Ok, long story short. Coworker who's not a gamer is selling me a new 360 4gb he got free with a new windows phone contract. At $130 it was a good deal I couldn't pass up and seeing my 60gb Arcade 360 gives me the E74 error sometimes I would have to get a new 360 soon enough. I do have some questions on having a 2nd 360:


1:
Will my profile be accessible on both 360s or do I need to transfer it via USB to the 360 I'm playing? I have 2 PS3s and all I have to do is sign on the one I'm playing for my profile to appear, is the 360 similar or only through USB?

2:
4gb is not even enough to install most games. If I buy say a cheap 16gb jump drive and plug it into the 360 can I install and play the games from that?

3:
Are game saves locked to a system? Am I able to transfer say my Costume Quest XBLA gamesave, re-download the game on the new 360, and continue playing it? What about retail/disc games?

Thx, If I have any more questions after I get the system today or tomorrow I'll post them.
