I'm gonna assume no.. I'm not 100% sure.. But I doubt Microsoft would allow this.. If this was possible I could see people taking advantage of it.

Cheers, hopefully you get a better answer with a guaranteed answer. Everything I said is merely speculation.

Look into doing a license transfer of those games, from what I know you can basically "give" your old arcade games to your new profile or call MS and tell them whats up and they may do something for you.

Recover your gamertag onto your current console.
Do a license transfer for that gamertag and console.
Remove old gamertag (or keep it, doesn't matter.)

Doing a license transfer allows other gamertags and profiles to play the downloadable content even if the gamertag that bought it isn't signed in.

Well yes, that is the point of the license transfer tool. Transferring the licenses from one console to another. Anything you have bought with the profile will always work if you're signed into LIVE, but if you want to play it offline, do the license transfer.

Note; You can do the license transfer only once every 12 months.
