With the arrival of the next-gen consoles, a lot of emphases have been laid on backward compatibility. While both Sony and Microsoft have been actively working on ensuring almost complete backward compatibility in next-gen consoles, Microsoft is taking it a step further by making it more accessible.

Microsoft recently announced that users will be able to transfer Xbox 360 saves to Xbox Series X and S. And to make things easier for Xbox 360 owners, Microsoft is offering free cloud saves to them. Earlier, users needed a subscription to Xbox Live Gold to get access to cloud saves. To move your saves to the cloud, follow the given steps.

  • Sign in to Xbox.
  • Go to Settings, then select System and Storage.
  • Select the appropriate storage device which has the saved games.
  • Select the game which you want to move and click on Move.
  • Select Cloud Saved Games

This should copy the specific game’s saves to the cloud, and you will be able to access it on your new console. Older games on the new console will run at higher frames per second, and alongside that, Auto HDR will also be enabled for all games by default to improve the overall visuals.
