Microsoft has told MCV that a data transfer kit will not be included with the Xbox 360 S when it launches in the UK on July 16th.
Yesterday retailer GAME claimed that “the new Xbox will have a data migration kit so getting all that gaming goodness out of your old hard drive will be a breeze”.
However, a spokesperson for the platform holder told MCV:
“The article incorrectly reports that the Xbox 360 250GB console comes with the Data Migration Kit. In fact, the Data Migration Kit will be available as a separate retail product on 16th July (ERP £14.99), and not included with the console.”
Users will also be able to transfer any data from existing consoles via USB memory stick, providing their machine is updated with the latest firmware.
