Greetings Stikboy,

Yes, you can.

To Download your Xbox LIVE profile:
You can download your Xbox LIVE gamertag to any console. Here’s how:
    1. Press the Xbox Guide button on your controller (large X button in the center of your controller).
    2. Select Download Profile.

Note Not seeing Download Profile? Press X to sign out of your profile.

    1. Enter the Microsoft account associated with your Xbox LIVE gamertag. If you don’t know your Microsoft account or password, see Find your Microsoft account or password.

      Note “Microsoft account” is the new name for what used to be called “Windows Live ID.” It’s the email address and password you use to sign in to Microsoft services (including Xbox LIVE). Find out more.

    2. Now, enter your Microsoft account password.

      Note If your account is an Xbox LIVE child account, the parent’s Microsoft account information is required to download the profile.

    3. Select the storage device for your profile (for example, Hard Drive).

Your profile will begin downloading. Once your profile is downloaded, you can choose whether or not you want to require your Microsoft account password to sign into your profile.

Remember Password option

The Remember Password option is off by default, which means you’ll be prompted for your Microsoft account password when you sign into your Xbox LIVE profile.

    1. Leave the Remember Password unchecked (off), if you want to be prompted for your Microsoft account password when you sign into your profile on this console.

Note If you’re downloading your profile to your own console, you can select the Remember Password option so that you aren’t prompted for your Microsoft account password when you sign into your profile.

You can now sign in using your Xbox LIVE gamertag on this console.

Important If you downloaded your profile to another console and you chose the Remember Password option, you can remotely remove the password so that your profile can’t be accessed on the other console. To learn how to do this, see Password protect your Xbox LIVE profile.

Now you have to transfer the gamertag content, so you can play all your DLC and Arcades at the new console.

For that please follow theses steps:

Transfer content licenses

First, please remember that you can only transfer content licenses from one console to another once every four months.

1. On your console, sign in to Xbox LIVE using the gamertag that you used to purchase the content.

2. Go to the Settings, and then select Account.

3. Go to Your Billing Options, and then select License Transfer.

4. Follow the on-screen instructions to transfer the content licenses.

After the licenses are transferred, you need to download the content again to update the local licenses. This way the content can be used by other profiles on your console and when you’re not connected to Xbox LIVE.

For information about how to download previously purchased content, please see Buy and redownload content from Xbox LIVE.
