Xbox 360 Content License Transferring

At long last, Microsoft has finally lightened up on their digital rights management for the Xbox 360 and now allows users to transfer their content licenses between consoles. It's a two-step process, the first done via a computer, and the second via the new Xbox 360 console itself.

The catch: Each user can only transfer their content licenses once every 12 months.

Full details, including an instructional video, can be found here, and an FAQ can be found here.

If you've gone through Xbox Support for a service order, they will transfer your licenses for you, so user license transferring will only be needed should you go and purchase a new Xbox 360 console yourself.
