    Transfering Xbox One hard copy games to Xbox series S (smart delivery)


    Recently purchased a series s console and still own old unit xb1, had purchased discs for xb1 (cyberpunk 2077 and watch dogs legion) and have tried to install on new unit by network transfer. I realise that cyberpunk is STILL awaiting next gen upgrade and Watch Dogs has been upgraded already but can not run game on series s at all.

    :)

    Xbox 1 to Xbox series x/s

    Yes. Xbox One games will be backwards compatible with the Series S/X. There are also games like Valhalla and Cold War that support Smart Delivery. With Smart Delivery, you can buy the games now on the One and you'll be able to download the Series S/X version
    for free.

    Smart Delivery

    Hello,

    Yes, Xbox one games that support Smart Delivery will just have to be purchased once. If you purchase the Xbox one version of a game, you’ll receive the Series X|S version (and vice versa) when you upgrade.

    Smart Delivery for Xbox Series X|S FAQ

    https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/06/15/what-is-smart-delivery-xbox-series-x/

    Another good page explaining Smart Delivery, along with the current list of games that support it:

    https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/xbox-smart-delivery-explained

    Smart Delivery applies to both digital games and physical disks and your game progress will carry over, as normal, when you upgrade your console.

    You also don’t need to do anything in terms of choosing a version to download, the system will automatically take care of that for you.

    I hope this information helps, happy gaming! :)

    Transfering Xbox One hard copy games to Xbox series S (smart delivery)

    You would have to purchase the games digitally in order to be able to play them on the Series S. Otherwise, the disc has to be in the drive in order to play the games and since the Series S doesn't have a disc drive, that wouldn't be possible.

    Xbox Series X compatability

    Microsoft introduces "Smart Delivery" with the Xbox Series X, which means, that if you own an existing game (like Minecraft in your example, or Gears 5) or a new game comes out for Xbox One and Xbox Series X with improved graphics on Series X, you won't
    have to buy the game twice.

    With Smart Delivery you will play the "enhanced" version on Series X, and the "normal" version on Xbox One.

    For more info about Smart Delivery and other terms used with the Series X check this page: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/03/16/xbox-series-x-glossary/

    Reading the quote below, gives me the impression I can use the same login across both XB1 and X/S:

    source

    Xbox Series X: Buy A Game Once and Play the Best Version Across Generations with Smart Delivery - Xbox Wire

    emphases (italic, underline) mine:

    • When Halo Infinite launches alongside Xbox Series X and Xbox One this holiday, you only have to buy the game once and you’ll get the best version for whichever console you own, or both.
      If you pick up Xbox Series X for your living room, Smart Delivery will recognize that and deliver you the Optimized version there. If you decide to move your existing Xbox One to a bedroom or the office, Smart Delivery
      will recognize that too and deliver that version when you’re playing on Xbox One
      .
