    Setting up the Xbox One for the first time

    When I first come to set up my Xbox One can I carry over my 360 Gamertag and my live membership, but without my old game score achievements. I won't be using a 360 anymore so I don't see the point in having my old achievements from that console carried over onto my Xbox One.
    I had thought about setting up a new account on the Xbox One as I will be using a new email address, but I would still like to keep my old gamertag and I also have another 4 months worth of Xbox Live on my account too.

    PS, I'm also not worried about my friends on the 360 as they hardly play on it and I know for sure they won't be replacing their 360 for the Xbox One.

    Any advice would be great.

    Your old achievements carry over, along with your live subscription, gamertag, and friend's list.

    Your live subscription and everything else I mentioned above remain active on both the One and the 360 at the same time.

    Thanks everyone! I've decided not to change my account. I'll just have to keep old achievements on my Xbox One. Shame we don't have a choice to what to bring over on the Xbox One.

    Why wouldn't you want to bring your achievements with you?

    It's a major selling point for me personally. I'm also looking forward to challenges and dynamic achievements.

    I just wanted to start from fresh with my achievements scores as it's a next gen console.
