The Beta info isn't transferable so how would I keep my weapon skins, Cole skin, and Beta medal?

I thought about playing Gears 3 on my old console to create a game save and then transfering that save to the Gears 3 console. Will that work or is there another way?

your beta file should be transferable. can you show what the problem is?

you should be able to transfer the beta save onto a usb drive and move it to your new console. the only thing is that the beta is tied to the gamertag you used to play in the beta itself. i suggest recovering your gamertag onto your new console first, then transfer the beta files.

It is transferable. You can get a data transfer cable, which will run you about $20 new, but it's easiest. All you do is hook up your old HDD to the cable, then plug it in and transfer your data signed in as you. Either that, or a USB flash drive will also work. You will have to configure it though - going into your settings will take care of that, although I don't remember how to exactly.

No Data Transfer Cable has been launched yet from slim to slim, if you have an old style xbox then there are transfer cables available to purchase. If you have a slim aleady then you will need to "MOVE" not "COPY" your saved games and avatar/gamerpics unlockables to a USB drive.

You will also need to do a License Transfer awell, here is the link.

You don't need to do a license transfer to transfer the beta game save. It's like transferring your campaign game save in Gears 2, for example.

Use a USB stick (format it for Xbox 360 if not already done - does this in the dashboard when you plug it in), copy the player profile save (not the beta/title update) to the USB stick, then copy it to your knew console. No problem. No license transfer is needed as this is NOT a download it's simply a game save.
