Re: play regular Xbox games on Xbox 360 play ?

The Xbox 360 is highly believed to be backward compatible but ONLY with the original Xbox's top-selling games. Games like Halo 1 and 2, Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2, Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive and a handful of others are believed to be on the list for backward compatible treatment. IGN.com journalists believe that Microsoft will take the backward compatiblity issue one step at a time, considering the XB360 is an entirely different system from the original. Using the XB360 hard drive, there will be updates of some sort sent via Xbox Live that will enable gamers to play SOME of their favorite older titles (granted they have the games in their possession). Over time, the list may grow based on gamer feedback and, someday, the XB360 may very well include in its playable titles every game from Xbox 1's library. We'll know for sure how Microsoft handles backward compatibility this fall when the system is (hopefully) launched.

Xbox360 wont play origanal xbox games


Some XBox games have both a 360 and original XBox version, so you can't play them on the 360. Other games simply aren't compatible. Your game may fall into one of those two groups.

My xbox 360 wont play a xbox game even though it is on a compatible list. It is saying that the hard drive may be disconnected. It is playing 360 games fine. Any advise would be great


To play regular Xbox games on the 360, you MUST have an internet connection when you start up the game, to download the compatibility patch from XBL. Once you have the patch you won't need the internet to play the game from then on.

Okay, the Xbox 360 isn't reverse compatable, meaning you can't play regular xbox 360 games on it. The only version that is reverse compatable is the Xbox 360 Elite. SOrry :(

My xbox will not play regular movies or games. it


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Once the heat stops the games start.

You may have to have a broadband internet connection to download the update or the game itself is not compatible. Microsoft did not make it so all Xbox games are compatible with the Xbox 360. Try looking up the games and see if they are playable on the 360.
