Xbox 360 Elite Free Transfer Kit Details

So you're buying an Xbox 360 Elite this coming Sunday. Loot Ninja is sure you've already heard the Elite doesn't come with a transfer kit to move all of your data from your old 360 hard drive to the new 120GB hard drive on the Elite.

Luckily, Microsoft is providing FREE transfer kits to those who are upgrading. Details were released today on, with a linked PDF that must be filled out and mailed to Microsoft. Upon receiving the letter, Microsoft will mail you a transfer kit. Expect this process to take 4-6 weeks. In the meantime, you're stuck using your current 20GB hard drive, which means you can't go selling your old 360 just yet.

Am I the only one who thinks they handled this whole transfer thing a$$-backwards?

I think they should have 1) included the transfer cable with the Elite for the first few months, and 2) updated the licensing for that you don't have to be logged into play arcade games on the new console.

You'd think they could include the cable right off the bat; on the other hand, it's still free. My actual gripe though is forcing people who transfered their titles between HDDs to be logged into Xbox Live in order to play their downloaded titles. It seems a bit over the top. We should be able to transfer the licenses for games and content that we purchased off the network.

On another note, I'm wondering why the manual says to only hook up the cable to the rear USB port, but shows a picture of the cable hooked up to the front. Anyone else perplexed by that?
