a new console? or will i have to install them all again as new games? how does that work for digitally downloaded games, will i lose them if i move to a new console?

    thanks

    Use an Ext USB HDD and move everything to that and then plug that into the new one.
    If you want to double your storage you can do that with buying the above, you could probably get a 2TB Drive for about £60 and then get Forza 6 for about £40.

    With Ext HDD its very easy to upgrade storage or use it to transfer all games.

    currently i am not using an external hard drive - i just wondered if there was a way to transfer game data over from one xbox one to another, without the use of an EHDD.

    however, it appears the use of an EHDD is going to be the simplest way, so will probably just buy one of them and use that instead.

    thanks

    It is quick and easy to move games between consoles using a USB3.0 external HDD. Without an external HDD you can re-install disc games to any XB1 console directly from the disc. As for digital games, these are not lost, you will always own them and they appear in My Games & Apps under the Ready to Install section off to the right.
