An update for Xbox Skip Ahead Alpha Insiders allows players to use their old Gamerpic from the Xbox 360 days on new consoles – the Xbox One and the Xbox Series X/S. Engineering lead at Xbox Eden Marie took to Twitter to report this to fans, and you can check out the Tweet for more information on the matter.

The option to revert back to an Xbox 360 gamerpic will only be available to those who have a valid Xbox 360 account. Any changes made to the Gamerpic on Xbox 360 will be reflected automatically on the newer consoles. This isn’t much of a functional update, but longtime fans of Microsoft’s consoles will certainly find a lot to love here.

Xbox has been doing a great job with its system software, with both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S using the same framework. Sony on the other hand, has crafted a completely new look for the PS5, which, while it has its advantages, has caused a fair bit of frustration for fans as well- though to be fair, Sony does seem to be taking steps to improve usability.
