How to Bulk move your games to Xbox One X (Scorpio)

Here’s How:

So if you have invested in the new Microsoft Xbox One X (or Scorpio edition) you will need to get all them games across to your new Xbox as quick as possible so in this article I tell you how.

If you are following this and want to watch the video instead head over to my youtube channel HERE where there is a complete video on how to transfer your Xbox One games to your Xbox One X.

With this recently added ability to transfer Games and Apps between drives in bulk, Microsoft has made the process easier for the big transitions. This is especially helpful for those upgrading to the Xbox One X this Autumn, allowing large games (and their 4K updates) to be transferred with ease.

  1. Open the Settings app on Xbox One.
  2. Navigate to the System tab.
  3. Select Storage.
  4. Scroll over to the right and select the drive you are moving the content from.
  5. Press A to select.
  6. Select Transfer.
  7. Select the items you plan to transfer. If moving all items, choose Select all.
  8. Choose Copy to copy all items between drives. To completely move the items, select Move. A pop-up message will appear asking for confirmation.
  9. Confirm your choice to initiate the transfer.

If you have followed correctly your move over to a new Xbox One X console and games will be ready to go! Make sure to keep in mind that all game installations are tied to a physical disc or account license, so ensure either disc or correct log in is present before running your transferred games.

Xbox One X – Review and Comparison

With the Xbox One X (Scorpio) being due next month I thought I would have a look at the spec and see what others are saying about Microsoft’s new upgraded XBOX is

So we now know it is an updated version of the Xbox One console, designed to deliver 4K, HDR video, high-framerate gameplay, and other advanced features.

  • 6 TFLOPS, 326GB/s, 12GB GDDR5
  • Support for Dolby Atmos
  • 8-core, 2.3GHz processor

Technical jargon aside, this difference in graphics power will make a difference when it comes to gaming at 4K. Microsoft is aiming for full, native 4K at 60fps. Some games run at 30fps in 4K, while others manage full 60fps performance at full, native 4K. The rest is a combination of games that only run at 30fps/4K, or render at sub-4K and use clever upscaling techniques to appear 4K.

All Xbox One games will run better on One X, whether or not they’ve been specifically updated to do so. You’ll be able to play One X games at Full HD, too, with the choice as to whether you want to downscale from Ultra HD resolution for ultra-sharp graphics, or run games at 1080p for better performance.

Side by side comparisons to a bog standard Xbox One are:

Category Xbox One X Xbox One S
Processor Eight core CPU at 2.3GHz Eight core custom AMD CPU at 1.75GHz
Storage 1TB (standard) 500GB, 1TB or 2TB launch edition
Memory 12GB of GDDR5 RAM at 6.8GHz with 326 GB/s bandwidth 8GB DDR3 RAM
Graphics Six teraflop GPU at 1,172 MHz, 40 compute units Custom Radeon GPU with 1.23 teraflop
Ports HDMI-in; HDMI-out; one front-facing USB 3.0 ; two rear-facing USB 3.0; IR receiver/blaster; SPDIF digital audio; Ethernet HDMI-in; HDMI-out; one front-facing USB 3.0 ; two rear-facing USB 3.0; IR receiver/blaster; SPDIF digital audio; Ethernet
Optical drive 4K UHD Blu Ray 4K UHD Blu Ray

CraftyDoctor anticipates Microsoft has included support for a VR headset which is yet to be seen or possibly allowing the third party headsets that are currently being labelled as Mixed Reality, either way, I am sure that Microsoft has a VR plan for the Scorpio XBOX One X it is certainly powerful enough.
