Have you ever wished that you could just connect two consoles to the same network and transfer games? Well, now you can! At 6 PM PDT today, Microsoft will enable Alpha Xbox Insiders to transfer their games and apps to another console using their network. This will makes it easy to upgrade to the Xbox One X when the time comes.

Network transfer has been a much-requested feature for a while now especially since the Xbox One S came out. Now that the Xbox One X is almost here it seems that Microsoft wants those who upgrade to be able to do so in the most painless way. Hopefully the update will reach out to the rest of us soon because I want to get a separate Xbox One S but don’t want to transfer my games to the internal hard drive by using my small external hard drive a few at a time.
