Word is that backward compatibility to games of the old console is excellent, but this applies mostly to XBOX hits. Games like Halo 1 & 2, Knight of the Old Republic 1,2 , Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, and a handful of others are in that list. Updates to the rest of the games will gradually come out, and will be distributed through XBOX Live, so that whoever owns a copy of the game could play it in the new console. We hope that eventually all the games will be patched to the 360, but you got to wait and see.

The old can't be played on the new 360?


The Xbox 360 is backwards compatible with certain games that were released for the original Xbox. Currently there are more than 200 BC titles with more being added all the time. Big name titles such as Halo, Halo 2, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Ninja Gaiden Black are just some of the Xbox games you can play on Xbox 360

There is a requirement for backwards compatibility and that is you have to have a hard drive for your Xbox 360. If you bought a Core system you can't play original Xbox games on your system until you buy a hard drive

Hello, I got a new XBox just a while ago because my old one died out. I took out the hard drive of the old XBox and put it into the new one so I can play all the games I've downloaded. But here's the...


i may be wrong on this but i think if you move one hard drive from one xbox to another you'll have to reformat the drive which will erase all your games and save data on it.

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error


Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.
