    Had a decent go on a 360 at the weekend.
    So now I will moving the purchasing of my 360 forward a bit :D
    As I already have an Xbox Live account I want to transfer the account across when I get my 360. How do you do this? Is it to do with the Credit card your subscription is on?
    Also when I come to sell my old Xbox is there a wipe facility on it to get rid off game saves and any of my personal data? Are there any other considerations?

    Sorry if this has been answered but had a good look around before posting.

    Thanks

    The first bit is easy :)

    So easy, even I managed to do it! :D

    On 360 Live, go to your profile, and select the option that is something like 'recover Live account'
    You have to answer a couple of questions (I think it was address details IIRC), then it xfers your account across :)

    simple as a simple thing (which is just as well as far as I am concerned! LOL)


    Second bit - thta I can't help you with, sorry :(
    I'm keeping mine for the mo, to keep the kids happy until their fave games get supported on the 360...
