  1. Migrating games from Xbox One to Series S


    Big question.

    I have an older disk based Xbox One, with some disk based games, now If I were to shift all of the game data to an external USB (installed on there) and then purchase the upcoming Series S, would it allow me to run those games, or would I be forced to buy
    the more expensive Series X console to play them?

    :)

    Hi,

    If you have lots of disk games the Series S may not be for you. Disk based games will still require the disk to be read to prove ownership. For that you'll need the Series X.

    Xbox 360

    Xbox One

    Xbox One S

    Xbox One X

    Then soon Xbox Series X and possibly Xbox Series S

    will the one x be unlocked on games with fps caps when the new consoles arrive?

    Hi,

    I'm not sure where you got the 'every game will be 120 fps on Series S' from. The Series S will be capable of 120 fps, but that may not be possible on every game.

    As for Xbox One games at higher frame rates, that's possible, but it will only be on certain games. Plus, such features have to be patched in either by the developer or via the BC team. Xbox One games won't automatically run at higher frame rates on Series
    X or S.

    This is how Xbox Series S backwards compatibility really works

    Please help

    I have spoke to Rockstar Games regarding this a few times, as i migrated from 360 to One S. They explained to me that they no longer have access to that part of the account system that migrates users from one platform to another.

    Hi,

    Your drive will work the same on Series X as it does on Xbox One and you won't need to format it.

    However, Series X games or Xbox One games with Series X enhancements will not run from that drive and will either need to be installed internally or to an external SSD designed for Series X/S.

    Your hard drive will be too slow for Series X games. They can be stored there, but not run from there.
