Xbox One will carry over Gamerscore and Gamertag

Microsoft have confirmed that gamers will be able to carry across their Gamerscore and Gamertag to the Xbox One.

IGN report that Xbox UK marketing director Harvey Eagle confirmed the news at a Xbox Reveal event held in London.


“Your hard-earned Gamerscore will port over, so yes you’ll take that with you. You’ll also take your Gamertag, your identity with you. Whilst we’re making a much bigger bet on natural identity with the camera, Avatars will also feature as well. All of the gaming identity that you have on Xbox 360 will be there on Xbox One as well.”


As we previously reported, Xbox Live Arcade games are not backwards compatible with the new console, so they will not carry over.
