The PC and Xbox 360 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim have more in common than we originally thought. Apparently save files on the Xbox 360 can be transferred to the PC and vice versa with very little tinkering. You’ll need to have access to both versions of the game for this to work. It may not be worth it to spend full price on two copies of Skyrim right now, but when the inevitable sale hits, you can have the best of both worlds.

Transferring the save involves placing it on a Xbox 360 formatted flash drive, opening it in an application called Modio and renaming the file. The save files can be used across both platforms as long as the both games are on the same software update. You can also alter your character on the PC and move them over to the Xbox 360.

This is a great trick to have once the Skyrim modding community really takes off. If you own Skyrim on Xbox 360, you won’t have to worry about not being able to take your fully loaded character into a completely modded world on PC.
