Re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

So I went to one Target, all they had left was a single 4GB with Kinect. I have a Kinect, need more space than that, and have the games it came with. But I bought it anyway, thinking I'd be able to do something with storage. 125.xx after the discounts (they automatically rung up the 10% extra).
She called another couple stores, they didn't have any. I checked Target.com and it said another store about 10 miles away had them "in stock" (ironically, right next door to where I had dinner last night), and another store right near there had 1 left.
Went to the store, found 1 lone 500GB unit. Bought it - 85.xx after the discounts (they automatically rang up the 10% as well, and the cartwheel coupon worked again, which I was a little worried about.)
Returned the Kinect one to that store.
Driving home I realized that the store I went to, was the "1 left" store, not the 'In stock' store - so I was lucky they still had it. (And while return the 4GB one, the cashier said "Oh, I told someone we didn't have any more" so I'm glad i didn't call.)
Anyway - long story short - I got the 500Gb Forza bundle (a game I don't have, if the download code still works). And the disk drive on my current console still doesn't work. And bonus - this console is wifi, so I can pull in the thirty foot ethernet cable across my living room.

Now to work on the transfer.
Questions:
1 - I tried going to "Transfer Content -> Cloud". It shows Cloud as an option with 1.9 GB free, but won't let me select it. Does that mean there's too much content to transfer? Could be - sometimes I don't delete saves, and some games I create new every time. If so I can certainly go through and delete all but one save on all games.
2 - There are 2 active profiles on this console. Do I need to sign into each one and do them separately?
3 - i have a 4GB USB stick - can/should use that to transfer content? I theoretically could have both consoles hooked up at one time but would prefer not to have to do that. But if it makes it easier to get everything I certainly will.

edit: Or I could just make it easier. Gamestop near me has a transfer cable for 15$, I'll just try to borrow one from a neighbor or buy that one.

Do you have a Gold subscription? That's required for cloud storage. Maybe that's it.

I do have Gold, for at least another couple weeks.
I borrowed a transfer cable. Took about an hour an a half to transfer but I have a fully working console again.
Now to hunt down a second guitar since my backup one died a while back...

Nice. I need a new 360 too. My disc drive has to have a disc in at all times to work and now the controllers are constantly disconnecting.

From gog forums:
xbox.com has some DLCs for Xbox360 games that just turned free.

SSX: Classic Character Pack DLC
Dragon Age: Origins: Awakening DLC
Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam DLC

Noticed a couple other free DLCs in those games.

The 360 was discontinued more than 2 years ago, so you're unlikely to find a new one in stores.

Re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

There are some on Amazon that still have some Retail-new-in-the-box systems but they're asking what you can get a XB1 for. Lots of used offers and even that model they came out with that looks like a XB1...Xbox 360-E or something like that. Appears the used prices are in the $70-$90 range. I still have my Elite Model.

I’m kind of tempted just in case my current 360 ever RRODs.
