Can someone tell me, on XBL i'm planning to purchase The Orange Box and was wondering once downloaded will i always have access to this game, for example, i've got an Elite now, and let's say i decide to sell it and buy an Arcade (yes i know why would i do that) would i still be able to retrieve the game from my account or will i have to pay for it again?

When you purchase something on Xbox live, you receive 2 licenses:

1 for that game/content, on your gamertag
1 for that game/content, on that console.

This means, you can play/download that game/content on any console you are signed into. And anyone can play that game/content on your xbox.

Once per year, you can run the Xbox License Migration tool to transfer all the console licenses to a new console.

So, basically. Nope, you won't have to pay again :P

Edit: Also, you can download anything from xbox live again, for free, on any console you are signed into, forever. (excluding movie rentals, obviously), so long as the content is still available on xbox live: Downloading again, though, will only download the original licenses: ie; you can't log in on another xbox, download something, and allow people to play that content on the other xbox when you're not signed in.

So if you have two users on the xbox, the user who downloaded the content only has access to it?

Is there any point paying for the download when you can pick it up from choices uk for 9.99 (stock on order, or cdwow 13.99 in stock. Anyone can play it and you have the option to sell or trade and you won't need to use any harddrive space.

Nope anyone signed onto the original xbox can access the downloaded content.
if the gamertag that downloaded the content signs onto another console anyone on the other console can access that stuff AS LONG as the original gamertag is signed in.

on the original console anyone can access it all of the time.

But as has been said you would be better off just buying the disc version, its cheaper and has resale value :)

Gold/Silver membership doesn't change the game you download (Gold means you can download some a week before silver, though) - It's just the multiplayer features of the game will only work as long as you're a gold member.

There isnt a single on-demand game on there that you cant get for a lot cheaper online, its a rip off.
