So I've had an Xbox360 Arcade for going on four years now and I'm just now deciding to upgrade to a Slim very soon. I have a few concerns regarding the data on my external HDD, though.
Which method is most recommended to change over to the Slim once I get it?
-I've of course heard of the transfer kits. I honestly really don't get how they work, nor can I find for sure where to get one from (ones on Amazon I see have low ratings and there's several kinds of them).
-I was thinking of just putting all of my saves and such on the Cloud (not sure how much it can store anyway) and recover them on the new console, then re-download Arcade games and other things via the Marketplace.
-Or I've heard that I can just detach my external HDD and put it on my Slim. This sounds like the simplest and cheapest method, however I don't understand why there are transfer cables and such if people could just do this - why should I/should I not go for this?
So in general I'm looking for information and insight as to what the best method of transferring my saves/data over to my new console once I get it.
