    The replaceable hard drive is overrated because your game licenses stay on the console-not the hard drive.Plus the one accepts external storage.So you could use your own 1.5 terabyte hard drive.

    Games on broken 360

    So one of my 360s bit the dust.I have 271 games on and Im not sure what to do.The last time I sent an xbox for repair they told me to keep my hard drive.When the console was returned to me all my licenses had been deleted.I couldnt download them for 3 months...so
    now I want to play the games from my broken xbox on my good one.If I pull the hard drive out and swap with my good one what will happen to my licenses?Will they stay on the console,stay with the hard drive or will they get deleted?

    Will games on hard drive stay with the console

    Hi there,

    do you mean you are going to buy a new xbox one console with the FIFA 14 game available in the package? Or are you buying a second hand xbox one console that has the FIFA 14 game already installed and downloaded?

    If it is the first then you can download the game via the redeemable code that supplied with the console and will be available for your account on any xbox one console to download

    If it is the second then the game may be on the console, but it isn't yours since it is bound to the account that bought the game. So my guess would be No, you shouldn't have access to that game

    In short a downloaded game is always bound to the account that originally purchased the game, it isn't bound to the console.

    Games can be shared across consoles, but the games owner will have to have that xbox one console set as home console. See this link for some Home console information:

    support.xbox.com/.../my-home-xbox
    As far as I know only one console can be set at Home console for an account.
