Xbox Live Arcade on Elite

Now that Microsoft's upgraded Xbox 360 Elite is officially in stores, some owners are reporting that they cannot play Live Arcade games bought for earlier versions of the console. Users can in fact move their Live accounts to a new system, but any downloaded Arcade games will revert to their trial modes if no online authentication is available. The current Microsoft recommendation is to use a free data transfer cable, but the same problem takes effect regardless; this is apparently a scheme to prevent piracy. [via Ars Technica]
