Downloaded Content After Console Replacement

doobiwan found quite a helpful piece of information.

As you are all aware the Xbox 360 has possibly the worst survival rate of all the consoles. While the 3 year RROD warranty helps to ease this pain with an instant swap out we are still left with a bit of an issue.

Once you have your system swapped out (and have kept your old HDD) you can’t play your arcade games unless being currently signed into Live. Which means if your Internet goes down you can’t play online or your arcade games.

Which is more than a little annoying. Well there is a way to fix this problem.

All you actually need to do is re-download the games. Now I haven’t tried it myself but I am going to guess that it won’t actually re-download them but will rather check that you have them and then activate them again.

So there you go.. simple as that… | System Use – Downloaded Content After Console Repair/Refurbishment
