    for game saves yes, for arcade games, no they are saved to your xbox live account, and are you selling your 360 locally or on ebay or what?

    you won't be able to play the Arcade games without being signed into live.

    just a heads up, they're tied to the original console it was downloaded on, not the hard drive.

    they arent saved to a console, the downloads are based on points, and whatever you downloaded from your live account (where the points are stored) you can easily download again if you delete them, i learned from having to swap consoles at gamestop

    mike, the xbox live games you download are console tied, that's why when u get a replacement console, u can't play the Arcade games you downloaded previously Without being logged into Live. Even if u re-download them, you can still only access them when logged into Live.

    the information that you downloaded them is stored w/ your gamertag and all that, and that totally isn't what i was refering to, just the fact the games aren't playable w/o being signed into live.

    ask M$ they're working on this issue...and it's been published in OXM and EGM.
