Xbox One backwards compatibility is great, except for one thing...


My Xbox 360 is slow as shit!

So lately I've been using Xbox Live's cloud storage to let my kids play backwards compatible games like Lego Star Wars on the Xbox One downstairs, and then send them upstairs to the 360 to continue playing when I want to watch or play something in the living room. It works great and the saved game syncing is a snap, but booting up the 360 takes upwards of a minute (to load the UI), which is hard for an impatient 4-year-old to sit through. (See above.)

Any advice for speeding up the boot time, while also keeping it online? Thanks in advance!
