After Bills suggestion on a PS3 or 360 as a nice ROKU Netflix box replacement and picking one up for my room (ps3) all the sudden I use it more when its in my room then in the living room (ok ok, im the odd man out on this i KNOW IT) I decided to get a 360 for my room also... I have modded one in my room but the JET engine fans are to much to deal with.. And BUY.COM had the new slim with the 250 HD on EBAY for $200 new.. so i bit the bullet and grabbed one (winter is comming up north, time to be inside alot)

Question.. I have a few games I purchased on my original 360 (living room one) I have LIVE so i have to login. When I get my new 360, use my login, can i redownload the games to it? Can I play them as long as Im logged in as me?

Im worrid a bit as i have a few i like on the original 360.. and I guess if Im limited to where I can save them I would put them all on one 360.. but if as long as Im logged in I can have them on any 360.. then it wouldnt matter. Anybody know?

You should be able to locate the old games in the Games section and download the paid version. It will automatically know you already paid for it and basically pop up a confirmation message asking if you'd like to re-download again.

I'd have to check it, but I'm pretty sure you can go the Xbox.com site too and queue up the download from there as well for your other system. Here's the Xbox.com page for Toy Soldiers, but you should still be able to get at it from the 360: http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Toy-Soldiers/66acd000-77fe-100...

thanks.. I geuss i would have

thanks.. I geuss i would have found out.. but i was just wondering.. I actually have 4 360's but only one with LIVE and hooked up.. I used to fix the RROD ones when there was a small amount of profit to be made.. not so much for the money, but there is a satisfaction of fixing something (and the 360 RROD was pretty easy on most machine).. so in the end I ended up with a few extras. I modded a couple (Jtagged) so i can load all my games on HD and play them without loadtimes.. but those old ones are noisy, always my biggest compalint. me and friend have been debating the 360 Vs PS3 for netflix. I like my PS3.. but Im wondering if that becuase there was an Update between when I used it last and my new PS3. Now i can compare.

i did notice with all this Netflix stuff going on my PS3 has required me to login befero Netflix.. now this was alwasy required (but was automatic).. but the last few times I have went to netflix.. it takes me to the PS3 login, you hit it and I get an error, but when I go to Netflix it workss then.. strange.. but I did see PS3 has had downtime 3X in the last week... maybe somthing strange.. or just all this netflix swap crap to 2 services.

once again thanks for the info, good to know I can play Army men on both machiens.

Correct, as long as you are

Correct, as long as you are logged in you can redownload any games or items you've already purchased. I have three Xbox's in the house and occasionally want to play a XBLA game outside of my primary system, and that's how I do it on the other two.
