So I kind of agree with spider Ny's idea. They should give you like a 10% bonus towards your xbox 720 gamerscore. Even though they probably will never do that..

The reason everyone wants their score to carry over is because they worked so hard at obtaining it. But to be honest its not that bad to start at 0 again. I just made a new account after taking a break from gaming for a couple of years. It sucks though to go from 66000 to 755

Edit: Oh and by the way, is there an article or something stating that gamerscore will carry over to the next system?

Edit 2: Nevermind, found the article. But it's just a rumor.
Umm...what is "unfair" about it? ACHIEVEMENTS AREN'T REAL LIFE.

How would it not be fair? That is like saying that because someone bought a 360 last week we should all have to reset our scores. It wouldn't be fair to those who have worked hard to have it reset, because Joe Blow decided next generation to buy an Xbox instead of a Nintendo Pi R2.

No, they won't. They will give you 100%

You think? What would be the point in earning it, if you didn't get to keep it.

You may not think so. But taking 2 years off may make you care less for your previous score. I can bet dollars to pesos that 99.9% of people here would flip their lids if they got reset for no reason other than making new user "Mike", from PSN more comfortable in earning score.

The score is tied to your GAMERTAG (not the console). This isn't rumour, it is FACT. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to play on 3 platforms and earn gamerscore on ONE gamertag. So unless they get rid of Gamerscore altogether, it will carry over or have serious fallout. MS isn't that stupid.

haha...funny thing is, I was referencing mainly the original XBox.

Yet most of these kiddies were in diapers when the first XBox came out.

They should carry over every aspect of xbox live from this console to the next. I have a name idea. The Xbox Infinity, Infinity because they just keep on updating the hardware every 5 years or so.

Gamerscore will totally carry over. It wouldn't make any sense for it not to. Espesially if Microsoft does a better job with backwards compatibility for the xbox 360 games than it did for the xbox originals.

The main reason for the lack of backwards compatability between the 360 and original box was because it all had to be done via an emulator because the GPU was made by an entirely different company.

So we are clear, I have like 48,000 gamer score, so I would have a bonus 4,800 on the next Xbox.
What do you think?
Any other ideas?
Would you not move to next gen to keep getting more points for this gen if no points moved over?
Has Microsoft said anything about this?
Don't mean to be a prick but that's really stupid.

I'll suggest (like almost everyone) that the gamerscore will be carried over. I think that's what everybody likes too.

But some people who are saying there needs to be a bonus GS for new console; totally unnecessary imo....

In my day we didn't have colour and hi-res graphics was being able to switch from 40 ASCII characters per column to 80 ASCII characters per column.

As for joysticks... they were only compatible with the magazine collection you hid from your parents...

It probably will end up carrying over. It definitely wouldn't please the dedicated members like Stallion83 who spend so much time getting that high of gamerscore just to have it taken away like that.

I think that idea is just stupid, I'm thinking maybe they'll make it so that you can play xbox360 games on whatever the new console is going to be named similar to being able to play the original playstation games such as Spyro on a PS2 and keep the gamertag system.

Huh? Remove HDD...place HDD in new Xbox.

Or if you mean the 360 Elite, then simply transfer from HDD to external harddrive, and then connect that to new XBox.

I think people should just stop posting about the new xbox... not aiming this at you but in general. No one knows anything about the next console, it won't be called a '720', and Microsoft wouldn't give you any gamerscore if they decided to start afresh.

Just play your xbox and stop worrying about whats coming out next, because whatever it is, you wont see it for a long time. And I can imagine as soon as the new console comes out the board will be bombed with posts asking what you think will be on the next console. What's the point? Wait for it to be announced.

I'm sure they will carry over and I'm sure it will have backwards compatibility.

It still boggles my mind that people are optimistic or even completely convinced that the next Xbox will be fully backwards compatible.

I hope it does, which is to say if it does i'm 100% getting the next system. However if it doesn't then I will consider my options on which next gen system I like the look of at launch.

this thread might get locked seeing as how many times the subjects come up. but just thought i'd throw in my 2 cents on your backwards compatibility statement. leaving for sony would be a little ridiculous, since sony ALREADY doesn't support backwards compatibility unless you get an older ps3 model. if they dropped it with newer ps3s, there's 0% chance they're bringing it back for the next gen.
