How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb


I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website:
support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-360/how-to/update-xbox-360/system-updates.aspx "

Does x box 360 need upgradation to play the new games launching every year


Yes it does -- however, any new game that requires that your XBox 360 be updated to play will include the update on the game disc. You don't need to download updates yourself -- the games that need the update will have it on them.

I have the 360 and a game called starwars/tetris worlds it says i need a update to play how do i update to play it? i dont have xbox live

In this case the first thing you need to make sure is the game is supported on the Xbox 360. If the game came in a actual XBOX 360 game box then you should be OK there. If not you need to check the list at this link.

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/backwardcompatibilitygameslist.htm

Next if it is then you will need to get the update off the XBOX 360 website, then save it to you computer. After you do this you can save it to a USB drive or burn it to a disk to get the update on your XBOX 360. After this you will be able to play your game.

Note another option is that you can buy a 1 month game card to XBOX Live to allow you to download the updates you need.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

X-BOX 360 not playing games


Are you sure that in the system settings the xbox is set to Load game instead of boot to dashboard? This will be located on the blade on the far right of the dashboard. If no help, try this: First, a stupid step - Make sure a compatible game disc is in the xbox, and turn it off. If it continues to boot to dashboard upon powering up, you could always try removing the system updates by: 1. Turn the console off 2. Press and hold the small sync button on the front of the console (the one you use to connect new controllers) 3. Turn on the console whilst still holding the sync button 4. By the time it has booted to the dashboard, the updates should be cleared. As the first version of the dashboard did not have the option to boot to dashboard by default, game discs should start normally now. If this is the case, feel free to re-download the updates from xbox live. Hope this helps!
